5.0 out of 5 stars Scatological Heartbreaker, 29 April 2010
This review is from: Cows: A Novel (Paperback)
Alienation, lack of purpose ,Fascism and Cows.It starts of with a Oedipal warped out of all sanity Mother and Son scat fest and quickly develops into a neo-Fascist "will to power"(with cows)surreal black comedy with some heartbreaking and gut-wrencing scenes, especially involving his selffish loveless relationship with his equally dysfunctional neighbour, this is were most of the power lies in the novel with one character searching for happiness in TV dreams and the other searching for there unhappiness in a physical form. This all makes for hard but rewarding reading and then there's "The Guernsey". Transgressive Literature up there with the best,i don't no why the author Matthew Stokoe is not more well known like the likes of Palahniuk but such is life. As for the "Hagbeast" she is one of the most terrifying characters i have come across for some time, I highly recommend this book too anyone how likes smart modern literature and has a strong stomach there's a lot going on in this novel for a short book but it works perfectly.

Do you know if the new edition is the same as the old edition?
It seems to have less pages... has there been some cuts to the book?

Cheers
