I enjoyed reading this book, and the way the we interpret events from Bunny's perspective. At the beginning of the book Bunny is the ladies man, he is smooth and much in demand to spread that special joy with all the ladies of the world. But as Bunny starts to loose belief in his projected self image the truth is revealed. Some of the revelations are laid out to shock the reader; Bunny's realisation in the pizza restaurant that lusting after everyone in hot pants is unacceptable, Bunny's second encounter with the waitress named River. As the truth interupts Bunny's self moulded fantasy, and after a visit to his father, Bunny decided that how his is raising Bunny Junior will not prepare his son for the modern world.
Not a book for the easily offended, and the ending at Bunton's with all the women forgiving Bunny didn't sit well with me. A bit too much of a fantasy for the guilty party to be so easily forgiven. But The Death of Bunny Munro is a book I would like to read again, and so I may well purchase my own copy.
Thanks canongate for starting this ray.
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Posting on to Hexa via Royal Mail (first class).
Tomorrow, I'm going to see Nick Cave live, reading from this, so thanks for the chance to read it before that!
Sending on to mrbaggins1, complete with a tarot card - Ace of Pentacles.
Thank for the Tarot Card - according to Google first hit:
"The Ace of Pentacles indicates great wealth and happiness. The happiness may be the result of the receipt of something long desired. The wealth, however, need not have a monetary value. Some of the greatest gifts of life can not be bought."
It's true, the 'receipt of something long desired' ... is "The Death of Bunny Munro.
I actually found a Tarot Pack in a Charity Shop (Bounty Hunters) a month ago with one card missing and has also fallen into the habit of sticking these into the books I'm releasing. Stole the idea from Hexa
"The Death of Bunny Munro" is a rough-ride-read to be sure and I can highly recommend it. Sending it to LadyIndigo who is on RABCK.com by surface mail.
Thanks to Cannongate for starting the ring. Oh yes, and I'm wondering if the very atmospheric photograph of Mr Cave at the back of the book was shot intentionally in that way....he looks like I'd err picture Bunny (Sorry Nick)
Released by surface mail today to LadyIndigo in Australia. Enjoy. Thanks Cannongate for sharing it as an enjoyable read.
i'll read as soon as i can and send on to the next reader
interestingly the cover of this book is very -very- different to the one australian publishers decided to use, my local bookseller tells me it is being snapped up by young boys - our book cover looks like the audio edition shown here:
