Description

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. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter, and dark, anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world.

Professional reviews

"Palahniuk's bestselling debut novel, which was made into a movie starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, is revisited with this rousing narration by Jim Colby. With such memorable past performances from the two Hollywood actors, the challenge of breathing new life into this story is immense. Happily, Jim Colby delivers a raw intensity that is spot-on for the twisted mind of the protagonist. As the evil Tyler Durden, Colby is astonishing, capturing every inch of the character's darkness while still projecting his sense of humor. The result is a performance that draws its inspiration from Palahniuk's well-crafted characters and not from the memorable acting roles most will remember upon starting the first track. L.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
