What the Critics Say

"It's impossible to view the world in quite the same way after reading him.... If Castaneda is correct, there is another world, a sometimes beautiful and sometimes frightening world, right before our eyes at this moment - if only we could see." (Chicago Tribune)

    "Simply Awful!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Crazy people who like hallucinogenic drugs!


    What was most disappointing about Carlos Castaneda’s story?

    I kept waiting for something to happen or to get some kind of understanding from this book, but it just kept going on an on about these hallucinogenic trips. It was actually very dull & pointless. Of all the books that I've ordered, this was the only one that I couldn't bear to finish!

    "Some sections were boring"
    What did you love best about The Teachings of Don Juan?

    The stories were great but at times it felt like a lecture.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Teachings of Don Juan?

    The experiences of the author while hallucinating. I found the section with the lizards very interesting.

    Story
    "interesting, but I was looking for more details"
    Would you try another book from Carlos Castaneda and/or Luis Moreno?

    I might try one more only because of recommendation from a friend


    Would you recommend The Teachings of Don Juan to your friends? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend this book since one cannot replicate any of the experiences.


    What three words best describe Luis Moreno’s voice?

    flat and boring


    Did The Teachings of Don Juan inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    dissappointed
