A Little Bit Twisted

A Reader's Respite has often pondered our perceptions of reality. Mostly, we admit, this kind of pondering often follows a day that we're convinced was some sort of bad dream. But nevertheless, we do occasionally wonder.

So does author Commander Pants (ha!). At least he does in his a-little-bit-twisted novel, Whom God Would Destroy, the quirky story of several mental patients (actually, out-patients, but we're splitting hairs here) and their individual realities. What if they are right?

Who's to say there aren't space aliens obsessed with Big Macs controlling our thoughts and deeds? And why should any of us have to settle for only one personality? In this novel, having multiple personalities is much more fun.

But funny hi-jinks aside, we found a rather poignant message embedded in the story: Happiness may well be found in making other people happy. Simple. Easy. Okay, okay...so that particular message was imparted by a returned-to-Earth-Jesus who is having fun manipulating us sheep-like mortals. But we liked it nonetheless.


Okay, think you're twisted enough for this book? If so, leave us a comment and on October 25th we'll announce one random winner! That's all there is to it.
