Way too many words
The idea for this book should have stayed home in the mind of Robbins. Way too many words and very little content. I would only recommend this book to someone who has read all the other books by the author and I love most of those. The ending solves nothing and leaves most all the questions about the character unanswered and I don't even like this character nor do I care what happens to him.
Canuck (01/23/05)

Totally awesome, takes stereotypes flips them upside down and knocks the sense out of them
Biscuit (12/24/04)

Brilliant, witty, sick but yet what everyone thinks (or should)!
Bob (12/05/04)

Tom Robbins has slipped the dream into reality, fiction into history, and Switters into Bangkok. Philisophically brilliant, religiously enticing, and downright histerical, I'll never look at a nun the same way!!!
Brian Hartley (05/05/04)

The best central character i have ever read.
Ruby Lipps (04/29/02)

This is Tom Robbins at his finest...again. His mind's eye allows him to put out incredibly creative narrative descriptions. His command of language is impressive. Some of his “action” might not be for everyone but his writing is so exquisite I would hope even the dull of spirit could enjoy his style. This is a ride worth taking!
