No. 31 - Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey

by Chuck Palahniuk

Started: August 18
Finished: August 22

Notes: I picked this novel up a few months ago to get it signed by Chuck at a "Fight Club" showing downtown, but I couldn't make it. So, finally getting around to reading the book.

Mini review: Because it took so long for me to get into the story, I didn't find this one as gripping as his earlier works, though it still has a good share of the dark wit and modern insight this author is known for. There is a speculative fiction element to this tale, but you don't get into most of it until the last 60 or so pages of the book, which is really when the book gets good, just when you figure out what's been going on behind the scenes the whole time.
