Where to start. My sister gave me this book and I read it despite the fact that nothing about it appealed to me...except for the fact that some well known and talented authors raved about it.
So I read it and from the first page I couldn't put it down. I was hooked on the craziness, the vivid descriptions, and the beautiful and surprising philosophical paragraphs that would just come out of the blue. This book was unique and lovely in its own way, but at times it went too far and it just started to sound a little over the top, even for a complete fantasy. The lessons on life, love and identity get lost in the confusion. The ending was so mediocre that the book received a two for me - as far as I am concerned, i the ending is a disappointment the book is as well. I've never taken acid, but if I could imagine what it would be like, this book would be it.
