5.0 out of 5 stars Clever, funny and a good story,

This review is from: Manna-X (Kindle Edition)"Manna-X" by Dani J. Caile is a greatly entertaining fantasy story set in the realms of both, heaven and earth. Bureaucracy governs heaven as much as it does on earth. God (Reginald), death (Graham) and the angels argue over supply issues and the request for Manna-X (which is by now several thousand years late).
Time travel, recovery of memory from a dead body and said Manna-X machine are just some parts of this highly original and well written piece, whose humour shows parallels to the great Pythons, Pratchett and Douglas Adams.
Hobgoblins, a Hungarian librarian and Satan are other figures in the colourful cast that on its own would guarantee an enjoyable reading experience. I smirked and laughed out loud at their sill or eccentric behaviours - after all, they (and we) behave all like monkeys in the eye of the author, and who could disprove him! Caile is brilliant at pointing out the absurd of the mundane and the mundane in his supernatural/ paranormal...
However,in this book the plot is particularly evolved and the 'hunt' for Manna-X and the narrative structure are cleverly set up and executed.
This is a great book for fans of absurd and comic fantasy but also for fans of satire and intelligent observational humour. Highly recommended.
