really liked it
bookshelves: 1001

It is a very odd book; often when reading it I would be thinking "What the...?" Throughout I was somewhat puzzled by the world in which they lived, some questions were answered while others were now. Was this a small isolated commune, the way the entire world was, or an example of post apocalyptic survival? I have also wondered if the tigers were tigers as we know them or just another group of people.

This is a book that is thought provoking and leaves you excellent alternative to a formulaic plot line. That said, while the world is a very unusual place there are some issues that are universal/timeless, difficulties in a break up and a woman rejected. I did not think of this as a love story.

I would get very bored living in this world. Maybe that is what happened to iBOIL and his followers.

I had never heard of this bok before pulling it out of the box, thus showing the beauty of the 1001 list, it shows us new and different.
