5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 15 July 2010
By Karen
Format:Paperback
When my colleague told me about the humorous book his friend wrote about IVF and low sperm count - my response was that there is nothing humorous about either of those subjects (from my experience)! My curiosity got the better of me and I ordered Gabriel's Angel - it is by far the best book I have read in years! Everyone will be able to identify with one of the characters - maybe more! It's funny and witty but also sensitive and brought a tear to my eye more than once. It makes you think about heaven and God and St Peter and what happens when we die - without making you feel anxious about death and what's to come. I am seeing a lot of things a different perspective now!
Gabriel's Angel is a must read for everyone!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven. A different view... 11 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
Gabriel is hovering in a coma. He's between life and death. He's been given his own angel who will help him 'come to terms' with dying...

Mark really brings his characters to life and a few times made me gasp out loud at the dark things that happen to them! (the barbed wire incident will stay with me)
I especially enjoyed (strangely)the failed eighties pop star character, so gruesome, so selfish... so funny.

I found it very interesting to read about IVF from a male perspective, moving too.

Haven't read anything quite like it before. An interesting premise, well written and paced. Also quite humorous in places too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem 4 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amusing, thought provoking, insightful, sad.

It's a cleverly written book and I enjoyed it greatly. I laughed out loud in places - and I love when a book can do that.
I don't usually go for this type of book, however I had just finished "Stranger than Kindness" and was keen to read another by this author.
I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heartbreaking and humorous book 27 Feb 2014
By Kathy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I came across Gabriel’s Angel whilst gently browsing Amazon during my lunch break. Being an unashamed name geek I was drawn in by the name Gabriel on the front cover, a name that causes conflict in my mind every time I come across it. Reading the description I decide to surrender a couple of pounds and purchase a used copy. A decision I certainly don’t regret.

The setting for Gabriel’s Angel is interesting. The premise is a therapy group in a space just below heaven. This therapy group comprises of dead and nearly dead people who are there to talk about their lives and establish whether they go to heaven or back to their lives, or end up in the depths of hell. The plot looks at the lives of these people before and after their deaths.
The eponymous Gabriel is grieved to find himself in a coma and in therapy, stating more than once that he must have already gone to hell. With his partner Ellie, he was going through IVF before he was hit by a car. His plotline also follows Ellie’s attempts to finish the IVF process. Julie, the woman who ran Gabriel over, is also in the group. Her guilt rings through for doing this to Gabriel. Her love life pans out on Earth whilst she is unconscious and provides a lot of the humour within the novel. Yvonne was murdered by Kevin and both are unhappy to find the other is present in the therapy group. The interplay between these two is interesting and humorous but sometimes gets a little straining.

The two angels, Clemitius and Christopher are very different characters and play increasingly estranged roles in the plot. Their character development was one of the highlights of the book for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book! 29 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed reading this book, I couldn't put it down! I needed to know what happened to Gabriel! Interesting perspective on the afterlife and how one incident could change the lives of so many. I started taking the book to work to read during my coffee breaks and now I have 3 people inline waiting to read the book.

This is a story about two people involved in a car crash who meet up in the waiting room to wherever souls go to in the after life and the rapprochement that follows. It is very amusing and an entertaining read.
