    When Henry receives a letter from an elderly taxidermist, it poses a puzzle that he cannot resist. As he is pulled further into the world of this strange and calculating man, Henry becomes increasingly involved with the lives of a donkey and a howler monkey named Beatrice and Virgil and the epic journey they undertake together.

    S. Connors says: "Excellent writing and reading, but..."
    "Disappointing plot"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I would not. Ultimately, there are more questions than answers at the end. One never finds out WHY the taxidermist chooses Henry, or why the ending is as it is (not to spoil things). I never heard the name of WHAT city this takes place in (the reader's pronunciations suggest Canada), and for some reason that distracted me. I loved the characters of Beatrice and Virgil (who wouldn't?), ultimately, a very unsatisfying book.
