I translated this book so you might suspect I'm not being objective but nothing could be further from the truth From all the novels I read I thought this was the one that deserved to reach a wider audience in English and that I would have fun reading time and time again In other words I don't love the book because I translated it I translated it because I love itThe dark dark humour might not be to everyone's liking but I still found myself chuckling away on the ninth and tenth reread despite some of the novel's heavy themes murder abuse unemployment teen pregnancy The humour flirts with the outrageous and as things take a turn for the worse ultimately the reader is left shaken and uncomfortable Which isn't a bad state to be left in by any novel is itA great read for anybody who loves or hates Canada's national game
