    A review should summarise and evaluate give the potential reader a sense of what the book is about and whether it is any good The Astrological Diary of God baffles both these modest aims To say that it is about an enormously overweight Japanese ex Kamikaze fighter pilot who believes himself to be the Supreme Being and who has founded a new religion based on astrology A review should summarise and evaluate give the potential reader a sense of what the book is about and whether it is any good The Astrological Diary of God baffles both these modest aims To say that it is about an enormously overweight Japanese ex Kamikaze fighter pilot who believes himself to be the Supreme Being and who has founded a new religion based on astrology a character who is kept under lock and key by the American Government in Fort Knox and put on trial for the murder of time to say this does not convey one tenth of the riches of this hilarious, philosophical and deeply strange book Evaluation is difficult too for stretches Fowler does achieve something of the superb brain burned intensity of his mentor, Kurt Vonnegut and in particular Vonnegut s brilliant Breakfast of Champions which this novel most closely resembles Just as often, though, the mixture of spaced out prose, astrological diagrams, drawings and photographs including a striking picture of the genitalia of God, a picture which turns out to be something else by the end can leave the reader not quite knowing how to react This novel is challenging, strange, funny and extremely readable Fiction doesn t come much hipper Adam Roberts

    1. This book was truly funny and throws ideas at you in the same offhand manner as Philip K Dick might for instance It s a fair size book but you can tear through it in no time at all and you will enjoy every page.

    4. 2 Stars seems a bit harsh, but if you look at the listed meaning It was OK is a fair enough comment.In many respects this is a joyous, audacious, absurd and entertaining book about the foolishness of religion and politicians and most of mankind That s all true and you do remember the good stuff after you finish the book.The problem is that that book lacks middle I won t say substance because that means all sorts of things that don t apply to what I believe Bo Fowler was trying to do with the boo [...]

    6. A clever, funny commentary on the mysterious workings of faith and scepticism in the minds of the masses which would have gotten 5 stars from me as a short story, but as a novel it simply drags on for too long.
