Publisher's Summary

An angel called Arcade leaves heaven for earth, where, using his invisibility, he steals books from a library with the purpose of studying. He ultimately joins several other fallen angels with a plan now to overthrow God, in their eyes an incapable and ill-informed and thus impossible creator...The great author's knowledge of history and religious texts is brilliantly conveyed, pairing extremely well with his cynical philosophy and the virtuosity in his descriptive prose.

Great book but narrator is not ideal

Unfortunately the narrator, James Holt, is just wrong... It's like Eeyore the donkey is reading....I had to speed it up to 1.25x so I wouldn't get depressed. I actually really love Eeyore...I just wish he wasn't reading this book. I think Christopher Robin would have been a better choice, or perhaps Rabbit. At least have someone narrate who knows how to pronounce French words and names with a little je ne sais quoi. Poor Eeyore couldn't even remember how he pronounced names from previous chapters. Also, each chapter he recites the book title, author, and translator before reading the chapter number and title. It is a strange habit and unnecessary as it interrupts the flow of the story. Wonderful story otherwise, a worthy read....just not my favorite voice style with James Holt.
