's review

it was ok

I wasn't enjoying this book per se, but it was going along inoffensively enough for me to keep reading when something very strange happened. There was a scene, told from the perspective of rabbits, where an older rabbit just ejaculates everywhere. Literally just jizzes in the middle of the scene. I was pretty much over the book at that point. It was off-putting to say the very least.

As for the rest of the book (which bills itself as a novel, but is written in the now inescapable style of interwoven short stories), it was mostly unremarkable. The first two stories were the best written, but the rest range from boring to "why??".

Carrie Wallace THANK YOU! I liked the book until that chapter. It was so strange, disgusting, and irrelevant. She wasted a whole chapter on the rabbits, and left so many plot lines unresolved. Very strange that nobody else commented on this chapter.
