Another quirky gem from Andrew Kaufman,
This review is from: The Waterproof Bible (Paperback)
This book revolves around three characters; Rebecca, who keeps her feelings stored in boxes to prevent her from transmitting them to those around her, Lewis, her brother in law, who escapes to the other side of the country instead of attending his late wife's funeral and Aby (which is short for Aberystwyth), who his actually a green aquatic creature uncomfortable when out of water. I'm sure that many people would read that synopsis and think that this book wasn't for them. Whilst I agree that in some cases they could be right because this is undeniably a very quirky book, but many others could be making a big mistake because they would be missing out on a sweet, good natured book which is a totally captivating read from first page to last.
If Kaufman's previous book `All my Friends are Superheroes' has become a cult classic this book should become one too, because not only is it a more substantial book it is also a superior, more rounded book.
