If you're not familiar with Tom Robbins' work, this is an excellent jumping on point. It's all about passion, the nature of art, what's really contained in the Vatican vaults, and life on the back of a pack of Camel Cigarettes. You'll be hooked after the first 50 pages or you'll run away screaming. Either way you will definitely be entertained.
Probably one of the greatest books I have ever read. There are not many books that I can stomach reading twice, but I have read this book numerous times and I get something new out of it each time. If you are looking for a new view point on life, read this.
Tom Robbins has about the most unique take on life I have ever encountered. As with all his stories this book is highly immaginative!
I first read this book when I was 15, and loved it immediately. I now read it again about every other year, and I discover something else to love about it every time. It's definitely my favorite book. It is simply a fantastic love story, if also a little quirky. But aren't the best love stories full of humor, too? The list in the book of "how to make love stay" is one of my favorite things ever. This is definitely not a typical love story, but if you are a romantic and like things a little left of center, definitely check it out.
Robbins, a local native, is at his best here. I am shocked their is no cover available. This is one of my favorite love stories, twisted and bizarre. Read if you are into pyramids, camel cigarettes, and natural contraceptives
