Metamorphasis for the 21st Century Aug. 18 2013
By Thomas Izaguirre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Just as Franz Kafka's famous tale of an ordinary man turned inexplicably into a giant insect became an icon of modernist angst, this amusing take on the concept spoofs post-Soviet Russia in its shameless decadence. Both stories dealt with the preservation of identity but this one takes a sly and political approach. A secret government organization fighting to preserve the national character hatches a bizarre scheme to entertain the power elite with an end towards weeding out the productive versus the profligate. The entertainment recruits a group of women to serve as living statues capable of moving around in such ways as to satisfy any whim. The means for this involves technology that eventually backfires in a totally unexpected way. A good subway or vacation drive read!
Fun times, old news Jan. 14 2012

Format: Paperback
This is a good bit of fun, but recycles Pelevin's favourite themes from earlier writing in very similar ways with very similar cliches.

Haiku Review July 19 2013
By J. Edgar Mihelic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In a review, the reader tries to create a sense of the book; the task is to boil down the essence of the work and to summarize and give opinion about the quality of the object in a very subjective manner. I am making a project of finding that essence in the most constrained manner possible. Here, I present you with a haiku review. I hope you like the review and take under consideration a purchase of the work.

New Directions should
print more, and send me some.
Living statues, sing!
