Fight Club, A Fantasy?

Fight Club?  A Fantasy?

I was doing a google search of 1000 books to read.

Why? I’m a bookworm…duh.

And I came along a article in the guardian.co.uk on 1000 novels everyone must read.

I chose the Science Fiction and Fantasy as that’s what I read and write most.

There was a suprise on the list.

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

taken from the back cover of the book:

A godforsaken young man who discovers that his rage at living in a world filled with failure and lies cannot be pacified by an empty consumer culture.  Relief for him and his disenfranchised peers comes in the form of secret after-hours boxing matches held in the basements of bars.

Where in that means fantasy in the way the genre is interpretated as?

I ask you..for the love of God…

How can this be classified in the fantasy genre?

I ask you again, FIGHT CLUB, A FANTASY?

What is Fantasy?

Fantasy is a genre that uses magic and other supernatural forms as a primary element of plot,theme, and/or setting.

That’s taken from wikipedia…so…you debate whether it’s true or not, but I’m inclined to agree.

Fight club is not a fantasy…okay okay…MAYBE an urban fantasy…but even that’s stretching.

Heh, Fight Club a Fantasy…

That cracks me up.
