What I like about David Maine's writing is his narrative voice, different in each of his books, but each sharing some common themes that make the characters come alive with humor, sarcasm, irreverence, malice, sincerity, honesty. Especially in The Book of Samson, the story seems to be a personal conversation between the reader and the hero of the story, and this makes the tale come alive in new ways. The actual Biblical narrative is not very long, but in this book, it comes alive with characters that seem as fresh as if they were living today. The very humanity of Samson is heartbreaking, even when infuriating.
