Summary

Hell's too full, so the Devil hires ad man Dirk Quigby to pen a travel guide enticing travelers to different afterlives: Hindu, Catholic, Protestant (that one's got a lot of subdivisions), Scientologist, and more. Instead of writing a boffo best seller, Dirk unites all religions in a common goal: kill Dirk.
E. E. King grew up in one of those tolerant households that don't force religion down kids' throats. This is the result.

Well performed with some novel ideas

There is a lot to like about the performance. The voice actor lift the words from the page with skill and good characterisation. However, this is a triumph of presentation over content. The writing is not especially good and the story is ultimately unsatisfying no matter how novel the premise. While I did enjoy this book, it was deeply flawed. That said, there were genuinely funny moments and the idea is very unusual. Neither good nor bad, this filled a few hours pleasantly.

Cute

It is a fun book. Worth the time. A great, funny overview of many religions.
