Cole T., On of Our High School Reviews Weigh's in on "The Fight Club"
In his debut novel, Chuck Palahniuk showed himself to be his generation's most visionary satirist.? Fight Club's estranged narrator leaves his lackluster job when he comes under the thrall of Tyler Durden, an enigmatic young man who holds secret boxing matches in the basement of bars. There two men fight "as long as they have to." A gloriously original work that exposes what is at the core of our modern world.

Cole T. says:
Rating: 9 out of 10

"Enter the life of a materialistic insomniac who finds sleep in the comfort of others terminal illness. His perfect apartment with all his perfect furniture that perfectly defines him. A job that drones on and a recall formula he applies to death resulting malfunctions. This is his life and it’s ending one pointless moment at a time. Until of course he meets Tyler Durden, the man with the plan. The anarchist who uses mayhem as a passage to equality. It starts with a simple request to be punched in the face and leads to a fight; and leads to fight clubs under bars; and leads to the Parker Morris building stocked with a fresh supply of nitroglycerin. And for some reason, all of this has to do with a girl named Marla Singer.

'On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone will drop to zero.'

This book is revolutionary and outstandingly profound. The themes haunt me to this day and demand my interest. The writing style captures my eye and manages to keep it locked in every page. I recommend this to anyone searching for an exhilarating story with an extensive grip of philosophy. This is the type of book to change your life."
