    While the first two books in the series are exceptional, I felt like this one really phoned it in: it's much shorter, and many sections are essentially collections of RAW quotes or extended hallucination passages (in RAW's trademark imitation of Joyce, wherein he lists arbitrary combinations of words, some imaginary, in the hope that some will be deemed relevant). It's worth reading for those who read the first two, but does not rank highly among his works.

    Book three of Wilson's Historical Illuminatus Chronicles is probably the quickest read of the three books, as Wilson has abandoned the egregious footnotes and gotten more or less down to business. At least as much as he is able. I find "experimental writing" as practiced by Burroughs and others to be a bit tiresome, though I recognize the effectiveness it can have in communicating ideas. Still, as I've said before, when I want to read a novel, I want to read a novel.Having said that, I enjoyed revisiting this series. Wilson is such a talented writer and that talent manifests itself best in his characters. He makes up awesome stories about interesting, compelling characters. And all the cool historical tie ins are the icing on the cake. And, while I could have done with more action and less philosophy, all in all, it's tough to put these books down.The sad thing is that Wilson died before he could write the fourth book, The World Turned Upside Down. Be warned; loose ends are not tied up at the end of Nature's God! It's a little frustrating.Nature's God is a super interesting and mostly fun read.

    I started reading this series when it originally came out in the 80's and somehow never came across the 3rd book since it came out several years later. So recently after finding the first 2 in a used bookstore I bought this one online and reread the whole series. I was hoping this one would complete the entertaining story, but it turns out the series was meant to go on for 2 more books that sadly were never written due to Wilson's untimely death. Still his work is always worth reading and he throws more ideas onto a page than most people deal with in entire novels. Of the three, this was the quickest read and also the least concerned with really moving the story along. If you're a fan of his philosophy and wordplay you'll enjoy it, even if it leaves you wishing for more that will never come.

    In some ways I like this one better than the others because it has a much clearer philosophical orientation. I particularly like RAW's excuse to go into aphorism mode with excerpts from Sigismundo's diary. I've always been a fan of aphorism style philosophical presentation ala Nietzsche or Wittgenstein. But in many other ways, this volume is not as cool as the first two. It's not as loopy, which makes it less fun for me. But it's still great!

    This is one of my least favorite books by one of my most favorite authors. At times, he seems to forget what century he's writing about and his language becomes way too modern in style. Other times, the book really soars and provides a lovely climax to the other two books in this trilogy.

    A fun read that uses actual history as it's back drop and weaves a very entertaining story, inspired by theories of the Free Masonic influence on the course of history.

    Awesome! I was pulled in from the first page, couldn't put it down, reached the end, and raced to the next book.

    compared to the first two books of the trilogy this one is rather weak.

    An anticlimactic and premature end to the story! Still good fun but it just peters out and that's horribly disappointing.

    Disjointed, hardly bob's best read, he was probably flying high writing it, less fun reading it, i think i will re-read illuminatus triology instead!

    The brillinace of this work was the way the historical foot notes gradually through out the book became longer and actually funnier than the story itself.
