Hell's too full, so the Devil hires ad man Dirk Quigby to pen a travel guide enticing travelers to different afterlives: Hindu, Catholic, Protestant (that one's got a lot of subdivisions), Scientologist, and more. Instead of writing a boffo best seller, Dirk unites all religions in a common goal: kill Dirk.
E. E. King grew up in one of those tolerant households that don't force religion down kids' throats. This is the result.

"Impish and delightful - a hilarious Zagat's Guide to Heaven!" (Ray Bradbury)
"A fantastical, profound, hilarious and rollicking good ride through the heavens and hells of the afterlife! A wonderful book." (Margaret Cho)
The narration was great and the story kept me interested
It was funny, similar to the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
He has the perfect voice for this type of book.
Lucifer, she did a great twist on his motivations.
This is a great book. Well researched and E E King's writing style reminds me of two of my favorite authors, Douglas Adams and P. G. Wodehouse.
And the ending is perfect.
"Well performed with some novel ideas"
There is a lot to like about the performance. The voice actor lift the words from the page with skill and good characterisation. However, this is a triumph of presentation over content. The writing is not especially good and the story is ultimately unsatisfying no matter how novel the premise. While I did enjoy this book, it was deeply flawed. That said, there were genuinely funny moments and the idea is very unusual. Neither good nor bad, this filled a few hours pleasantly.
