I had been given a book by Francine Rivers Years ago (I can't remember which one) and I began reading it, but became distracted and put it down. Honestly, I was skeptical that a "Christian" book would be interesting and engrossing so I didn't really give it a chance. I read most of the Left Behind series and assumed that most Christian novels would be as poorly written. Fast forward to the present and I decided to try again. This is easily one of the best books I have ever read. It was engrossing, heart-wrenching, and well written. The characters came alive and I really cared about them. I can't wait to read the other books in this series as well as other books by this author.
A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore could be a fun book, if it weren't so vulgar. The story is about a man who unwittingly and unwillingly gets a job collecting "soul vessels" from the dead or dying. There are talking ravens, little animal people, hell-hounds, and f**k puppets. Yes, that's right. In fact, I think that there was one chapter where the author had a contest with himself just to see how many times he could say--the latter word combo. The problem with the book is that the author is unbelievably vulgar. So you are probably wondering why I finished it. Well, I bought it from Audible (based on recommendations from their review section, none of which mentioned what I was in store for-at least not the ones I read). Anyhow, I felt that since I bought it I should finish it because I would feel bad wasting the money, and I was genuinely curious about how the story would turn out, also the narrator was entertaining. I don't recommend this book, however, unless you like vulgarity and perversion. Seriously.
