I think someone said it was the lord of the rings for paranoids. That's more or less accurate.

It's something you have to just read and figure out for yourself. I don't know if you'll like it. It's about drugs and us history and world history,and alternate world histories. JFK, drugs, sex, anarchists, antichrists, and the occult and there are puns. It intentionally confusing and contradictory. They even rip on ayn rand. I could write a similar length novel just describing the characters and their connections. Why a pentagon? Why the bad trip?
It can naturally assumed that both of these authors were on drugs when they wrote it, I'm not saying that as a positive thing, although, it does make it funnier to read.

It's a fiction, in which there are talking dolphins. Which, in the context of the book and based on what douglas adams thinks about dolphins, it may not be so fictional.

(Is the thought of a unicorn a real thought?)

I found this book very helpful. You'll probably find this review was not as helpful. It's a good book, but it's no great expectactions, but then again, I don't even know what it's about.

"Staff Pick" by ,

I had grown bored with reading, until I found this book. Anything and everything can be found here: conspiracies, drugs, sex, talking gorillas, dolphins with scuba gear, a yellow submarine, undead Nazi soldiers, rock 'n' roll, ritual magic, quantum theory, Mafia dons who collect Atlantean art?.Even after finishing it, I continued to carry it around with me for weeks, just opening to a page at random and reading. I then sought out everything I could find by Robert Anton Wilson and the myriad of sources he borrows from, but this is the starting place of my intellectual quest. Maybe it's because I found this book at just the right time in my life, but I cannot recommend it highly enough.

"Review" by , "The biggest sci-fi cult novel to come along since Dune."
"Review" by , "An epic fantasy....A devilishly funny work, loaded with humor, puns, up-level ironies that make you burst out laughing."
"Synopsis" by , Filled with sex and violence--in and out of time and space--the three books of The Illuminatus are only partly works of the imagination. They tackle all the coverups of our time--from who really shot the Kennedys to why there's a pyramid on a one-dollar bill.
