One of my least favorite Tom Robbins books, but still a worthwhile read. If you haven't read Robbbins yet, don't let this be your first.
I had thoroughly enjoyed the rest of Tom Robbins' novels over the years, so I was excited to finally be able to read this, his first. Honestly, this book didn't impress me from the get-go, and I was kind of disappointed with it; in my mind it took a while to pick up. But, oh, when it did, it lassoed me in just like all his other books had in the past. So give it a chance!
Robbins style is unique. He's fanciful and very funny but he is also brilliant.
Very Tom Robbins: crazy characters, events, and plot turns.
