really liked it
bookshelves: bizarre, fiction, religion-theology, silly, funny
Recommended to Richard by: Kate
Read from October 15 to 17, 2013

I have no taste for sustained silliness and absurdity, but the idea behind this was too juicy to pass up.

Sure 'nuff, the absurdity was a bit draining. The book I found myself recalling quite often was Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, which also involves the comical humanization of angels and biblical figures.

Definitely worthwhile.
