"Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort--a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other "Bunny," and are often found entangled in a group hug so tight they become one. But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled "Smut Salon," and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door--ditching her only friend, Ava, a caustic art school dropout, in the process. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the sinister yet saccharine world of the Bunny cult and starts to take part in their ritualistic off-campus "Workshop" where they magically conjure their monstrous creations, the edges of reality begin to blur, and her friendships with Ava and the Bunnies are brought into deadly collision. A spellbinding, down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging, creativity and agency, and friendship and desire, Bunny is the dazzlingly original second book from an author whose work has been described as "honest, searing and necessary" (Elle)" --… (més)

Do you enjoy the type of movie where you’re never quite sure what is real and what is a dream, and the movie just ends, leaving you to then ponder the meaning for yourself? Then this will surely be the book for you. It’s bizarre, surreal, unique, and going by some of the reviews I’ve seen, definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. ⁣
There will be many times in this book that you will shake your head and wonder “did I just read that? WTF is going on?” All of the bizarre happenings in this book took me by surprise at first, but I was so intrigued I couldn’t stop reading. I have read similar books in the past and would give up halfway through because it became too much. I wanted to follow this fever dream to its dizzying end, even though it was difficult sometimes to discern between the real and the make believe. This book is a magic concoction of “The Craft”, “Heathers”, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”, “Donnie Darko” and “Inception”. ( )

So... yeah, no. I still don't know what this book was trying to tell me.

It started super interesting, even hilarious, then disappointed me at every turn and left me with a lot of regrets.

Was it a horror story? A comment on higher education? I have the feeling it was trying to be, but it never made its point. And it was just so in love with itself.

I mean, the prose is really good. Mona Awad can do wonderful things with words. This story was definitely not the best way to show it.

Every character in this book is an asshole. Which would have been totally fine, if
a) I wouldn't have gotten the impression the author wanted me to actually like the main character, and
b) all that assholery would have culminated in some greater point.

The protagonist is sour, hates everyone and is very in love with her own self-pity, because things are never her fault, of course. She whines and lies to basically everybody in her life. And when you look past her inner monologue, she rarely ever actually does something and takes action. Oh, and she also hates women, because she's not like the other girls.

Maybe it was making a point about the characters and how everyone is flawed. But in order to do that, the characters were just too flat, too one-dimensional. Everyone is judgemental, juvenile and the story is women hating on women.

How about the magic? Well, that was a really cool concept, but we nerver learned enough about it for this book to be about that. We never even learned enough about the potential of this magic beyond creating boys. Seriously - those women are aspiring writers studying at an elite school and all they think about in their free time is... men?

Also, the protagonist literally creates a man to do everything for her that she is too passive to do. That is some serious lesson there.

So... in the end, this book left me with a very bad feeling about what the author thinks about herself, her work and other women. ( )

Wanna creep out someone who's read this book? Just send them a text from an unknown number saying, "Hi, bunny! I love you, bunny!" Add a couple of unicorn or troll doll emojis.

Fun book! ( )

This was weird. Definitely not for everyone. The gore and confusion the main character encounters is very visceral and unsettling. ( )

Lovely narrative style, I just didn’t feel very attached to the story or the characters. ( )
