On the other hand, reading Edwards' take on Genesis was refreshing and kept me wanting to read on. His humor and excellent knowledge of the material kept me riveted. He notices all the stuff nobody talks about. He leaves out the stuff that nobody should have included, which is most of it. I thought myself a sort of lay-expert on the inconsistencies of the scriptures, but the author clearly surpasses me in this department.
Warning: if you get off on reading the begats, prepare for disappointment. If you've ever noticed the inconsistency with which the creator flip-flops on the names "Jacob" and "Israel" (spoiler: the same person), you'll probably dig this.
It's funny. It's informative. It's brief. I hope this book begets more in the series!
That said, I can't really add much to the other reviews. :) It's a retelling of the Bible's official Origin Story, but with a tad more skepticism and a lot more humor than the original. It's a fairly quick read, but don't go through too quickly, as you'll miss some of the more subtle puns and cultural references. It helps to know the source material, but is just as much fun even if you've never found yourself reading the Gideon Bible in a hotel room at 3:00 am, not that I ever have.
I should note that Micah is a friend, and that I am a fan of all of his work, both under his name (Ricky's Spooky House) and under his other name (So There I Was) - yes, those are suggestions that you go buy them. :)
