Buster “Rant” Casey just may be the most efficient serial killer of our time. A high school rebel, Rant Casey escapes from his small town home for the big city where he becomes the leader of an urban demolition derby called Party Crashing. Rant Casey will die a spectacular highway death, after which his friends gather the testimony needed to build an oral history of his short, violent life. With hilarity, horror, and blazing insight, Rant is a mind-bending vision of the future, as only Chuck Palahniuk could ever imagine.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charles Bowen | 2/13/2014

    " Not too many characters to admire or even like in this book. I felt like it tried a little too hard to be shocking and I wasn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 1/25/2014

    " Four different kinds of weird; but I liked it. "

    " audiobook recommended! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Oas | 1/21/2014

    " I couldn't put it down, I liked it better than Fight Club. By far my favorite Palahniuk book so far! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alessandra Fissinger | 1/9/2014

    " I liked this one alot "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avahra | 1/4/2014

    " This wasn't my favorite Chuck P book but it was still very engaging. I had a hard time putting it down even though it took me down a mental trip of what the fuck. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Munro | 12/29/2013

    " This book is actually very science fiction, which was a pleasant surprise for me. But of course it still comes with all the anti-establishment weirdness and comic genius I've come to expect from Palahniuk. Highly recommended :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 12/26/2013

    " I love this very odd book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 11/29/2013

    " I adore this book. I am reading it again for the third time. Dark humor and infectious diseases abound. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 11/23/2013

    " My second favorite Palahniuk book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 11/15/2013

    " Great story from an original. Palahniuk writes like Vonnegut but is darker and more outrageous at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dean Mansfield | 11/14/2013

    " Read this at your own peril! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Hada | 11/13/2013

    " This is by far the best of his works for me. Schechner and linear theory..all in an oral biography. Very worth it for those interested in performance art studies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Fleming | 8/8/2013

    " Rant is my absolute favorite book. It's written in an oral biography style which takes a little getting used to but it gives you the chance to see things from everyone's perspective not just the main characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Doyle | 3/10/2013

    " Chuck's so sick, took a while to get into the stride, but it's awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob Laux | 2/20/2013

    " It took awhile to get used to this style of storytelling. But oh how creative to write in this manor. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Rant. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gil | 12/28/2012

    " stopped reading it because i can't stand the way it's written. the whole book is like a menage of an E true hollywood story. the story is told via an interview style of ppl retelling/small town gossip of details regarding the protagonist. couldn't get used to this style so i stopped reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hayley Warren | 12/25/2012

    " Most insane and twisted ending. Favorite Palahniuk by far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Cas | 12/17/2012

    " Kind of hard to follow at first, but once you realize what's happening, it's pretty hard to put down. Like most of Palahniuk's books, don't pick it up if you're easily offended. There's incest (kind of), pregnant teenagers, raging erections and rabies, among other things... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 6/30/2012

    " Like nothing you have read before. You will want to start all over again once you finish.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 4/12/2012

    " this book was just the best thing ever!i am awed--chuck palahniuk is a genius "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirra Williams | 1/17/2012

    " I really loved this book. The style of the oral biography is very new to me, but it was very interesting. The ending was a bit confusing and lacked some of the books origional charm that is found in the rest of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenya | 12/2/2011

    " I listened to this on audio and loved it. I think that it would have sucked if I would have just tried to read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 11/7/2011

    " Brilliantly fun. Some vulgar parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 6/28/2011

    " My favorite. Clever, exciting, and convoluted. One of the best books I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 6/28/2011

    " It was interesting and completely unexpected. Palahniuk throws in some twists and turns that you would never really expect. It was a difficult read for me personally, but I would absolutely recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynsii | 6/27/2011

    " Started out very slow and it was difficult getting used to the style and the characters. The ending made up for anything I didn't like about the book though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kassandra | 6/20/2011

    " It is 1:00am and I've been reading this none stop waiting waiting for this to get good. It just never happened, there were parts of this that I enjoyed but other then that it was a waste of time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 6/11/2011

    " This was Chuck's best work in my opinion. There were many parts that were funny and many parts that were a little disgusting, but that's what one should expect from Chuck. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy Sue | 6/7/2011

    " 10 stars if possible. Any time I hear the phrase "Party Crasher," I think of this book and what it means in that world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen | 5/29/2011

    " I feel like I should feel more strongly about this book than I do -- like I should have absolutely hated it or I should be raving about its brilliance and layers and interesting plot twists... but I just thought it was okay. Not bad, but not phenomenal... just alright. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 5/26/2011

    " My absolute favorite Palahniuk book. A story about an interesting young man and his love for odd diseases. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 5/23/2011

    " Really good book with a great non-traditional format and sci-fi twist to Palahniuk's signature "dirty side of humanity" tales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessie | 5/16/2011

    " I couldn't finish this book. The story was good and had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, I did NOT like how the story was being told, so I brought it back to the library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 5/16/2011

    " too weird. but I guess that's Palahniuk's style. Not for me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 5/15/2011

    " Of Chuck Palahniuk's more recent books, this would have to be my favorite. Although the last few novels have been a little lacking i did find rant to be on par with some of the older works. I really fond the oral biography style to be interesting and different. I quite enjoyed it. "
