Chuck Palahniuk's startling and outrageous debut novel, basis of the hit movie starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.THE FIRST RULE about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots of bars across the country, young men with whitecollar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded just as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything.

Der Beginn Tyler besorgt mir einen Job als Kellner, und dann schiebt mir Tyler eine Pistole in den Mund und sagt, als ersten Schritt zum ewigen Leben musst du sterben. Lange Zeit waren Tyler und ich jedoch die besten Freunde. Ich werde ständig gefragt, ob ich über Tyler Durden Bescheid gewusst habe....
I saw the movie several years ago. I am going to assume most people have seen the movie, and know what the deal is, and I'm going to write this review with that assumption, so here is your chance to stop reading. I was not expecting a nice story. I was expecting something that messes with one'...
