48% done with The Master and Margarita

It really is funny how a book where a cat can talk, the devil can appear and do magic tricks to a packed theater, currency can turn into a bee, and a novel won’t burn in the fireplace, contains the even more ‘fantastic’ element of the retelling of the Crucifixion of Jesus as it might have really happened before the story was embellished beyond all recognition and sense. This is the book’s true genius.

I love this!
