Book Description

Disgusted with God’s plan for Judgment Day, Satan has quit his job and
abandoned Hell in favor of a quiet retirement in Washington, D.C. But
life on Earth is tricky for an ex-angel with a short fuse and no
impulse control. When a parking attendant mysteriously bursts into
flames and a weight-challenged woman somehow ends up in low-Earth
orbit, Satan finds that he has attracted the attention of several
meddlesome federal agencies. Even worse, there are signs that the
governor of Texas has somehow gone ahead and started up the end of the
world without him.

The Prince of Darkness heads for the Lone Star State, where he tangles
with a megalomaniacal televangelist, joins the Militant Arm of the
American Geriatrics Association, and wields the Flaming Shotgun of
Divine Justice at a guy whose hobbies include invading churches to
denounce ritualized cannibalism. Through it all, one thing is clear:
Someone has to put a stop to Judgment Day. Now, having spent
millennia trying to wreck the place, the Devil may be the world’s only
hope.

WARNING: IF YOU ARE STRONGLY RELIGIOUS, OR IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH BAD WORDS, THIS BOOK IS PROBABLY NOT FOR YOU.

Format:Kindle Edition
As the first book i've read by this author (in fact i think it's his only one so far) i began with no real expectations, except perhaps that i may be disappointed as i find humorous books can be very hit and miss. I needn't have worried though as it's the funniest book i've read in a long time. Anthony Miller has a sense of humour that i suppose could be termed 'zany' and the premise and story are quite ridiculous. However, i found that just added to the comedy and there are many laugh out loud moments throughout the book. The story gets off to a flying start as we see how Satan deals with the kind of day-to-day problems (work, traffic wardens and dealing with obstinate people in general) that can try the best of us, never mind the Prince of Darkness with his anger management issues! Yes, he does get angry and yes he does smite the odd person or 30 but the author manages to make him come across as very likeable and almost amiable at times.

Satan is without a doubt the most entertaining character in the book. There are other good characters involved, although i found some of their parts less enjoyable and always looked forward to Satans reappearance. In this the author is perhaps a victim of his own success. The finale seemed a little rushed and was not as satisfying as i had hoped. However, in this story the plot really takes a back seat to the comedy. If you're looking for sheer entertainment value from a book then i would definitely recommend 'What would Satan do?' and am looking forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars a laugh on very page 24 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Such rich black humour! A totally brilliant book!
I didn't know what to expect from this really...it was free so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

From the first chapter you know you are on to a good book here, at points I was actually laughing out loud! Something I don't usually do that often when reading.

I did feel the ending was a bit of a let down, but where could the author go after such a damn good read?!

There is something in this that is bound to offend everyone! I suppose in a way that is what makes it so funny.

Give it a read.....nothing to lose and a lot of laughs to gain

4.0 out of 5 stars Black comedy 3 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I had a lot of fun reading this. Definitely not for the ultra-conservative or deeply religious, this is a very funny, entertaining read that takes the mickey out of the whole Armageddon idea, complete with angels, demons, corrupt politicians, and the most unlikely Whore of Babylon you'll ever read about.

When Satan gives up hell as a bad idea, he soon finds out that a quiet retirement on earth is not all it's cracked up to be. And when it looks like a crooked politician is starting the end of days without him, Satan decides to step in - to stop it happening.

What happens when an ex-angel with poor impulse control, a talent for swearing and a bad temper decides to try to save the world make for some absolute laugh-out-loud black humor. Personally, I sympathise with the whole elevator issue.

I'm rating this four stars instead of five because in places the humor felt a little forced and jarred a bit for me personally. On the whole though, lots of fun and smoothly done.

Recommended for : Lovers of black humor, horror and fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!! 12 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fantastic find! It's a magnificent ball of chaotic weirdness that kept me chuckling all the way through. Miller writes with a loose, anarchic style that belies it's carefully crafted structure. Maybe it's a teensie-weensie bit rough around the edges, but so what? Just buy it already!

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of the world has never been so funny 1 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the most entertaining take on the end of the world since reading Good Omens many years ago. Arnie's comparison to the Devil being a choirboy still makes the top three, but this slides in easily at number two.

For me story is always king - but not in this case although the story is just fine. Here it's the characters that stand out and the star of the show is naturally the devil himself. Having decided that he's been dealt a sucker's deal in his role in Armageddon he leaves Hell to its own devices and lives life as a regular human. Well not quite. He has anger management issues, especially when it comes to frogs.

With Satan's character the author's writing shines. It has a whimsical and very funny style that carries the humour perfectly. And it doesn't just work for the devil, the other characters come across strongly as well. The roles of each character aren't clear from the beginning and here again the author's talent shines. As the story reaches its conclusion it becomes clear and I appreciated the planning of it.

For me this was the perfect package, good story, well written and characters that kept me interested throughout. Well worth a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny. 19 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I took this book on holiday as fancied something light to read. It is very funny and I had a few looks when I chortled to myself on the sunbed. It's a short book, nicely written, and, as I already said, very funny. It's not deep and meaningful, but I got it as a free download and thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the writers style of writing and will look out for more books by him. My only criticism would be that it wasn't long enough, but that is purely because it really was a funny book.

This was an enjoyably brash "End of The World" story. Except Satan knows he's going to lose, so pushes off the Earth to avoid being humiliated. Read more

Very funny! It would have been nice to read more about Satan, he is such an endearing character in this book. There better be a sequel to address this !

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful garbage
Shame on the person who told this author to "go for it". Neither of two of them should have bothered.

Not a new idea - Satan wanders about in the modern world and creates mayhem - and, for me, far too in-your-face. Read more
