Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Canadian Read I love Mariam Toews and this is another good book by her. The characters in this book are memorable and quirky. The Mayor of the smallest town in Canada who thinks the prime minister is his real father and is trying to keep the towns population the same so he can win a visit from him on Canada day. It is a fun book full of wonderful unihibited personalities. I enjoyed it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why alienate Christians!? The story is not bad per se, BUT...I cannot understand why authors show such disregard for Christians by using the name Jesus to show anger or emotion by a character in the story. Why not use the name of some other religious leader once in a while? With so many other expletives [not that even they are necessary] why use the name of the King of Kings in such a disrespectful way? This starts happening well into the book and goes on from there. If you must - display your garbage on the first couple of pages so the reader will have an easier time discarding it! Shame of you Miriam Towes!
