Start by marking The Astrological Diary of God as Want to Read . In many respects this is a joyous, audacious, absurd and entertaining book about the foolishness of religion and politicians and most of mankind.

Start by marking The Astrological Diary of God as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. That's all true and you do remember the good stuff after you finish the book. The problem is that that book lacks "middle". I won't say "substance" because that means all sorts of things that don't apply to what I believe Bo Fowler was trying to do with the book. No, "it lacks middle" is fairer and less loaded.

A masterpiece of religious parody in the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut.

Japs Eye Fontanelle, an 88-year-old overweight, retired Japanese kamikaze pilot, insists that he is the rightful king of the Holy Channel Island of Jersey. He also claims to be the Creator of the Universe. This is his autobiography, written while under armed guard inside the gold vault at Fort Knox. Fontanelle recounts his truly remarkable life: from his birth in the city of Kyoto and his involvement in World War II, to his study of the ancient science of astrology, the historic discovery of his own divinity, and the founding of the first Astrological Kingdom on Earth. Occasionally, when he isn't busy creating galaxies, he takes a break to watch "Star Trek".

Structured in twelve meticulously-researched, hilariously funny zodiacal chapters-and padded with photo inserts revealing such delights as God returning from his ninth suicide mission, Shinto monks, and God's genitals- The Astrological Diary of God is a savage and irreverent take on modern belief.

  • If Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and the late Douglas Adams contrived to have a crack baby together, Bo Fowler might have been the result. This wacky successor to Fowler's astonishing Scepticism Inc. delights in poking blasphemous fun at the notion of God, modern cosmology, and the cast-offs of Japanese culture after World War II. The plot concerns a morbidly obese delusional failed kamikaze pilot who thinks he creates galaxies each time he masturbates. He winds up being tried by the U.N. for having littered the universe with enough much excess mass to kill Time itself, but who cares? In manic fast-paced prose, Fowler skewers religion, astrology, and the conventions of science fiction -- in all, not a bad day's work. The philosophically-trained Fowler persists in mistaking the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (truth in reviewing notice: one of my employers)for an atheist organization. But the notion of skeptics across the world inflating their bright orange life jackets each time public credulity offends them is priceless all the same. The lists of historical events that are mystically "parallel" from an astrological point of view are priceless too. Blasphemous, superficially nonsensical fun -- highly recommended.

  • *smiles* Namely because they read reviews like the first two.

    This book is FUNNY. They should not have said it's like Vonnegut because I think Fowler is doing something quite different, giving us a totally different narrative and book.

    He masturbates a lot.. so do you, the only difference is that he is God and he creates universes when he cums.

    If you can read that and not be intrigued, you don't wanna read this.

    The read is easy, the pacing is perfect, great pictures, and it is severely funny -- whether you know a lot about astrology or not.

    The message of the book is great and the indeterminate ending feels satisfying because it is answered... maybe.

    It's a great read, but not for poseurs to the literary form.

    Postmodernism at it's snickering best.

  • I was unable to finish this book. Half way through I thought if I want vonnegut I can read breakfast of champions again. So I did.
