Book Report

Lo and behold, I finished a book.  For me, that's an accomplishment.  When I can only get about 20 minutes a day to read, finishing anything lengthier than the back of a cereal box is memorable.

Last night, I finished Sandman Slim, by Richard Kadrey.  Plot synopsis without too many spoilers:  Man returns to this world after spending 11 years in Hell without dieing.  He's back to kick ass and chew gum, and he's fresh out of gum.  He bumps up against unholy ethereal creations, Homeland Security, and life in Los Angeles.

It's a gritty and fun page turner.  The main character is the ultimate anti-hero.  That is to say, he's a mean SOB who's mean for a reason. 

If you're devoutly Christian, be warned that this book pokes all kinds of holes in and fun at Christian dogma about God, Lucifer, angels, and the residents of Hell. 

I'd suggest this as a good weekend read.  Since it's the first of a series, I'll be getting the rest of it as time goes by.
