    One thought on “The Second Coming”

    1. This book is very, very funny It is not a literary masterpiece and has lots of flaws It will also offend many many people It will particularly offend religious fundamentalists especially Christian ones and those who are racist and homophobic Oh, and if you are offended by swearing and casual drug use, you may also have problems with it When I say swearing, well it s not the odd damn and blast, just a little stronger The premise is quite simple God goes for a weeks fishing in the 17th Century and [...]

    2. Many moons ago I read Kill Your Friends and I loved it, so I am not sure why it took me so long to read another book by John Niven however I have now, and I am very glad that I finally got round to it.If you re religious, and easily offended, then avoid this book If you dislike profanity then avoid this book Conversely, if you enjoy perceptive humour that nails many a sacred cow, and that simultaneously manages to be perceptive, quietly profound, compelling, original, amusing and outrageous then [...]

    3. E fondamentalmente una cretinata, ma, a suo modo, una cretinata simpatica E qualche cartuccia niente male la mette anche a segno, tutto sommato Fate i bravi , vah, perch , a quanto pare, quel malato di protagonismo che era Mos le ha sparate davvero grosse Dio intendeva tutt altro Infatti, poi, gli ha fatto un culo cos Letteratura Quella s era roba buona Bello che l avessero inventata.

    4. A VOLTE RITORNOEcco il Ges che tutti vogliono John Niven, se solo non avesse questo cognome dalle riminiscenze cos hollywoodiane, che il Signore lo abbia in gloria, ha scritto un testo tra i pi fantastici che abbia letto negli ultimi anni E dire che leggo un centinaio di libri l anno, 10 pi , 10 meno Sa miscelare misticismo e populismo, spiritualit e bassezze, musica e letteratura, catarsi e miseria, ecologismo e riciclismo, rivincita e demagogia, guerra e a, depressione e lieto fine nelle dosi [...]

    5. L inizio non stato dei migliori una parodia che ha il suo punto forte nel personaggio di Dio che dice parolacce a tutto spiano e non disdegna le canne Ho immaginato una lettura noiosa con toni eccessivamente sopra le righe Invece, mi sono trovata coinvolta nella storia di Ges Cristo e del suo entourage di emarginati intendiamoci nessuna rivelazione e una trama che si svolge come da copione, ma scorrevole e rilassante se credessi che esistono libri da ombrellone e libri per tutto il resto dell an [...]

    6. God comes back from his fishing holiday to find that since he s been gone a few days in Heaven but centuries on Earth things have gone badly Looking at what he s missed, He particularly doesn t like the 20th century God makes up his mind to send Jesus back down to Earth to remind everyone of his one and only rule Be Nice a rule that Moses decided to ignore and come up with 10 of his own Down on Earth, Jesus is 31 years old, in a band, something of a stoner, and being nice to everyone And then on [...]

    7. I can t praise this book highly enough The blurb says that around the time of the Renaissance God takes a week off and goes on holiday, since everything on earth is going swimmingly When he gets back, earth time running differently to heaven time Einstein was right , it s the early 21st century and, to put it bluntly, everything has gone to ratshit.So, God decides to send his son back to teach mankind how they should be livingMy husband read this a while back and told me to read it because you l [...]

    8. There is a scene halfway through this book where JC rips into a cover of Springsteen s Born to Run It is a manic delight to read, and I m sure that John Niven took great pleasure in writing it Niven, a journalist who worked in the music industry, is Scottish, and his nationality is very much in evidence here in this anarchic, profane and undoubtedly hugely controversial story of Jesus Christ s return to Earth Sent by his father, horrified by what people had done in his name , JC plays into the h [...]

    9. A woman saw me reading this book albeit with a different cover and asked me if I was reading a book about Jesus Yeeeees, I replied hesitantly Where can I buy it she pushed I told her , not disclosing that I got it from because this will never, ever, ever be published in America.And it s our loss.What you need to know is the Christians have it all wrong Moses was an egotist who made up the Ten Commandments himself All God wanted to say was just be nice God LOVES gays He also loves pot, booze, and [...]

