This book was awful. Can you give zero stars on here? Because that is what I am trying to do. The narration was slow and boring, the words were awful, I wouldn't recommend this book to even my ex-husband just to make him suffer a bit, that is how bad it is.
this was my second attempt at a Robbin's book under friend's advise to give him another chance... I wont be drinking from this fountain again. I could not get through the first CD, it just seemed like a whole lot of forced pretentiousness and attempted weirdness (i am a huge fan of weird!) It is completely possible that I would of enjoyed it more if I could of forced myself to get past the first few hours of dribble, since it is in fact a bunch of different stories, maybe the ones I started off with were the boring ones and he saved the good bits for the end? After finishing his "frog pajamas", and going to the end waiting for some sort of climax or redemption and not finding it, I just gave up on the "ducks" without investing more than three hours in the venture. I believe that I made a wise mental investment in doing so. Although, I am still looking forward to reading his "skinny legs and all", I have heard many people (2) say it quite weird and entertaining.
Wonderful book, read by the author himself. His reading makes all the difference. I miss him in my car now.
Tom Robbins, maverick author of eight juicy, daring and sagacious novels, is one of those rare writers who approach rock-star status, attracting SRO crowds at his personal appearances in Europe and Australia as well as in the United States. He lives primarily in the Seattle area.
