Vonnegut derived, but original, funny and brilliant enough to be a fitting homage. And just possibly, more Kurt than Kurt in places - the philosophical matter is dense and dealt with clearly and with humour. Totally recommended. Read full review
Bo Fowler has taken the subject of religion and written a funny, heartwarming and thought provoking book on the need for and hopelessness of peoples need for acceptance.
By using a shopping trolley with no pre-defined bias as a narrator he takes us on a journey of hope and futility whilst incorporating a love story based on fanaticism, the human need to compete (the Pope v Archbishop of Canterbury) and friendship in a vacuous society.
Metaphysical betting is the art of offering odds on non-provable bets. Here it is about religion but it has echoes with short trading and the current banking crisis.
For an accessible and enjoyable read on a profound subject, this is the one to read.
Read it and be moved! Aloha!
