The Rubber Rose Ranch (all-girl), Sissy Hankshaw (small-town girl with big thumbs), The Countess (gay tycoon of feminine hygiene), and a cast of other outrageous characters make this one wacky, wild read!
fantastic! tons of fun, but will make you think, too!
Tom Robbins wrote this book in the early seventies and I see why it's become a classic read. It's hoot. I've read it twice and think it's time to share it.
Way better book than movie!
Still funny after all these years.
A wonderful read that never should have been adapted to the big screen.
Tom Robbins is a great writer - very prolific and one that I enjoy reading everything he puts out. Robbins develops the most outlandish and colorful characters that you can't help yourself but to cheer on.
That being said, I was more entertained by "Jitterbug Perfume" and "Another Roadside Attraction". Don't let this stop you from reading about the only woman in the world born to hitchhike.
I give this book Two Thumbs up!
You gotta like Tom Robbins.
Strange tale with lots of humorous one-liners. Great for fans of Vonnegut.
