I absolutely whizzed through this wonderful satire of one man and his penguin. This was a really easy read with some great black humour and enough pace and action to keep you interested.
Viktor is an engaging character and I was hooked straightaway, keen to find out what would happen to him and Misha. Although he doesn’t do much, Misha the Penguin plays a pivotal role in the plot, which had plenty of fun twists and turns along the way.
This is a great piece that will appeal to fans of lighter Russian literary fiction in particular – or to anyone who likes a fun tale, well told.
I am just starting to read the sequel now and will be offering my review of that one soon.
I received this book as a free e-book ARC from NetGalley.
