Chuck Palahniuk Ô Fight Club epub

It follows the experiences of an unnamed protagonist struggling with insomnia Inspired by his doctor's exasperated remark Mary Ann Evans in the 1850s spoke out against the notion that lady novelists were capable of producing only silly novels precious sentimental illogical and improbable claptrap while men produced high literature She changed her name to George Eliot and wrote as a gender neutral narrator highly educated and worldly and mostly transparent ie not sillyThe 1990s finds us again at a crossroads where literature is concerned with the rise of Oprah's book club and the whole genre of chick lit on the one hand in many cases just silly novels by lady novelists revivified and a sort of phallic anxiety heavy on the masculine literature on the other This second group I like to call guy crap It's not a bad label ; there's some good stuff in guy crap just like there is on Oprah's book list Guy crap includes genre fiction Dennis Lehane Jonathan Lethem as well as insistent intellectualism David Foster Wallace Martin Amis Paul Auster and of course the violent psych you out latter day Robbe Grillet disturbances of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk Some of these are done well and some of them are just as silly as the lady novelists' claptrap Fight Club is one of those novels where the unrelenting GUY ness of narrator and storyline begins as an intriguing challenge and ends up fatiguing and gimmicky In case there's anyone out here who hasn't either read the book or seen the movie I won't spoil anything I promise It's a book about a bunch of young men frustrated in their low on the ladder white collar day jobs and the emptiness of modern society who meet routinely to pound each other close to death and plot destruction on a less personal scale The novel is Palahniuk's testament to the counter culture of yuppiedom a world in which sualor and presentability upward mobility and civil disobedience live side by side and take each other's measure daily Palahniuk asks pointed uestions about the world we live in and his prose is the strength of this novel he keeps you interested even when you realize how much you hate what he's sayingAnd you should hate what Palahniuk is saying Because at the heart of the novel sits a troubled foundation It's not the acts of juvenile for the most part sociopathy or even the ultimate real pathology the characters fall into What you should hate as or after you read is the book's central three part idea that a the disaffected youth of the video game generation really do hold the truth about society ; b society in turn is nothing but a reflection of the video game generation's disaffected world view ; and c once a disaffected youth of the video game generation always a disaffected youth of the video game generation there is no improvement there is no connection there is no healing there is no out because boys never grow up Even the support group conceit that could represent the narrator's redemptive attempt at relation turns out to be just a device as egotistical for the character as it is ultimately for the storyline Relation between people doesn't exist not really you don't talk about fight club We're all just wandering bruised through the wasted LCD landscape staking out our independence like rebel teenagers promising to blow up whatever we disagree withPalahniuk has said he wrote this book as a kind of provocation to get back at a publisher for turning down his earlier manuscript I wonder if he peed in the publisher's soup too it wouldn't altogether surprise me

Fight ClubThat insomnia is not suffering the protagonist finds relief by impersonating a seriously ill person in several support gro I believe in love at first sight and I’m talking about books A few pages into The Dispossessed by Ursula K LeGuin and I knew that this was the book I had been looking for my whole life The same for Robert A Heinlein’s brilliant The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress These books are speaking to me the author and I are sharing a conversation and I am hearing what I want to hear but the writer through the osmosis of shared visions is saying for me what I want to say I had nebulous thoughts and that writer succinctly stated set down in black and white what for me was pre language thought onlyChuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club is another and Palahniuk speaks for a generation; he boils down and dilutes what we all want to say but felt only The primal fears and drives that we know deep down but before this book could give no voice; Palahniuk has found a pigment to paint on our collective cave wall What Palahniuk illustrates in words is Edvard Munch’s The Scream amplified and multiplied by ten million “I am Joe’s fear of death” He is talking about repressed anger spread out over an actuarial table of life expectancy Stripped down to fighting weight and stepping into the ring with borrowed gloves this book is a gritty explanation of the dark side of Generation X men “What you see at Fight Club is a generation of men raised by women” This uote is the hard nucleus around which the novel forms growing fruitlike around a solid core The next great definitive uote is “The first rule about Fight Club is that you don’t talk about fight Club” This is a charismatic catch phrase to be sure but it is than this Palahniuk goes to great length albeit subtle to reveal that much of what is felt and experienced in Fight Club is either beyond or beneath language inexpressible Palahniuk is grasping at deep roots One of the foundations of feminist thought is communication the need for women to relate to one another and to talk about feelings Men are encouraged to express themselves as well and Palahniuk takes time the same as Hemingway in The Sun Also Rises to draw a misdirected connection to the narrator’s affinity for self help groups and his need to cry I can hear the echoes of Jake Barnes crying by himself and of Romero’s desperate but heroic fist fighting accomplishments Palahniuk resurrects the strong uiet type and raises him dead from the grave in a post modern zombie like caricature; Fight Club’s protagonists are still “30 year old boys” trying to be what they were never raised to be I cannot help but compare this book with Bernard Malamud’s The Natural I saw both film before reading the book and both film adaptations have significant variances from the original literature Fight Club was brilliant and disturbing all at the same time
