This is not my first Tom Robbins book, I listened to Fierce Invalids first. I will grant that there are a few moments where I get a chuckle, but for the most part this book is a train wreck. I'm just over half way through the book and I am still wondering what the heck it is about. There are points where the author rambles on and on incessantly about some of the stupidest stuff I ever heard. If I hear the phrase "Ho Ho, He He, and Ha Ha" one more time, I'll puke. I've listened to some dull books that eventually picked up, but this one has yet to get me the slightest bit interested in any of the characters or plots (if you can call them that). At least in Fierce Invalids you could piece together the disparate parts and figure out a story line. This book is all over the place. I'm sure I will muscle my way through to the end, just to see if there is a point to any of the story lines, but just like a train wreck, it will be more of a morbid fascination to see where it ends than of a true enjoyment of a story well told.
