It has been two days since I finished this book and I am still unable to describe it. Part Japanese folktale, part Zen philosophy, and part political, social, and religious satire. this book is just staying with me. Perhaps, I, too, am incognito.

It is both humorous and serious. Robbins uses masterful metaphors and verbous statements that have left me thinking. I would like to hear from anyone who has read this book, to talk about some of the many quotes I have put into my Reading Journal.

I leave you with the words of a Zen Buddist abbot. Words that ultimately shape the lives of the characters and left me wondering, "It is what it is, you are what you it, and there are no mistakes."

People who have studied philisophy more than I would probably 'get' the deeper messages of this this more than I did. Plot alone was enough to keep me interested though. Imagine a much cheerier Heart of Darkness.

I have never read a book like this one. It is interesting and bizarre, but a fun story overall. It kept me reading the whole book in just a few days. By far my favorite book by Tom Robbins.

Tom Robbins cannot write a bad book. While this is not my favorite by him, it is still typically brilliant.
