It's Fight Club. Read it. Watch the film. They are both great. The End.

Bleak but a whirlwind of a read
I see we're all violating rules 1 and 2 on Fight Club ;-) . Not a book for everybody. It's a dark but thrilling look at the societal cocoon we've created that trades true living for a continuous yet ultimately unsatisfying dose of short-term pleasure and risk-aversion. I think this was Palahniuk's first novel, and he'll suck you in quickly and have you tearing down the highway at 180 mph in no time. If you can get past the nihilism, you'll find yourself thinking about where you stand on this and what your response is.

A MUST READ FOR ALL
This is a must read for everyone. After not reading for most of my teens, this book inspired me to pick up a book instead of flipping through tv channels. The book is about how main character, Jack, becomes friends with the erratic Tyler Durden. Tyler leads jack from his life of normality, to a life of action and lunacy. Following this life, Jack learns the disturbed truth of who Tyler Durden really is. This book will keep you reading to the end. The one thing you should keep on your mind while reading is, Who is Tyler Durden?

I love this book. Palahniuk has a very interesting writing style, one based on few descriptions and many actions. This drives the book through the reader's head at a very fast pace, which fits the story perfectly. Don't read this book if you are averse to sexual or violent descriptions, or are a huge proponent of consumerist-materialist culture. If you're trying to get started with this author, this is a good place to start.
