Read from April 30 to June 23, 2012

Bit of a slog near the end there, but finally came through victorious!

On reflection, it's a product of its time (1968) with frequent reference to free love, smoking joints and hip talk that is a crude re-shaping of typical 60s jive. That being said, the ideas and plot have aged very well.

Generally quickly paced, very fragmented and as such easy to pick up and read in bits.

Did think it suffered from not having any strong female characters in it but overall fun if a bit long...
