A very unusual & thought provoking book - thanks Booker people. One of those books which I wasn't convinced about whilst reading - particularly the long (dullish?) middle section. I was also a bit squeamish - not one for vegetarians! But, saying that, well worth reading for Yann's insights on zoo's/animal training, religion, and the thin veneer of human civilisation; deserves to be read for generations as a modern fable. And, last but not least, be prepared for the stunning twist in the tail - well I didn't see it coming?? :O)

Journal Entry 3 by Fofum from Beverley, East Yorkshire United Kingdom on Thursday, August 14, 2003
Thanks Tony, it arrived this morning. Having spent the morning amidst crowds of 19 year-olds collecting their A Level results I am about ready to sit in the garden and start this one (or at least finish the 'Inspector Linley' that is in front of it in the pile - I think I know who's done it!)
Thanks for sending it on. I'll reserve it for TherasaA once I've read it.
PS...actually it was a lovely morning, seeing them all make their way into the world. Doesn't seem two minutes since they started with us as 11 year-olds...One of the best days of the year to be a teacher!
