Where to start ! - this book is grotesque, brutal , hideous but utterly compelling - I could not put it down ! A virus wipes out the animal population leading to an industry of cannibalism - and just when you think there is a flicker of goodness emerging ….
It‘s an Argentinian translation - short and very disturbing - not for the faint hearted - I think it will stay with me for a long time .

Cathythoughts Great review. I still remember it and that ending. Great book. As you say , not for the faint hearted 👍🏻❤️ 1mo

Well, the cozy Christmas book wasn't working for me, so I went in a...different direction. It's definitely weird. But at 200 pages, I think I can get through this one and hopefully get my mojo back.

Ruthiella This book is about as far from a cozy Christmas book as you can get! 🤢 1mo

Ficciones | Jorge Luis Borges

This book of short stories is slim - but it took me a month to mentally scale the lofty (but beautiful) prose, dense with philosophy, history and theology. Borges is a master of magical realism (perhaps veering closer to fantasy and esoterica): his stories are riveting imaginings concerning the impermanence of time, the symbolic nature of labyrinths, the ambiguity of authorship, as well as how eternity may manifest on a human scale.

This is my Book Club‘s pick for April! I really like Piñeiro and have been wanting to read this for a while ?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I borrowed this after hearing Dunlop speak on Sounds Like a Cult Podcast. This novel, with a Munchausen by Proxy side story, follows Katie, a former competitive skier, who escapes her tumultuous public life for an interlude in Buenos Aires. She bonds with others also seeking escape. Based on the author‘s sister who committed medical child abuse, and tried to keep the book from publication. A solid read!

Thanks for the tag @dabbe 😀

1. It's not terribly original, but it's hard to beat a dragon. Or maybe a sea serpent - I love to swim, and I could hang out in Lake Champlain with our own resident monster, Champ (though I guess that would make me a lake serpent 🐍 🤔).

2. The tagged book has ALL the creatures! 🐲🐉🧛‍♀️👾👻

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Intense read for an intense boat ride! Creepy dystopian about a world without non-human animals… not a world I‘d like to live in. #cannibalism #dystopia #thoroughlydisturbed

LeahBergen Was it rough sailing? That added to this book = 🤢 3mo
