    Apocalypse Next Tuesday by David Safier is a light and fun novel with a nice balance between • faith, • the eternal fight between Good and Evil, • the significance of free will, • difficult situations and decisions, • lighthearted humor, • and a delicate romance. Marie is about to marry her fiancé, Sven, but she realizes that although she loves him, it is not enough for a lifetime. Marie leaves him at the altar, and moves back to her parents’ house, where she meets Jeshua who works there as a carpenter Apocalypse Next Tuesday by David Safier is a light and fun novel with a nice balance between • faith, • the eternal fight between Good and Evil, • the significance of free will, • difficult situations and decisions, • lighthearted humor, • and a delicate romance. Marie is about to marry her fiancé, Sven, but she realizes that although she loves him, it is not enough for a lifetime. Marie leaves him at the altar, and moves back to her parents’ house, where she meets Jeshua who works there as a carpenter. Jeshua is actually Jesus, and he is here on Earth to save humanity again. Marie slowly falls for him, and while she helps him to enjoy the modern world’s investments, like pizza, karaoke, and salsa dance, she has to face not only her pissed off and rude ex-fiancé, but her sister’s cancer, her father’s young, new girlfriend, her mother’s psychoanalyses and new love interest, who is actually the Archangel Gabriel, and finally the Last Judgement. The story is partly told from Marie’s point of view, in first person, partly from the viewpoints of the Archangel Gabriel and Satan, in third person. I really enjoyed the comic strips by Marie’s sister, Kate. Apocalypse Next Tuesday is a very entertaining read with thought-provoking ideas, and lots of situation comedy.

    Review first published on BookLikes: http://brokentune.booklikes.com/post/...- Sometimes, just sometimes, I need a book that offers pure escapism - without pretending to be anything other than a diversion.

Not very deep or challenging or novel - just plain cozy and preferably funny. David Safier's books are just that - simple fun. So, even though I have little patience for romance novels or religious fiction it was hard not to like the story of thirty-five year old Marie who is jilting her fiance at the altar only to fall for the carpenter repairing her dad's roof. No, the plot is not what is seems. If I had to summarise the book I would say it is Good Omens but featuring Bridget Jones and told with the social criticism of Dogma. This is why I liked it so much. N.B. I read the German edition of the book. It was published in English as Apocalypse Next Tuesday, but as with Safier's first book Bad Karma I am not sure that the humor would work well in translation.

    It started out strong, but I did t enjoy the last third of the book. The protagonist became trope of herself and the humor got tired. It was funny and a quick read.

    Fundamentally flawed and theologically knotty but charming all the same. Bridget Jones meets The Shack. I’m still an unrepentant atheist, though.

    Review originally posted to my blog: http://www.pagetostagereviews.com/201... Admittedly I wasn't aware of this novel before I was kindly contacted by the publisher with the question if I would like a copy for review, but when I hit the line in the above blurb that described Satan as a dead-ringer for George Clooney I was sold. So as soon as the now hotly anticipated novel made its way into my hands, I started reading it and I didn't stop until I was finished.

Admittedly I wasn't aware of this novel before I was kindly contacted by the publisher with the question if I would like a copy for review, but when I hit the line in the above blurb that described Satan as a dead-ringer for George Clooney I was sold. So as soon as the now hotly anticipated novel made its way into my hands, I started reading it and I didn't stop until I was finished. Partly because it was short, but mainly because it was that good. Apocalypse Next Tuesday takes characters from religion and propels them into contemporary times, inexplicably powers and all, and makes it work. You don't have to be a religious expert to understand what is going on though. Hints back to biblical times and fables referenced within the novel are all explained, so even the most atheistic of readers will not get confused by a bush suddenly bursting into flames (to name but one example). And despite the heavy religious theme running throughout the story (I say 'despite' because it could wrongly give prospective readers the impression that this is a bit of dry reading), this novel is very, very funny. With Satan favouring his looks as either George Clooney or Alicia Keys, and God making an appearance in the form of Emma Thompson serving a cup of tea whilst in an English country house (the epitome of Britishness), you know you're in for a humorous ride. Another reason why I really enjoyed this is because it was such a quick read. I finished it in about two hours, which made it a welcome change from the daunting bulky novels weighing down my to-read pile. It also makes it ideal if you want to take a brief break from such an intense and vast volume by turning to a lighter book (literally and figuratively). The language used is simplistic, which added to the novel being an easy read, and with the story interspersed with newspaper style comics you'd almost assume this is a children's book. Though filled with grown-up themes and prone to taking the mickey out of religion, this is very much a novel aimed at adults. Apocalypse Next Tuesday is one of the most bizarre yet strangely alluring books I've ever read. Don't let the fantastical take on the biblical story fool you into thinking that this is just a wild ride on a satirical roller-coaster, because there is also an incredibly good story within the novel. It's about love, family and mortality just as much as it is about fancying a hot carpenter who looks like a Bee Gee and can walk on water.

