Publisher's Summary

Fifteen years after losing most of his family to a devastating, pudding-related tragedy, Simon Debovar has settled into a life of self-imposed exile from the stinking, selfish morass of humanity. Content that his daily highlights will include hazelnut coffee, a long bath, and the occasional jar of olives, his life is completely upturned by the discovery that his ornate living room carpet is the deciding factor in a bet between God and Satan.
When mysteriously well-timed carpet thieves deprive him of the crucial heirloom, Simon is forced to leave his hermit's existence behind for a world of angels, demons, witches, and immortals.
And then it gets complicated.

NOT a substitute for Douglas Adams

This was clearly trying to be another Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It fails miserably.

not bad, but not great

This book is like Douglas Adams trying to wrote like Neil Gaiman. It was a decent book, but fell short in a lot of ways. Unfortunate, really, the potential was totally there.
