Did the narrator had a choice?
For some reason. I though while i read Fight Club that the narrator knew since childhood (or around college) how his life would go (boring and meaningless job and life)and pretty much gave up to that since he though there was nothing he could do to change that (until tyler) but then tyler brought all that chaos and freedom it to its exaggeration (the space monkeys and project mayhem). Sorry for being unclear, i think my point is, even with marla and tyler, with the way he was, he really did not have another choice or way for him than the one in the novel?
