Title: The Death of Bunny Munro

Author/Editor: Nick Cave

This book left me with a very complex and conflicted set of reactions. Initially, I didn’t care for it. It seemed aimless, indulgent, and without any real purpose. And, after it seemed not to have any compunction about continuing in this same vein for the remainder of its 212 pages, I was feeling…uninspired to go along as a passenger on this maniacal (though pleasantly-detailed) ride.

However, by the time I reached the final 20% of the book, things were starting to look up for me, even as they looked so very, very bleak for Mr. Munro. These last few sections really saved the book, bringing some small degree of understanding to the character of Bunny, especially through the scenes in which his relationships with his son and his father are given some added dimension.

Final Rating: 5 out of 10
