As cliche as it may seem ... the book is always better than the movie. In the case of Fight Club, I thought the movie made the book justice.
The movie was almost perfect. The only thing missing from the movie was the way that the unnamed protagonist meets Tyler Durden. The book version was amazing!
The words at the end of chapter three resonated with me. Sometimes a dwell on the thought that I spent countless hours and days working on a project for a mere moment of satisfaction. That minute of perfection IS worth the effort.
I wonder why the Edward Norton's character didn't meet Tyler at the nudist beach. Brad Pitt, Nude, building a giant hand shadow....would have been cinematic gold!
Here's to your words Chuck Palahniuk!
