“What are you doing today?” I asked him before diving into my orange juice. Jessie speared some more eggs before answering.
“I'm off to Seattle to get a new microphone. You know mine's about to die.” I nodded thoughtfully while clearing the table and putting the plates in the sink. It was unfortunately true; last band practise the microphones had cut out and we'd had to shut down early. Aidan wasn't impressed.
“Right, well I'm off to the clearing with a book, 'kay?” I wasn't even sure he heard me, he was so absorbed in his magazine. From what I could see it was an interview with All Time Low, a band that recently had Jessie obsessed. Rolling my eyes I thumped him round the back of the head on my way down the hall, laughing as he inhaled the last of his toast. Moron.
The day wasn't sunny, but I wasn't surprised. The weather had been fair yesterday, and even that was too much to expect of La Push's temperaments. I'd picked up the lack of sunlight pretty quickly, and learned that leaving a building without a raincoat was pretty stupid if you wanted to stay dry. The weather was overcast- not raining, but quite cold. It didn't bother or deter me from my planned escapade, so I grabbed my Narnia copies (what? They're awesome) and threw them in a backpack with a raincoat and headed out.
In the woods surrounding the house, it was a regular weekend activity for the older siblings in the family to go hiking for the day. Coby had lost interest after a while, preferring to go round to friend's houses. They would have gone into town if they were able, but come on. This w...

...eeding up. All three began to shake and I seriously considered trying to bolt, but of course my legs had other ideas and hung uselessly.
Paul was the first to snap, his usual temper winning out. His tremors began to increase and get worse, rendering him a violent blur. I was pretty sure my eyes were bugging out of my skull. No way in hell was this normal. So busily was I looking at Paul, I failed to notice Embry's shakes getting worse until they lunged at each other, deep rumbling growls vibrating from their chests.
Then they were twisting, contorting, flying through the air, bodies writhing and turning. A loud ripping sound caught my breath in my throat, head jerking forwards, eyes following the two boys as they were falling, falling, falling...
Paws hit the ground, along with fur, tails, sharp teeth-
I fell out of my tree with a strangled squeak.

- In Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, the narrator creates another identity through his schizophrenia and dissociative personality disorder. While the narrator’s other personality is portrayed as a therapeutic creation focused on bettering society and himself through destruction followed by rebuilding, the narrator actually creates Tyler Durden to destroy his true identity, become the person he wishes he was, and destroy those around him without holding any personal responsibility. Even though the narrator pretends that he has no control over his second identity, Tyler Durden acts according the the narrator’s desires; however, with this arrangement, the narrator can pretend that he is innocent...

- Doubles in Fight Club and Cofer's The Other In the current age of technology and capitalism, many people get caught up in trying to define their individuality with mass produced goods.

This alter ego, named Tyler Durden, is portrayed as a completely psychologically and physically separate being throughout the movie.

- Analysis of “Fight Club” For years David Fincher has directed some of the most stylish and creative thrillers in American movies. His works include: Aliens 3, Seven, The Game and Fight Club. Each of these films has been not only pleasing and fun to watch but each has commented on society, making the viewers think outside the normal and analyze their world. Fight Club is no exception, it is a multi-layered film with many subplots and themes, but primarily it is a surrealistic description of the status of the American male at the end of the 20th century....

Materialism is a reoccurring theme as the narrator mentions how he has worked his entire life for the Ikea items in his apartment. He tried to fill the void in his life by buying worthless, meaningless stuff.... [tags: Fight Club Analysis]

- Fight Club “The first rule about fight club is that you don’t talk about fight club” (Palahniuk 87). The story of Fight Club was very nail biting; you never knew what was going to happen next. There were so many things that led up to a complete plot twist. It was amazing how closely directed and written Chuck Palahniuk and David Fincher’s versions were. However, the role in both that stood out to me the most was the role of Marla. Marla was the biggest influence in discovering the narrator (or Jack’s) identity....
