Maybe my expectations were too high. Is it possible I failed as a reader? Well maybe, but the one thing I can not abide is a book to be BORING. The book had some wonderful lines, but the chatterbox, whiny, nagging voice of Lucifer took all the sparkle out of what should have been a slam dunk wonderful novel. I will end with a dash of Duncan getting it right.

I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan. History needs a re-write when Satan sells his script. Lucifer offers an alternative version of history. Much of this is both clever and challenging, such as his concept of Old and New Time (pre- and post-Creation), his relationship with Christ, whom he calls Arthur (shades of TH White?), and his insistence that it was boredom rather than pride that prompted his rebellion. He also offers a welcome attack on the sexual hypocrisy and repression of the Church. The prevailing tone is, however, unduly flippant. Facetiousness and bathos define the book which, while sizzling with mephitic energy, comes as a disappointment after the powerful examination of rape in Duncan's recent Love Remains. By the end of the novel, one wishes for a little less of Lucifer and a little more of Declan Gunn. Independent culture newsletter.

A fiendishly sharp, intelligent examination of modern human life that is as funny as hell (The Times, London). The end is nigh and the Prince of Darkness has just been offered one hell of a deal: reentry into Heaven for eternity-if he can live out a well-behaved life in a human body on earth. Startlingly witty, original and beautifully written (Good Book Guide). Duncan’s witty and perverse, yet somehow life-affirming, Lucifer is powerful indeed.
