I havent read Fight Club, but i read Ghosts.. If you want to sample this author, call out a short story " Guts" on google. This guy is a,fabulous writer.....

Ready to dive into Fight Club! Palahnuik is a great writer. Oh, correction: the Palahnuik book I read is entitled "Haunted" -- not "Ghosts"
Nevertheless, I highly reccomend "Guts".... You can google it. It's only a few pages.

So far, the book is very masculine, highly nihilistic. Its simultaneously hilarious and scary-- utterly original.
Im digging it.

Ayunda (ayundabs) Sorry I haven't been a very active moderator guys! Is anyone else reading the book? I haven't started the book yet but I have watched the movie and I love it!
What are your thoughts on the writing style, Jodi? How is it both hilarious and scary?

Sara | 91 comments I haven't really been able to read anything lately, but I'm starting my spring break vacation today so hopefully I'll have more time to read and start this book.
