This is a typical Luann Rice book with the story pulling you in and leaving you wanting more. The father is in jail in Ireland and coming home soon, his oldest daughter is marrying a boy she shouldn't be, his middle daughter is searching for a sign from Mother Mary, his youngest doesn't understand, and his wife wants to move on with life. They must all try and rebuild their lives together after that night in Ireland. The book was an enjoyable beach read/listen but a bit slow in places. If you like her other books you will enjoy this one.
Wow, what can I say. As a woman, I'm so thankful for where I live. As an american, I'm so sad for the conditions we allow to continue, but as a human I see the beauty in this. All I can say is read this book. Get a new prespective on the world.
This is my second Christoper Moore book and while I did enjoy it, it was not the laugh riot I wanted. There were several good parts that really cracked me up, but realize you know how this is gonna end, after all, we are talking about Jesus and his friend Biff. Also, if you are very religious... not so sure you would like it, makes fun of a few issues, that are pretty amusing if you ask me. Lets just say, Josh likes bacon. All in all though, I would recommend it, though maybe not as your first Christopher Moore book.
This is my first Christoper Moore book and I had a blast listening to it. I loved the off-beat sense of humor and found my self laughing out loud to this book more than once while riding along in the car. A few warnings, this is NOT a book to listen to around children, the F bomb is used, A LOT! ADULT CONTENT! Ok, other than that, lets just say I can see my child saying "not up the ......" to some class too as I would be in some ackward situation like that. Enjoy it as I have!
I listened to this on the book on a 13 hour car ride and while my husband didn't enjoy it, I can state I did very much. I enjoy all her books and this was no differnet. The plot twist while expected was also unexpected by who it was and the back story as to why it happened and how it played out also added so many layers to an enjoyable story.
