4.0 out of 5 stars A Christian sermon wrapped in a wacky adventure, June 15, 2013

This review is from: Awake In Hell (Kindle Edition)
A very fun read, but be warned: it seems to be honestly Christian, and by that, I mean it asks the reader to believe in a Christian God. It gets downright preachy at the end, with platitudes like, "Everything happens for a reason," and "We are all part of the grand tapestry of God's plan." If those phrases turn your stomach, chunks of this book will not sit well with you. To certain readers, this book will probably come across as wise and spiritual. To others who don't believe in a supreme being, it may strike you as it struck me - a kind of sad and familiar rationalization of modern Christianity that ignores serious theology (and logic) in favor of feel-good, New Age togetherness.

So, why four stars? Because, gosh darn it, it is still quite a fun romp. Up until the end, when it begins to take itself so seriously, it's amusing to see this particular rendition of Hell. There is a lot of mystery and I kept reading to see what kind of crazy situation the heroine would get into next. I actually couldn't put it down and read it through in one sitting. If you're not totally turned off by the preachy aspect, give it a try. It's every bit as interesting as the premise makes it sound!

I started the book and just couldn't leave it alone. Wonderfully written and with the right amount of humour. A great persons view of hell.....

This is a very humorous look at what happens when you end up down under and we're not talking Australia although the temperature is far higher. This Hell has opposite values to the ones we're taught are good and wholesome while we're alive and kicking and while Helen Downing's heroine tries to work out what she's done to deserve this fate, an even more bizarre set of events befalls her and all because she can't resist being helpful to her Hellish inmates. A riveting read.
