Product description


I won this book from the site and absolutely loved it. A hysterical surrealist take on what is out there after life on earth, or next to life on earth, or simultaneous with life on earth, or whatever. A story of Gods in kilts, crystal clear memories, and walls made of our pixelated fears. Delightful. Jeannette M, Goodreads I also won Paradise in the goodreads competition...and I am really glad that I did ... Sometimes you want to hit the main character on the back of the head and tell him to stop being a wuss, but how would you react if you had to build a paradise controlled by some used-car-salesman-style gods? If you like quirky and surreal stories about the afterlife, then I would highly recommend Paradise. Katie Webb, Goodreads A superb rollercoaster of a story; loved every minute! Phil Groom of the Christian Bookshops Blog So hilariously funny! I've already started reading the next one. I would highly recommend this to just about anyone.' Stewartc85 on Goodreads Myers is a great writer and his style is terrific... this was a great book Martin Gibbs, Goodreads. What a great book! Loved the characters, the creativity, the dialogue, the imaginative idea of evil spirits keeping humans as pets .... There is much to think about beyond the story itself and the book gives a delightfully comic but definitely insightful look into the human psyche and soul ... Susan Sutton, author Just read "Paradise" by Glenn Myers. Outstanding! A modern take on Danté that approaches C.S. Lewis in its joyful, inventive, insightful allegory. Strongly recommended to reading friends. Stephen March There's lots going on in this book, with big and profound themes, all cleverly dressed up as comedy. There's much that I enjoyed about it. The surrealism, the fantastic scenarios, the comic characters, the dialogue, and the humour. I laughed a lot, usually at Jamie - the pitifully and helplessly shallow Jamie. I like the way the reality of what has happened to Jamie and Keziah after their accident is gradually introduced and builds up to a satisfying conclusion as the other plot, the finale of Gaston and Leopold's efforts also builds up to a fantastic and somewhat surprising end. But what was really good was the treatment of Keziah. Keziah had landed up in this surreal world with a load of unresolved issues and pain from her earthly existence. While Jamie is recreating lighthouses, The Space Shuttle, and Thai Red Curry for his enjoyment in his part of the new world, Keziah's world is a mix of giant syringes and bonfires with various people on them. Not wanting to say too much and spoil it, but the image of her bravely standing under the onslaught of those giant memory blobs that crash on her from a height, sending rocks and dust all over the place, is just terrific. As is the image of the water... and I won't say any more except that the treatment of Keziah is deeply compassionate and quite beautiful. The book reminded me a little of Kurt Vonnegut and also a little of the magic realist Angela Carter. It is well written and has a good use of metaphor that is always natural and never seems contrived. It was an enjoyable read and makes you think. I'm ordering the sequel and looking forward to reading it. Kenny Parker, A comic novel (the author's own words), but with a depth to it, so that the reader gets to laugh and to think, often at the same time. Shades of Kurt Vonnegut, which is high praise if you like Kurt Vonnegut! It's a book which needs to be re-read. The writer uses words well, and it's easy to miss a few gems the first time around. It takes a few pages to get into it, but sticking with it pays off. Whatever genre you favour, you can enjoy this. DCO,

From the Publisher

Glenn Myers is a fan of Douglas Adams, C S Lewis, Terry Pratchett, P G Wodehouse and John Milton. He wanted to write a comic novel about intimacy and the soul, and this is it.
