Great book...makes a strong social statement of misguided, disgruntled and disaffected youths of the country. The author writes in such a way that will keep you as confounded as the main character...he bends time writes scenes within scenes. This contributes greatly to the huge plot twist revealed at the end.

As brilliant as the books is, the Brad Pitt/Ed Norton movie actually conveys the passion of Tyler(Pitt) and the bitterness of the main character (Norton) a lot better than the book does. Also , the plot and flow of the story came across much clearer to me on film than in the book (I saw the movie first).
