This is an interesting little introduction. It's just a shame that she never got around to actually writing the book. As it is, this is deeply unsatisfying - just a snippet.
The first part of this book is great. But about the time that the orgies start, it gets preachy and repetitive and annoying. The sex isn’t described in detail – the actual details are mostly about someone’s clothes instantly vanishing (many, many, many, many times, long after this trick gets old), and about how it’s a bringing closer to share yourself with your water brothers – but the book really goes downhill once Mike is initiated and takes off with Jill. There was a plot before then, a good one, but the rest of the book is slogans. Waiting is. It’s a goodness. Do you grok? Thou art God. You grok, Jubal, you always have. Waiting is. I grok, but not in fullness. Thou art God. Jill is God. I am God. Sex is a goodness. It’s a closeness. Thou art God. Do you grok? I grok. Share water, brother.
The best character was Jubal, but even his narrow-minded preaching got old and tedious. It was not a goodness, do you grok? But then, waiting is.
How could this book full of cheap gimmicks have become a classic? I suppose because it’s all very 1960s, obsessed with group sex/free love/orgies as the one great goodness in the world, do you grok? But of course you could never enjoy group sex with someone unless you first shared water. It’s a goodness. Thou art God. Waiting is.
