A Book From Hell

Are you like me, do you crave a good story about Satan, and how he may or may not be misunderstood? Do you want to know his side of the story?

Of COURSE you do. And here is the book for you:

I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan

In which the Prince of Darkness is given one more chance to redeem himself if he can live a good life in a human body.

Author Glen Duncan’s voice is rich and complex in all the right ways:

“I’m in love, truly, madly, deeply in love with perception.”

The first thing to say about Eve is that she was a big improvement on the Adam design, or that Adam was an extremely misguided variation on the Eve design. (Consider testicles. Two concentrated nuclei of absolute vulnerability. Where? Dangling between the legs. I rest my case.)”

“The road to Hell, you say, is paved with good intentions. Charming. But actually it’s paved with intriguing questions.”

With a heartbreakingly human soul, Lucifer’s story parallels humanity’s struggle to understand the cost of free will and rebellion.

Give it a read.
