This is a brilliantly surreal novel, a perfect example of how Russian authors like Pelevin have a tendency towards fantasy and the absurd - a characteristic inherited from writers who came before them (Bulgakov for example) and who tried to dodge the censors. In a faded Black Sea resort, a group of people living on the edge of society also seem to exist as insects, and their existence is just as precarious. Darkly funny, satirical and intelligent.

I had to read this as part of a book club, but found it boring and tedious. I enjoy sci-fi/fantasy, but found this to be disppointing and a waste of the paper it was printed on
