DNF - 50 pages in and I had to give it up. Hilarious bragging about sexual assault, deeply unpleasant main character, seems to have been written for shock factor only. How it became a "cult classic" is anyone's guess - unless we are talking a cult that removes the heads off innocent children for a laugh.

Enjoyed the story, raunchy in parts. Following the self-destruction of his world or will it be the destruction of ours as we know it? A cop out for people not to take responsibility.

The case of six sided man!
If that dice has a 'one' face up, I'm going downstairs to rape Arlene. if it's not a 'one' I'll go to bed. Let the dice decide, who am I to question the dice?
It's the story of a man that became a dice man. He starts consulting with the dice for everything, every single decision. He sacrificed all of his life to dice will. So he became a random man. A man without pattern, without habit, without self, without ego. totally unpredictable.
It's an unbelievable, amazing , unmoral and sexy story of the diceman. He tried everything, rape, murder, robbery, spirituality, womanizing, being gay even being a woman.

Warning: This book will change your life if you follow it!
Warning: Your new life won't acceptable by society's standard.
