    I can t do it I can t finish this book Usually Palahniuk creates fairly unsympathetic characters, as in this book, and that I m used to Because it WORKS the plot lines of his books are always ridiculous in a totally fascinating way, which makes up for the stupid characters However, Rant bored the fuck out of me I tried I read than half and I do not care about thi

    I m not a Chuck P fan simply because he is edgy or because I get off on the so called depravity of his often violent and sexual themes I know a few folks like that What I enjoyed most about this book was the structure, the measured reveal Based on the oral tradition, each chapter is composed of brief statements from a cast of dozens Individually, these narrators are hopel

    WTF did I just read and why did I finish it This book is a mish mash of narrators, grossness, time travel, car crashes, a rabies plague, segregation and dull characters I kept hoping it would improve and then it was just over This story somewhat follows a dull witted character named Buster or Rant as he s better known who gets off on catching rabies His attraction to pain and rab

    What the hell Let me first say I love Chuck P I love his usually disturbing stories and weird characters I don t mind the fact that he seems a little crazy, and I don t mind all of the sex he writes about I also don t mind the gory gross factor I like him This book was just bad in my opinion Maybe if I knew it had an amazing ending I could have pushed through the last half, but after the

    Chuck Palahniuk is the literary equivalent of punk rock In a book that pulls on varied and important themes, Rant An Oral History of Buster Casey manages to feature an exceptionally peculiar storyline that never stops at its primary goal being a hell of a good time This is a book that deals with important topics, like religion and the meaning of life, but doesn t keep itself neatly organi

    A Brief CaveatIt feels somewhat strange and almost in bad taste to be reviewing a Chuck Palahnuik book because this just happened If you don t want to search through the link Paquita one of the coolest peeps on Goodreads made mention of the fact that Chuck P had recommended the book she had just read and if she had known that, then she probably wouldn t have read the book because she doesn t care much f

    This is the story of a small town hell raiser named Buster Rant Casey who did some slightly unusual things when he was growing up like collecting bucketfuls of his classmate s teeth Young Rant also angers animals than Steve Irwin so that they ll bite him and infect him with rabies which he deliberately spreads to his class mates After he grows up and moves to the city, Rant joins a disenfranchised part of soci

    It s not everyday you read a book about rabies, the origins of God, time travel, and bumper cars Seeing that this is a Chuck Palahniuk book, I shouldn t be surprised that this novel hops barriers and barrels through genres without a single fuck given for your comfort or confusion level Buster Rant Casey can tell you what you had for breakfast three days ago, what kind of flowers you have waiting in a vase back at home,

    History is nothing except monsters or victims Or witnesses Chuck Palahniuk, RantHE was close He was so damn close He just didn t close it at the end It was a poem that ended in a whimper The mixture was nearly perfect, just not flammable But don t say Chuck didn t try I imagine Palahniuk had Ballard s Crash and Benford s Timescape, several Oral Histories, and perhaps even Hofstadter s G del, Escher, Bach An Eternal G

    First off, a disclaimer I love Chuck P like a brother If the man was on dialysis I d give him a kidney even if I only had one good one left and consider it payback for all the stories of his that I ve enjoyed since discovering his work The lowdown Rant tells the story of Rant Casey a small town kid that turns his little town on it s ear before moving to the city to continue his work The book is comprised of accounts from people that k
