The Next Queen of Heaven: A Novel

by Gregory Maguire

HarperCollins | October 5, 2010 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Next Queen of Heaven: A Novel is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.

With the new millennium approaching, the eccentric town of Thebes grows even stranger. Mrs. Leontina Scales begins speaking in tongues after being clocked by a Catholic statuette. Her daughter, Tabitha, and her sons scheme to save their mother or surrender her to Jesus—whatever comes first. Meanwhile, choir director Jeremy Carr, caught between lust and ambition, fumbles his way toward Y2K. The ancient Sisters of the Sorrowful Mysteries join with a gay singing group. The Radical Radiants battle the Catholics. A Christmas pageant goes horribly awry. And a child is born.

Only a modern master like Gregory Maguire could spin a tale as frantic, funny, and farcical as The Next Queen of Heaven.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only got 40 pages It may have gotten better, but if a book hasn't captured my interest within 40 pages, it probably isn't going to. I have read all of Gregory Maguire's other novels and have enjoyed them all. I knew this one was different, and I'm open to authors trying out new things, but this felt like a bad attempt to copy Christopher Moore's style, but without the humor. The first 40 pages were all I read, and I found them to be a jumble of story lines with absolutely no flow. I could not get into this, but I tip my hat to anyone else who can and enjoys it. Please feel free to comment, maybe I'm missing something big!
