    Rant: The Oral Biography of Buster Casey is widely known as one of the Chuck Palahniuk’s most complicated reads, a mind-blowing “out-there” novel in what is typically considered a very extreme bibliography. The unconventional narrative style, plethora of contradicting narrators, and indecipherable subject matter all combine into one oral biography of a complex, incomprehensible man by the name of Buster “Rant” Casey—a man who liked to be bitten by venomous animals, a man who could discern a person’s

    Marla Singer: Character Analysis Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk is a great novel, which captures readers from the very first page. The novel has 3 major characters: Tyler Dyrden, Marla singer and the narrator. Marla Singer is a strange persona. Shabby, neither too young nor beautiful, she appears as a part of “triangle” together with Tyler and the narrator. Her presence in the novel is motivated by her important role in plot development. Her presence and actions change narrator’s life completely

    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. Fight Club, in both Palahniuk and Fincher’s

    "If you haven’t already noticed, all my books are about a lonely person looking for some way to connect with other people." This quote is from Chuck Palahniuk’s book of non-fiction stories titled Stranger Than Fiction. This quote sums up the exact nature of the protagonist of both of the novels I chose to read, Fight Club and Choke, both written by Chuck Palahniuk. By using this concept, Palahniuk has the ability to make the reader feel for a character who is far less than what is seen as an ideal

    What did the film Distort? A film adaptation of a book can be like hearsay. The author writes a novel to send a certain message.

The film producers then take its, leaves out major events, change the ending and make a film with a completely different message than the author.

    Fight Club and I "What you see at fight club is a generation of men raised by women . . .. I'm a thirty-year-old boy, and I'm wondering if another woman is really the answer I need." These words are from Chuck Palahniuk's novel Fight Club. Tyler Durden is the alter ego, and only known name of the fictional narrator of the novel. Tyler suffers from Dissociative Personality Disorder, Antisocial Personality Disorder, Primary Insomnia, and probably a host of other disorders that I am not qualified

    Repression and Subversion in Fight Club "The first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. The second rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club" (48). The first two rules governing the underground fighting rings of Chuck Palahniuk's novel Fight Club serve as more than an attempt to maintain the secrecy of the illegal clubs. The explicit definitions of what the novel's characters can and cannot think and talk about set the stage for the story's examination of the repressive

    Catcher in the Rye

    “Catcher in the Rye”, written by J.D Salinger, is a coming-of-age novel. Narrated by the main character, Holden Caulfield, he recounts the days following his expulsion from his school. This novel feels like the unedited thoughts and feelings of a teenage boy, as Holden narrates as if he is talking directly to readers like me. I disliked “Catcher in the Rye”. There seems to be no actual, concrete plot to this novel. The novel is essentially a really long flashback of the three days Holden spent in
