The Deckled Edge

I was put on this earth to read a certain number of books. I am now so far behind I will never die.

Babayaga - Toby Barlow Babayaga, by the author of [b:Sharp Teeth|1724365|Sharp Teeth|Toby Barlow|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1347278888s/1724365.jpg|1721769], is about witches, spies, cops, and one very hapless, clueless analyst in 1959 Paris. One of the strengths of Sharp Teeth was the free verse that made for a very unique, interesting read. Babayaga is more straightforward, but much more wacky with oddball characters popping up all over in this madcap literary adventure. It's eminently readable, but for some reason it failed to completely grab me. I have to give it a lot of props for what the author was doing with it though.
