Novel by Thomas Pynchon
As a baby, Tyrone Slothrop was used as a subject in stimulus-response experiment. The experiment results in Slothrop (now an American soldier serving in London during World War II) becoming a human predictor of where the feared German rockets will strike next. If this sounds weird, it is, but it's just one element of Thomas Pynchon's third and most famous novel.
Either you LOVE this novel or you don't get it. There's no middle ground.
It won the National Book Award in 1974. It also earned itself third place on the American Book Review's ABR's 100 Best Books.
Falls under the category of Books that will induce a mindfuck.
