Maybe I've been spoiled by Robbins' earlier works. It took a long while for me to get into this one. I had to come back to it several times. But Robbins is a master story weaver and by the end I loved it, like all the others.

Not one of my favorite Robbins' books, but still full of his trademark imagery. Just be forewarned that the narrator has an obsession with his adolescent step-sister -- I had a little trouble with that myself.

Robbins is the finest stylist working today, as this madcap tale aptly demonstrates.

I didn't enjoy this as much as earlier Robbins, but if you like his wild and wacky yarns, you'll enjoy it.

I loved this book. It was completely outside of my normal reading choice, but I liked it so much that I requested a couple of his other books.

This is not something to be read over a weekend. Take some time to read it and digest it and enjoy the crazy humor that Robbins interjects.

I liked this book immensely. It is a little different than most of the other Tom Robbins' books I have read, whose formats all seem to follow a similar guideline. There is even a character in this book that is seen again in Villa Incognito!

Overall, I really loved this book. It wasn't as "easy" to blow through as his others, even though I would read it every night for hours.
