On the surface, this is a world utterly transformed, yet certain things remain unchanged: protective parents clash with willful, idealistic teenagers; idols are exalted; small-town rumor mills run unabated; and children often don't realize how to forgive their parents until it's too late.
In God Is Dead, Currie brings together a prescient satirical gift worthy of Jonathan Swift, the raw appeal of Chuck Palahniuk's blackest comedy, and the thought-provoking ethical questions of Kurt Vonnegut, all with a light touch, empathy, and wisdom that make for an exhilarating experience. Offbeat yet accessible, God Is Dead is an exciting debut from a fresh new voice in contemporary fiction.

Humorously Dark, Great Sarcastic Voice
the narrator even changes his voice as he plays God, teenage boys, girls, women and young men. the voice meshed perfectly with the story and the psychology of the characters. fun read, especially the first chapter with God and Powell.

Although I realize that many a writer uses the ploy of not telling you all of the details, so you could fill in the blanks, imagine & use your own way of thinking as what might have happened or what is going to happen in the story as a way to present their art form, it does not work here very well with this book…I loved the title, I liked the idea of what the book was trying to say…I just feel the writer needed to say more, fill in more of the details…specially those that he mentions but never explains…the book feels somehow unfinished to me…perhaps there is a second or a series on the way…not sure…but the idea gets the cross just fine…I know what the writer feels, I feel most of it myself, I see it, we all do even though we may not admit to it often or ever…I suppose wanting more from a writer could also mean they did a great job, left you wanting more, that is not the case here…this one just feels undone…
