It makes us feel better. During our drive back to Jackson, Hope reminded me, the young graduate student, that our testimonies may not have been in vain, that we may have opened a few minds to a different idea.

Judith Landry Translator. Set in a not-too-distant future, and moving between Rome and Amsterdam, God's Dog is a detective novel unlike any you have read before. It is the eve of Pope Benedict XVIII's canonisation and Domingo Salazar, a Haitian orphan and now a Vatican secret agent, is hellbent on defeating the Angels of Death, pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia dissidents who are undermining the Set in a not-too-distant future, and moving between Rome and Amsterdam, God's Dog is a detective novel unlike any you have read before.
It is the eve of Pope Benedict XVIII's canonisation and Domingo Salazar, a Haitian orphan and now a Vatican secret agent, is hellbent on defeating the Angels of Death, pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia dissidents who are undermining the Pope's authority. But as Salazar closes in on the cell he finds his life turned upside down.
Suddenly it is Salazar and his closest friend Guntur who are under suspicion of sabotaging the administration. Their concept for a globalised religion called Bible-Koranism has upset the Church and they are in grave danger, as is Guntur's infamous Swahili-speaking chimpanzee Django.

The alternative world that's posited here is terrific, and I'd've loved it if I'd been more in that world while the action of the thriller was thrilling me. In summation, I gave the book all the stars for a terrific idea, and took the others off for frustrating lapses of world-building and action. Peccato, mm? I bought this because it was recommended by Nick Lezard in the Guardian. I know you can't judge a book by its cover but when it arrived this had a distinctly 'self-published' feel. The typeface on the front looks amateurish and is set off-centre.
The cover price of 9. Books like this don't usually merit reviews in national newspapers so I though the contents would be really special. But I wasn't grabbed either by the character, the prose or the plotting. It I bought this because it was recommended by Nick Lezard in the Guardian. It all seemed a bit rushed - patched together.
Nick Lezard finished his review by saying that the book had 'the odd stiff review from the more religiously inclined press'. In my opinion, a negative response is merited purely on the usual literary criteria. Lezard continues, 'The good news is that this is the first of a series, and the second has already been written. Heretic that I am, I can't wait. Nov 24, Marianne rated it really liked it. But, with Easter fast approaching, Salazar is recalled to Rome by his boss known to him only as The Vicar to track down an enemy of the Vatican.
Before long, a surprised Salazar finds himself tranquillised, hospitalised, kidnapped, and stealing from a poor-box in a desperate bid to save the Pope. Set in a futuristic Italian theocracy, this somewhat tongue-in-cheek novel touches on euthanasia, abortion, the teaching of Creationism, guardian angels, compulsory pelvic scans at border crossings, animal souls and the power of prayer to saints.
E lo stesso avvenne al mio compagno di banco Valeriano Tisanardi, colpito in volto dal perfido Don Paolino, tanto basso di statura quanto violento, che gli fece sanguinare il naso. C'entra eccome, e ve lo spiego.
