Publisher's Summary

"A virgin birth? A virgin? Her?" God shouted at Freud while recalling his one night stand with Mary. Freud snorted another line of cocaine in celebration, believing that this story would help Nietzsche in his quest to fire God from Heaven Inc. Nietzsche, however, has other problems: the Norse gods are running amok on Earth, his board of directors are in a constant state of chaos, and syphilis pushes him into a past life that he would rather forget. How will he prevail?

Operation Cosmic Teapot takes you on a wild, hilarious ride that explores the relationship between people and gods. Thought-provoking and humorous, the Teapot is sure to leave you wanting more.

    "LOVED this book!!"

    This story had me laughing out loud. Great story with fantastic narration! I have worked in a call center before and despised it so maybe that added to my enjoyment but this was absolutely perfect! Highly recommend this audio book to anyone who loves a unique comedy!

    Story
    "An interesting book despite its flaws"

    -Story-
    Operation Cosmic Teapot is at its core a very interesting concept. The idea that all gods are working in a call center like telemarketers hawking their particular brand of religion is both quirky and amusing at times. The book really shines in the moments when you are just watching what is happening without worrying too much about context or deeper meanings. In particular just about any scene between god and Freud were delightful. The book somewhat falls apart though if you start looking too deeply. To be fair any time when your mixing theologies your going to get some contradictions, yet there are things the book establishes then seems to forget about. For instance the entirety of the Viking gods being there at all is somewhat confusing. All other gods need to be tempted and attracted with contracts, but the Vikings just showed up after ragnarok....which also didn't end their world apparently.......also what exactly is the incentive of the gods working in a call center run by people which the gods themselves created? Maybe....ok probably, I'm just thinking way to hard on this but it did bother me a bit. Also the ending seems like its trying to make some grand point from one of the characters but doesn't really make any sense if you start thinking about it.

    -Sound-
    Derek Botten's narration is pretty good but the way the book was edited leave these strange pauses at times. Its not like 30 seconds or anything, more like 2-3 but its enough to break up the rhythm of the narration. Its a bit like when a narrator pauses between chapters to give them separation, only just at the end of some random sentences. I don't know if the actual editing work is done by the narrator or a third party so with the benefit of the doubt he still gets 4 stars.

    -Overall(TL:DR)-
    Fun book with a strange but enjoyable concept, just don't think too hard on the mechanics of the world its working in.

    -Obligatory disclaimer-
    I received this book for free in return for my honest and unbiased review of said book.

    "Operation Cosmic Teapot"

    This was a really fun book to listen to!Derek Botten was the perfect narrator.God is just one of many gods in a call center called Heaven Inc. Freud is called in to chat with the christain god and hopefully find something so they can can him.Other gods are sent to track down Thor,who has run amok.It is all hilarious!“I was given this free review copy audiobook and have voluntarily left this review."

    Story
    "Humorous look at religion"

    This is a humorous look at gods and religion. Various gods and famous dead people are employed in the afterlife in a call centre named Gods.inc., where CEO Nietzsche is trying to get God fired. It had me laughing out loud at many different parts and the narrator did an excellent job. He did the various accents really well and brought out the the humour and sarcasm in the book. From God's psych exam with a drug addicted Freud, to a Twitter using Mazda and the escaped security detail of Asgardian Gods, it's funny, easy to listen to and forms a tongue in cheek story of religions as a business. This story is well written and narrated but might offend if you are a very religious person.

    Story
    "A different look at the super powers above."

    This story is not for those easily offended. But it is truly a great thought provoking story. What if the Greek Gods and The Jewish/Christian God and all the other gods were working together in a company? This is an ingenious look at how the heavens could be and that there is not one god, but many that watch over their followers. I love how Freud psychoanalysizes God. He asks questions that I am sure others have wondered. It is truly a twist on all of our beliefs.

    Derek Botten was perfect for the narration. He was able to distinguish each character and truly sounded as I would have imagined them to sound. Mr Botten has an easy to listen to voice and narrated at a perfect pace.
