"Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort--a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other "Bunny," and are often found entangled in a group hug so tight they become one. But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled "Smut Salon," and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door--ditching her only friend, Ava, a caustic art school dropout, in the process. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the sinister yet saccharine world of the Bunny cult and starts to take part in their ritualistic off-campus "Workshop" where they magically conjure their monstrous creations, the edges of reality begin to blur, and her friendships with Ava and the Bunnies are brought into deadly collision. A spellbinding, down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging, creativity and agency, and friendship and desire, Bunny is the dazzlingly original second book from an author whose work has been described as "honest, searing and necessary" (Elle)" --… (lisätietoja)

I picked up “Bunny,” by Mona Awad after having just finished reading “13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl,” also by Awad, which I LOVED. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about “Bunny.”

I really hate to say this, but “Bunny” was one of the worst books I have ever read. It started off so slow, nothing really happening, and continued slow to the end. I kept reading, thinking it would pick up. It never did. By the time I realized it was not going to get any better, I was about a third of the way through the book, so I continued to the end, having already invested a lot of time in the book. I should have cut my losses and ditched the book. Unfortunately, Awad followed up “13 Ways” with a clunker of a book.

The book is full of rambling sentences and thoughts, and so absurd and much of it made no sense at all. It reads like the author was a 13 year old on drugs or something. At the end, I realized it was total garbage.

None of the characters were likeable, not even Samantha, the protagonist. The Bunnies, were all cardboard characters, with nothing to differentiate one from the other, especially the dialogue. The author’s voice was disjointed and difficult to follow. Even Ava, who should have been a likeable character for loving Samantha, even after Samantha abandoned her, was not someone seen in a favorable light.

Save your time and money. Skip this book! ( )

Woah. This book was not what I expected, actually, there would be nothing I could've thought that the book wouldn't have surpassed. I had mixed feelings when I started the book but I'm very happy I picked it up.

Part 1 of the book had some of the best writing I've ever read. Apart from the storyline and character frame being spectacular, the gothic and dark writing had me swooning. I'll be reading the highlighted bits again and again for a long time. The introduction was really good, it built up a sort of base that later became so much more. The book held the creepiness, not of moving in the dark and hearing swarms of bees but what you would see in other people daily.

Part 2 I'll say started a bit boring but then when you start looking for subtexts and start making predictions of what'll happen next. It picks the pace up next. And soon you realise that this indeed is a horror book. The idea was very creative but actually felt under explored. I felt there were some loose ends that could be tied but I guess it's a book that focuses on what happens next and not on what led them here.

Part 3 was a rollercoaster. I was surprised and I loved it. Again, the central idea felt a bit unexplored but the writing and twists held up pretty good. The ending was pretty good but I suppose it lacked some flair in some parts that I feel went ahead without enough consequences. The ending felt a bit flat for the Bunnies. Though I couldn't put the book down when I started part 3 and had to complete the book even though it was 4 am.

The concept of the book was something different and the writing did fair to it. Maybe tone a bit down the literary references but I suppose tons of pop references have taken over a lot of contemporary books nowadays. It may feel underwhelming at times but it catches up soon. It has its wtf moments and they're executed very well. All I'll say that if you're having doubts if it's worth a read, it definitely is. It hooks you and the writing is too good. Really good. ( )

This is one of the most unusual novels I've ever read, and it knocked me off balance again and again. I almost abandoned it a third of the way through, but I'm glad I hung on and finished it.

I was never sure how reliable the narrator is. I'm not sure a reader should *ever* fully trust a narrator who is a writer, much less a creative writing graduate student.

One of the offical blurbs refers to reading it as a "down-the-rabbit-hole" experience, and the more I think about it, the more apt it seems. It's not just a clever play on the title. The sheer, wild audacity of the plot becomes greater and more intense as it progresses.

Is it "magical realism"? Maybe yes? Maybe there's only a veneer of "realism"?

Read this if you like the fact that cute, fluffy bunnies have very big and scary teeth.

Do you enjoy the type of movie where you’re never quite sure what is real and what is a dream, and the movie just ends, leaving you to then ponder the meaning for yourself? Then this will surely be the book for you. It’s bizarre, surreal, unique, and going by some of the reviews I’ve seen, definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. ⁣
There will be many times in this book that you will shake your head and wonder “did I just read that? WTF is going on?” All of the bizarre happenings in this book took me by surprise at first, but I was so intrigued I couldn’t stop reading. I have read similar books in the past and would give up halfway through because it became too much. I wanted to follow this fever dream to its dizzying end, even though it was difficult sometimes to discern between the real and the make believe. This book is a magic concoction of “The Craft”, “Heathers”, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”, “Donnie Darko” and “Inception”. ( )
