Alex Webster and the Gods takes you on a mythical, mind-bending journey, as Jupiter, the superstar Roman God, decides the timing is right to emerge from retirement and attempt a comeback.
Incarnated as a businessman with an MBA from Harvard, J.J. "Jupiter" Jones�s immediate goal is to acquire a global corporation that will help him establish a newworldly empire. As a result, J.J. needs an accomplished management consultant and finds one in Alex Webster. But problems soon emerge that prove J.J.�s comeback will be more challenging than he originally predicted. After 2000 years, J.J. and his fellow gods are a little rusty. Cupid becomes known at a Savannah dance club as Dr. Love, and authorities begin investigating him on suspicion of dispersing date-rape drugs. On the business front, the price of a successful merger is an uneasy alliance with Gerry Schilling, one of the most successful and ruthless CEOs of all time. Schilling wants only one thing - to get rid of J.J.
J.J.�s courtship with a voluptuous intern sets off a chain of events that threatens the very survival of his bold venture.

When I first started reading this book, I couldn't begin to fathom where the story was going, but I was intrigued enough to want to continue. As I got further into the book, I found myself not wanting to put it down. The character development started off slowly, but by the end, I felt very attached to many of them - 'Argy' & 'Cupid' were my particular favourites. Even the most unlikeable characters were likeable in the sense that you really felt that you knew them personally and wanted to see them 'crash and burn'. Although I was sorry to finish the book, I was completely satisfied by the ending. There was nothing left unresolved, and yet, I could imagine a sequel. I am not usually a fan of science fiction or fantasy, so I'm not sure what category this book fits into, but I would put this book in the same category as John Wyndham's The Chrysalids. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
