Two more 5* reviews of 'Manna-X'


Wow, it's all happening, 2 more great reviews for 'Manna-X'. It's FREEEEEEEEEE again tomorrow as there's an interview (I'll send the link as soon as I have it)
I didn't even notice this review on Goodreads...thanks Dave! (now I know who bought it on the 8th :-)

 
Irreverent, Absurd, Great Fun.

Some of my religious friends might be offended by this book, but only if they lack a sense of humor. I found the book hilarious and at times thought provoking. Its hard to classify the story. It's a bit Sci-Fi, a bit Fantasy, a good dose of Parody and spiced with Silliness. There is a lot of dialog, almost like reading a play at times. On a few occasions I got lost and had to re-read a section because I read too quickly the first time. This isn't a criticism of the author as much as a warning to slow down and enjoy the story. 
 
And this one on Amazon! Thanks, James!
5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it!, August 25, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Manna-X (Kindle Edition)
As a `non-believer' I must say I rather enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek mocking of God, Moses and the like. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's take on certain `historical' events and must say that it reminded me in a way of `The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ' by Philip Pullman.
Overall, I enjoyed the book very much, and would recommend it highly to those of you who aren't easily offended when it comes to the true nature of their `faith' to give it a go.
The storyline of Graham's search for the manna machine works well and provides a good base for an entertaining read.
