Publisher's Summary

The Vegetarian meets Heathers in this darkly funny, seductively strange novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls.  

'We were just these innocent girls in the night trying to make something beautiful. We nearly died. We very nearly did, didn't we?'

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, in the process. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the sinister yet saccharine world of the Bunnies, 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 the author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl.

The bunny’s

Very creative but also extremely confusing book. I just couldn’t follow what the stories was.

Let down by narration

I enjoyed the book but the terrible Scottish accent ruined the audible version. I do not understand how this narration was deemed fit for sale.

Great read, really recommend it if you like spooky pretentious friend groups that do word shit together

I went into this book blind, found it through a mutuals Instagram post where this book was in her bag. It seemed very interesting and intriguing so I decided to give it a listen and I am very impressed. Really good read for the spooky season as it had a creepy element but I would spoil it. Overall I’d say it is a definite have to read. One of the better books I’ve read this year especially after reading a year of rest and relaxation which I was heavily underwhelmed by.

Only powered through this because it was a book club book for the month.

I found it painful to listen too. So much so I sped this reading up to get through it quicker, which I never usually do.
Not my type of book unfortunately. And as mention by someone else…. The Scottish accent was not great. 🫣 Thankfully, that character didn’t have a bigger part!

It was OK.

Nothing incredible. It relies heavily one shock factor. Predictable ending with Ava. Really well written.

What a chore

I had to force myself to finish this. Felt like work every time. Also the bunnies had just the most annoying voices.

Interesting, at least.

I had listened to enough of this to force myself to finish it. The way the story is written is beautiful, wonderful choice of wording and the metaphors are stunning to visualize.
However, the plot is the main issue here. While I enjoyed what I could of it, a lot of this book was... unnecessary? I feel as though several chapters are entirely unneeded. It's a very long read with an unsatisfying end, to put it bluntly. There's not a lot of good plot between the genuinely interesting points, it drags on and on and only truly gets good with 2 hours left in the book.
Right as it's getting good, though? Bam. Book ends. Harsh stop, unsatisfying ending.
If you have spare credits I'd give it a try, but I wouldn't pay full price for this one.

Disappointing Ending

I kept listening because I’d already sunk enough time into it. I kept thinking everything would tie together somehow and make sense, but then you find out the protagonist imagined a whole heap of it?? Really strange tone. I wouldn’t recommend.

Was that Scottish?

Very strange book which isn’t a criticism, it was refreshing in some ways to listen to something so different to my go to genres.
I did find it quite hard to follow, I felt the narrative was quite jumpy and found myself having to re listen to parts over to make sure I wasn’t lost.

One thing I will say is that I thought it was well read, but I could not see past the Scottish accent that was so so poor, like it actually made me laugh. I thought he was German!

What did I just listen to??

I wanted to like this book. But I’m just left confused and annoyed.

I found the plot predictable and yet so confusing. I kept needing to go back to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.

Unsatisfied!
