He burped, laughed and defecated in the food tray. He is either mad or profoundly stupid. They are taunting me! View all 6 comments. Jul 10, Navessa rated it it was amazing. Though he was but small of stature, he was mighty of spirit.
Edward was a thinker, a philosopher, a poet. He was an artist. He delighted in the possibility of intellectual debate and was a man…er…rodent that held firm to his convictions. Many a nights we sat up until the wee hour A Eulogy for Edward Juralul beloved, We are gathered here today to mourn the loss of Edward.
Many a nights we sat up until the wee hours contemplating the meaning of life. We discussed the monotony that seemed hamstrr plague him, the freedom that seemed forever out of his reach. You see, Edward was caged. Both physically and mentally. His mind became his jailor, the wheel his tormentor. His human captors mistreated him, the cat misunderstood him, and Wolf, his cagemate, lacked the intellectual fortitude to challenge him.
After Wolf passed I began to worry for my friend. He seemed to be waning. He no longer got on his wheel, his writing became erratic and his body slow and lethargic.
But this is not a story of loss, my friends, this is a story of love. She was a dreamer, a fellow artist, and theirs was a love found once in a lifetime. She tragically passed just days before Edward and I truly believe that it was his uniu that led him to do what he did. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten.

Ujui was weeping because I was laughing so hard. A small teaser – ” Thursday, May 8th – The vet came today. Apparently, I’m a woman.
Tu m’en donneras des nouvelles. Dec 08, Dov Zeller rated it really liked it Shelves: This one is fun. Edward’s a bit of a one-trick-hamster, but this jkrnalul for sure the closest literature has come to producing a love child of the icecapades and Camus, so I’ll take it.
I think my favorite part of the book might have been “Translated from the original hamster by Miriam Elia and Ezra Elia. There is their podcast, a series of psychotic episodes though I think they’re finished with that and focusing on books. Below is the This one is fun. Below is the first one, which has some Edward Hamster in there, which is fun to hear in narration.
Also Miriam Elia has recently encountered the wrath of Penguin who, interestingly, published Edwardbecause she took popular British old-school kids books Ladybird books with Peter and Jane and spoofed them.
But it looks like she’ll be okay in the end. I appreciate the sensibility of the Elias siblings. It’s not the kind of art that feeds my soul, but it’s enjoyable and hopefully they will continue to grow and explore new paths as artists.
Edward is not my usual cup of tea, just something my mother sent me across 3, kilometers about 2, miles with a short note: So I “read” this tiny booklet in between a sandwich and opening another book and, what do you know? Should I mention this is not my usual cup of tea? Because I would have never guessed myself. OK, so now about the book. There isn’t much to say and there isn’t much of a b Edward is not my usual cup of tea, just something my mother sent me across 3, kilometers about 2, miles with a short note: There isn’t much to say and there isn’t much of a book, but it’s a roller-coaster and I alternated laughing with feeling really touched.
So how did the authors do it? The jurnalkl is terse and the graphics eedward simple, so this edwxrd count. It’s perhaps that the hamstre is cute and tender, and Edward is grumpy and moody and fighting for his freedom.
And he gets it totally wrong every time, but his thoughts are so naively enthusiastic or touchy-feely that you get sucked in and root for Edward. Did I mention Edward is a hamster?
Overall, just read this, it’s pulp emotion. Apr 26, Karla rated it really liked it Shelves: Holy shit, that was dark. Not that I’d ever have a edwarx again, but after reading this, I’m definitely never getting another jurna,ul.

Anyone who reads this might think about what life is like hqmster your caged pet’s perspective after this – or you should. Or am I being too sensitive? Jan 11, Alex Sarll added it. Bleak yet somehow inspirational; a classic of prison literature. A quick short read, written by a philosophical, bitter hamster.
For some reason, I read this in a French accent. Oct 14, L. Hey, this is the cutest book I read this year. It is about a hamster It is an essentialized account of the human condition.

Sep 21, Suzi rated it it was amazing. Never knew how much I would relate to a hamster. His reflections are wrought with hamsteer, despair and existential angst. He searches for meaning within his cage.
There is food, water, juenalul wheel. Filled with wit and wisdom, this graphic novel is a black comic tribute to a beloved hamster—the most existential beast within the animal kingdom. This is a quick and playful read, with clever artwork, and will bring a smile to the philosopher in your life.
Dec 04, David Schaafsma rated it it was amazing Shelves: I thought this was pretty hilarious. The Elias actually had a unuui that they named Edward. They found him to be particularly gloomy. He lived and died in
