What a strange book! Full of homosexual encounters, masturbation and excrement - and that's not the strange part. I didn't find the book overly shocking, but I did find it hard to keep up with what was going on as the druggy storyline rarely makes complete sense. Worth a read if you're open minded, perhaps worth skipping if you're easily offended by sexual literature.
