really liked it

This book was such a delightful read! It does an excellent job of taking another look at they way things are in the world and making you laugh at how ridiculous it all is. Picturing God as a guy bored in his job and rooting for the Yankees is just so funny to me.

The premise is that God is the CEO of Heaven Inc. and he has become bored in his position. Because of this, he decides to destroy the world and open up an Asian Fusion restaurant. Two Angels, Craig and Eliza, bet God that they can complete a miracle in one month and save the world. The story goes through what happens.

The book is a super easy and quick read. If you're looking for something humorous that doesn't take itself too seriously (and will make you look at the concept of Heaven and the afterlife in a whole new way) then I highly recommend giving this book a once over.
