** spoiler alert ** I read this book because I am a fan of Nick Cave. If you are not, I may not recommend to read it. Personally, I was able to enjoy(?) more when I remembered of his music and imagined that he was reading aloud for me. If you can listen its audiobook, it would be much great. Even if you don't, you can listen some chapters of audiobook and video on its website.

You can say the ending was predictable. The first 250 pages or so was written for the ending. Bunny is a disgusting creature, no doubt. If his addiction was other than sex, such as drug, Bunny's character wouldn't be as abominable as it was. It didn't cause any pity or sympathy; it's just simply disgusting. Was it Nick's intention? I don't know. Since this man's addiction was sex (or pxxxy to be specific, Bunny would say), Nick may named this man Bunny. The problem is, though, I cannot stop think of Bunny Munro whenever I see the word "bunny". I went to grocery shopping and picked up a pack of baby carrot. The package had name printed: Bunny-Luv. Then I instantly remembered of Bunny Munro and his ugly addiction. I felt funny and slightly unpleasant at the same time...... I hope this symptom will go away soon...
