Wow. This book sounds fascinating, and not too far from the truth as far as the elites go. They try to kill God daily. I hate the upside down cross on the cover, but then I guess, given the title, it's only fitting. My curiosity has definitely been piqued.

Wow. This sounds like and interesting book. I kinda envy writers who can write a story that
involves viewing life from an entirely new perspective.
I always feel these people, these writers, are above and beyond normal humanity! LOL

Thanks for the insightful review.
I wasn't sure at first if this would be something I would be interested in. However, with the review and descriptions of the points across time on a mission to kill God, I became very interested!
Looking forward to reading this book soon!

Much as I like historical narratives, the complex mix of speculative sci-fi in Save the Last Bullet for God, takes JT Alblood's book outside my reading preference, for now.

This book sounds like just my sort of story. Though how can you have a mission to kill god, when he doesn't exist, just a mass delusion.

Shame this one isn't free, I would have liked to read it.

A world filled with secrets and conspiracies? I've seen some movies with this storyline, always intriguing but never satisfying. But it seems this author nailed this one. I can grasp his idea to expand the reader's perception of the world using this book. Thanks for the review!

Wow! Sounds one great book. What took my interest the most was the questioning of the reality in life. The intellectual thinking that was involved, including the use of real events that was very inspiring.
Actually this reviewer has done a great job in this fascinating review. It drove my interest to read this book first hand. One brilliant job well done!

From the sample and also the reviewer's description, it definitely sounds like this is an "outside of the box" story. I am reminded of Robert Anton's The Illuminati Trilogy. It is also weird in places, bounces between time periods and has a connection to WWII. Thanks for the well written review.
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.

I must admit I was a bit skeptical about the book when I saw the title. I was almost certain I would not like it. But after reading your review I feel it will be worth reading. Thanks for the wonderful review.

This review is very thorough in covering all imperative aspects of a review. Addressing the reader's desired intellect and potentially perceived classification hurdles is helpful in opening doors to audiences. I'm looking for a new sci-fi for my son-in-law and I'll definitely be buying this one!
