    One of my all time favorite books, I don't know how many times I've read it! There's so much going on here, from people's obsession with fame and fortune, to religious fads, to . . . just everything. Interestingly, though, my kids didn't find this as funny as LIZARD MUSIC, though personally I have always preferred it to that book. I wonder if they're just a little young, and don't get what's going on?

    As I may have previously mentioned, I love Daniel Pinkwater. This book is no exception. While it is clearly a product of its time, it still weaves an entertaining tale of guru-ism as a business, entangled with fast food, horse racing, childhood, and fabulous wealth. If you are a Pinkwater fan, read it.

    amazingly ridiculous book that is great for anyone who wants a silly, relaxing story, about a teen boy who becomes a millionaire in the most silly way!

    The first book from my childhood that I chose to read myself and the first one (along with A House With A Clock in It's Walls) that I truly enjoyed. Date read is approximate.

    The book that I just finished is called The Last Guru by Daniel M. Pinkwater. It started off talking about Harold, and his Uncle Roy are like best friends. Uncle Roy is that kind of guy who spends money on horse races and at casinos. “It is mostly about a wish-fulfillment fantasy in which Harold Blatz, an otherwise ordinary boy who likes to build model boats and who generally keeps to himself, has the ability to quickly earn huge amounts money.” It takes money to make money, and at first he must work very hard to earn his big stash of cash, though it does not take him long to realize that he has the ability for knowing where best to invest and for choosing the best people to help him make these investments. He soon recieves great power as he becomes the third richest human being on Earth. “Despite this vast fortune, he remains the same modest, compassionate, and good-hearted person whose favorite hobby is building models and who wants to help people when he can.”

    My mother bought me a copy of this book when I was a kid. I read the first third of the book before misplacing it in the mess that was my bedroom. The book always stayed in my mind, partly because the kid in the book begins amassing his fortune by betting on a horse.

    I recently picked up a copy and it's as good as remembered. I loved the book because instead of focuing on the internal development of the kid (how wealth affected his innerlife, his personality), it uses the kid to show the effect that money had on his family, his community and the world. There some satire on wealth and religion but there's also a fine introduction to bhuddist philosophy. This introduction is never heavy handed though. It's funny and generous and quite ridiculous.

    A fine read.

    This was my first Pinkwater book back in the late 1970's and it ruined me for life. Never again would I settle for average books with average plots populated by average characters. Finding Pinkwater is akin to finding a gourmet restaurant when you've only experienced IHOP for your entire life...it changes everything.

    I'm re-reading all of Pinkwater's novels in 2014 and I'm starting with the book that started it for me.

    It's a five star book only because that's as high as I'm allowed to give it - if I had to be stuck on a desert island for the rest of my life and could only bring one author's books with me - Daniel Pinkwater is what I would bring.

    I read this short novel several times as a kid and enjoyed its zany characters and madcap plot -- who could forget Harold Blatz, Hamish MacTavish and Armand Vermin? -- so when I found a used copy I decided to revisit it. Clearly I missed a lot of the satire back then, but that only added to my enjoyment of it this time around!

    Because I read it, it's awesome.

    humorous yet profound lesson on the cult of gurus for readers of all ages.
