    Bobby Dollar is an angel - a real one. He knows a lot about sin, and not just in his professional capacity as an advocate for souls caught between Heaven and Hell. Bobby’s wrestling with a few deadly sins of his own - pride, anger, even lust. But his problems aren’t all his fault. Bobby can’t entirely trust his heavenly superiors, and he’s not too sure about any of his fellow earthbound angels either, especially the new kid that Heaven has dropped into their midst, a trainee angel who asks too many questions.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I'd recommend a book to a friend that likes angels vs. demons stories, mysteries, and is more concerned about having something fun to read, rather then something that would amuse or surprise him.


    Would you recommend The Dirty Streets of Heaven to your friends? Why or why not?

    I guess I answered that on my first response.


    What about George Newbern’s performance did you like?

    Yes. George Newbern does a very good performance. He gives a lot of personallity to Mr.Bobby Dollar, as well as some of the other characters. I mean, you can not only identify the character by the way he reads, but you can also get a feeling on its mood and intentions. Well executed!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    You know what? Yes, I would! Although I was a bit disappointed with it as a book, I think it would make a very nice thriller on the big screen.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed by the lack of creativity of the story - too many clichês for my taste. It felt like Mr Tad Williams (which is a terrific writer) was being pressed by his publisher to deliver a book faster than he'd like, and his solution was to come up with this fast and easy to read story, but that lacks on much of the depth of his other works.
