really liked it
Read from April 14 to 18, 2011

This just arrived. This is not the edition I have. They sent an ancient (first edition) hardback - it's quite beautiful. I can hardly wait to make a start.

This was a very odd story. Absurdist and yet compelling and plausible. A man gets pissed with his girlfriend (I thought unreasonably so) and decides to live in the zoo with the other apes. People come and stare - all the while he ignores them, reading or writing letters. And then....well, read it for yourself.

I love old books, just because they do tend to be beautiful.
