That’s easy – ice fishing This entire novel is an orgy of absurdity Nothing in it makes any sense at all The only thing that makes sense is how much I enjoyed reading it and how much I’m looking forward to reading Penguin Lost

Ebook Þ Смерть постороннего ì Andrey Kurkov

Ee his work in print for the first time his pride swiftly turns to terror He and Misha have been drawn into a trap from which there appears to be no escap Another slim book or less a crime novel this is a translation of a Ukrainian book The main character who has adopted a penguin from the local zoo gets a job writing obituaries then learns that he is writing obituaries for people who are about to die Great premise A uick and refreshing read and the penguin is a terrific character I understand there is a seuel too though given the ending of the book I don't know how Kurkov will pull that off The book gave a very depressing glimpse into modern Ukrainian problems I hope things really aren't as bad as portrayed but I have a feeling the author had a lot of real life material to draw from

Смерть постороннегоAries for a newspaper He longs to see his work published yet the subjects of his obituaries continue to cling to life But when he opens the newspaper to s Don't get me wrong I love penguins I think they're awesome and secretly I think I'd like one as a pet one day But when this book was recommended for my book club I was a bit wary really? A story about a guy and his penguin? Sigh I don't read satires very well normally so I expected this to be one of those sorts of situations where I missed all the humor However I do do surrealism pretty well and I also do Eastern European literature exceptionally well Okay so penguins surrealism and Eastern European Take that satireThis is a pretty strange little mystery novel all the while feeling actually sort of normal throughout I don't want to discuss the story itself for fear of spoiling anything this is a book that is best read going into it without knowing much about it I think It's fun that way watching the story unravel and getting to know Viktor and his pet penguin MishaKurkov wrote a seuel to this Penguin Lost which I can see myself going on to readETA After some reflection I've decided that surrealist isn't the appropriate word for this book Absurd would fit the bill nicely The story is absurd in the best possible way
