The movie is decent but doesn't touch the book. I mean the meat and potatoes of the story is there and that is what is most important but there were alot of little things that were missing in the movie. Also, my favorite scene in the book was downplayed greatly in the movie. It happens because it was a heavily talked about part but it comes and goes without much concern. I was bummed.

Fucker, 2 words make it more than acceptable: HENRY ROLLINS

They did it more like a radio show, with different actors reading the different roles. Henry Rollins played one of the mercenaries/body guard/soldier for hire dudes.

Don't read anymore Chuck P books.




What is wrong with reading Palahnuik books?



I mean I'm sure the answer you want to give me is something about them being overrated but dig deep and give me an explanation why generally entertaining books aren't worth reading?


I would or could never call an author or another readers opinion overrated. My favorite authors concisest of Anthony Burgess, George Orwell, Ray Bradbury, William Faulkner, and John Steinbeck. So it would be easy for some one to say my taste is overrated. That's not my beef with Chuck P at all. I have read Choke, Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, Lullaby, and Survivor. Personally I only really enjoyed Survivor. In my opinion it seems like he just goes out of his way to write weird books instead of letting it come out on its own. In reading his books it seems like he said strange and weird worked before so may as well keep it up.

In a way I guess it would make sense but if someone is reading and enjoy other works of his, why would you suggest telling someone to stop?

And I could easily say if someones work is overrated. Twilight is a prime example of this. From a literary stance Stephanie Meyer is a terrible author. She uses about 4 descriptive words over and over again. Her story, while trying to be a metaphor for positive Christian living, also tells teenage girls that they should persue the "wrong" guy as well as saying it's okay to be insanely obsessive over him as well. Yet, she's sold millions of books and the movies are retardedly popular.

The Twilight books read like something a fat, antisocial, high school goth girl would write in her tinkerbell notebook she got from Hot Topic.