    The good part is easy to explain: I had a couple of laughs now and then. It is the rest of the book that fails in every possible sense. The book is some sort of "Twighlight" meets "Bridget Jones" meets the Book of Revelations. It seems an unlikely combination and certainly the outcome is a disaster. I am not going to make a detailed review because it is just not worth the pain, but I would like to comment the following: *SPOILERS* Take a boy and a girl.

The book is some sort of "Twighlight" meets "Bridget Jones" meets the Book of Revelations. It seems an unlikely combination and certainly the outcome is a disaster. I am not going to make a detailed review because it is just not worth the pain, but I would like to comment the following: *SPOILERS* Take a boy and a girl. The girl is thirty, chubby, not too beautiful, definitely not sophisticated nor cultivated and hasn`t accomplished much in life because she basically hasn`t tried. The boy is the male equivalent of hers: he is a loser who can`t pick up girls and desperately clinges to our female protagonist because he knows he doesn`t have more options. Now get this: the girl leaves the boy in the middle of their wedding, then hides in her father`s house, then Jesus (who is some sort of smoking-hot-and-undying superman) comes to repair her roof and they both fall in love. The boy, meanwhile, meets the devil himself and turns into one of the four horsemen of the Apocallypse because you see, he is so bitter against women. Now we learn that the girl dumped him it not because she is an inmature moron, it`s because she perceived his inner evil somehow. Someone explain it to me. Just like Bridget Jones and Twighlight, this is some sort of boost for female egos: "Honey, you are the best, if you don`t notice it`s only because you are too modest. Men are blind and pigs not to see, if charming prince came here he would alight his white horse and ask you to marry him". Well, no. If you feel you are a bit overweight, a bit ignorant and a bit uninteresting, you know, maybe you ARE, after all. You don`t deserve George Clooney or Jesus in flesh, in fact you don`t deserve anything, you have to EARN things. And yeah, it goes without saying that failed males don`t get any ego boost. They are, you know, "losers" i.e. unworthy even of pity. This is certainly a female-oriented culture. And I don`t like it.

    Satan is George Clooney. The Angel Gabriel is an old priest. Jesus is a Carpenter (That's not really new). And Death is..... This is a genuinely funny book! The humour in the book is witty and hilarious, something I wasn't expecting from a German! (I know, stereotypical statement. I apologise) You don't really see books about Romance and Love, with all the awkwardness that comes with it, combined with the idea that the world is going to end, the horsemen will ride across the earth and the people o Satan is George Clooney. The Angel Gabriel is an old priest. Jesus is a Carpenter (That's not really new). And Death is..... This is a genuinely funny book! The humour in the book is witty and hilarious, something I wasn't expecting from a German! (I know, stereotypical statement. I apologise) You don't really see books about Romance and Love, with all the awkwardness that comes with it, combined with the idea that the world is going to end, the horsemen will ride across the earth and the people on earth shall be judged. Underneath the hilarious humour and the overtly Christian motifs, this is a novel that deals with the concepts of Free-will vs Destiny, Good and Evil, Faith, Life (In all it's complicated forms) and Death. The Basic story is a middle-ish age woman leaves her fiancée at the alter, because she realises she doesn't love him. Only for a few days later to fall in love with Jesus. She tries to deal with woo-ing Jesus, living at home with her Dad and newly married step-mother (who's younger than her), her sharp witted sister, her mother, the angel Gabriel as her priest and her (now vengeful) ex-fiancée who does go a bit Norman Bates with her at point. Oh, and the Apocalypse is scheduled to happen. The novel frequently swaps from the Marie (the narrators) perspective to that of the "supernatural" perspective. This is mainly split between Gabriel's view to that of Satan. All while in-dispersed with cartoon drawn by the narrators sister. I really enjoyed this book. It's humorous, engaging and does cause you to think about the subjects raised through the discussions within the book.

