Book Review: The March of the Crabs
The March of the Crabs is a translation of a French graphic novel by Arthur de Pins. And yes, it is a graphic novel about crabs. Specifically, it is a story about a species of crab that has not evolved in millions of years.
Cruelly cursed by nature with the inability to turn themselves, they are doomed to walk a straight line forever.... that is until the day one crab comes up with an ingenious method to change his direction, and his entire outlook on life.
Of course, as you can imagine, this sudden change angers some of the more lunk-headed members of the animal community.
With an amusing side-story about a pair of documentarians trying to make a movie about the crabs. this story is at once light-hearted and deep, silly and profound. Higly recommended!
