Review: Fight Club 2

Pretty much everyone has seen the film Fight Club.  I will admit I enjoyed the film but have yet to read the book that it is based on. But even though I have not read the novel I jumped at the chance to read and review it's sequel.
If you enjoyed the film I do think that you will enjoy this continuation of the story. Sebastian and Marla have moved on from Project Mayhem and even have started a family.

So Sebastian has been trying to keep Tyler buried in his subconscious, by taking his prescribed medications.  But Marla misses the hot sex that she had with Tyler. So she has been tampering with Sebastian's meds. "Tyler Durden Lives"...literally. He comes back and so does all of the madness that we saw in the Fight Club film. If that were not the whole situation but now they have a son, and he is in the middle of this. Which makes for an even more interesting story.

Another thing that this sequel proposes is just who is Tyler Durden? What is he exactly? These questions open up a whole 'nother scenario that I cannot get too deep into, and even cannot share a photo from the series because it is too spoilerly. 

The author, Chuck Palahniuk even stars in this sequel. I know strange, right? I can't talk about his role in this either because guessed it. Spoilers!?!

I know a few fans were disappointed with the way that this ended, but seriously? You cannot take a franchise like Fight Club too serious anyways. Yes, the ending was way over the top , kinda rushed, and dumb. But it is what it is, and I enjoyed the ride there. I decided to rate this 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. I really enjoyed this and I think fans of the film, and possibly the book will too.
