Review: Going Bovine

Going Bovine
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have always enjoyed Libba Bray’s other work but this was definitely out of the ordinary. Following the main character as he contracts a version of mad cow disease and goes on a Quixotic quest to find a cure was wonderful. The characters were all engaging and never quite went where I expected. Dulcie was an awesome angel and while the main man was an idiot and really annoying for a long time, I still enjoyed his journey and how the book proceeded and ended. It was all very bittersweet as his disease is a death sentence but he still manages to live rather than just exist. This has made me want to revist her earlier work and see what else has come out since.
