librarian: please put this book on order.
Describing the plot: 'Jesus’ body may never have been resurrected but is lying in a tomb in a hot dog stand/zoo in rural Washington state' – doesn’t even begin to describe the myriad attractions of this rambunctious, all-stops-let-out psychedelic assemblage of a book! Robbins manages to pack more mixed metaphors, crazy similes & laugh-a-minute hijinks onto nearly every page than many more acclaimed authors get in their whole book [So many sentences by themselves are quote-worthy and immortal!] He obviously had the grandest time writing this first novel while also imparting some quite original & savvy philosophical insights.
Read the book, I think,already. Back
for another try.
Outlandish plot, or not much of a plot.Interesting characters and dialog. Witty and sarcastic. Sometimes long monologues just to deliver the author's opinion. Still worth a read. My first Tom Robbins' book (and his first book too). Will try another one, see if it gets any better.
Read late July
Quirky, outrageous, philosophical as all of Robbins' books - but after reading two or three they do get a bit repetitious...
Probably my least favorite Tom Robbins book... but still a good story.
