Vacations from Hell

Repossessed A. M. Jenkins

Kiriel is a demon who's sick of Hell, so he steals a body and goes on vacation. The only problem is, he has a hard time being as self-absorbed as Shaun, the 17-year-old boy whose body he's inhabiting. So, his friends and family are a little worried. Plus, Kiriel knows that he's going to be in so much trouble when he gets caught, and that he'll get caught soon. But, what are they going to do? Send him to Hell?

Jenkins's Hell is heavily influenced by Milton and it wasn't as funny as I was expecting. While I did enjoy reading it, it's not a book that overly stayed with me. Hmmm... it's been awhile since I read this and all I can remember was "not as funny as I expected." Eh.

This seems to be one people either love or hate. Didn't do much for me; it's good to know I'm not alone.

Glad it's not just me! I wouldn't say I hated it. Overall, it just left me... whelmed (to quote Frankie Landau-Banks)
