The Illuminatus! Trilogy

This book rocks. Anyone who likes psychedelics should read it. Anyone here read it?

If you mean The Illuminatus! Trilogy, by Robert Anton Wilson, then yes, I've read it, and its my favorite book of all time.  Theres really nothing like it that I've read.  Maybe James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, which I'll admittedly never finish.

Definitely check it out though.  Its a pure mindbend.  :thumbup:

One of the best trilogys I have ever read.
Oh the sex, the drugs, the Gods!

Have yet to read a book that seems so confusing yet fits together like clockwork. The style it is written in is worth buying the book alone. I like RAW's cut-up style even better than William Burroughs.

Tomk, have you made it to the last one. The final secret of the Illumaniti?

This book will blow you away.  I think he really found the final secret! :heart: :thumbup:

Actually the Correct name of the book is Masks of the Illuminati. :thumbup:

Hail Eris!  :cool: :thumbup:
The Illuminatus! Trilogy is easily my favorite book.
I read Schrodinger Cat Trilogy and while it had some funny parts, overall I was disappointed by it.

Has anyone read the Cosmic Trigger series by RAW? I'm interested in reading that.

I own all 3 Cosmic Triggers.  All are amazing, especially the first one.  Also check out Quantum Psychology and Prometheus Rising.  They have the same effect as Illuminatus! (mind bending goodness), but they are non-fiction.  And at the end of every chapter he puts some experiments you can try.  One involves thinking about finding a quarter, and you do.  Its creepy.  Check it out.

Pretty much anything by Robert Anton Wilson you should read.
