Have you ever thought to yourself, "You know, the books I'm reading just aren't crazy enough"? If so, THE TEL AVV DOSSIER might be something for you.
This is one of those rare books that defies all explanation. If you try to explain the plot to someone, you end up sounding like a rambling lunatic.
So I will just tell you this: It's crazy.
And really original.
It's the kind of book that makes you think WTF?, but I mean that in a good way. I am seriously in love with this book. It stays with you. It haunts you. I have spent a good deal of time thinking about this book. Dwelling on it. Trying to interpret it. I don't know if I've come up with any solid answers yet, but the journey has been a good time.
But what makes THE TEL AVV DOSSIER so impressive is that its craziness is so well done. Anyone can slap together some weird stuff, but it is t the authors' credit that this comes together so well. JRSavory says he thinks the authors are some angry Jewish men. Personally,
I don't know what's going on with the authors, but it makes me happy that they are somewhere out there writing stuff like this.
This is a true diamond in the rough. This book deserves to be a lot bigger than it is, and if you can't get a copy, you are missing out. I really recommend tracking down a copy of this book if you can find one. As of 12/16/09, copies can still be obtained through Amazon.ca. You might be able to get a copy from the publisher (ChiZine Publications) too. They seem to be a great little press with a lot of interesting dark fiction books of varying degrees of craziness. Check them out. I think they are going to be my new favorite thing. [...]
