3rd review of 'Manna-X' :-)

A 3rd review on, from Anonymous - I can guess who it is, thank you.

Here it is, so true...(4 stars! Come on!)

4.0 out of 5 stars It's worth reading, July 12, 2013
This review is from: Manna-X (Paperback)
This is the kind of book that makes one reader say to another 'It's worth reading'. (Except if the particular reader is a catholic priest with no sense of humour.)
The book never takes itself/anything too seriously (not even the Bible). It both imitates and makes fun of today's popular fiction (The Da Vinci Code, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo etc.) at the same time. However, imitation does not turn into copying any of them, on the contrary, Manna-X has a plot that is original and entertaining enough to make you want to read the whole story without taking a break.
Making allusions to modern bestsellers and paying homage to great literary classics do not exclude each other in the book: the author is obviously a great admirer of Beckett's Waiting for Godot...
No page without a joke, no biblical character or event that is interpreted in the usual way. Surprising, innovative style, at some points downright provocative. (Moses loved animals....)
So, read this book. And then, pass it on. It's worth reading.
