    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityAs seen on The ReadventurerJust when I think there is no urban fantasy in existence which breaks away from the formulaic and same old same old I come across this gem thanks to Guardian book podcast Hurray As with most of inventive and unorthodox genre deviations describing Zoo City is a pain I'm tempted to just call it a Paolo BacigalupiThe

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityI hate it when I read a book that's beautifully written but has a clumsy plot I was seduced by the writing while I was reading it and it wasn't until after I finished that I started realizing how many problems I had with it In this alternate historySF world people's guilt over their mistakes or crimes manifests as animals that are emotionally or psychically attached to them sort of like having an albatross hung around your neck except living and not so corpsey This was interesting to me since becoming a Zoo is all about feeling guilt and not about whether you're really culpable of whatever you feel guilty about

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityOne of the things I loved the most about Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series was his rather brilliant twist on the concept of a witch's familiar that in that world each person's soul manifests as a companion animal that is their other half It's not only because it's a cool idea; it also is an interesting reflection of our ongoing weird relationship with nature the connection we feel to the creatures of the earth though most of us live far removed from it in cities and suburbs And you know the idea of a little talking cat following me around is just fun Provided of course you get a good animal like a cat since you can't pick According to the online daemon matcher they had on the Golden Compass movie website before it came out and failed I would get a

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityThis is a particularly smooth genre meshing urban fantasy noir SF horror and if you don't like my description then go read it and figure out your best fit If you do however find that perfect descriptor be sure to add all the little animas the familiars that bad people get after murdering someone and if you let your anima die you get dragged to hell Or is the novel firmly set in modern day Johannesburg filled with scams missing persons and mystery Oh wait how about all the mutilations and the sense of upwelling horror No Then why the hell do I get this sense that things have just gone

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityWowZoo City is one of the original complicated fantasy books that I’ve read this year I’m not even sure how to tag it that’s how many elements come into play Urban fantasy Johannesburg is a major city after all and the animal angle is clearly unreal Dystopia Almost but not uite; despite the animals this is a current version of Johannesburg and African politics Mystery noir After all there’s a missing person and an investigator of uestionable character Horror A little witchcraft a little mutilation but mostly it’s only horror in that way that shows us our own hearts evil enough to cut out Literary fiction It thoughtfully explores the human condition guilt and identity Mostly it’s just interesting creative and just a bit uncomfortable Unfortunately since Goodreads can't decide if the 2010 Terms of Service are the current ones or the ones that Kara references in theI

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityLauren Beukes’ The Shining Girls fascinated me with her style and imagination I thought it was a flawed gem but it put me on board for Beukeses The next logical book for me from the Beukes bibliography is 2011 Arthur C Clarke Award winner Zoo CitySet in an alternate reality where some people are suddenly paired with an animal as a conseuence of something heinous they have done or perhaps think they have done Basically if you are bearing some major guilt chances are an animal will suddenly show up next to you and you won’t be able to stray far from it If this brings to mind “familiars” concept from Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass His Dark Materials trilogy the author is well aware of it and even mentions the classic YA book in one of the chapters The concept works very differently in the world of Zoo City however the people are not born with animals not everybody have them and the “animaled” people are

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityBefore I read this I would have said there was nothing new you could do with the magical companion animals trope I would have been wrongI enjoyed this for the concept for the characters for the setting I was all set to give it four stars And then the ending happenedview spoilerAnd it's not that it's a tragedy that bothers me I actually appreciate the author's chutzpah in having the twins die in having the bad guys escape I less appre

    Free read Zoo City ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Zoo CityLots of innovation in this melding of noir detective cyberpunk and urban fantasy genres She doesn’t go overboard with any one of this triad It was a fun ride mixed with a lot of disturbing elements Having a likeable female hero helped me accommodate the widespread despair in the contemporary Johannesburg setting But I am led to render a 35 star rating because of personal displeasure with the shocking and implausible dénouement to the tale But then maybe horror is the 4th genre in the blend which is not such a draw for meThe story is set in South Africa in the approximate present with technology and the local and global social structures recognizably current What is different is the emergence of a class of people who are “Aposymbiont” with an animal “zoo” people in slang Somewhat similar to the people in Pullman’s series that began with “The Golden Com
