Publisher's Summary

"Blasphemous...highly offensive"...and very funny!
Herodotus Shapiro has had an unbelievably bad week. His wife left him. The IRS is after him for thousands of dollars. His home/bookstore burned down. On his way to take refuge at his brother's place, he got a speeding ticket. And now his car has broken down in the middle of the desert in front of a large mansion. What more can go wrong?
But now his world takes a turn for the weird. The mansion has a snowman on the front lawn - in the desert, in July. The house, which is bigger on the inside than on the outside, is owned by Polly, the most preternaturally beautiful young woman he's ever met. Polly is an acrobat, a gourmet chef, a psychologist, an international financial consultant, a physicist, and a woman of who-knows how many other incredible talents. She has an unbelievable library, an art collection of all the world's great masterpieces, and a print of a previously unknown Marx Brothers film. Her toilet paper is actually silk. And she seems to have some mysterious plans for him....

Interesting take on divinity.

What made the experience of listening to Polly! the most enjoyable?

I do like the way Goldin laid out who God is. It is definitely the highlight of the story.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Polly. Not much to be said without giving the story away but definitely interesting.


What does Joe Hempel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joe definitely brought the story to life.


Any additional comments?

The story was interesting and it would have been better in my opinion if God did not have the urges like us human. I am not saying it's wrong but the way God was described in the book it would seem God would not need to have human urges. It would have been better if Fifi was the naughty mistress that took care of all desires.

Funny witty

This book actually made me laugh pertaining to the religious aspect. This is a fast pace ride on the crazy train. I was confused for a few chapters then I found my sense of humor.
If you are sensitive to religious humor then this isn't for you. You should listen anyway.
I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.
