3.0 out of 5 stars hmmmmm........ 24 Jan. 2014

I'm a huge fan of satirical fiction loaded with religious icons and mythology. I love the idea of a myriad of Jesuses and their purpose in different realities but his story telling is a bit contrived and unnecessarily complicated.
5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who + Jesus = Hijinks 13 Jan. 2014
By J. Skelton - Published on Amazon.com

It's rare that I shove other things aside to read a book - and yet Burnt Jesus had me hooked so quickly, I had read through most of it in one evening (my body forced an agreement that it was time to get some sleep about three-quarters of the way through).

Doctor Who Meets Jesus - that's how I summed up the novel's tone at the beginning, and the assessment is pretty head-strong. If you're a fan of the alternate-dimension, space-and-time genre, you'll feel right at home in a matter of chapters, but those who shirk sci-fi won't find themselves overwhelmed with technicalities. Like the protagonist, Leon, you'll soon finding yourself simply accepting the concept of conventions of Jesusi and the magical appendix.

Burnt Jesus is neither irreverent nor preachy, and remains humorous without being obscene. The pacing is quick, and while the book keeps a humorous beat, main characters still develop and grow over the course of antics meant to save the universe. My only complaint - and one likely to be nullified with a later edition of this book - is the occasional typographical error. The laughter and smiles the story left behind, however, leaves me ultimately more than satisfied with this little gem.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great concept and well written 25 Jan. 2014
By Keith Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
When I came across this book, I was first hooked by the cover and title, then the whole idea of multiple Jesusi. Since I love alternate realities, dimension hopping, and so on, I thought this would be right up my street. And it was.

This book is well written and filled with unique ideas. I can't imagine religious readers being offended by anything here, but if they were, I would say they were very insecure and/or have very thin skin. This tongue-in-cheek tale doesn't try to put down religion but instead multiples it across many universes.

If there WERE such a thing as alternate dimensions, the concept of Jesusi dying in different ways and at different times in history makes perfect sense. In fact, it's fascinating to think how much history would change if the Jesus we know had not been crucified but instead burned at a stake or drowned in a pool -- or perhaps he just slipped on a banana skin and banged his head; odds are that this would happen in some realities!
4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Completely Original 8 Mar. 2014
By Roger Eschbacher - Published on Amazon.com
What if you found yourself in the middle of a meta-universal murder mystery where alternate reality 'Jesusi' (Jesuses?) were being picked off by a mysterious fiend? That's the very strange situation ordinary schlub Leon Spingle finds himself in when the title character, Burnt Jesus, enlists his aid to track down the murderer and save the remaining Sons of God from being wiped out completely.

Author Alspiret spins an interesting yarn that is well-paced, suspenseful, and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor.

On a side note: The book's description uses the word 'sacrilegious,' but I would soften that to 'irreverent.' As a person of faith (and avid sf/f reader) I wasn't the least bit offended by this innovative and interesting twist on our reality's 'Jesus story.'

4.0 out of 5 stars some good ideas here 13 Feb. 2014

a multi-dimensional detective story with an unlikely hero- and some truly unexpected twists. The idea that there's a Jesus for every Earth- and they all die in different ways- has been revealed elsewhere, so I'm not spoiling here.
Uneven in places, but turns in unexpected ways.
