An opportunity missed,
This review is from: My Life in Orange (Paperback)
I grabbed this book with both hands and rushed to the till - couldnt get the money out of my hands fast enough. Couldnt wait to read what I thought would be a hilarious and touching account of life as a child of Osho. What a disappointment! First off, the book's editor deserves to be shot - there was so much repetition - sometimes within a page or two - that I wondered if the book had actually been read by the editor at all. Secondly, although occasionally offering up a few genuine nuggets of information about ashram life, the book was mostly a 'misery memoir' - a child enduring much separation from a longed for mother. My sympathy for the author was unfortunately much reduced by the moaning, self indulgent tone of voice. What an opportunity missed.
If you want to hear about life as a so called Osho Beloved read Lucy Edge's Yoga School Dropout - she is hilarious on the subject of life in his five star spiritual spa in Pune - the Kylie Minogue discos, the sharing of the maroon energy field, the south american ashram babes, etc. You will howl with laughter - I promise!

I agree. It is a boring book. One I couldn't finish. However, his mum was a PhD. These people weren't idiots, they were searching and should not be derided for their efforts. A good film about communal living is the Swedish one, 'Together'.
