Bär - Marian Engel 3.5 Stars

In our little Weird Shit Group we stumbled across this little treasure.

It was released first in the year 1976 and (like you can guess) there isn't a Kindle Edition or ebook of it.
I found a German edition for a low price and thought I'll try it.

At first you might think it's like all the other weird shit we read in the past when you read the blurb...
Then you read that it is or was a bestseller and ask yourself just why...

I have to admit that I'm still searching for words for this review but I doubt that I will find them later easier than now.

It reminded me much of the books I had to read for school. Some parts had this poetry like writing. Other parts I just didn't get!
If you are just looking for some humpy-pumpy between a woman and a bear this book will disappoint! It's more than that! Though there is some sexual content. Let me say this to you as a regular smut reader: THIS IS NOT HOT!

Maybe it's because the story is settled in a time I don't know (I wasn't even born back then!) that I don't get the meaning of this story. But since it is like that I can't give it more than 3.5 stars.

You are easiely offended? Don't touch that spoiler!
