Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
...the immortal, the dead, the vain and even the ones dumb as bricks and snotty nosed! In his first book Caile has earned his place by Gaiman and Christopher Moore..Oh yeah and fellow Englishman who wrote "I, Lucifer" . Thank goodness I was lucky enough to catch all of his books while they were free. He now has one more follower!!!!

Wow....

...and I have some more FANTASTIC reviews from Christoph Fischer, a Top 1000 reviewer! Thank you, sir! He's hooked :-) AND he can write! His books are VERY GOOD! I'll write another post about that later...

Here's his review about 'Rage'...

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired October 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Rage of Atlantis" by Dani J Caile is the fourth book by this author that I am reading in direct succession. I got hooked on his absurd yet clever sense of humour after the first. Caile's work features fantasy creatures, biblical themes and of course in this excellent book the myth of Atlantis.
This is a thriller with heavenly intervention, a moral tale about greed and corruption, a magical fantasy story and a very funny read, all in one book.
Caile has a knack for presenting human nature with sharp observational humour but by bringing in absurd and hilarious elements he keeps his readers engaged and entertained. His characters are well put together, his choice of plot is truly inspired yet his themes are never far from reality.
A captivating book. 
 This one is on 'Beth. Fiasco'...

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and very funny October 13, 2013

"The Bethlehem Fiasco" by Dani J. Caile is the third of his books I have read in short succession and is probably my favourite. Similar to The Life of Brian it is a satirical and humorous take on the Jesus Story but in a different way, particularly as it is less political and over the top but instead more benign, respectful and good humoured.
I felt that instead of being a satire on Jesus the book uses the Jesus story as means to joke about humans in general. Caile does a great job at introducing contemporary and modern elements into the story, such as the Egyptian 'Bistro', and portraying Heaven as yet another administrative nightmare. The three wise men have funny accents, Jesus has run out of cash and has to asks his father and so on. All of this serves to make us feel closer to the Jesus story than distancing us from it. To imagine Jesus as a 'performer' and his friends as regular pals adds value to my understanding of his story but thankfully there is no pro or anti message in it either.
The book is full of very funny and original ideas and is meant to entertain in a clever and intelligent way and that is certainly accomplished. Caile has clearly put a lot of deep thought into this. The comparison to Pythons stands only because so few have attempted the subject successfully.
A very rewarding and funny read.
