Help! A Bear is Eating Me!
Help! A Bear is Eating Me! by Mykle Hansen
This is a refreshing, interesting, and just really different book than anything I’m betting you’ve read for a long time. What an idea! Write a story about a guy lying trapped underneath his 4WD while a bear gnaws at his exposed legs. Even better idea, make the guy (Marv Pushkin) a total self centred jerk who even though you are just an imaginary person in his mind, still tells you off while narrating his mind diary account of his situation with an adversary he calls Mr Bear. Marv also tells you what led up to him being trapped under a 4WD, “I wasn’t always being eaten by a bear” in Alaska in the first place, as well as his opinions on nature and the natural order of things. As he awaits rescue by his underlings, you won’t like him, but you’ll admit he is very entertaining, knows how to tell a tale, and you won’t be able to put this book down. Underlings which are so going to be fired for not getting there quicker pretty much sums up the type of guy Marv is.
It’s only 129 pages, but Help! A Bear is Eating Me! by Mykle Hansen is a classic and very funny read!
