    A picaresue tale in the old style not a novel really as that implies a story with a plot and character development There's no consistency here; for example sometimes our hero has a brother and sometimes not; sometimes he was born in a big city sometimes in a small town It all sounds like it was stitched together from barroom stories told by fifty different people on a hundred occasions Some of the stories taken by themselves are affecting and colorful but I don't advise trying to read it end to end unless you're a hormone addled schoolboy Keep it around to pick up once in a while when you've had a joint got a drink you're playing some Velvet Underground or Shocking Blue and you feel like getting some Swinging Sixties on for a bit

    I thought I was going to really like this book but found myself struggling to even read the last 25 pages or so Traveling Europe and skrewing chicks is a lot better with plot and detail You can tell that in the beginning the author was taking time to build the story and create the character but by the end he was like oh yah and then this happened too Also it may be just me but I don't really need 30 pages of information on why you like to defecate

    The Stichting Overal in Nijmegen cleared out some shelves I received part of the books from hema verf in a book box in Castricum ThanksI'm not sure if I want to read this book For some reason I haven't untill today Saw it on the shelf in the library but have been very good at avoiding Not sure why So it is with a bit of hesitation that this one ends up at the TBR here I'll see what I'll do later

    Ancient history when I read this book around 1967 bawdy uninhibited humor Not for the faint of heart If I were to read it today I might only give it 2 stars When a man is young and full of testosterone he thinks too much with his little head and not enough with his big head
