    "The books are never about what you think they are about. Survivor is really about our education system because I feel, more often than not, kids are sort of taught or trained to be the best possible cogs in some big corporate machine. They're not really taught in an empowered way that they can start their own company so that they can create and run their own lives. They are sort of taught to be just good employees, to just fit in."

    Fight Club sets a mega- high standard.

    yeah, i've only read one of his books, Choke, but next time i'm out at the library i'll probably check out some more. He gets the thumbs up from me.

    YOU NEED TO READ IT.
    anyone read diary? is it good, its been sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read.
    and survivor....words caan't describe how genious that novel.

    i was wondering what other people think about the ending to fight club...its set up so that it can be interpreted that he is eiter dead or in an institution...what yall think.

    no, it would make a great show, but wouldnt follow the book, and there would be multiple seasons with people stranded on islands and in africa..

    same situation. it's sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. it's so fucking depressing. i start it, and never finish it. it's depressing the way a sunny, but too hot to do anything Sunday is.

    Diary is a good, quick read. It's actually really depressing past the first few chapters, too.
