I read the first 15 pages at least 5 times. I kept going back, thinking I had missed something. About half-way through now.

Where is the plot? What is this about? What the fuck is going on? These are the questions that were running through my mind, so I had to cheat and do a bit of research to see just WHAT this book is about.

So aside from the obvious ramblings of a heroin induced fantasy, does this book HAVE a point? Does it HAVE a plot or story line? Just WHAT makes this apparent nonsense so popular?

Or should I just shut up and read it and get out of it what I get out of it?


Any help is appreciated.
