The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy meets The Lovely Bones in this surrealist, sci-fi comedy. When Lorna is run over, she wakes in a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions.
It soon transpires that she is in Heaven, or on HVN. Because HVN is a lost, dysfunctional spaceship, and God the aging hippy captain. She seems to be there by accident …Or does God have a higher purpose after all?
After fancying something completely different to what I normally read I was pleasantly surprised to be asked to read and review this book. I was happy to see that it was a nice chunky book that I could really get my teeth into. The storyline is very inventive and I found myself warming to Lorna the main character. I think it is a well written story and I am glad I have read it. I will certainly be looking out for more of Charlie’s books in the future. A big thumbs up from me.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
