Reviewer Rating:


Zoo Time is a scathingly hysterical account of the current state of the publishing industry. This book is worth reading for any self proclaimed literati or bookworm merely for the dry criticism of "Oxfam, Amazon, eBooks, iPads, Oprah, apps, Richard and Judy, Facebook … the graphic novel, Kindle, vampirism." Other than that, the story is the painful decline of an unlikable narrator set on creating his own miseries and experiencing a demeaning transformation after much existential angst. For instance, taboos breached include sleeping with one's mother in law.
