Fan-Tan by Marlon Brando, Donald Cammell, David Thomson (Editor)

Has anyone read this? I saw it at the public library this afternoon, read the first couple of pages, and put it back on the shelf. Should I have checked it out?

Hi fansmom,

I did check it out, read a few pages and gave it back. Just did not interest me at the time.

Fascinating reviews on amazon.com--from "terrific" to "worst novel ever"!

I also checked it out awhile ago and did the same thing..read a few pages and sent it back. Not good at all. IMHO, I would not recommend it.

I also borrowed it and I read the first one and a half chapters but couldn't stand the character, far too up himself.Far too concerned with that part of his anatomy that men I guess are ,but I don't need to read about it.

I read about a third of it and found it boring.It reads like a book that's been cobbled together and that's what it is.....published to cash in on Brando's aura..It's really pathetic.It tries to be erotic but it's plain, boringly stupid..Hope that helps fansmom :blush:

Thanks, everyone! Your opinions agree with my brief glance at it at the library. I don't believe I'll be checking it out when I go again. :cool:
