Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredibly imaginative I purchased this book years ago, and I still think of it often. It was a random pick, but it turned out to be quite an incredible book. Although the concept of the narrative may seem strange to some, this novel is incredibly imaginative and whimsical. It does however deal with some serious themes about societal constructs, how society views outsiders and complicated human***relationships ***(SPOILER! or in this case human-stuffed animal) This would make an excellent bookclub pick, as it could illicit such strong conversational topics. I am still surprised that this novel has not received wide spread acclaim, it is truly a unique find. If you have a vivid imagination and enjoy sensibly dense reading, this is for you.
