Howlers Galore Nov 3, 2008
It's not that the plot was full of holes. I have forgiven worse for the sake of a good time at the movies, though I'm usually a tad more demanding of fiction.
It's not that the angels acted like spoiled children while looking like jeweled gods. That is, after all, an ideal type in some circles.
It's not even that Alec's hazy theology and vague social criticisms were mutually inconsistent. Plenty of people find it difficult to reconcile their religion with their social consciences (or lack thereof).
No, it was the sea urchins that got me. When Alec described sea urchins and dolphins frolicking in the purple waterfalls of heaven, I cried. For the poor deprived author, who has never seen an urchin. For the dolphins, whose safety was so cruelly endangered. And for all the urchins and other echinoids who wish to frolic, but lack the requisite appendages.
There's bad, there's bad good, and then there's this. It's indescribable, really, but "bad astounding" comes close. I don't say you should buy it. Crime should not pay--and linguistically, Alec's a natural born killer. But if a copy should fall into your hands, pause for a moment to contemplate the weird perfection of the nadir. And enjoy it.
A future best selling writer. Oct 4, 2008
I give this book two stars for the subject matter. Ever thing else was to garish from the first page to the last. Who needs to know the name of ever gemstone in this heaven Mrs. Alec created. Beyond the many flaws, the story did bring up some interesting points like the creation of Adam and the strange alien worlds Lucifer briefly mention. One thing that bother me was when Michael was throw in prison to be torutue for what reason? to prove his loyatly this isn't explictly explained by Mrs. Alec. One more thought, the war in heaven lasted only about twenty pages, this was suppose to be the greast battle in the casmos and little detail was given. The war wasn't even a war simply reduced to a battle where Michael and Lucifer barely exhange sword swings. I hope one who is more adapt at writing will come along and produce a sound discriptive novel about this War in Heaven.
Blasphemous Book Aug 1, 2008
I will not recommend any one to read this book. This book has no basis in the bible. Some of the things mentioned can be derieved from the bible but majority of the book is written on human basis and can no where be found in the bible. I will highly ask people not to waste there money on this book.
Good Book Jul 8, 2008
I am not a huge, fiction fan and I only tend to read it if the story line truly interests me. There have always been two prominent themes expressed with fiction that I have found fascinating, History and Biblical History. I know that Wendy Alec gets a lot of flack from the naysayer's concerning God t.v. and her support of Todd Bentley, however I truly felt upon reading this book that the author had a fully literate understanding of the Judeo Christian God's love for mankind and the sacrifice he made by sending himself to die for his creation to quench his own thirst for justice when no one else would fit the job. As I read earlier, it was clear to me that Wendy was more so telling Christ's story in the book rather than Lucifer's. It was a great read.
Excellent book.. couldn't stop reading it Feb 16, 2008
This book is amazingly well written. I am not an avid reader of fiction.. But I tried reading this book as much as I could in my spare time. I used to wait eagerly till I got the next opportunity read it. What touches my heart the most about this book, is the way that God's love is depicted for mankind.. On how Someone so awesome, full of wisdom, power and knowledge loves us so much! It also echoes on how eager God is, to fellowship with us. Although it is fiction, you still get a glimpse of how wonderful Heaven is!
