Frankly I'm puzzled by some of the reviews before me cause I enjoyed the book. It is indeed candid and I will second what a previous reader said about thinking more of the man prior to reading the book. I think it took some guts to write this book. The research into the book is pretty comprehensive.I wonder who helped him with it because I looked and could find not any credit. All in all I would say read it!

I thought this was a very good book. I had read Rule of the Bone and thought the same of it. Mr Banks isn't going to write a feel good story I'm convinced but his books leave you impressed.

This book I recommend if you were anywhere near the Summer of Love.The story itself was intriguing, and I hate to admit the cover lured me in.It's a real hoot at times but has some heavy undertones as well. All an all a fun ride. If you liked Tom Wolfe's Electric Kool Aid Acid Test you will probably like this.The liner has one review which says it's Jack London meets Ken Kesey!

This book was flat out terrific. For a first book written by a foreigner in English no less.Makes you hope and pray for the Afghanistan people, and thankful for all we have at home here.
