With more than 300,000 copies sold, Chuck Palahniuk's brilliant first novel and cult classic is being reissued with a new Introduction by the author An underground classic since its first publication in 1996, Fight Club is widely recognized as one ...
as one of the most original and provocative novels of the last decade. Now the author adds his own voice to the critical debate he generated. In a new Introduction, he discusses the various interpretations in the popular media of Fight Club and the movie it inspired, as well as his personal reactions to the work's reception and the influence that the Fight Club phenomenon has already had on our culture. Chuck Palahniuk's darkly funny first novel tells the story of a disenfranchised young man frustrated with his bureacratic job and superficial relationships and disillusioned with the consumer culture's prepackaged pleasures. Relief for him and his peers comes in the form of Tyler Durden, the intensely charismatic inventor of Fight Club. Waiters, clerks, and middlemen seek out the visceral satisfaction of secret after-hours boxing matches in the basements of bars, thinking they have found a way to live beyond their confining and stultifying lives. But in Tyler's world there are no rules, no limits, no brakes.

會看小說當然是因為對於電影的印象超級深刻，不過小說倒是有點普通，可能因為早知道人格分裂的部分，所以看起來就沒有電影那麼精采，但對於反資本主義以及個人價值的部份，由於是小說倒是篇幅比較多一些，但卻沒有看到對於破壞之後的重建，也因此對於這些極端的觀點認同但無法接受。畢竟解決問題的方式有很多，可以選擇製造衝突，但也可以尋求共識避免衝突，而且看來選擇製造衝突的Jack or Tyler，以及跟隨他們的群眾們，並沒有因此而找到自己的價值，更迷失在熱衷破壞社會秩序的行為裡面。Continua...Nascondi
