Oh and I think the ending is just brilliant, plain and simple.

The person responsible for producing this film and by that I mean taking the responsibility if the film flopped lost his job over the belief in how important this film was and how much it needed to be made.

Excellent film guv'nor

Well he's credited as 'narrator' I think but I'm pretty sure Jack is his name... we never actually get told as a bus goes past just as he's about to tell Marla... a big clue if you were looking!

At what point did people spot the twist? I have to say it was very very late on, in fact it was the hotel room scene for me!
Same - I felt so thick when all my friends told me they'd guessed earlier on.

i duno, i just thought it was a mix of the two. insomnia being a sleeping disorder that leads the narrator to create tyler. or something

What happens in the end to fight Club? Everyone dies? If so then it imght be a case of nihilsm.

A true nihilist would believe in nothing, have no loyalties, and no purpose other than, perhaps, an impulse to destroy
It's real cool when he shoots himself in the mouth at the end.

I've got a great idea..... how about you give away the ending to everyone who hasn't seen it? That'd be fun.
