Bizarre, Funny, Short
on 27 August 2003
This really is a fun read. Boffa tells the story of Viskovitz through this book, except it's not just one story, but a collection of tales about Viskovitz's different animal forms. Some of the stories are very short, 2 pages, others go into more depth (the wolf for example). The same character names are used in each story for V's friends and so on, but each story seems to have its own writing style. Some are straight stories, others, such as the scorpion, follow a specific genre (in this case a western with the scorpion being a gunslinger character).
It's all a very easy read, and, at only some 140 odd pages, a very quick read, but that really doesn't detract from what is a very enjoyable book.
Oh, and it does seem a bit obsessed with sex.
