    Teri and Phil had never needed their own personal god. But when Phil is passed up for a promotion - again - it's time to take matters into their own hands. And look online. Choosing a god isn't as simple as you would think. There are too many choices; and they often have very hefty prices for their eternal devotion: blood, money, sacrifices, and vows of chastity. But then they find Luka, raccoon god of prosperity. All he wants is a small cut of their good fortune. Oh - and to crash on their couch for a few days.

    This was the first book I've read by A. Lee Martinez - and I was hooked. It was funny (right up there with Tom Holt), irreverent, and a fast fun ride. Other books by this author had higher reviews, but this one just caught my interest. And I'm glad I started with it because I enjoyed it so much I went straight to his highest rated book (Gil's All Fright Diner) next and was very disappointed in comparison, and may not have given the author another chance had I read Diner first. But because of Divine Misfortune I'm willing to try a third.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book was engaging, and on the surface can be enjoyed as a simple sci-fi story, but could also lead to stimulating political and ethical conversations. I enjoyed it on both levels and have thoroughly enjoyed the debates I have had with family about whether what was done to Ender was 'right'. I would recommend reading it with a friend or two, just so you can talk about it during and after.
