bookshelves: 2008, man
Read in May, 2008

I was somehow sure Eeeee Eee Eeee was a comedy: talking bears and dolphins, killing of famous guests, colour-happy cover and a weird and intriguing title. It actually is a rather depressing book about emptiness, feeling empty and having no purpose in life. Each character - including the beasts - is either depressed or about to die.
As for the form, it is not so much a novel as poetry in a form of a novel, which I always find hard to get into whoever the author is.
If you feel adventurous though, it is a quick enough read. And one which manages to make bears, dolphins and even hamsters exasperating which is a strange and new feeling to me.
