This is yet another book from the books list which has made me question whether or not the people who write the list actually like people who read books or if they are really secretly intent on torturing us all for their own amusement?
The review will now proceed in the style of Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom Some might say I also have a tendency to bounce from thing to thing without really thinking about it. No twitchy nose or whiskers though. Janice drinks, man oh man she drinks and she can be a misery. So one day I decided that rather than go home to my pregnant wife and two year old kid ,I could pretend that I was still the Rabbit of old, and set out to remove myself a suitable distance from adult responsibility.
Turns out that a suitable distance involves moving about ten blocks away in the same town and setting up home with a retired hooker with chunky ankles, while reacquainting myself with a load of people who thought I was great ten years ago.
When alls said and done its a nice little ego boost! I mean I am pretty sure I do and she lets me talk about myself a whole lot. I have no empathy. I like to please myself. End of. Obviously poor old Janice went and had the baby and man, did it cut me up to think that I might miss out on a whole extra helping of double domesticity so off I went back to Janice without a thought for chunky ankles and my newest domestic set up. After one short night I realised that when the going gets tough then rabbit gets going and promptly bailed again, this time with disastrous consequences.
