Glen Duncan's account of Lucifer's second chance is one of the most creative books I have ever read! From Lucifer's discovery of what it means to be human to his bad behavior on earth, the writer makes you believe this really is Lucifer's story. At times a poignant picture of the human existence, other times somewhat horrifying (it IS Lucifer, you know), most of the time this book is laugh-out-loud hilarious. One of the best reads ever!

I loved this book.

Guys, he's the DEVIL.. of course he's going to be a pretentious, long winded and egotistical dick..a charismatic jerk but still a jerk. He's the MorningStar, God's favorite angel pre-fall. I enjoyed how the guy is just out of his mind with random thoughts and witty asides to everything,
I think if you're a fan of dark satire you'll love this book. If you're a member of a Wrath of God type of church. Please, do yourself a favor.. pass on this book. I'm a fan of the idea that God is Love and I don't see anything wrong with this book. F

I love this book.
Some previous reviewers had a hard time with the language: the narrator frequently apologizes for going on tangents, but I found it to be endearing. Duncan was able to simultaneously create a character that was both the epitome of evil but also very, very human. You are charmed by his charismatic qualities and in the same page will be in tears over his indifference to stealing, drugs, the Spanish Inquisition, Nazis, all things he started/encouraged to get you to turn away from God. There is a definite love/hate there for me, the reader, when he gets flustered reminding you that he has always been there for you. This has joined my (ever growing) list of favorite books.
PS. Supposed to be a movie with Daniel Craig as Lucifer and Ewan McGregor as Gunn.

I have to hand it to this author: He actually made one of the most reviled characters in known history likeable. The quick wit and quirky style made this book really enjoyable!

I am about as lapsed a Catholic as possible, but this was even too much for me.

Eugh, I personally can't get past the first chapter without wanting to throw this book across the room and never look at it again. Clearly Duncan is a very good writer, but I just can't help but be irritated by the inner monologue of the main character. Maybe someday not in the near future I'll give this book another chance.
