Messiah: A Novel Messiah: A Novel by Andrei Codrescu

My review


rating: 3 of 5 stars
I can’t get over how the jacket picture nowhere near fit the image of Andrei I had in my head based on the essays he reads on NPR.
The story will twist your brain as to how you have perceived any versions of the rapture or the coming of a messiah… it is hard to swallow and yet very revealing on so many ways about perceptions in our current culture…
I also get the feeling he tries the Eco route of obscure sources of knowledge, and doesn’t quite make it.

  1. No Rob, that is the cover… I posted a pic of Andrei/Borat on FB for you.
    You might find this book interesting, not sure if you would like it… but you would understand the references in it to get the gist of the underlying message.
