Bunny: A Novel | Mona Awad
The Vegetarian meets Heathers in this darkly funny, seductively strange novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls who seem to move and speak as one "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, 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).

Mehso-so

I think I'm probably in the minority about this! There were plenty of individual elements that appealed to me, but overall it wasn't a pick.

I was actually quite shocked to find out that Samantha is 25... the dynamics and dialogue felt closer to a high school setting rather than an elite MFA programme.

I definitely enjoyed some of the really skewering passages, but despite all the mayhem, I just didn't feel like the stakes were ever that high?

This book is weird. I loved it. Is it fantasy, magical realism, magic, or just about the power of loneliness and the human mind? I don‘t even like those genres, and this was totally not what I expected.

I stayed up late last night to finish this dark satire of academic writing programs & cult-like cliques. Awad‘s use of language gives me thrills of delight—“Her misty smile makes my skin crawl right out of the room.” Also, her playful commentary on writers being able to create fully-formed characters—can‘t explain that without giving away too much. Also, allusions to fairytales, classics like Alice in Wonderland & pop culture. Funny & smart.

I observe the events of the night before from a great, cloudlike height. I observe too that the bed is neither too hard nor too soft. It‘s a perfect bed. Just right. Goldilocks could set up shop here forever. Masturbate. I picture Goldilocks brazenly masturbating in this bed while the Three Bears watch. She is daring them with slitty eyes to tell her to stop. The Bears are too polite to say anything.

I love this book so much! Take every 90‘s movie with teen female protagonists, set it in grad school and watch the horror unfold. The narrator often blurs the line between reality and imagination, so this isn‘t a read for everyone. As a perpetual outsider, I laughed and cringed and didn‘t want this to end. 🐰🐰🐰🐰

Pruzy You had me at Grad school. Plot as you describe it somewhat reminds me of Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott. Have you read it? 2w
Ruthiella I loved this one too. What did you think of the last line and the mud and Jonah? I think she “created “ him too. If Ava is the person she wants to be maybe Jonah is who she fears she really is. 2w

This was very Mean Girls meets The Craft meets maybe a Twilight Zone episode? We meet Samantha who is in a MFA program at posh school in the middle of skid row. She‘s lonely, a fact that isn‘t helped at all by the clique of girls in her program know as the Bunnies. To tell more is kind of hard. It came off as this hilarious fever dream until the end which took me by surprise as it morphed into a heartbreaking love story? I really enjoyed it. Pick!

For the first third of this book, I couldn't decide if I liked it. The characters are ridiculous---everyone is a caricature, but that's clearly by design. Then the weirdness really kicks in 🐇 Let yourself go along for the ride. If a send up of literary MFA programs mashed up with some light horror, magical realism, and Heathers references sounds like something you'd enjoy, give this a go. By the end, I loved it.

I did not like this book. It was too derivative to be as experimental or original as it seemed to want to be, and was unnecessarily murky. Plus, it was over-reliant on soupy imagery of blended sex-and-violence to manipulate the reader more than to convey any real theme or story. But there was a pulling curiosity for me all the same, and as I told my fellow book-clubbers: Ms. Awad has a talent for writing beautiful sentences about ugly things.

I read 138 pages and I am officially done. It started out ok but once Samantha started hanging with the bunnies things just got too crazy. What is going on? Is it magic? A bad drug trip? I just lost all interest. Also the writing style was starting to bother me. It was like she was trying to find the biggest, most obscure words to use when describing things. This novel is not for me.

Hey Bunny, I stole that blurb from Kirkus because it sums up how I feel about this novel Bunny. You see Bunny, just like not everybunny can wear a cupcake print aline dress, or likes mini cupcakes for breakfast, or writes brilliant proems (prose poems, of course Bunny!), this dark story of a woman's experience in an elite MFA program gets a bit macabre Bunny, and really is not for every Bunny. But it is memorable Bunny! Love you Bunny! 🌈🦄🍭😘🐰

merelybookish I enjoyed this on audio. The narrator pulls off a range of of voices (cutesy, angsty, professorial, privileged, etc.) with one notable exception. One minor character is Scottish and her attempt at a Scottish accent is sooooo distractingly awful! 2mo

Ooooh gurl! A contemporary version of Heathers meets Mean Girls snorted with a little Donna Tartt's A Secret History. What happens when a cynical realist meets a group of shallow, vapid writing colleagues (aka the Bunnies) and assimilate into their world at a graduate program. Hilarity, dark humor and a crime ensues! A farce and satire that flips the bird at any MFA college program. Careful Bunnies explode!
