"Mr. Allen's ability to weave fiction with historical events while building this story just plain worked. No Heaven is an engrossing read, and will give the reader much to ponder." Reader's Favorite Book Reviews.
"Kudos to the author for producing a work of fiction that's, at once, intellectually stimulating and a lot of fun to read." Reading Glass Reviews.
"RaisedChristian, I am drawn to debates surrounding the holy bible: creationism versus evolution, science versus religion, etc. Tenets of the faith are central to my world-view, although I cannot converse intelligentlyabout scripture, so I find fictionalized discussion highly alluring (ala Dan Brown). Why not wrap it in story, as the bible does, as do thesacred documents of all religions? ... And along comes Lex Allen." Adrienne LaCava.
"No Heaven, while revolving around the apparent 'second coming of Christ,'is many things, but one thing it isn't is 'Christian Fiction.' Reasonably open-minded fans of that genre may enjoy this book, but those whoexplicitly avoid it will too." - Big Al's Books and Pals.
"... there is a great deal of artistic license taken in the writing and, inthis case, this really works; the inclusion of conspiracy theories,paranormal occurrences and historical accounts mesh nicely together tomake this a complete and unbiased viewpoint of what is a highlyflammable issue." Cate's Book Nut Hut
"Allen's proposedviews on spirituality borrow heavily from Buddhism and the philosopherBaruch Spinoza (whose very sensible view of God was accepted by AlbertEinstein himself)... There is no reason for the people of thevarious religions of the world to oppose one another." Nick Verboon -Amazon "Vine Voice" Reviewer.
"His knowledge of the Bible, first century events, quantum physics,and current science is remarkable. The story is imaginative andinteresting. He keeps even the skeptical reader riveted to the outcome.He does a better job than Dan Brown." Seeley James.
"I found "No Heaven" one of those strangely beautiful original novels whose substance shines on the reader's consciousness like aglorious sunrise..." "I suspect this first part of a continuing storyis going to become a classic read." Patrick - Reviews by The Thursday Interview
