So in this book is that the sorcerer repeatedly alters Castaneda's states of consciousness, and whenever he enters another one he has no recollection of the other (except for the normal one). And guess what: it turns out he's been doing it all along! So basically he only remembers what happened in a certain state of consciousness when he's in it, which explains the inconsistencies in the previous books -- and I couldn't help thinking that this is exactly what he's doing!
He spends much of the book trying to explain inexplicable things on which -- consequently -- he does a quite poor job, thats a bit bad if you start reading it as fiction. But either way it's a nice read, pretty inspiring and at times very interesting. When I was reading it I often taught of Márquez, who makes me believe (more subtly) that magic is still happening, except of course he's a better author. But Castaneda' not bad either..
I really enjoy reading these series of books, they go far deeper to answering the questions about our purpose than anything else that I have ever read.
