    Very Good Read

    This wasn't the dark, mysterious novel I thought it might be when I read the title. But, the blurbs clued me in to that before I purchased.

    I found Babayaga to be a light, humorous read about Russian witches who live for a Very Long Time. It is set in Paris in the 50's and the word "expat" is used to describe the two fellows from the American Midwest - one slightly disillusioned and the other goes with the flow with a cocktail in his hand.

    One of the best aspects is the flea's eye view of the narrative... an irrepressibly jovial policeman is turned into a flea and he rides around on animals and people, full of optimism that is mildly threatened with despair over his situation.

    I enjoyed every minute that I was reading this book. I very much recommend it.

    Pure Joy

    One of the best reads that I've had in a long while. Combining intrigue (CIA style) and witchery, the story follows the extraordinary adventures of an ad man, ancient Russian witches and a French detective that ponders the meaning of his existence when he is transformed into a flea. The author does a superb job in bringing Paris of the 50's to life
    Highly recommended.

    Good

    This was a fun read. Some character's story arcs are funner than others, but it kept me entertained.
