Ten years after the events in the first novel, the protagonist (aka Jack/Travis/Tyler), is now married to Marla and has a regular job and a kid. He lives a mundane life and keeps his alter-ego/split personality (Tyler Durden) at bay through heavy medication. However, Tyler is starting to resurface, and Project Mayhem is ramping up again. This is a revisit to Tyler's crazy fight club world, which is a sarcastic, satirical look at our materialistic world. Being a graphic novel only visually highlights the bizarre images and situations that Palahniuk describes in his books. Fans of the first book (and/or movie) will enjoy this continuation; the rest will probably feel out of the loop and lost reading this strange, winding story.
