From the Back Cover
"A seriously talented writer, Roberge is an explorer of the everyday. Chicken franchises. Florida. The micro-politics of sex. That's where this book lives. So do I. So do you. My advice--spend the money, buy the book, take the ride." --Francois Camoin, Winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award
"I picked up Drive and I didn't put it down. The people in this book are sharp and damaged and they won't let you go even when you've finished reading." --Katie Arnoldi, author of Chemical Pin
"What we need are more stories that back us into corners. We need books that show teeth, and Roberge has given us one in Drive." --Darrell Spencer, Winner of the Drue Heinz Award
"Drive lets you know that the world isn't always as simple as winning and losing, it's sometimes just enough to survive. Drive cements Rob Roberge's place as the voice of the underbelly." --Tod Goldberg, author of Living Dead Girl and Fake Liar Cheat

Like all great novels, it's also more than that. Rob Roberge has an uncanny gift for finding these moments where life seems to write itself before you and to find the right characters to give these moments too. It's a moving, yet realistic optimistic novel. It's never over when you don't give up. When you put yourself in the way of the world and keep and open mind, you will go places you never thought you did.
I thoroughly enjoyed DRIVE. It captures both reality and social myhs in a jar, for our entertainment.
**Amazon won't let me write, ahhh, you know.
The author's hell on earth experience has embedded within her heart the truths of heaven and hell in a way that has made her
commitment to God's call upon her life come alive to people all over the world as she successfully spreads the Gospel of Jesus Christ as senior pastor at Freedom House International Ministries which she established after a Holy Spirit encounter and through the many books she has written.
Pastor Olabisi Obideyi has an amazing story to tell and she does it so well through her beautiful writing that leads the reader on an indelible journey with an expediency to choose heaven over hell if they haven't already. Many people have different ideas about how to get to heaven, but Ms. Obideyi dispels any confusion by stating the true path we must all take to receive salvation.
If you're looking for a book that gives a strong contrast between the reality of heaven and hell, "Hell On on Earth" is that book.
