F is for Fight Club.
I have never seen a more quotable book/movie than Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. I saw the movie when it came out and loved it. I got around to reading the book a few years back and found it very similar to the movie. I remember liking the ending a little better in the novel although I don’t exactly remember how they were different now.
The style of narrative is perfect for the story and everything about it just fits. I have read other books by Palahniuk and just couldn’t quite get in to them, but Fight Club inspires me to want to write a cult classic with quotes that still ring true almost 20 years later.
My favorite quotes:
“On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.”
“You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you’re satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you’ve got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you’re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you”
“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.”
