    " I liked the experimental way Allen uses voice to move the novel. It's really strong, funny writing and reading his work helped me with my own. That said, I was disappointed by the way it ends. (Not necessarily in story but in the ending structure.) "

    " I'd give this book 4 stars if the end wasn't as dry! It was definitely a funny story for those familiar with the black church. I even imagined certain things happening before I read them which at times made the story even funnier. I'd recommend it! "

    " This novel is not for everybody. The satire is sharp and the wit is downright wicked. Fans of Percival Everett will rejoice. I appreciated the bold plot and the complicated POV. I read the entire book on a six hour flight. "

    " Hilarious book, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. "
