Journal Entry 1 by MrBinns from Cannock, Staffordshire United Kingdom on Friday, September 30, 2005

3 out of 10

I’ve categorised this book as Literature and Fiction but I’m sure it could have just of easily been pigeon-holed as Religion and Spirituality or more reasonably, Fantasy.

Living your life with no rules apart from making all your decisions by the roll of a dice does sound quite exciting and probably well worthy of a book. For me however, this book starts well but before you even pass the half way mark you do get the feeling the author is stretching the point writing with his ego rather than his soul. The effect of decision making by dice on a person is interesting while they still have a personality, once that’s lost is when this book just becomes a rambling series of events.

I guess this book just wasn’t for me and I’m currently reading a book about Brian Wilson and the making of Pet Sounds to put me back on track.

Hi! I caught this book at Hudsons coffee house, Colmore Row, Birmingham.
I was minding my own business with a pot of Lady Grey tea and some biccies and there it was. Actually, that's rubbish, I knew about the bookcrossing shelf and went looking for something new to read! It certainly sounds different & I'll be making a start on it when I get home tonight.
