Kitten by G. Arthur Brown

Kitten is a fantastically surreal story. It’s like moving through a dream. The writing is smooth and the characters click. The plot moves along at a nice pace and while none of it makes any sense whatsoever, there’s no real need to question it. Take the quirks with a sideways smile. And yeah, it’s weird and nonsensical, but it’s not forced like he’s trying to be too weird or crude or ‘out there’. This is bizarro written with sincerity. It’s funny in a quirky, heartfelt way. It’s complicated. It’s got depth. It’s got a lot of things going on that take the story to unexpected places. It won’t have you jumping up and down screaming “holy shit this is awesome!” It doesn’t work like that. I’d call it slow-burning bizarro. It happens, and then it ends, and it’s just so surreal that it takes a little while to sink in. That’s probably why I didn’t write my review up right away. Kitten is different. Kitten is wild. Kitten is a wonderful book that will make you smile.

5/5
