liked it

The edition I read had a different cover, it had a frog on the front and was published by Telegraph books. Loved the cover but shame on the publisher/editor for the spelling mistakes, you did not do the author justice by allowing such proofreading sloppiness.

Never mind, I did enjoy this beautiful and unusual book. I think it could have gone a little deeper with the characters and been expanded in many ways. Towards the end it did feel rushed as the chapters became very short. Well done Andrew Kaufman for such originality and making the extraordinary believable. I half expect to see green people with gills lolloping about on sticks now!

If you like Kaufman, check out Murakami, you are sure to love his work as it touches on similar themes.
