Sometimes a Great Notion: A Novel by Ken Kesey
This is a truly great book. My favorite of Kesey's although `Last Go Round' is good it doesn't compare to the weight that this book carries. What I find I like best about this book and parts of others that Kesey has written are the build up throughout the book when two intriguing characters finally meet to fight it out that I just explain as what happens when the Irresistible Force Meets An Immovable Object. Just fascinating and has me ready to read this book and the other I mentioned to capture once again the feeling of anticipation and nervousness that I experienced when I first read them. If you haven't read any of Kesey's books or just have read `One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting, 13 Dec 2012
I really enjoy this author's books and especially The Wave Series of which this book is a part. The Wave books tell the story of part personal journey and discovery, deep research and thought, and explanation and addition to channeled material from the Cassiopeans. I find writing a review of The Wave books doesn't do them justice since each book covers such a wide range of topics. In this particular book the concepts of Facing the Unknown and Petty Tyrants as first written about by Carlos Castaneda provide a central concept from which many other topics are addressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars short but entertaining, 11 Dec 2012
I almost decided to give this one a pass due to its price and short length, but glad that I decided to buy and give it a read. This isn't Sanderson's best and I think I feel that way because it was just short, yet if you are looking for a short read that isn't going to take a number of books to come to a conclusion then this one might be for you. I hope Sanderson builds off this book and `Elantris' as he continues that series.
