Rant by Chuck Palahniuk
Rant Casey is a redneck who spreads rabies through really prolific amounts of cunnilingus. Also, a group of misfits crash cars into one another in an interesting game called “Party Crashing.”
This “oral history” is told through a sequence of interviews after Casey’s death. (?)
What Palahniuk’s novel lacks in meaningful content it makes up for with a dearth of style, a delight in gross out shocks, and a few now work out tricks.
I’m irritated to have bought this in hardback. Given how low my opinion of Haunted, I should have known better, but I somehow hoped Chuck might have gotten some of his skills back. He hasn’t. I’ll not make the mistake of purchasing another of his books.
At least it was mercifully short.
