about

Filled with sex and violence--in and out of time and space--the three books of The Illuminatus are only partly works of the imagination. They tackle all the coverups of our time--from who really shot the Kennedys to why there's a pyramid on a one-dollar bill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from An odd journey (prefered Umberto Eco) An odd collection of thoughts that are slowly forming a story...in the first book of the trilogy, it has been like living Foucault's Pendulum on acid. My wife, who read it first, suggests it all makes sense and becomes much funnier after about 200 pages (in second book of trilogy). She may have overstated things a little. Nothing I could write in this review would do this book justice...you simply have to endure it to understand it--okay, perhaps "understand" is a little strong. The book is not hard to read. The characters are interesting, as individuals. The 32 plot lines (I don't believe I'm exaggerating) do come together (or at least damned close) near the end. If you have a few days and just want to mess with your own mind a little, this might be the book for you. If you're looking for a solid story with well rounded characters, look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review right from the pages of the book itself The authors of this trilogy clearly had a sense of humour. They review their own work extremely accurately right in the pages of the book itself: -- It's a dreadfully long monster of a book, ... The authors are utterly incompetent -- no sense of style or structure at all. It starts out as a detective story, switches to science-fiction, then goes off into the supernatural, and is full of the most detailed information of dozens of ghastly boring subjects. And the time sequence is all out of order in a very pretentious imitation of Faulkner and Joyce. Worst yet, it has the most raunchy sex scenes, thrown in just to make it sell, I'm sure, and the authors -- whom I've NEVER heard of -- have the supreme bad taste to introduce real political figures into this mishmash and pretend to be exposing a real conspiracy. -- Extremly funny, raunchy, political, satirical and, above all else, addictive. Excellent book; highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Ullyses, but funnier At first glance, the Illuminatus! Trilogy would seem nearly impossible to read. With shifting viewpoints and timelines (not to mention shifting definitions of the truth ) on every page, Wilson and Shea's cult classic is bound to either entertain or give you a headache.
