About the Author

David Callinan is the author of sci-fi classic Fortress Manhattan and co-author of bestselling guide to holistic health The 10 Minute Miracle. Born into a family in the west of Ireland he grew up in the UK. After graduating from art school he did a host of jobs from telegraphist to salesman – busked around Europe then rediscovered Irish music and formed The Spalpeens. In his early teens he appeared in films such as The Lion In Winter and Sinful Davey and scores of television advertisements. Later, he formed Urban Clearway, touring and performing with artists such as Elton John, Billy Connolly and Rod Stewart. He co-wrote a Celtic rock opera for the Edinburgh Festival. 'Pucka-Ri' starred Pierce Brosnan and became one of the hits of the Fringe, before transferring to the Arts Theatre in London. Latterly, an earlier spacey, folk-rock album, 'Freedom's Lament', recorded by Callinan-Flynn, has emerged as a highly sought after title on the Internet. He has written screenplays, thrillers, YA fantasy and a children’s chapter book series. He lives in Herefordshire, UK.

I have just read An Angel On My Shoulder by David Callinan and I really do not know how to describe it. It is about a man, Paul, who has been chosen to help to prepare the world for the coming of the new messiah. Without giving too much away, he is contacted by Angels (his Guardian Angel plus others). Now I don't necessarily dis-believe that these actually exist so the story was really quite interesting. There were dark forces at work on him as well, that were trying to prevent him succeeding and his battles with these were very convincing. Was this really happening to him or was he actually going mad? The story was quite well written and, I felt, believable.
However I found that it became very bogged down with scientific facts and a lot of discussion between Paul and some of the people he meets along the way. A lot of this discussion is really very thought provoking and while I didn't understand a lot of it, I did feel it could be worth reading again to try to understand it.
The story moved along quite nicely and as I said, I felt it was well written. Unfortunately though I have to say that, certainly at the beginning of the book, there were occasional words missing that really shouldn't have been missing hence only 4 stars. This didn't affect my enjoyment of the book though as it was obvious what the word or words should be, but I do feel that they should have been there in the first place. Perhaps the book should be read through a couple of times before publishing to try to sort out these problems. But then this is only my opinion as I don't know how this all works. One more thing I must say is that I was disappointed with the ending as it was not how I thought it would end. Who knows though Mr Callinan may have plans for a sequel. Now that would be good.
I do like this author and have read several of his books now. I would certainly read more.

I loved the mystical ideas in this book. They made me really stop and think. What if the new messiah, not belonging to any religion but sweeping away all outdated ideas and signalling a new epoch for mankind, was actually alive on Earth today? The action is this book is well paced with the hero, Paul, overwhelmed by some very real sounding angels and pursued by dark forces. This puts a whole new spin on angels and demons as if we were glimpsing the truth instead of the conventional portrayal of these beings. Funny how the cover still has the figure with wings. Maybe it's supposed to be ironic.

This is quite a spiritual book and took some thinking about to get into it, however once I got engrossed in the characters it did actually make you think about everything and I got carried along with the story. I very much like this author and have read a few of his books and this one stands out for me really as one I really enjoyed once I got into it - quite refreshing and a nice change from the usual starts of car chases or murders and so on. Overall it is a very compelling story and does make you think.
