Reviews

Rant is fast and true...and so funny that your facial muscles soon tire * Guardian * This is a wonderful book and the author is never short of wonderful ideas - they fizz from every page. Palahniuk's world might be a freak-show, but it's one that makes a disturbing amount of sense * Daily Telegraph * Palahniuk's fiction shows a rare bravery and occasionally hits true brilliance. Rant may not only be his best book yet, but the best by any novelist in some time * Sunday Herald * The twisted genius behind Fight Club delivers another literary gem... It's a deranged, hiliarious and unique novel * Maxim * It's a sort of Fight Club on wheels... When Palahniuk puts his foot on the throttle and pulls all the various voices towards a spectacular conclusion, in every sense, Rant quickly becomes a definite scream * Daily Mirror *
