Follow Sissy's amazing odyssey from Virginia to chic Manhattan to the Dakota Badlands, where FBI agents, cowgirls, and ecstatic whooping cranes explode in a deliciously drawn-out climax. Along the way, you'll meet such unforgettable characters as Bonanza Jellybean and the smooth-riding cowgirls of Rubber Rose Ranch; Chink, the lascivious guru of yams and yang; Julian, an asthmatic Mohawk; and Dr. Robbins, the preventive psychiatrist and reality instructor.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodie | 2/19/2014

    " Content is not G rated but the book is an interesting story. I like the fierce brand of humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Todd | 2/16/2014

    " This and To Kill a Mockingbird are my two favorite books. Not sure what that says about me, but I'm sure it says SOMETHING. Great and wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 2/14/2014

    " Years ago I was in my male-sensitive pro-feminist mode ... I was impressed by this book. (and will never forget what thumbing a ride could mean). Nothing heavy, but a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sabrina | 2/14/2014

    " Again, not one of my favorites. I was disappointed that Uma Thurman was chosen for the lead because I remember the MC as much more freakish than Uma. Still, contains that signature Robbins wit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylar | 2/13/2014

    " This is quite possibly my favorite book! I love it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie Pavlos | 1/26/2014

    " I don't even remember what I hated about this book. Just that I did. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tamera | 1/20/2014

    " second time around reading this book (last time when I was in my 20s). . .wasn't as fun an experience as last time . . .too disjointed although I still liked the characters. . .think tom was doing too many drugs when he was writing this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill Barlow | 1/18/2014

    " This is no the first Tom Robbins book I've read, and they start to seem the same after a while. His weird beliefs about sex, some fairly clever ideas, and a lot of funny word play. It was enjoyable, as usual "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 1/17/2014

    " Funny, whacky and never predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Asha | 1/14/2014

    " They book is good, the movie put me to sleep. ;~) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 vanessa | 1/8/2014

    " Hilarious! One of my ultimate favorites "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Stanley | 1/1/2014

    " OK. So, if you've read Tom Robbins before, then you will understand what I am saying here. This book is not quite as out there as some of his other books, but you still have to be willing to accept seeing the world through a different lens for it's duration. Expect an outrageous read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 12/28/2013

    " I saw the cranes at el bosque del apache. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 12/19/2013

    " Typical Tom Robbins. Not my favorite (that was Another Roadside Attraction. LOVE that book). The overdone wackiness just doesn't work for me here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valissa | 12/11/2013

    " "Perhaps sound carries farther across time than across space." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 10/2/2013

    " I recently re-read this for the first time since high school. It was interesting to see how I liked it the second time around. I liked it only slightly less and I am still impressed with the strange and exciting way Tom Robbins writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devorah Freudiger | 4/27/2013

    " Few books make me laugh out loud-this one did. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beverlee | 4/16/2013

    " Couldn't finish it - just too strange for me. About the time I would think I was enjoying - would be 20 pages of non related side bar "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaclyn | 12/4/2012

    " Only my second Tom Robbins, but I'm beginning to get more of a feel for what to expect. I thoroughly enjoyed his discourse on Time and the way we engage it. I have also fallen in love with his narrative style. Looking forward to my next Robbins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 6/24/2012

    " ha ha ho ho hee hee "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Miller | 5/31/2012

    " Ha ha, ho ho, hee hee. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janine | 2/5/2012

    " Tom Robbins is pretty neat. I like his figurative language, because it isn't obvious or expected at all - and nothing gets my goat like transparent metaphors and similes. I liked when he said that The Countess' dentures sounded like a goose chewing on dominoes. Wonderful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Swan | 11/19/2011

    " This book was an amazing introduction to Tom Robbins. As one of finest, I laughed, cried, was aroused and inspired by this book, and the characters and concepts contained within. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 6/17/2011

    " nice movie adaptation with uma thurman. book's better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Millstein | 5/26/2011

    " beauty and big thumbs don't always spell success "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alana | 5/12/2011

    " Once again Tom Robbins is awesome! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 5/8/2011

    " I read this in the 1970's. So much of what went on in my life back then was a blur. I should probably read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tasha | 4/25/2011

    " One of my favorite reads of all time. Period. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene | 4/13/2011

    " Very strange but very good; a *big* thumbs up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debfagan | 4/12/2011

    " Love the way he writes - quirky quirky quirky and fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aram | 4/6/2011

    " Totally amazed. What a fantastic writer. To keep all the stories and plot lines going and to use such fantastic prose. "I believe in everything; nothing is sacred/I believe in nothing; everything is sacred. Ha ha ho ho and hee hee." Sums it up perfectly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yuri | 4/6/2011

    " read the book and never watch the movie! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 4/1/2011

    " Another of those fabulous authors, I think, where you need to find everything he's written. Fun stuff. Smartly sarcastic and always unpredictable mixed with a bit of the surreal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chorpenning | 3/31/2011

    " Robbins tells the story of a woman on the move (hitch-hiking with her enormous thumbs) and ponders the nature of time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rufusmontecalvo | 3/26/2011

    " i liked the musings regarding women and paganism. beyond that, it's difficult to identify with the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew | 3/19/2011

    " OK, Mr. Robbins, I gave you more than enough time to woo me. You failed. There are some occasional flashes of poetry or insight, but mostly I'm just plodding through absurd interactions between silly characters, and all I'm getting is emptiness--nothing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 William | 3/15/2011

    " This was too silly for me, but I did manage to finish it. I don't think he has a good opinion of women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebking | 3/6/2011

    " I enjoyed most of the 75% I read, but the side stories are just too much for me. Time for me to move on to a new book "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon | 3/6/2011

    " Super, super not funny to me. A shame, really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 3/3/2011

    " Uhhh.... I guess this was written at a time when "feminism" was still dominated by male viewpoints or something. Because I found a lot of this book offensive/irritating. He is a unique and interesting author, but I would start with one of his other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 2/22/2011

    " Mostly drivel.

    I bet Tom Robbins loves to hear himself talk. "
