The film pleased me so much i rused out to buy the book. I had read other reviews on people saying either the book or film was great but not both. So i wasn't expecting it to be as good as the film. I loved it, one of my favourite books. You need to pay full attention to what you are reading otherwise you won't get the full cleverness of Chuck Palahniuks amazing way to mess with your mind and make you think all the way through. Even though i knew the end i still couldn't wait to turn the page, i just couldn't put i down!

As like most people I saw the film first, which was unbelievably good, so much so that I watched it again for a second time directly afterwards. As with most of the greatest films of our time, fight club was also based on the book. Written by Chuck Palahniuk, this apparently began as a short shory which he further expanded upon to create this masterpiece. It remains short, and as with the other reviewers I also read it within a couple of days, but I feel this is more of a positve feature than a negative as it really was a pageturner. It reads very similarly to the film in places, with some of the film's script borrowing directly from it, although the book presents further details upon characters and their backrounds. I'll try and keep this short, if you thought the film was good, buy the book! You will not be dissapointed.

  Wow. :)

I admit I watched the film before I read the book, and I felt guitly about not reading it, so I read it. And gosh. It was so immense. Arrrghh. I felt my head implode with the psychology of Tyler Durden and fight club and project mayhem and the ethics and the symbolism of it all.

It is a short read, but like the reveiwer before me, I read it slow. (Some bits I read over because I was like "Oh my god, nooo?")

It took a week to come to the conclusion after I finished the but the book but I decided, the book is better than the film. Just. A must-read.

This is of all time my favourite book, also movie. I sat in starbucks one morning after buying this for £8 (bargin). When I finally started to read I couldn't put it down. I happen to be a fast reader anyway but I read this a little slower because I wanted to soak it all in. This is a breathtaking book by any means after the movie and book it made me re think my whole life.
