the Pleasure Island scene in Pinocchio in which the truant little boys turn into donkeys
or

Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow

Stunning
Stunning writing, but flawed plot

I'll have to add it to my reading list. :COP:

1) #699

2) Europe Central

Brilliant
Wonderful, save for the hundreds of pages of Shostakovich fanfic
Fitfully engaging, but rather self-indulgent
Meh
Horrendous
Never read it
