Martin Little, Resurrected is an insightful, compelling, fun, fast-paced, and humorous read. It is easy to care about the main character, because his day-to-day life is so recognizable and sympathetic. I don't want to put any spoilers in this review, but I will say that the novel takes a delightful and, for me, an unexpected turn soon after the opening scene. I got caught up in Martin's story from page one, and I appreciated the change in him as the story progressed through his many adventures. It made me think about how I treat people, and reminded me that we can all be a little bit better/nicer if we try. The story was well-written and highly imaginative; it flowed nicely from start to end, and left me quite satisfied. I definitely recommend Martin Little, Resurrected, and hope to see more from Ella Medler!

If you like reading fantasy novels this book is for you. What an imagination this author has as she dwells on what heaven would be like in her make believe world. I would have never thought of computers in heaven, but this shows you the creativity of Ella Medler. Martin Little Resurrected is colorful with the story of Martin who seems to have no confidence in himself and discouraged of how his life was on earth. Learning patience, and to take chances his world changes. This novel is delightful with many turns and twists to keep the reader from putting down the book. Good Job Ella Medler.

Martin Little, Resurrected is a clever and imaginative piece of fiction. I don't want to elaborate too much on the plot for fear of introducing a spoiler, but suffice it to say that the writer does a wonderful job of grabbing the reader from the start and not letting go. The journey includes colorful characters--each loveably flawed--for whom you'll enthusiastically root, and a well-paced story that will keep you guessing at its direction. The writing is sharp and humorously mocks the bureaucracy of everyday life. Fans of fun, witty, and quirky reads will especially enjoy this novel.

Why would you ever want a story's protagonist to be an insecure, boring, "by-the-book" man with a somewhat pessimistic outlook on life?! Well, let Ella Medler take you by the hand and show you exactly why. She takes a self-conscious, nerdy, disgruntled Martin and lets him take the front seat in the story by telling it from his perspective.

The novel is a humorous ride through an alternative world, where Heaven is an inefficient bureaucracy and Hell, frankly, sounds like a place you may want to hang out.

Revolving around a limited number of characters, the story gives you ample opportunity to get attached to each one of them. However, nobody grows through the course of the story more than Martin, and it's wonderful for us readers to be tagging along for his "self-discovery" journey. Well written, sprinkled with humour and subtly poking fun at dysfunctional systems in our the real world, this book will keep you thoroughly entertained.

Review of “Martin Little, Resurrected”, by Ella Medler

Martin Little is an all-around expert—at losing. Just ask him. His mother is not shy at showing her disappointment in him, his sister finds him a complete burden, and he can’t seem to hold a job for very long.
As in life, so in the afterlife, which he gets to without any warning at all. A few hours in the slammer for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, a jailbreak, and – piff! – life is over. The only thing that makes it all worthwhile is a young lady he meets while in the drunk tank. She is also the only reason for following his new friends through such adventures as breaking into Heaven, sprouting wings without a permit, and hacking into Eternity’s computer database.
Along the way, he meets various and assorted heavenly celebrities, be they Christian, Greek, Norse, or Disney (yes, you read that right). What is even more astonishing is to find that the Head Honcho, Cronus, is anything but a leader. Somehow that title was wrested from him. Martin finds the reason behind the switch from Deity to Bureaucracy, which leads the group even further afield. It’s a crazy ride, from Heaven to Hades and back again, as everyone in Martin’s circle finds, and loses, and finds, their reasons for existing.

What a refreshing, fun read this was! There are more twists and turns in this book than there are red-plush corridors in the halls of Heaven! At least, the Heaven in Ms. Medler’s take on the place. So many fun, memorable characters. So much going on!
The biggest thing, though, and really the best-written, is the change that comes over Martin.
