Rant by Chuck Palahniuk

rantAnother brain-twister from Chuck Palahniuk – I swear this one stopped me from sleeping.

Rant is an oral history of the life of Buster (aka Rant) Casey. It’s told by friends, family, acquantences and more. As you read the different points of view it becomes increaseingly hard to seperate fact and fantasy.. but once you get reading you’ll realise that’s quite an essential piece of the tail.

As per usual there’s a theory to be explored with Palahniuk. This time it’s time-travel, segregation, and germ-warfare. Quite a heady mix -but it all comes together VERY well.

I can’t say too much more about the content – or it’ll spoil the story.

But I really do recommend it, it’s a read that will make you think. Although not exactly a page-turner it will grip you and drive you back for the next instalment.
