's review

it was amazing
Recommended to Steve by: Legba
Recommended for: Black Muslims, Moors, Root Doctors, Obeah Men

Here is the template for Conspiracy Operas like Illuminatus! and Foucault's Pendulum. A fast, funny, poetic read that offers yet another parable for the Way Things Work Behind the Scene. This is the novel that set the pace. The idea of Jes Grew is so convincing that I think I may have been stricken with it. That's all- gone muggin'.
