The Fable of Bing are Books I really enjoyed this newest book from Tim Sandlin. It's a bit of a departure for him in some ways, but if you're a fan of Tim Sandlin's, you'll definitely enjoy this book.As a baby, Bing accidently gets shipped to the San Diego Zoo with a crate of Bonobos. Fast forward 20 years and he's living in the zoo being taken care of by Dr. Lori along with his adopted Bonobo family. He's never been outside the zoo, and while he can speak English and is clearly intelligent, he can't read and has lead a very sheltered life.Then he meets Rosemary, a lost young women who is seeking solace in a cult-like religious movement in order to cope with her sister's terminal illness and he decides to hop the fence and explore the big wide world. What results is funny, touching, thoughtful and an interesting look into what our world must look like to complete outsiders.I would also recommend this to fans of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler; this is like the inside-out version of that book in a lot of ways, yet completely unique. Highly recommend..

  2.

  3. Amusing comment on San Diego Culture, but really not Sandlin s best work There are too many loose ends From where DOES Bing get his powers Why would he or anyone like the female protagonist What is wrong with the US Border Patrol.If this is a Second Coming of Christ Parable as the title suggests, it is way too simple and it has been done much better by others Think Heinlein s Stranger in a Strange Land , Lawrence s The Escaped Cock , Doeschaevsky s The Grand Inquisitor , even Steven King s Green [...]


  4. I loved Bing s sweet na vet , and his open and direct way of looking at the world I was very afraid for him at the end, especially if the authored carried through with the messianic theme I didn t like the character of Dr Lori, but she essentially disappeared in the middle of the book, and I realized that the story and I missed her I m glad I read this and am interested in learning about Bonobos.


  5. The premise of this one is preposterous However, that s a great place to start with a hilarious satire about modern society and new age spirituality Like a much funnier and much less racist or misogynistic Stranger in a Strange Land It still contains a touching human story at its heart.
