Simon Rich’s matter-of-fact tone is perfect for narrating his novel. He delivers the prose in an often dry and almost disinterested tone, which builds upon the humor imbued in his story. This style works smoothly with the ludicrous moments of a world on the brink of disaster. When God decides Earth is no longer worth investing in and wants to create a fusion restaurant, two angel underlings, Craig and Eliza, do everything in their power to prove it’s worth saving. Betting against God is never a good idea, but these angels are determined to prove that miracles can happen, with or without God’s blessing. Beyond the protagonists, Rich’s character voices come across as slightly caricatured, but his delivery often works for comedic effect. L.E. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
