Questa Bibbia umoristica mi ha fatto abbastanza sorridere, soprattutto la spiegazione della creazione di Adamo che all'inizio,doveva solo fare il giardiniere dell'Eden.
Sono presenti molte frecciatine al genere umano e sembra quasi che il ns.Dio abbia un amore spassionato solo per gli animali e le piante. Si legge in pochissimo tempo, ma soprattutto non ti annoia.

If you are easily offended by things that could be considered sacrilegious, don't read this book. If you love creative humor on the other hand, you will be laughing out loud reading this book (which can be a rather amusing thing for the people around you). Here's a choice tidbit:

"So I created this little place (heaven). Nothing too ostentatious - just somewhere to hang My halo, as it were. Although don't take this halo business too literally, I obviously don't wear it all the time. It might look

Recommends it for: anyone who can laugh at religion
For all of us who love any sort of humor pocking at organized religion, this book is for you!!! And don't fear having to put all other books aside, this is actually one of the shortest books i've ever read, next to fight club. This books is filled with many, very Douglas Adams-like footnotes about what your reading, referencing what your reading as well as making notes to his other "books" like "god on gardening" and "101 things to do with a pillar of salt"
Do yourself a favor and pick this up,

God mentions in the preface of this book that the Bible, while well-intentioned, left out some important information and he's writing this autobiography to get the facts straight. What follows is a witty retelling of the creation and early history of mankind that reveals familiar characters and events from the Bible in a whole new light. The only fault I can find with this book is that it ends somewhat abruptly, with a lot of Bible stories still left unexploited.

Very funny book. An irreverent take on the old testament. If you are someone who gets offended when people make fun of religious feelings/icons etc this is not for you.
Unputdownable is the only word for this book.The only complaint is the book ends rather abruptly and doesn't go all the way to the end of the old testament.
Read it along with another book of Pascall- the hiss and tell memoirs. This one is Satan's autobiography.

Walks through well known Hebrew Scripture scenes with an eye for comical bits. Tone is more in the manner of friendly ribbing, rather than the anti-theistic animus of Saramago's Cain, say.

I'd tell you how hilarious this book is, but I'm out of breath from laughing too much. Read this review with quotes, pictures et al while I clutch my sides and try not to fall off my chair: http://theinsomniacsleepwalker.tumblr...

Un libro simpatico che si lascia leggere velocemente. Eppure mi ha deluso. Certo qualche risatina (ma proprio ina) ci scappa, ma niente di più.
Se volete davvero ridere su questo tema, vi consiglio "Parola di Giobbe" del grande Giobbe covatta, è infinitamente meglio di questo.

irreverent, cynical, but quite funny satire on what God did in Genesis--like a Dave Barry column--might be fun for an adult read aloud but has some inappropriate references/language

Only slightly sacrilegious. Clever and witty and if you don't take yourself too seriously you will laugh.
