Sitzbook: "The Dirty Parts of the Bible" By Sam Torode

This will be a short review. I actually only got this book because it turned out to be free on the Kindle. I have Amazon Prime, so I can borrow one book from their "Lending Library" for free every month. This book had good reviews so I decided to check it out; as it turned out, it was free free, and it didn't even count towards my monthly book rental. So that was cool.

The story itself is also cool. I guess it follows a Biblical story (I seem to have a lot of these religious-sounding books this year, for some reason), but it takes place in the 1930s. It was pretty entertaining and well-written, and it was generally entertaining. It didn't especially light a fire under my ass, though, especially when the story got taken to Texas. But that's just how stories go sometimes.

Oh, and it's not actually dirty. It's very arguable that this blog is dirtier in almost any given aspect of dirtiness. Just as a disclaimer.

In any case, I liked it, especially at $0.00. It's very difficult to criticize any book at that price. If you're interested, you can check out the preview in the video above. I hadn't actually known that they were making trailers/previews for books these days until I saw one for The Visible Man, the great Chuck Klosterman book I read last year. Here's that trailer, in case you're interested (I'd also definitely recommend the book):

So, that's it for now. Thanks for reading!
