B Is for Beer

B Is for Beer Free read ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF A Children's Book About Beer Yes believe it or not but B Is for Beer is also a book for adults and bear in mind that it's the work of maverick bestselling novelist Tom Robbins inter nationally known for his ability to both seriously illuminate and comically entertain Once upon a time right about now there was a planet how about this one. I read Tom Robbins decades ago for the madcap humor the uips the absurdity The sheer wacky invention B is for Beer has much less of all that well it is short so it has less of everything I guess than I might have liked I read that it was written as a kind of challenge betcha can t write a book about beer for children and it really isn t It s a book for the Robbins fan club grandpas and grandmas most of them imagining reading it to their grandkids maybe but they really wouldn t It s written with the help of Google I am guessing a series of lighthearted lectures about the history and making of beer filled with oodles of factoids No pumpkin beer isn t extracted from grasshoppers Nor hop toads either A hop is some funky vegetable that even vegans won t eat Farmers dry the flowers of this plant and call them hops I should mention that only the female hop plants are used in making beer which may be why men are so attracted to it It s a mating instinctOkay that s pretty good for a way for framing information and I did laugh a couple times but you can already tell I wanted to like it than I did It s kind of a children s book for adults in that it is narrated by Gracie6 year old Gracie has an indifferent mommy a grumpy daddy a kind of hip philosopher Uncle Moe at one point she drinks a whole can of beer gets sick and meets a beer fairy who tells her the same kind of things about beer her uncle did And stuff about Costa Rica which has no military to which said uncle moves This gives you a glimpse into Robbins wit As you are surely aware our planet is turning on its axis around and around in space It turns slowly however making one complete rotation only every twenty four hours and that s a good thing isn t it because if our world turned as fast as Gracie s room appeared to be turning the sun would be either rising or setting every fifteen minutes astronomers would be as woozy as rodeo clowns and it d be nearly impossible to keep our meatballs from rolling out of our spaghetti Not bad So Robbins can still write and amusingly but most of this book is just information that will lead home brewers to own the book But a bit sluggish on the thicker side of stout Bogs down I mean And after a series of infomercials from both Gracie s uncle AND the beer fairy I didn t need sappy kid lectures about the difference between courage and liuid courage Courage is where you find it Bravery that comes from a bottle or from book or from a sermon lacks the full strength and purity of bravery that comes straight from the heartOr the warnings about liver damage and so on I know this stuff I have a liver This is supposed to be a funny book TomOkay I did like this one though The world is a wonderfully weird place consensual reality is significantly flawed no institution can be trusted certainty is a mirage security a delusion and the tyranny of the dull mind forever threatens but our lives are not as limited as we think they are all things are possible laughter is holier than piety freedom is sweeter than fame and in the end it s love and love alone that really matters I listened to it a couple hours time and it was worth a few smiles But if you have never read Robbins start with Even Cowgirls Get the Blues Another Roadside Attraction or Still Life With Woodpecker
