I ve seen a lot of comments about how this book of experimental fiction is unreadable which I did not find to be the case at all In fact I enjoyed reading it immensely the repetition of the cut up material gives it a sort of surreal hypnotic uality The writing is occasionally straight up brilliant Some of the sex stuff is a bit too much though if I never hear the phrase rectal mucus and carbolic soap again it will be too soonI do agree that it is difficult to understand the plot would be bizarre and difficult to follow even if told in a traditional manner but to then chop follow even if told in a traditional manner but to then chop up and

REARRANGE IT MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE MOST 
it makes it impossible Most the book comes across like avant garde word soup poetry and bears almost no resemblance to a traditional narrative There is a plot though about a time traveler who can infiltrate other people s bodies It is spelled out pretty clearly about halfway through the book in the chapter called The Mayan Caper Pure dissonance attrition and aggression over the Mayan battleships that distillate phosphorescent obsidians into rains of unk It ends with a dose of apomorphine though The one book by Burroughs that separates the fans from the curious The curious usually think no I am not going there Relentless In Naked Lunch William S Burroughs revealed his genius In The Soft Machine he begins an adventure that will take us even further into the dark.

Recesses of his imagination a region where nothing is sacred nothing taboo Continuing his ferocious verbal assault on hatred hype poverty war .
