Unfortunately, watching the movie first ruined the book for me. Oh, I do not say that the book is bad, or that it is so much worse than the movie. The problem is that the book and the movie are so much alike that I cannot judge to book on its own merits: I always heard Edward Norton’s voice when reading the book; every time Tyler Durden was mentioned, I had a mental image of Brad Pitt, Big Bob looked like Meat Loaf, and Angel Face looked like Jared Leto, complete with bleached hair.
I have rarely seen such a complete adaptation of a book; congratulations to David Finch. But I will have to read another one of Palahniuk’s books until I can really judge his writing.
