5.0 out of 5 stars So tradgic that you must laugh, 15 Sept. 2008
I read most of Kurkovs novels, but I like this one best. It trully shows the mental situation in most post-sovjet countries. Also it is very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be mandatory, 15 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Intended for Pleasure (Paperback)
The authors treat this delicate subject with both precision and respect. All marriages should begin with reading this book in order to deebunk most prejudice and get the intimacy right from the beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, 15 Sept. 2008
Kurkov has done it again! The two stories of the book are beautifully combined in the end, but offer the reader some brain-gymnastics in the beginning. A trully exciting and enjoyable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 26 Nov. 2005
The setting of the novel is Kiev anno 1996. The main character gets employed by a newspaper to write obituaries under a pseodonym, and in lack of fame companes to a private customer. This starts a lavine of deaths which are suppost to end with the main character's.
The penguin Misha represents a longing back to some origin and truth of Viktor, represented by Antarktis.
The book is a good exaple of relationships based on need rather than on love in UA, and of the glue which holds the post-sovjet society together.
The novel is quickly read, but it will force you to read it again and again in search for a deeper meaning, which surtainly is to be found!
