About Lorem Ipsum

Lorem Ipsum lives next door to you. He writes those things that should not be. And he may, or may not, be a sworn initiate of the Illuminati.

"And I had done a hellish thing,
To those who believe, I caused 'em woe:
For all averred, I had killed The Word
When I created Missing Zero.
Ah wretch! said they, The Word to slay,
And cause such dis-ease to grow!"

This book was quite different to what I was expecting, being (surprisingly enough) a very considered read. The writing is both intelligent and sharp — if at times a little overblown.
As for the idea of a person living symbolically as the anti-Christ, and who is as bewildered and lost as any one of us, it certainly makes for a very effective comic foil.
I’m not sure I would recommend the novel to any of my more staunchly fervent religious friends, however; although it is essentially a story with both heart and humour.
Wickedly funny in parts, it is the conspiracy theorists’ compendium par excellence. And there is contained within it enough arcane mysticism and philosophy to excite the most questioning of minds.
If I were to re-title the work I might call it something like, “Zen and the Art of Moped Maintenance”, it being altogether quirkier than Pirsig’s original cult classic. In summary, “Bring on the Dawn of Global Psi Consciousness!”
