Paradise – a Divine Comedy
(book 1 in the series)
You think you’ve got problems.
My favourite Afghan restaurant closed down. My girlfriend left. A bad-tempered lawyer named Keziah crashed her car into mine. And we couldn’t even die properly.
Paradise turned out to be a cage in the heavens where evil spirits market-tested new temptations, where everyone could see our memories, and where we were stuck forever.
A snake with a personality disorder offered us a way out. The trouble was, it meant facing up to the worst problem of all: Myself.
Paradise — a divine comedy is a disorderly romp through death, life, Afghan food and redemption.
I won this book from the site and absolutely loved it. A hysterical surrealist take on what is out there after life on earth, or next to life on earth, or simultaneous with life on earth, or whatever. A story of Gods in kilts, crystal clear memories, and walls made of our pixelated fears. Delightful. Jeannette M, Goodreads
I also won Paradise in the goodreads competition…and I am really glad that I did … Sometimes you want to hit the main character on the back of the head and tell him to stop being a wuss, but how would you react if you had to build a paradise controlled by some used-car-salesman-style gods? If you like quirky and surreal stories about the afterlife, then I would highly recommend Paradise. Katie Webb, Goodreads
A superb rollercoaster of a story; loved every minute! Phil Groom of the Christian Bookshops Blog
So hilariously funny! I’ve already started reading the next one. I would highly recommend this to just about anyone.‘ Stewartc85 on Goodreads
Myers is a great writer and his style is terrific… this was a great book Martin Gibbs Amazon.com, Goodreads.
What a great book! Loved the characters, the creativity, the dialogue, the imaginative idea of evil spirits keeping humans as pets …. There is much to think about beyond the story itself and the book gives a delightfully comic but definitely insightful look into the human psyche and soul … Susan Sutton, author
Loved the plot, the characters, the dialogue, the pace, the suspense, the surprises, the imagery, the metaphors, the depth, and the meaning. And I laughed a lot. It is really wonderful. Kenny Parker
Just read “Paradise” by Glenn Myers. Outstanding! A modern take on Danté that approaches C.S. Lewis in its joyful, inventive, insightful allegory. Strongly recommended to reading friends.Stephen March
