Book synopsis (The back of the book says)
Something is about to go wrong. Very wrong. What do you expect if the Supreme Being decides to get away from it all for a few days, leaving his naturally inquisitive son to look after the cosmic balance of things? A minor hiccup with a human soul and before you know it you're on the road to chaos.A gag about God regarding the pursuit of happiness as something to be done with a fly-swatter resulted in this book.
Reviews of this book
After reading this book Phil Garnetts wrote this
God and Jay Christ have decided to take a break and go on a fishing trip leaving Kevin, God's younger son in charge. The only trouble is that Kevin's a teenager who decides to have play on Mainframe, God's computer, but ends up screwing things up... Some humans find that they have swapped places with paintings, machines, a Duke of Hell and a Lemming.
After reading this book Thom Marrion wrote this
I was quite delighted to find this in paperback at the Munich airport. Tom Holt is one of my favorite authors, but for some reason the most recent book that I've ever found here in America is Ye Gods. Sucks to be me. There's this whole bibliography I knew nothing about that made me want to go to London and rob a bookstore. Anyway.
