    Story
    (66)

    Vincent Ettrich, a genial philanderer, discovers he has died and come back to life, but he has no idea why, or what the experience was like. Gradually, he discovers he was brought back by his true love, Isabelle, because she is pregnant with their child - a child who, if raised correctly, will play a crucial role in saving the universe.

    Jason Coffin says: "Thank you Neil!!! Carroll is my new favorite."
    "Why Neil, why?"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jonathan Carroll and/or Victor Bevine?

    No. The beginning of this book is so inane and idiotic in its description of the main character's flirting with women that by the time things started happening beyond the flirting I just couldn't tolerate it. I get this character is a philandering would be lothario but present him in an interesting way at least. The writing felt amateurish and bordered on the edge of Danielle Steele-ishness. If you're into poorly written stories about possibly dead, debatably debonaire douche bags then I guess this one might be for you. But NG, you let us down with this one. You can't win 'em all.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably not something from the Gaiman collection.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Victor Bevine?

    No one. This book should have remained un narrated and lost in the graveyards of used bookstores' bargain bins.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother.
