Apocalypse Next Tuesday by David Safier
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A wonderful, light-hearted and, let’s face it, silly story but oh, what a delight. It’s quite short, a quick read and that’s just right for this as it’s highly enjoyable but any longer and I feel the entertainment factor would probably pall. As it is it’s fab but not for the religious or serious minded! It is all quite complicated. Set in Germany a 34-year old girl falls for Jesus, says no to God, makes a deal to save humanity and survives! We have salacious retiring vicar, Gabriel (the archangel), Satan appearing in the guise of George Clooney and a strange appearance for Emma Thompson in Jane Austen land! Wacky it certainly is and the most enormous fun. Highly recommended.

If you like David Safier you might also like to read books by Marika Cobbold, Marie Phillips and Sally Vickers.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Win a signed copy of Circe

Circe

Circe is the amazing sequel to The Song of Achilles by Madelline Miller.

"I remember Circe was one of the challenges met by Odysseus, the one who turned men into pigs. The beautiful character who narrates this story is that same “wicked witch” but a far cry from how Homer portrayed her. She is lovely, misunderstood, wilful and brilliant, a strong woman slowly growing into her power." - Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Apocalypse Next Tuesday by David Safier

Bridget Jones meets Life of Brian When 30-something Marie jilts her boring boyfriend at the altar she wonders if life can get any worse. So when a handsome carpenter comes to work on the roof, she realizes she has nothing to lose by asking him out. Even his bizarre assertions that he is Jesus isn't enough to put Marie off--her biological clock is ticking, and it's time to settle down. Meanwhile, Satan (a dead ringer for George Clooney) is on the prowl, recruiting horsemen for next week's Armageddon, scheduled for Tuesday, and Archangel Gabriel has discovered the pleasures of the flesh and is off on a sex marathon. Things are looking grim. Fortunately, Marie is dating the son of God--maybe, just maybe, he can get things straightened out. Provocative and blasphemous (with added pizza), this is a wonderfully light, witty book full of surprises.
