Is it appropriate to label [U]Fight Club[/U] as Nihilisitc? Does that not imply that Chuck, as an author, does not care about the world, his characters, etc. I think Nihilism is not present in the novel. I feel that Chuck cares immensesly. Thus, he write these novels to show the world just how messed up it really is. We hide behind our latte enemas and khakis, but there is deeper more penetrating problems than consumerism. Chuck takes us on a tour of the horrors of the world in his works. He shows what we could be, should be, or what we want to be. I see his novels as uplifting and inspiring. Do I interpret them wrongly?
