Extraordinarily written, in a very unusual, unique format. Loved it~ shocking, sad-funny, and totally lovable.

"Failures and disappointments make time go by so fast that you fail to notice your real life, and the past when I was so free seems to belong to someone else, not myself.” What a very good quotable quote!

This is a great book. I didn't want it to end, but I couldn't stop reading. Francine Prose is a real writer's writer. You can tell she loves words and the structure of sentences, and telling a good story. I won't give anything away, but "Mr. Monkey" is funny in parts, touching in others and thoroughly enjoyable. It's definitely an unusual format and I'm not sure she would have found a publisher with this concept if she hadn't already published a good 20 books. Anyway, I really liked it.
