I’ve always loved monsters and weird creatures. (“Monster” was never a pejorative to me.) And this book has creatures aplenty.
The writing is, well, odd. But in a good way. I will contend that it warrants being read in a John-Cleese voice. It’s the kind of writing that…well, I’m at a loss for words to describe it. Except maybe that it’s the kind of writing that needs to be read in a John-Cleese voice.

Well, it stayed weird. But then it started to get pointless.
