Not my favorite Palanhiuk book, but it's an enjoyable read. There are a million interesting themes swimming about, almost too many. I especially liked the format. Palahniuk is a master of voice, and Rant is no exception.
As I was reading Susan Boyle's memoir, it was completely stunning. When I first caught a glimpse of her on YouTube singing a rendition of "I Dreamed A Dream," it just blew me away. When I look back on her early years and her personal life as a train-wreck, I made comparisons to my life on what really happened to me that day. There are a couple of things that both Boyle and I have in common: we both have learning difficulties and have a strong passion for music. The lesson I've learned from her was to not label yourself or other individuals with a disability in a negative way, by taking out the three words and you have the "ability" to do others things that is worth your talent. Everybody with different advantages have the passion and talents they're born with. God has given everyone a gift of their abilities for every field of interest they're willing to pursue especially when they're born with those kind of advantages. I think her book "The Woman I Was Born to Be" has done it all, and I salute Susan for that.
