Even though you could read Pigeonwings as a stand alone I would highly recommend reading Clovenhoof first as not only is it also hilarious the first meeting of the main characters Jeremy, Ben and Nerys is one that you don't want to miss.
In Pigeonwings we meet a few new characters but the main one is Archangel Michael who like Jeremy has been sent to earth to go it alone and live as a mere mortal.
It is now the turn of Michael to figure out how humans live and having to come to terms with his new way of life. As with Jeremy in Clovenhoof, Michaels road of discovery is one of great enjoyment for the readers. There are quite a few funny incidents but I especially loved the story telling session with the children at Sunday school and the chapters with the cubs.
Even though I didn't laugh out loud as much with this book as I did with Clovenhoof, Pigeonwings is still a really great read. How the 2 authors come up with such great characters and story lines is beyond me. These are books you really need to read to realise what gems they are, definitely the funniest series of books you will ever read.
it's crude, vulgar, blasphemous but most of all it's hilarious.
Satan isn't really evil he's just having a laugh.
In his own unique turn of phrase, Jeremy Clovenhoof is "cool, sophisticated and suave as buggery". With a sartorial elegance all of his own, Bermuda shorts, cravat and smoking jacket anyone? He cuts a fashionable dash through the suburbs of Sutton Coldfield.
Clovenhoof remains a force of nature. Doing whatever he likes, pretty much whenever he likes, and often getting away with it. He engineers situations with a perverse sense of glee just to see what the outcome will be. He is such a charmer though, that it's difficult not to warm to his particular brand of chaos. He delights in playing tricks on everyone. In all honesty, for the Angel of Abyss, most of his pranks are never really that evil. Put it this way, not that many people die, they just tend to get horribly embarrassed. I was glad to see that, like its predecessor, Pigeonwings retains its terribly civilised British sense of humor.
New to the human realm, the archangel Michael is constantly confused by what it means to be alive. His sense of horror at the most basic of human functions are a joy to behold. Clovenhoof, enthusiastic as ever, is on hand to help/hinder Michael at every turn.
Ben and Nerys, both featured in book one, also return.Read more ›
I loved Clovenhoof, and was over the moon when I heard about Pigeonwings, and I have to say that it did not disappoint. The humour, outrageous antics and the sheer exuberance of the characters that Heide Goody and Iain Grant have created have made this such a fantastic read. All of the old friends from Clovenhoof are there - Jeremy himself, Nerys and Ben - as well as lots of new friends to get to know - Reverend Zack, Andy, Jayne, the monks, and (former) archangel Michael...or as Jeremy very soon renames him, Pigeonwings.
There were so many incidents that made me cry with laughter - the Soyuz unit, the first aid lesson for the cubs, the museum, paintball. I even found myself re-reading certain parts, because I was laughing so much, and had to re-read them because I wanted to carry on laughing (does that make sense?!)
I loved watching Michael's forays into the human world, and his reaction to certain functions of the human body was so predictable - and I couldn't stop laughing at the compare and contrast moment at the pub! And the way Clovenhoof decided to educate him about other bodily functions by using posters made me cry with laughter.
This book was a joy to read, and I didn't want it to end - although of course I wanted to find out who the mysterious monks were (I was almost right - I just didn't go back far enough!) - and now I must wait for the next one to be written. Everyone needs a friend like Clovenhoof...although perhaps you might like him to stay as far away as possible, and not investigating your bathroom... Please, please give us another fix of Clovenhoof and Pigeonwings very soon!!

Equally bonkers as the first but the relationship between Jeramy and Michael adds a little more depth. There are moments of lull where I wanted to skip on but this was a great readPublished 7 months ago by Jamie
