This customer review says what I have to say about the book. I was seriously considering NOT reading the other two books in the series until I read this review. I'll now give The Divine Invasion a chance.

I read all of Pepe's articles that I see on Strategic Culture but most or these were first published in Asia Times. Good articles that are recommended.

This book got some rave customer reviews and also got some that I agreed with. The God in this book is Herbert. The book simple gave him a platform to pontificate his philosophical thoughts in the guise of The Stolen Journals.

It is winter again here. The low this morning was 26° which is the first day in a week of forecast lows to be in the 20s. We could see a low in the upper teens next Tuesday, not good news. I have poor circulation in my hands and when the temperature goes below freezing the hands are painful even when wearing insulated gloves. The morning walks in these colder temperatures are going to be shorter for that reason. Maybe increase the noon and afternoon walk distances a little; or maybe not.

I have had an eventful week with the left eye cataract surgery on Monday then the first post op appointment on Tuesday. When I got back to the Park from that appointment I found that I had no 12v to the outlet where I recharge all my 12v watches and the E-collar for Erik.

I want to post the meds that Patches received last week so I have a record of what they were. When I got home with them I saw that the prescription labels on the bottles had someone else's name on them. That was not a big issue except for the Tranadol (a controlled substance). I could find myself in trouble with the law for possessing someone else’s prescription medication. I stopped at the vet yesterday and got the labels corrected.

I took Patches to All Creatures Veterinary Service yesterday fully prepared to have her put down. She has not been willing to climb the steps into Desperado for a couple of weeks now. A few days ago when I tried to pick her up she squealed in pain. Plus she has peed in her bed twice during the last 10 days and can no longer do our walks at the usual pace or distance. The vet there has given me some meds that she thinks will correct those issues and keep Patches alive for an unknown time yet. We will see.

I struggled to finish reading this book and the customer review expresses my thoughts. I disagree only about the character development. He develops character after character until it is like a clown car at the circus; they just keep coming and keep coming.
