This book is a clever and witty. Beautifully and creatively written it is, for me, a vicious and hilarious attack on how people can take religious or pseudo-religious writings and bend the meaning to their own pursuit of power.
Self creates a world that is mad, but where the source of madness is explained in an inventive and amusing manner.
This is one of two Self books I've read. This one I loved; the other I hated.

Would you listen to The Book of Dave again? Why?
Yes - as a lot of what happens in it is so clever, you need time to digest it!
Have you listened to any of Will Self’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No - but he is an excellent reader - possibly a little slow, but I found that playing it at a slightly faster speed - 1.25 - was perfect!

Its a bit bonkers and whilst some might be a but frustrated by the ending, the sheer inventiveness, humour, humanity and Will's brilliant reading made this thoroughly enjoyable! If you're looking for something different, engaging, well written and read and funny, you'll enjoy it.
