My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Matthew Hughes has to be one of Canada’s most under-celebrated, under-appreciated writers. Easily capable of dancing between genres, in this sequel to The Damned Busters, Hughes unfolds a wry, witty tale, absolutely heretical, deliciously irreverent, that continues the concept of ‘is God making this up as He goes along?’
As always there are clearly-drawn characters that lift off the page, a pace that is steady and at times palpitating, and just when you think matters might become too serious he ambushes you with an insight that leaves you laughing out loud.
If you’re a fan of Terry Pratchett, allow me to introduce you to Matthew Hughes. You’re in for a rocketing good read.by
