Fascinating book! I'd seen the movie, so knew what was going to happen, but that gave me more of a chance to look at style, structure and language as I read. And I found it to be exceptional.

This is an imaginative look at late twentieth century men, reacting to the society they (mostly) built for themselves. I don't want to get into a discussion of women's rights and how the last forty years have affected men, but found it interesting that the narrator of the novel identified the men at fight club as men who had been raised by single women. Hmmm. If you haven't read this book, check it out. It's like nothing you'll ever read again. Trust me. :-)
