Published almost a decade after Calling Bernadette's Bluff, Good Thunder picks up only three days after the climactic events ending the previous book. Cautioned by Good Thunder's preface, I dutifully reread the first novel. It cannot be over-emphasized: This sequel assumes familiarity with the characters and events of CBB. Conversely, CBB stands alone. Read it first. If you like it, you will probably enjoy Good Thunder. Without it, you'll be lost after a few pages.
Without ruining the previous book (the Amazon synopsis already has enough spoilers), let me say that Good Thunder takes Jack - and readers - further down the rabbit hole. At St. Bernadette's, Jack had to deal with a host of unusual characters: His professional life was plagued by indecisive university administration, suspicious nuns, and cynical fellow faculty. His burgeoning humanist club was threatened with hostile takeover by the campus Satanists. At home, tension mounted regarding his son's religious education. If CBB was a fun pro-secular farce, Good Thunder cranks the absurd-o-meter to eleven.Read more ›
