5.0 out of 5 stars
amazing!, hilarious... wow, 3 Nov. 2011
I am difficult to please when it comes to a new author and my reading lists normally comes from the booker shortlists or Nobel lit winners, in short it takes a lot to impress me but wow this book did! It was recommended to me by a friend and I can't thank them enough! I honestly don't think I have laughed out loud so many times at one book and I grew up on Tom Sharp and Douglass Adams! it's nuanced satire and flawless comic timing coupled with a wacky imagination makes angels with furry faces a perfect example of what would happen if you crossed Tom Sharp with Terry Pratchett... Where else would you find turf wars/gang fights between Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses alongside a fox with split personality syndrome who thinks she's a squirrel!!! If the second coming of Christ was this hilarious I would convert in an instant! Highly recommended.
