God is Dead

Rating
'[A] stoic poignancy reminiscent of Raymond Carver ...God Is Dead is a heady cocktail of ideas ...Currie has proved he can write and write well' Guardian God - or Sora, as she's called - has come to earth to experience its conflicts first hand, but adopting a human form also means assuming human frailty and mortality, and when Sora's death - and her true identity - is discovered, the world is immediately and irrevocably changed. Waves of panic, civil unrest and mass suicide sweep the globe; young men take the future into their own hands, armies go to war over fate versus free will, and parents - in the absence of an alternative, and with nothing else to do on a Sunday - turn their children into objects of worship. God is Dead is truly - and terrifyingly - original; blasphemous and heretical, it's an exceptional debut and a remarkable read. 'From its stark title to its startling final page, Ron Currie's novel packs one tight punch of fresh ideas in prose so smart it smarts ...As a satirist, Currie has only bad news to impart but, as a devotee of Kurt Vonnegut, he does it with such humour, you'll barely notice' Telegraph 'As smart and addictive as any debut novel you're likely to pick up this year . ..'

Reviews

a Currieas strength rests in his ability to focus humanityas conundrums on the smallest physical particles. The truth he presents is that the world has become absurd; he is merely delivering a steady-cam view.a a"Los Angeles Times" a [A] cavalierly ambitious debut . . . with talking dogs, text messageahappy teenagers, and end-of-day shenanigans. Like Kurt Vonnegut, he seems to understand that in the face of grim and grave concerns, humor is a more powerful salt than screed.a aJohn Freeman, "San Francisco Chronicle"
