Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This story had a great premise and the cast of characters was interesting. Still it lacked something. Just an okay read.

Would you be willing to try another book from Steven Sherrill? Why or why not?

Maybe.

Was The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break: A Novel worth the listening time?

Not really.
