it was ok
Read from October 22 to 23, 2010

I had such high hopes for this one. A modern, Russian, post-apocalyptic comedy featuring the horrible slynx that lives in the forest, poisonous flying rabbits, and plenty of absurd mutations. But there's no story. Only description. It gets boring fast. Tries to draw on all of those wacky Russian types of characters and situations and attitudes, but doesn't have much of interest to say about them. The post-apocalyptic angle is hardly used at all, except to have the characters figure things out (touching books won't actually curse you!) that are obvious to the reader. Yawn.
