    "I'm not sure about the LSD theme in the book unless I missed it somewhere, but at first it is hard to follow since there is a lot of slang, but after a while you kind of figure out what it means. There is a deeper meaning to the book and it is up to the reader to figure out what that is. I like that the author doesn't come out and tell you what your looking at, you have to feel it and see it for yourself."

    "This book doesn't exactly have an LSD theme but it is definitely very drug-related.  it's a very sobering story about the dangers of harder drugs and the things people do to get more of them.  it is definitely an adult themed book one that is not made for children.  I have read it though and it is very good."

    "Does travelling through hell on LSD sound like an interesting experience to you? If so, this is an incredible book that details one man's search for God through the use of psychedelics. Bear in mind, though, that some people might find this a bit incoherent or be unable to follow it. If the premise is interesting, and you are able to open your mind, you will be so engaged with this book."

    "I like that this takes a perspective of a woman during the 60's and a time where women were pushing through for their rights while walking along the edges of events that may have stopped them. I also did not know back then that LSD was legal so I am very intrigued "

    "This is a bizarre ride from start to finish. I couldn't put it down, not necessarily because I was intrigued, but because I was so confused—I won't really recommend it unless you are also on LSD."
