I really enjoyed the concept of this book but many of the sentences were worded in such a way they left me confused. I also had a hard time identifying with the main character Martin. He was so weak and full of self-pity, it really bothered me and I had a hard time imagining him as a male, he struck me more as a female or possibly an extremely juvenile young male. He did redeem himself somewhat when I considered all his actions throughout the novel, but he certainly wasn't my favourite character. I loved the take on such different views of heaven and hell and other key players in mythology and there were adorably charming details I enjoyed reading about, like wing colour and loss of feathers. All in all, it was an interesting read but not one of my favourites. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

"From time to time, I come across a book that, at first sight, might appear like many others, but after reading it I am amazed at the treasure within its pages. Martin Little, Resurrected is such a book for me. If you thought about heaven as the imaginary model of an ideal community, all peaceful, calm and organized, forget about it. The story is, in my opinion, a subtle satire focusing on the individual’s failure to integrate into a society to which he does not belong. Martin’s lighthearted journey, the twists and turns of the funny action-packed story makes it a pleasant read. The author displays an exquisite style while conjuring up a highly inventive plot. I savored every page of this deeply satisfying novel, fluently written with a natural narrative gift. I’m looking forward to reading more books from Ms. ELLA MEDLER."Was this review helpful?
