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.
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.Read more ›
