Reading


tractors1.jpgFinished my book,  A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian at last and it was a really good read. 

I said previously that I thought the book was going to take a sinister turn but I was wrong because it pretty much ambled along in the same (darkly) comic vein.  Yes, it did have a black comedy touch about it with its tragic characters, heartless cruelty and often grim political/social undertones, all portrayed using witty humour and farce.  Great writer.  Great novel.  I loved it.
