As soon as I read the first page, I was hooked. I love the writing style: not a word too much, which makes it a fast and pleasant read. It is funny and serious at the same time, has a touch of sarcasm, whichI love. The story makes you wonder how nice one really is towards other people, or what the real the motivation is behind one's actions.
I don't know if there is an English translation out on the market.
Imagining you meeting a hot looking carpenter, falling in love with him and finding out he is - or thinks he is - Jesus. That's what's happening to the protagonist in this book. Don't ask what Satan looks like, by the way.
Again a fun page-turner with a message and a more light view on religion.
I somehow liked Mieses Karma better - maybe because the theme fits to my current working situation - but am happy I own this book as well.
One could say that all Safier's books are more or less the same. I have read all three of them within less than two months. If there would be a fourth book coming out right now, I would not hesitate to buy it. What can I say: I am a fan.
