Strange as this book was (and abstract), it was really enjoyable. It is basically alot of allusion to the idea that life is taken for granted and is thought of as “over” long before we are dead in the ground. There is also a strong theme of finding a sort of peace in the twisted idea that old age means it’s over. Also presented is the idea of how easily people become like animals and can be controlled as such once they reach this point of giving up and giving in. I enjoyed this book, but it is not for the easily offended or highly literal reader.
