I'm currently reading this, and it's somewhat out there. so far, the blurb on the back is more intersting than the book, which I picked up because of said blurb and the McKenna Style cover art. I was looking for an image like that, and then I found this book - of couse I had to buy it :) Sad, aren't I?

I've finished this, and, while quite interesting, it didn't really grip me. I couldn't get engaged with the characters, which stopped me getting involved with the anrrative. Still, it's an unusual, zany novel not readily fitting into any of the traditional fiction categories. I hope somebody else enjoyes it.
I will post it to an old friend in Edinburgh today, because the cover-art is something I really like the look off and I'm hoping it might give him ideas for a webpage we're talking over between us.
HeavyP - don't feel you have to read this - just leave it in the Official bookcrossing zone in your local when you're finished with it one way or the other. Cheers!

Journal Entry 2 by Heavy-P from Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Monday, October 6, 2003
This book was mailed to me by a friend.
Normally I love surreal literature, but for some reason this left me a little flat. I'm still having trouble working out why this didn't attract me more. Possibly the characters were a bit too similar to each other, so that even near the end of the book I was still flipping back to remind myself who each one was. Possibly things were just mixed together too fast, with another surreal moment or mutating character thrown in when things got too quiet so that it seemed to have no story, just a collection of strangenesses. One niggle that always annoys me is the print quality. Wide margins and large text means it seems like a 360-page newspaper column, and that always stops me from losing myself in a book. So, not a bad book really, just not a good one either.
