    This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

    Overall

    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.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    Overall

    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.
