I was torn on this one, because I chortled reading it A LOT, and there were some fun facts about animalz that i couldn't have picked up otherwise without going to Wikipedia. But this is REALLY stupid. When you read the back, get to the part about "the whales want them. OR ELSE", of course you assume it's a joke, and then it takes a while before you realize it (yikes!) is not, and then you look at the blurb and it's "AD Harvey is known to readers of American, British, French, Dutch, Swiss, and South African scholarly quarterlies", so you assume he's a scholar with a pet project who just can't write, or a performance artists taking the piss, and neither of those assumptions pan out but you're still positively disposed toward him because he makes you chortle, but then there's just all this creepy sort of . . . . feces standing in for intimacy (read it and see, or don't), and empty-headed females needing male protection, and nothing about it makes any sense but you're giving him sufferance for the first half so you don't realize it until they get to the Island at the end and it turns into an episode of Lost . . . . and the resolution is pure garbage dressed up as profundity. Let the whales and ants extirpate humanity and fight it out for all the marbles, I say, if it means we don't have to read any more assmongering like this. Also, the "Cadillac of vanity publishers" really isn't much of a recommendation, is it? ( )
