A bit boring,

This review is from: Skywriting by Word of Mouth : And Other Writings, Including "The Ballad of John and Yoko" (Paperback)
There is a small bit of regular autobiographical prose from Lennon that is readable and insightful about his views on life in general. But 90% of the book is Lennon's gobbly-gooky word play that for me at least gets very tedious and even annoying to the point where I just stop reading. It reminds me of James Joyce's changing punctuations in his writing and thereby 'changing' the perception of what you are reading. Lennon of course loves to constantly redirect the reader with his alternate spellings and word conjunctions but I'm not always sure there's much more meaning to it than there is meaning to walking through a house of mirrors. Sure things look different and warped but ultimately what's the point? Again I just find it more tedious than amusing or whatever it's supposed to be. I suppose being the clever one clever is what it is I guess.
