Book Review: I Am God by Giorgio Faletti


This was just an okay book. I’m not sure if it suffered from being translated from the original Italian but saying that could be a disservice to whoever did the translation.

The story isn’t anything special, the characters aren’t anything special, the plotting isn’t anything special and the ending isn’t anything special.

It’s a little funny because at the conclusion, the author himself refers to the absurdity of the whole story and I couldn’t help agreeing.

If you’re looking for a terrific thriller that moves along at a terrific pace and has a terrific ending, you won’t find it here.

However, it was an easy read and I don’t resent the time I spent reading it.

2 stars
