Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kleinzeit (Paperback)Its a little funny writing a review of a book I first read about 20 years ago.
This was the first Russel Hoban book I had read and started me into his other works - Lion of ..., Riddley Walker, Medusa Frequency, Turtle Diary etc.
What I particularly enjoyed was his ability to combine great story telling with imaginative, language creation. Probably this work does it better and makes it more easily accessible than some of his other works. If like me you tried reading Riddly Walker and found it has almost impossible to understand without reading it loud and listening to your own voice, you'll find this much easier and no less rewarding.
I've recommended this book to dozens of friends and often lent them my copy, only to get some excuse why they were unable to return it. if you like sharing your books, i suggest you buy several copies ... you'll want to reread it and even your best friends are going to want to keep it!
