really liked it

In the book trailer Libba Bray wanders around in a cow costume being randomly witty, and after several minutes two things occurred to me: 1) this woman is hilarious and 2) this is the longest book trailer I've ever seen. The experience of reading "Going Bovine" is like that--Bray's tale of a dying teen on an imaginary quest is unfailingly witty, insightful and poignant...and really LONG. I dearly wish that this long strange trip were 150 pages shorter. I think if Bray hadn't rambled quite so much the points she makes would stand out more clearly, and, most importantly, this book would attract the number of readers it deserves.
