Let The Swine Go Forth by Auriel Roe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Now, this is one fun ride down the dark, disturbing forest of the modern educational system, full of the seven deadly sins, gross incompetence, and scarred children.
In other words, it's funny as hell.
Roe took us into a public institution last time. This one is quite a bit more private. Her experience in the system comes out with wildly satirical flair. It's awfully oddball and sharp and full of great moments.
What makes this stand out is the PoV of the headmaster. It feels quite English, quite droll, but also as zany as you might expect. Birds and torture go quite nice with the seven sins pig. Does anyone want to stage a play?
I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who's in the mood for modern mainstream matriculation mania. :)
