 Deep and thoughtful

A dark and darkly funny tale of 2 sociopaths selling Bibles during the Great Depression. It reminded me of other works, like The Sister Brothers or early Coen Brothers in style, not content. If you like dark tales read it.

 Haunting and weird and funny

This is a very haunting story about two guys during the Depression who go around selling Bibles and murdering people. If that sounds weird, it is, but not when you get to know who they are and what they think they are doing. It's also a funny sort of story, in a black humor way, because the way they talk reminded me of the two guys in Pulp Fiction. I liked it a lot. [by Mr. Pither]


 Funny, dark and weirdly comic

During the Great Depression two odd fellows, who may or may not be brothers, travel the Midwest selling Bibles and saving souls. They feel they are doing God's work by immediately killing people after they are saved, when they are in a "pure spirit," to ensure they go directly to heaven. Weird. Until you realize that what they view as being God's angels is viewed by the rest of the world as two psychopaths on a murder spree. A determined BOI (pre-FBI) agent named Pyle is hot on their trail despite having little to go on. It is a dark and twisted genre-bending comic thriller that had me riveted until the bloody end. [by Derek Christian]
