Customer Reviews

The rest of the book is pretty much filler, and bad filler at that.
Robio Dante
Of course, it's also lighter and easier to carry so if you want to be able to travel with a bible, this is the book you want.
Thesanica Marcos
The main character of the story is the author himself, which is normally an winning formula.

I have a couple of deluxe-edition Bibles given to me as confirmation gifts that see little use. As a compulsive underliner and annotator, I just can't bring myself to vandalize a leather-bound Bible with gilded parchment pages. This "pulp fiction" production of the King James translation, on the other hand, is just the ticket to guilt-free consumption for those of us who take "active" reading to the extreme. It's cheap, disposable and easily replaceable; it adds very little weight, takes even less space in my book bag. As for the translation, the King James is the only way to go for those of us take literature seriously and prize metaphor as the analog for apprehension of the non-verbal. For "accuracy" of translation, I'm still partial to the Revised Standard (New Revised, if need be) but have yet to find a working man's copy as serviceable as this one. (Warning: the print is quite petite.)

A bible is a bible except:

1. The letter size is so tiny (Times Roman 6 or 7 points) that you need a reading glasses. My other bible bought at amazon was in giant letter size, 16 points. So obviously you should check the letter size first before placing an order.

2. In paperback form; the pages are easy to tear.
If you want to buy it for someone else like a convert, I would recommend a more *readable* and durable copy.

3. The delivery time was decent; the book condition was new as in seller's comments.

Pros:
Only one: Price is reasonable.
Cons:
The smallest print of any larger Bible that I have ever seen.
Print too small to read!
The old saying "You get what you pay for!" is so true. Why waste your money on a small print large Bible? Spend a couple more dollars for a larger print Bible.

Format: Paperback
The language is rather lovely, and poetic, although portions of the book do appear to resort to excessive synopsis. The third and fourth chapters, in particular, are guilty of this, with the third being a drab list of rules and regulations presented without elaboration, in a sort of authorial filibuster, and the fourth being a litany of tedious revenge fantasies. Some of the later chapters are quite interesting, and there's a lovely romantic interlude, but the tendency towards authorial filibuster doesn't completely disappear.

Also, the main character is a bit inconsistent, sometimes appearing kind and loving, while other times wrathful and vengeful. This dichotomy could be an interesting plot device, but alas the book never goes into detail about why the disparity exists. We are simply left to wonder at it, or just figure "that's how it is". Frustrating.

The book does suffer a bit from uneven editing, as well. For instance, there's a fascinating tale about a golden bull statue, which is unaccountably buried in between two tedious and nearly identical descriptions of carpentry. What's the deal? I admit that editing such a large work can be trying, but surely such duplication should be easy to avoid!

Overall, though, it's not bad. I am rather disappointed that the publishers chose to bundle the inferior and hackneyed sequel with the groundbreaking and innovative original, however. Really, if the sequel can't stand on its own merits, why include it at all?

It takes skill to bring out a book in instalments and maintain consistency. The number of different styles, themes and even contradictions in The Bible lead me to suspect this was not entirely the work of the supposed author. This seems confirmed in the latter section, the New Testament, were several chapters are named after individuals. But even in the earlier parts it would appear that several ghost writers with different levels of skill and approaches to narrative were used.

That is bad enough, but some of the content appears to have been plagiarised. For example, the story of Noah and the flood bears a striking resemblance to parts of a Sumerian blockbuster called Gilgamesh. And the hero of the latter part of the book, Jesus, having a virgin mother and divine father is hardly unique when older Greek stories claimed both Hercules and Dionysus had such origins.

The hack responsible for the section that consists of who begat whom has little idea of what makes for a good story. Other parts are spoiled by excessive smiting and some of the violence has distinctly kinky overtones, such as thirteen mentions of foreskins including, ‘The king does not desire any dowry but one hundred foreskins of the Philistines.” Philistines were subsequently slain and cropped. Or take Yahweh helping Elisha by sending two bears to kill 42 children who make fun of the prophet’s baldness. If Yahweh had sympathy for the slap-head, why not just send him a wig?

Fact checking is not a strong point. Surely someone on the editorial team must have known that rabbits and hares do not chew the cud or that genes are not changed by what animals see.

I picked this up because I heard it advertised as the Gospel, which translates to "good news." It opens up by telling the reader how the human race is doomed because two poorly developed characters ate an apple that a snake told them to eat. That's not good news.
