Book Review: Everybody’s Daughter by Michael John Sullivan

My Review
0 of 5 stars

“Finished” July 13, 2013

I say finished in quotes because I got about 100 pages in and really just wanted the book done so I skipped pages, read chapter here and there and read the end and called is a mercy killing.

This was an awful book. You just can’t write a fiction that involves time travel and a subplot to the New Testament. I was totally fine with the concept of time-traveling and watching Jesus’ life, but not in meeting him and getting chummy.

I found the book to be offensive. The notes say that the author incorporates his own childhood into the stories he writes; a modern Medici. At its best it’s egotistical at worst sacrilegious. I didn’t really read the whole book and I won’t be reading any of the other titles encouraged in the notes at the end.

I know what book not to read - although I don't think i'd be able to get through the back cover of that one - you are a good woman to read as much as you did!
