The author paints a vivid picture of hell that is both dark and humorous. There are places people burn, but there are bars where great music is played, and there's a whole lot of whiskey to drink. Most of the people Barlow first runs into are bikers. They seem to be in on a secret that Barlow isn't aware of, which, of course, is that he's in hell.
He does meet a nice girl named Candy who is there to meet and greet all the men that arrive. He's the only person that treats her nicely and they have a love affair in hell.
I was enjoying this book until about halfway through or so when I realized that all the women portrayed in the book were only there to service the men sexually. Does this mean that all women in hell are whores, somehow worse than the men, because although the men are also in hell, they get to enjoy the company of the women. What do the women get as a break from their eternity in hell? Nothing, as far as I could tell.
As I said, I liked this book. It was written satirically and the characters in hell, including Lucy, are entertaining, but what is the deal with the females? The men get to ride their bikes and get drunks, but all the women seem to do is service the men sexually. What kind of hell is this?
It just gets worse when Barlow's wife gets to hell. The description of her is truly disgusting.
This wasn't a bad book, but the author either hates women or doesn't know how to write about them. That ruined the book for me.
ride his Harley all he wants, drink all the beer and whiskey
he wants, while having a beautiful, sexy woman as his
companion. Please, send me to Hell!
Lucy is more of a mob boss than a horned monster, and his
punishments and favors are fair.
Nice to see Barlow's cheating wife got her due when she
met her demise.
The Twilight Zone meets dark comedy meets Lucifer (the tv
show). Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed ready this story and found it hard to put down. Although the characters were unbelievable they were believable. For what he was, Lucy was a lovable character. I found this book enjoyable and even amusing at times. I would highly recommend it.
I think once you choose to read this you won't regret it. Totally recommend it!
