  "Can't recommend it but a passionate discussion book" by nadjaj (see profile) 09/15/09

Our group had trouble with this one. The fantasy world of wrestling plus early Christian theology/philosophy & way too many colorful characters. Not sure what the author was trying to say except comment on man's dual nature (angel/devil) which was a theme throughout. It just wasn't fun enough, unlike other "fantastical" books we've read where the reader can suspend disbelief because there's payoff with the humor, message, or language.

If you think a book constructed with rhetorical questions makes for good literature, by all means, read this.
