Reviews - What do customers think about Good Friday?

Great Sequel  May 28, 2008
Anyone who loved Lincoln, A Novel Life, as much as I did will enjoy this as well. You've got to suspend some disbelief, but it's a lot of fun to think about. I'd recommend the two books to anyone who likes time travel type books. It's always interesting to think about time in a non-linear way - these two books' variation puts a different spin on it. An easy, enjoyable read.
 
Lame Premise, Incompetent Writing, Painful Read  Mar 21, 2008
Sometimes, you read the jacket of a book and think it's so bad it's funny. When I read the back of Tony Wolk's "Good Friday" - "Joan Matcham has just discovered that shes pregnant by a man who died ninety years earlier: Abraham Lincoln. His brief sojourn to the Illinois of 1955 ended, he is returned to his own time and place, leaving Joan to deal with the consequences of their night together. - I figured, 'hey, this has gotta be good for a laugh.'

And this novel is definitely good for some laughs: "Moments of the night they shared together flashed before her eyes: The omelette they shared..." Well, truthfully, I'd quote that passage in its entirety, but I gave this piece of drivel to my brother, who wasn't able to get through it. And neither will you. This book is just unrelentingly bad and makes me amazed that the author actually TEACHES English literature at the Portland State University.

There is no way I would EVER recommend spending one dime on this novel, unless you're truly masochistic and have too much time on your hands. The plot is ridiculous. (Abraham Lincoln travels from 1865 to 1955, knocks this chick up, and then returns to 1865, leaving the knocked-up chick to ponder Lincoln's life. She travels out West on a self-searching journey, blah, blah blah...) I really can't pretend to know just what in the hell Dr. Wolk was thinking. I sure hope he's a better teacher than a writer.
