really liked it

The prose a tad slow, the descriptions too long, the didactic speeches and treatises occasionally tiresome, the prologue worthless, the first 89 pages probably skipworthy. Nonetheless, this is the book of a wise author (he seems to uncannily predict World War II) battling his own suicidal depression and therefore useful for us lost wanderers. Like the Steppenwolf, you will wish The Magic Theater exists. Even if you hate dancing, the party is worth attending.
