Read this just after Cat's Cradle--literally right after. I finished CC around 1pm, and Jesus Weed around 11:30pm. Wasn't reading the whole time, don't worry--there's not THAT much going on here.

It's the (true?) story of a dude who chases a high all of his life... and does some "interesting" things along the way. Definitely made an interesting read after CC; both kind of had that whole "everything is interconnected" vibe to them. I liked this more, I think, because it wasn't laboring to make a p

Quick, witty read. A little disjointed (heh) at times, and the narrator has his own unique brand of arrogance, but overall enjoyable ride.

Well - where do I start?! : )

I read this firstly because the author is my mad, crazy, amazing and talented Uncle. To say I learnt a thing or two about my family and life in general would be an understatement!

It took a while to get into the cadence of the writer's sentences. The structure was all over the place at times, but I think this adds to the charm and honesty of the story, and once I got used to this, it was reminiscent of sitting around a camp-fire, being told a really good story.

Like no other book I've ever read. I picked it up at a hostel in krabi, thailand and read it over the course of a day when I was sick. An interesting journey of a young man traveling around the world and the places his weed smoking takes him. ...more

This book is 'high'ly entertaining, sometimes surreal and other times unbelievable but ultimately worth the price of admission. ...more

Interesting, facinating... an easy read with lots of typo's. May cause cravings and the misguided notion that anyone can sit down and write a book ;) ...more

Found this book at beach house rental - take one leave one scenario. Love travel writing and misadventures. This book is ok - its a lean read that has the author meading around the globe like a leaf in a stream. Some chapters seemed a little too long while others were just right. I'd like to believe the author intended some deeper metaphor about enlightenment and the hero's journey but perhaps that's just my overactive mind. It's a good read if you like hearing about strange adventures and weed. ...more

Out-there, man. Still unsure how much is fiction and how much is autobiography.

I found this book fascinating! I thought the story was exciting and you never knew how much was real and how much was in the authors imagination

I think regular marijuana users would love this book: an autobiographical account from a chronic user who gets the chicks, has unbelievable adventures (in the very real sense of the world 'unbelievable') and travels the world smoking the strongest gear imaginable. As a non-user, I was most interested in the contrast between a (sterotypical, I know) lazy dope smoker with the enthusiastic globe-trotting outlined on the fly-leaf.



There isn't really much of a contrast, it transpires. The fly-leaf jou

A shocking and revealing account of a young man's sex life, his narrow escapes and the cruel fate that tripped him up in his journey. Interspersed with excellent humour, its uniquely original prose kept me turning the pages. An eye-opener! ...more

I thought it was pretty clear that he was schizophrenic with all those voices in his head, but others who have read it disagree...what do you think?

Another book you have to read, the sort of travelling I would love to do.
