Wow! Ok, I have no idea why I picked this up. It may have been the huge pile of praising reviews and the fact some compared it to the lyrics of Nick Cave or Bob Dylan.

Well, for me it was just disappointing. Needlessly obtuse and difficult with some really pompous references and use of different languages. This must be porn for literature students....or their bane.

In any case...I hated it...It just wasn't for me. And Waste Land was probably the worst of them, nothing in it made any sense..just a shower of words with no thread. Not sure why I persisted with this book to be honest.
