I finished Fight Club a few months ago and it still blows my mind how good it was. Before that I read Choke, also by chuck Palanhiuk, and now I'm reading Invisible Monsters though I'm not loving it. So, anything similar to Fight Club out there? It doesn't have to have a twist ending, but something similarly nihilistic or completely insane would be cool.

EDIT: I'd rather avoid further Palanhiuk work, for now at least.

If you don't like fight club that's fine, but don't be a goon.

I've already read Cat's Cradle, definitely bizarre read.

I hear Fight Club is often compared to Fight Club

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.


I've got a handle on the fiction.

Try Some of Ben Elton's books. They are a great read, and along a similar vein as Chuck

What is this

Ben Elton is the most light hearted writer ever

If books had PEGI ratings, Gridlock, Stark and High Society would be PGs. Dead Famous and Chart Throb a 12. The rest would be Us.

Actually, Chart Throb is pretty close to what you're looking for.

Just for a good read, TS, try Past Mortem by Ben Elton. One of my all time favourite books, but its nowhere near Palahnuik, tbh.

Never read anything by Chuck, but i would imagine some Bret Easton Ellis books would suit you, as they are all pretty much satire. Rules Of Attraction and Glamorama are my favourites, and American Psycho is good too, i would stay away from The Informers though.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
