It's odd, intriguing, comic, & twisted. It's 5th Buisness!,

This review is from: Fifth Business (Paperback)
"Fifth Business" is a distinctly Canadian book that tells the intriguing tale of Dunstan Ramsay, an eccentric intellectual who shoves aside social normalacy to pursue his own interests. Teens will enjoy it for its bizarre, black scenes (e.g. when Ramsay fights off an ape-like woman with his peg leg), and absolutely fascinating characters. Due to my ignorance of religion, I found the seemingly endless speeches about saints rather draining. Aside from that, this is an utterly unique and entertaining novel.
