What`s funny about this book is the author clearly states it is grotesque, yet some (most?) readers seem to ignore that. Must be the book tells much more truth than our Leaders, especially the self-appointed Saints, would like. While still alive, the author was sued because of the book. After he died, they tried to sue his children...Matter is, the writer was never afraid to speak his mind. He used to criticize and ridicule bad things happening back in the Soviet times (and him a member of the Party!), when most of his colleagues kept silent. He did not become a lickspittle when things changed. While, to my mind, not everything written by him is either perfect or praiseworthy, I still do respect him. I do deem many of his books, this one included, well worth reading.A quote I like:Pavydas niekada neatostogauja.meaningEnvy is never on vacation.
Iš pradžių įdomu visai pasirodė, o paskui jau išvis kažkokie skiedalai prasidėjo.
