This has been on my Good Reads shelf for a long time with a two star rating because I didn t care for the plot or the book as a whole Today I m adding a star to my rating because I ran across a whole mess of stuff I d copied from the book The story s not that great but Robbins makes some powerful statements about a lot of issues the planet as a whole is facing and America specificallyWhy would they fell trees but leave men standing Trees are a damn sight useful than people and everything in the world knows that except peopleTrees generate oxygen men just breathe it up stink it up and generally misuse it Trees hold the soil in place men are constantly displacing it Trees provide shelter and protection to countless species men threaten the existence of these species When in sufficient number trees regulate atmospheric temperatures men endanger the planet by knocking those regulations askew You can t rest in the shade of a human not even a roly poly one isn t it refreshing that trees can undergo periodic change without having a nervous breakdown over it And which has dignity the calmer spiritual presence a tree or a typical Homo sapiens Best of all perhaps what maple or cypress ever tried to sell you something you didn t want Your country America seems to have everything and yet it has almost nothing It s unbelievable In that vast beautiful powerful land of unprecedented abundance live some of the most unhappy people on earth Oh generally speaking they complement all that affluence by being generous and energetic and except for their ruling class which is wormy with evil like ruling classes everywhere rather decent But they re chronically depressed and dissatisfied Chronically Oh I suppose you can find God s fingerprints in a book even in an incoherent hodgepodge of myth genealogies inventories poetry sexual fantasy and politics like the Bible but there s a whole lot divinity in that reef down there If I thought I had to hunt for God I d be looking in a place like that

The beginning of Tom Robbins Villa Incognito has all the hallmarks of a comedic fable For fans of satire the lovable but lascivious Tanuki an ancient Japanese badger like creature with an enormous scrotum and love for women and booze ensnares the reader immediately The story to come however is much vaster than one might imagine Jumping back and forth in time between countries and between different characters the plot thickens and raises many uestions At about the half way point the complicated relationships between characters start being revealed in titbits making the read ever tantalizingMore than anything else Tom Robbins demonstrates an almost unmatched power to create satire fit for belly laughs and description that will evoke sighs smiles and tears Plot aside every sentence is a delight to behold Embedded in Robbins story are several ethical messages relating to war belief and pacifism Specifically the issue of a suffering patient s right to die with the aid of drugs such as heroine to relieve their pain is explored As one character points out why should we worry about a cancer patient s addiction to heroine when they are on a one way road towards death As a society a pain free exit from life is surely the most compassionate thing we could offer absent a cure But I regress Villa Incognito is uirky hilarious and beautiful The exploration of the Laos culture is fascinating and amusing All things are covered with eual measures of wisdom and humour Villa Incognito truly is a work of art
