There are certain moments in this book, especially early on, that might make a double-C (that is, Catholic Conservative) a bit uncomfortable in their seat. There are also moments that get a bit too preachy about global warming/pollution/etc. And British misconceptions of America surface here and there–I know I rolled my eyes more than once.
But, hey, this is a work of fiction. A work of fiction narrated from the point of view of a materialistic demon. Written by a pair of inordinately clever guys who know that the British misconceive Americans just as much as Americans misconceive the British, and that what they’re making up on-the-fly about Heaven and Hell are not at all likely to be true. The comedy and writing in this book are top notch and worth sticking around for even if you have to bite your lip through all the sticky parts.
Suffice it to say, it’s worth reading to the end, even for those double-C’s out there.
