Dit boek begon erg leuk en ik zat er helemaal in, maar toen werd het volkomen onbegrijpelijk en ingewikkeld.

non ricordo di avere mai avuto un giocattolo preferito, da bambina… un orsacchiotto, o simili, da portarmi sempre in giro o con cui dormire la notte.
non so perché… forse solo perché i miei genitori non mi hanno indotta a farlo… o forse perché sentivo (capivo?) già la necessità di dover bastare affettivamente a me stessa.
comunque trovo che l’immagine di un bambino che stringe a sé il suo orsacchiotto sia di una tenerezza fuori dall’ordinario!
e pensavo… all’amore che un bimbo è capace di provare per il suo pupazzo preferito… chissà cosa deve essere!? …così puro e assoluto.
(certo che anche essere il giocattolo preferito, il prescelto… fra tanti! ..wow!!)
e non ci sarebbe davvero da stupirsi se, mettendo insieme un bel po’ di quel genere di amore lì, quello dei bambini, accadessero delle specie di magie.

Winkie is a teddy bear that finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Taken into police custody when the cabin in the woods where he's living is raided and charged with multiple acts of terrorism. Assigned an incompetent public defender to represent him and with public opinion very much against his continued existence Winkie is left to review the events in his life that have led him to his current predicament.

What I was hoping for from this book was a light, fairly fun satirical look at the justice system when it comes to the war on terror. What I got was actually a quite sad and often absurd tale where all of society’s ills are placed firmly at the feet of someone who happens to be a little different from the norm. I think I would have preferred a little more meat to this story and a bit less padding out especially with the trial scenes. Not a book I have any interest in returning to which is a shame as the potential for this kind of story is huge.… (mais)

A very interesting premise in that a stuffed toy bear comes to life, has three wishes granted (one of which is to "doo-doo"), gives birth to a baby teddy bear after eating too many berries, and is ultimately accused and imprisoned of terrorism.

I was intrigued.

Now I'm just glad it's over and I finshed it. More of my review on my book blog: carmensbookadventure.blogspot.com.
