Well, my impression thus far is that Robbins mostly writes books with the intention of putting characters into usual sexual situations, and he demonstrates this again in this novel.

Fierce Invalids is a story of an a paedophiliac CIA agent “Switters” who finds himself cursed by the shaman of a Peruvian tribe. And from there it really goes downhill.

Robbins is interesting because he produces some truly hilarious writing, and is probably something of a raconteur in the real world, but this novel swings violently between the ridiculous and the tedious. Fortunately I was not in a mood to read anything complicated, so this was just about right.

So… unless you’re confined to bed for any reason. Don’t bother.