    Marie's life is not going as she planned. Now in her mid-thirties and working a dead-end job in the small German town of Malente, she finds herself back living with her dad after leaving the only man who will probably ever want to marry her at the altar. On top of that her mum has hooked up with the local Reverend and her dad has fallen in love with a 25-year old internet bride from Belarus. Just as she is resigning herself to remaining in her childhood room for the rest of her days the calm, ki Marie's life is not going as she planned. Now in her mid-thirties and working a dead-end job in the small German town of Malente, she finds herself back living with her dad after leaving the only man who will probably ever want to marry her at the altar. On top of that her mum has hooked up with the local Reverend and her dad has fallen in love with a 25-year old internet bride from Belarus. Just as she is resigning herself to remaining in her childhood room for the rest of her days the calm, kind and very handsome Joshua walks into her life. Little does she know that her new crush is actually Jesus and he is on a divine mission before the Judgement Day Armageddon, which is scheduled for next week. Meanwhile Satan, disguised as George Clooney, is busy recruiting the four horsemen of the apocalypse and he soon discovers the small town has a surprising amount of suitable candidates. Will Marie be able to get a date with the hunky carpenter before the end of the world or will God scupper her plans? This is a highly imaginative and very funny story from the popular German writer David Safier. It has been perfectly translated and the author's dry humour jumps out from every page. The flawed protagonist is endearing, exacerbating and completely believable, even when dealing with unbelievable situations. A comedic look at human relationships, life values and love that will leave you smiling.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I read the English version of this book, titled "Apocalypse Next Tuesday". Apocalypse Next Tuesday/Jesus Loves Me, was not the book I expected. I thought that the Apocalypse may have played a bigger element to the story than it actually did. But instead it was invested more in a very thorough and well planned build up than the actual event itself. (I'll admit it, I was looking forward to a little hell fire).

But overall I enjoyed the style and direction of the book, and felt invested in the characters and their stories. Even the more biblical elements. The sketches that were in my version of the novel were lovely just to break up the text a little. Marie’s relationships with the other characters were definitely what made me want to read this story, I loved how her family were written and was invested in her interactions with Joshua/Jesus. My reasoning for only giving it 3 stars is the fact that it took me a long time to read, despite not being a really large book. So it didn’t completely hook me in the way some novels do.

    Such a great read! I love Safier's books, they are fun and easy to read, they play with our references and pre-conceived ideas, and the plot is always cenetered around some unbelievable situation, such as this. The bridget-jones-character Marie is not the typical heroine, and everyone seems to notice that, up until Jesus (Joshua) himself finds her a really interesting company. This leads to a fun and heart-breaking adventure and many discoveries about love in general. Contrary to what it may see Such a great read!

Contrary to what it may seem, this book is not religious, at the same time, it's not herectic either, it plays with biblical references, but also take the true meaning of them very seriously. The interventions were great, with little dialogues from Star Trek which fitted the situation at hand, and comic strips made by Marie's sister, Kata, one of the best characters ever. The ending was completely unexpected, running away from clichés. I highly recommend it for everyone who doesn't take themselves too seriously.

In this new book, Jesus Loves Me, Safier has the same comic and sometimes surreal style of the previous book.

    I really liked this book. It made me think about Jesus as the human that he was. And it helped me to better understand what he gave up for us. Not only did he die for us, but he also accepted that he couldn't fall in love, because his love is meant for everybody. I loved how human David Safier depicted Jesus. What I didn't like is that some details were incosequential. Like, why didn't Jesus know what a phone was? That implies that he's not watching over us and doesn't know what's happening on e I really liked this book. It made me think about Jesus as the human that he was.

    Enough factoids about fundamentalist Christianity and knowledge of Gnostic texts and superfluous legends with some mix of details from Jesus Christ Superstar to seem edgy; the plot falls flat and predictable when the author deviates little from the biblical text except to be provocative. Ultimately, the gimmick wears off quickly and the plot leaves something to be desired. I never really cared about any of the characters and his female character read like someone straight out of Twilight.

    What a witty and hilarious story! Definitely, David Safier's got a talent for comedy. Bringing Jesus as one of the main characters into what would look like a conventional romantic story is pretty original. I couldn't help laughing at so many passages.

    This was OK, not more not less. I read it all the way through but I didn't really connect with the characters and didn't really care enough about them but it killed a few pleasant hours. I do wonder if my English kindle version missed some bits since other reviewers mentioned events that I didn't read about. This was OK, not more not less.
