One Hell Of A BookMy absolute favorite aspect of reading is humor. I love humor dearly, and it is definetely the most profound literary mechanic. It is a solid way to communicate feelings, thoughts, and makes a book more fun. With that being said, I am reading Rant by Chuck Palahniuk. Before I get into the book (WITHOUT spoilers) let me just add a little tidbit about what a great author Chuck is...******* of laughter, by chapter three, if not before that. As in most of Chuck's book he uses the Trinity archetype, appearance vs. reality, and a whole bunch of mind convulsing imagery. As a warning Chuck is not for the faint of heart or those who have a deep sense of morality. As for the book, Rant is a fast paced and often juicy (Oh yes, I went there) oral biography of the life of Buster "Rant" Casey. When the novel starts, Rant Casey is already dead, this is slightly disappointing because we never get to know what Rant is actually thinking or even what he is really like. What is immediatly derived though, is Rant's obsession with the facades of people and all their bullshit. A thing to keep in mind while reading is that things aren't always what they seem. To finish this thing up, read Rant, it makes you think and it is fun. A win-win scenario.
