Heck yeah!

Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go by Dale E. Basye

Have you ever wondered what happens to good kids who do bad things? I like the bad guys to suffer as much as the next guy, but I've always wondered what happens to a good person who makes a few mistakes. According to Basye, not all crimes are created equal, and Heck is the place to sort that stuff out.

While this book was definitely not written for the older folks, similar to Harry Potter it can really be enjoyed at any age. It is funny, quick witted and you don't have to be a Dante fan to get a kick out of this story (however, for those of you who are, this books gives the D man some props). It pokes fun at all of those boring "masterpieces" you read in school that talk about death. For heavens sake, if you pardon the pun, the main characters are named Milton and Marlo! Paradise Lost, anyone?

For all of you who think there should be an upside to afterlife, this book is for you. It is definitely not of this world.
