What a great book! Loved the characters, the creativity, the dialogue ... 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 ... I loved every aspect of it. I was given Paradise by a friend who knows I enjoy good lwriting. I have to say that any book which keeps me reading the next chapter because I've become absorbed in the characters and the unfolding story is a book well worth reading. This is one of those books. I look forward to the sequel.

The premise of this is a cool idea--comatose people meeting up, crossing over to their respective paradise, though we find out quickly that it probably isn't quite a paradise. Myers is skillful at paralleling Dante's works and showing us that heaven can really be hell. Careful what you wish for.
... A very good book

Truly excellent! If Myers, a Christian theologian can mesmerise and surprise me again and again with his immense wit and intelligence, me the extremely liberal atheist then Sir, it's a heaven of a job! I can't wait to read his next work. Definitely I recommend.

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.

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.

A superb rollercoaster of a story; loved every minute!

So hilariously funny! I've already started reading the next one. I would highly recommend this to just about anyone.' Stewartc85 on Goodreads
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.
