In style it's close to surrealism. Yan is a cat. He lives on his own in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by grassland. He takes care and, no doubt, great pleasure in doing simple everyday things, like repairing hinges on his door, making tea or mushroom soup. One day he hears a knock on his door. When he reluctantly opens, he sees a pike in front of him. They have a chat and become friends. It's quite mind-blowing as it is, even more so because it seems that Yan is rather fond of the fish soup. ...more

I thought this book was really sweet. It was nice, light, easy reading and I read it to my little sister when I was finished. She really enjoyed it. It struck me somewhat as a parable or a moralistic story where there was a lesson to be learned. Perhaps I read too much into it though. If you want a story about a cat called Yan who lives in a house and has a samovar then this is the book for you.

Short and sweet, a little tale about a cat and a pike living in Russia, and the friendship they develop. Very cute.
