I have not finished the whole book, so I may change this review later, but so far the beasts, are a bit arch. They are not particularly challenging or imaginative. There's the creature made of ears, which has an ambiguous relationship with humans. The tortoise which is a chameleon (making its body look like rocks or even typewriters). The rooks which control people to make carnage for their feasts. There are obviously fake quotes from fake books and documents etc. If some of this documentation was true then the existence of the creatures would not be dubious....
I have not previously heard of most of the authors, and it seems unlikely I will encounter many of them again,
I'd suggest purchasing borges book of imaginary beings first, or even a 'monster manual' for imagination, but the book is lovely to look at and hold.
