However, my latest find - "And God Said..." has replaced the Brit for sheer wackiness in writing. The "laugh out loud quotient" is pretty much every page. Trying to give someone a synopsis of this book is pointless. Just insist that they read it. I can't wait to start telling my religious friends about a book wherein Pat Sajak performs the wedding ceremony for God and his girlfriend Sally. (I wonder how many times people will re-read the previous sentence.)
Funny. Hilarious. Outrageous.
I think you get the idea. May I suggest that you read this book on an empty stomach, although the opportunities for spit-takes are endless.
The most entertaining book I've read in ages. Do not miss it. You don't want to get God pissed off.
In the first one quarter, the book cracks a number of jokes both religiously themed and otherwise. I wasn't offended by the religious jokes but I was bothered by the fact that most of the jokes, both religious and otherwise, were not funny. In addition the plot seemed scattershot and the plot threads loosely, if at all, connected.
Ordinarily, I would give a book I was unable to finish (despite being motivated to do so) only one star but this one gets two stars because the author has got a very good premise (God is sick of his job and meets a woman on Earth and falls in love) and the writing is crisp and clear. Unfortunately, the humor doesn't work out and the plot is unable to hold my attention.
It is hard not to think of Douglas Adams when following through the antics. I've read all five books of The Hitchhiker's Guide at least three times and I'm sure that "And God Said..." is going to be one of those multiple reads, too.
"...He wasn't sure when the Highway To Heaven requirement kicked in. Or, for that matter, who he would have to answer to if he didn't want to watch Michael Landon smile angelically as he saves cancer-stricken war widows from evil capitalists that are planning on evicting them from their childhood homes to build a factory that is powered by kittens and produces cigarette-smoking machine guns."
I never felt anything in the book was mean spirited toward religion and would have no problem recommending And God Said... to any of my open minded religious friends. I'd probably skip the recommendation to any very conservative Christians though.
If Eric Ralph continues to produce novels like And God Said... then one day soon he will be the one `driving the bus'.
It also raises serious doubts about the author's sanity!!
