Format: Paperback
Faustroll is a Hallucinogenic cross between Lewis Carroll & Jules Verne. Magnificently dense style of a prose poem, images as strange as Lautremont's. It also reminded me of Flann O'Brien's Third Policeman, the only book that has done that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the easiest book to grasp. It slipped and ... 16 Nov. 2014
By .S.P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not the easiest book to grasp. It slipped and fell from my hands several times, but lifted my spirits with amusement every time it did. Despite the geographical increase of distance this created between my self and this book, it paradoxically became closer to my heart as a result. After reading the entirety of this book such oddities became comprehensible. Pataphysics is the science!

5.0 out of 5 stars I finally read it! 27 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pardon that Narcissus' who wrote my Review Title...
This is a fantastic book!
I bought it here from amazon.com a number of years ago, 97 or 98 and I finally read it this past week. I don't want to give anything away, because it is so utterly unique and enjoyable....However, I will say: Track down this book! Demand it!
If you are a lover of the works or just plain amazing style of one of the 20th century's greatest literary artists... William Burroughs(!), then you will LOVE THIS BOOK! Heck, You'll ADORE it.
This is a trip by boat, on land... an adventure far more exciting than the Odyssey, but perhaps among similiar lines...
A journey from a middle point in life, to the extents of certain existences... and, to death... and beyond.. Finally, you will see why it started in the middle of life!
The climax is amazing, and every scene comes across like the greatest film never made.
Dali was definately influenced, as a number of scenes in here look like what Dali was to later paint!
In the end though I found myself saying only,
"Ha, ha."
And I did not lose myself in further considerations.
Except that, I would like to close by saying something I found very important, and dare I say, Life Changing:

5.0 out of 5 stars the science of imaginary solutions 21 Oct. 2011
By Prof - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is one of the reasons I love the old Grove Press, which first published English translations of the whacky and wonderful pataphysicians Eugene Ionesco, Jean Genet, and the leader of the tradition itself Alfred Jarry who demolished schools of rationalist drama and built conceptual laboratories for the science of imagination. Ubo Roi takes the lead as the most mindblowing of all Jarry characters--obnoxious, ambitious, crude, vicious, and somehow delightfully engaging in his madcap adventures for more and more and more power. But one must read ALL of Alfred Jarry's books to really appreciate the boundlessness of his imagination. Dr. Faustroll is another imposing figure you'll never ever forget. This edition is superb.
