Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
What was I thinking when I felt trepidation upon seeing this title creep into my life? That it would be nothing more than a cheap cash-in on Palahniuk’s crop? That I’d be wasting my time?
Oh, silly me.
Sure, it picks up a decade later with our MC and Marla with a kid and a picket fence, but don’t let that fool you. Tyler never died. Ideas always pick up followers. It’s never the other way around.
Remember, the original Fight Club started under a veneer of normalcy, too, and it got really fucked-up. Well, just so you know, this does too. You might say it’s taking the franchise to whole new places.
I was sooo thrilled to learn that Cloe never died. What a trip.
So if I were to rank this little gem with other great titles out there, I think I can easily place it proudly in the Saga field, with a bit more blood and queasy notions than that esteemed title. Yup. Fight Club 2 is good. Very good.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
Oh, look, it’s my first crap book of the new year.
You rarely see a creator so determined to crap all over his fans, his creation, himself and storytelling in general.
