somehow it appears to me as if the story's been curtailed, and thus unfinished...
Sincerely, I didn’t expect this book to be like this... I haven’t read anything else by mr duncan, so I can’t really get a whole picture of his style end plots, but I can say this book is unpredictable and as you go on, it really menages to get you into the storytelling. Something refreshing, new (at least to me).
Really shocked me the ending... in a nice way.
I found myself wondering why I was wasting my time with this horrible story.
Perhaps in the author's mind it has sense, but it's far from what the publisher says in the back cover.
Now this is a truely fantastic book. The basic premise is that God offers the Devil one last chance. If Lucifer can live one month without sin then he will get into heaven when he dies. Does Lucifer take up the offer?
Well of course he does, but not so he can be redeemed but so he can have some fun. Mainly sex, drugs and the movie-business.
This is a very funny book, that manages to also be very emotionally effecting, but very unsentimental.
The prose is absolutley wonderful, in a way a sort of stream of consciousness but also a collection of stories abut different times in history. I loved the way everything seemed so much "more" when Lucifer experienced it, like that Kavanagh poem Advent: How if we are denied something then we appreciate it all the more....Continua
