Publisher's Summary

The greatest philosopher of all time is offering to sell his soul to the devil. All he wants is 20 more years to complete his life's work. After that he really doesn't care. But the assistant demon assigned to the case has his suspicions, because the philosopher is Saloninus, the greatest philosopher, yes, but also the greatest liar, trickster, and cheat the world has yet known - the sort of man even the Father of Lies can't trust. He's almost certainly up to something...but what?

Good story, bad reader

The reader kept flipping voices making it confusing as to who was talking.

He would use the same voice for the devil as he would use for the philosopher and vice versa, so at time I wasn't sure who was talking at all

Our Mortality How Will You React

This is a great story that's just as good as the Last Witness. Although they have nothing in common expect for being really good can't wait for another. There is 1 word that can discribe what the book is about but that 1 word would spoil the story so I leave to you to make it out what that 1 word is. This is a minor thing but an FYI sometimes the author wrote from different view points of view so paying attention if all of a sudden it becomes confusing a bit. Definitely replay value here.

Slight Spoiler Question Kind Of Thing To Think About After You Are Done.

1. One thing though I don't know if you can answer is why this man chose this representative.
2. How did he know his name to ask for him, also on the cover it says father of lies , we all know that Satan has that honor but from the memories of himself we can see he more like a minion of Hell that Satan himself.

Mansplain

Not a bad book, but it treated women like property. It was clearly written by a man for other men.
