Publisher's Summary

Teri and Phil had never needed their own personal god. But when Phil is passed up for a promotion - again - it's time to take matters into their own hands. And look online.
Choosing a god isn't as simple as you would think. There are too many choices; and they often have very hefty prices for their eternal devotion: blood, money, sacrifices, and vows of chastity. But then they find Luka, raccoon god of prosperity. All he wants is a small cut of their good fortune. Oh - and to crash on their couch for a few days.
Divine Misfortune is a story of gods and mortals - in worship, in love, and at parties.

Gods Gone Wild

If you listen to the audio clip for Divine Misfortune, you will not only get a good sample of the nice narration work of Fred Berman, but you will be immediately clued in to the zany tone that carries through this whole book. A. Lee Martinez includes a whole pantheon of Norse, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and more gods in this farce and the story is presented strictly for comedy; no deep thoughts or religious commentary here. It won't bring new insights, but it will probably make you laugh out loud. The tone of the book reminded me of the Iron Druid fantasy series with gods behaving in ways that would make atheism very attractive. Great listen for some good laughs.

Office Space rewritten by Disney

A fun book. An interesting take on religion, benign, not heavy or preachy. Definitely funny, and strangely atheist friendly. There is some extrapolations on humanitarianism, but it stays in the shallow end. A novel approach to the relationships and mythos of deities and their followers.

Divine Misfortune is one of those books that's easy to relate with. A good pick me up listen after your car breaks down, or your boss yells at you. Lucky struck me as kind of douchey Raoul Duke (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,) but perhaps that was intentional.

excellent

wasn't sure what to expect but reviews seemed positive so gave it a spin. It seems I got Lucky 😀

Really enjoyed it. Story was fun and there were many places that raised a smile.

As a bonus the narrator was excellent.

Will be checking out more from both author and narrator !

Middle of the road

I've yet to come across a Lee Martinez I didn't like and this is a good introduction to his work.

Plus the narrator does a wonderful job with character voices. Which is a make or break for me on audio. No matter how good the story or info is. Bad narration = unfinished
