rating: 5 of 5 stars
What fun! If you are of a squeamish disposition, this novel might be over the top, but Leitch Smith’s blend of fantasy, current cultural references, literary and Biblical analogies, and a ripping (pardon the pun) good story make this novel a winner. Told in alternating points of view, Leitch Smith has truly a masterful hand at characterization and voice. She also has a sly wit, and some of the scenes are hilarious, while others are truly eeuww-gross. But I had tears in my eyes at the end.
