Unfortunately dull and pointlessly gross.

"Rant" is written as a collection of anecdotes about the life of Rant Casey, a fictional charismatic redneck who spreads some kind of epidemic. After an interesting introductory section about a salesman who meets Rant's father on a plane, the anecdotes became random, confusing (what the hell are those suns and moons supposed to be indicating?), disgusting, and--worst of all--boring.

I managed to soldier through the chapter about Rant identifying folks by sniffing the used condoms and tampons in their trash. I quit reading it shortly after the two-page description of him picking his nose and gluing it all over his bedroom wall. I'm not generally prim or squeamish--hell, I'm a Garth Ennis fan--but this stuff seemed pointless. Gross for the sake of gross. I wish I could remember who recommended this book to me so I'd know who to stop listening to.
