Ed Abbey called The Monkey Wrench Gang his 1975 novel a comic extravaganza Some readers have remarked that the book is a comic book than a real novel and it's true that reading this incendiary call to protect the American wilderness reuires than a little of the old willing suspension of disbeliefThe story centers on Vietnam veteran George Washington Hayduke III who returns to the desert to find his beloved canyons and rivers threa. I had a tough time getting through this book Every character had basically the same personality and the story just rambles and rambles People seem to love Edward Abbey for his out there ideas but they don’t do much for me at this time

I blame reading this book at an inappropriately young age 9 or 10 for the violent gag reflex that occurs whenever I smell patchouli as well as the involuntary NOOOOOOO that I surprise myself with every time a ratty college do gooder accosts me with a clipboard and a jaunty do you have a minute for the environmentAlso the surfeit of clunky unshaven back of the VW with a dog looking on from the front seat sex that occurs every second or third chapter couldn't have been good for my overall development That however is between me and my therapist
