Death and the Penguin by Andrey Kurkov

Amusing little book, but I’m not quite sure what to make of it. According to other reviews, it is a very accurate picture of contemporary life in the Ukraine. Interesting. I can’t imagine calling the local PD to come around and care for my pets whenever I am out of town…while there is a spot of mystery, there is not much (satisfactory) resolution. Perhaps the second installment will shed more light…all that said, I still thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely pick up the next in the series at some point.
