Still Life with Woodpecker: A Novel Kindle Edition
Still Life with Woodpecker is a sort of a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes. It reveals the purpose of the moon, explains the difference between criminals and outlaws, examines the conflict between social activism and romantic individualism, and paints a portrait of contemporary society that includes powerful Arabs, exiled royalty, and pregnant cheerleaders. It also deals with the problem of redheads.

Princess Leigh-Cheri a rather naïve red headed young woman with the best of intentions meets self-obsessed, red headed outlaw Bernard.
I really had no idea of what to rate this book I was thinking 1 or 2 stars because I really had no idea what the hell I was reading, but then I came to the conclusion because I don't understand something should I really rate it lower than it truly deserves? I understood the gist of it but a part of me is thinking there's more to the random babbling than meets the eye. It's easy to not appreciate something that you don't understand but I'd like to think I appreciated this book.
Tom Robbins clearly has a very unique writing style. It's very different and only certain people have the ability to pull it off. I think he did a very good job. It might be easier to understand if you are on the same substance as he was when he wrote this book but I don't think it's necessary.
What did annoy me was the constant "oh, oh spaghettio", the constant "last quarter of the twentieth century" and him banging on about his damn typewriter, there's certain orifices that I'd love to shove his typewriter, all this started to annoy me. What does "oh, oh spaghettio" even mean?
This book is weird, it's strange and seems to be just random thoughts all put together but maybe that's the beauty of it.. Maybe that's part of the genius.. Sometimes a whole load of randomness makes the biggest load of sense.
One day I might read another of Robbins' books but until then I'm going to just appreciate the wonders of "Still Life with Woodpecker."
“A novel contained within a packet of cigarettes”
Read the first few chapters and I can’t put it down