    10. se torno mi raccomando Fate i bravi dissacratorio e divertente questo romanzo si legge d un fiato non richiede niente altro che una mente aperta e la voglia di sdrammatizzare ma in cambio d un sorriso che si allarga a mano mano che scopriamo che non come ci avevano insegnato che Dio vuole che noi ci comportiamo.mma il Suo comandamento era UNO solo Fate i Bravi quindi Dio ritorna da una vacanza e si trova di fronte al mondo cos come lo abbiamo ridotto le guerre di religione lo lasciano basito l o [...]

    11. Gesellschaftskritik verpackt in einer absurden Geschichte ist eigentlich genau mein Ding, doch mag ich es mehr, wenn diese Kritik dann unterschwellig und subtiler ge u ert wird In Gott bewahre fliegen einem die Fehler der Gesellschaft nur so um die Ohren und der Autor kann einfach nicht anders, als seinen Frust ber alles was in der Welt so schief l uft rauszulassen Das kann man m gen, muss man aber nicht Allerdings erz hlt John Niven dies in einer sehr unterhaltsamen und etwas anst igen Geschich [...]

    12. Our times are truly troubled with war, genocide, disease, and hate lurking around every corner In The Second Coming , God sees that everything is screwed up after returning from a short vacation After short deliberation, he decides to use the only cure for the problem He sends Jesus back in Now, the returned savior must brave life as a struggling musician, whilst simply getting people to Be nice Seeing it as a good chance to spread his message, Jesus decides to enter the competition American Pop [...]

    13. This was close to great It was mostly fun to read, well written and it had some crude humor and quite obvious twists of Christian theology And that was my main problem with this book It is right in your face No subtlety, no not so obvious sarcasm or irony It was all there, right in the open The idea was actually better, than the plot in the end What would Jesus do, if he came back to earth Not exactly a fresh and original idea And mixing that with having him apply for a talent scouting TV show N [...]

    14. Anche le recensioni positive lo definiscono dissacrante e ci mi d molto da riflettere su cosa la gente consideri sacro Magari un libro politicamente scorretto, ma che si fotta il politicamente corretto Certo, i cattolici non ci fanno una bella figura, ma purtroppo quasi ogni giorno ho modo di constatare che il presunto scimmiottamento che ne fa il libro dolorosamente vicino alla realt di molti praticanti praticoni.Io un Ges cos , che raccatta da strada il primo barbone che vede, che se ne sbatte [...]

    15. Not really something you d call fine literature, but a rockin good time, with its heart in place and many enough spikes and arrows directed in all the right directions Plus some real poignancy towards the end Good enough to make me want to check you Kill Your Friends , Niven s first novel.

    16. Mmmmm avevo iniziato questo libro due settimane fa pensando che l avrei finito in pochissimi giorni invece a circa met libro ha iniziato a stufarmi mi spiego meglio.L idea poteva anche essere bella, e lo , ma dopo un po noiosetto Ok che Dio, Ges e tutti gli angeli e i santi sono dei fricchettoni, ma l ho trovato un po troppo volgarotto Alcuni personaggi che entrano in scena in seguito giro di parole per non spoilerare sono troppo volgari Non che ci sia scritto chiss che parolaccia ma stiamo parl [...]

    17. 2,5 A volte ritorno di Niven ha come protagonista un Ges molto alternativo fan di Hendrix, ribelle, non si risparmia qualche parolaccia, ha una faccia tosta e un anima semplice e innocente che lo porta ad agire sempre per il bene comune Niven ha creato un personaggio buono ma statico, un po piatto scelta giustificabile se i caratteri dei personaggi secondari spiccassero di pi per portare un po di pepe nella storia Solo la personalit di Dio soddisfacente e ben inquadrata.Purtroppo nemmeno lo stil [...]

    18. If somebody asks me for a fun, smart, controversial novel I never hesitate This is my suggestion and I have yet to find something better Niven puts your beliefs upside down and in his usual irreverent style show the inner side of a religion, not necessarily bad but surely powerful.

    19. So God takes a look at the world and decides that yeah, things are looking mighty fine Time for short a vacation Sure, time in Heaven passes differently than on Earth, meaning that God s week long vacation lasts from the Renaissance to the current time Now God comes back and catches up on fun subjects like the Holocaust.Oh boy.Or rather, oh f k Because this book has plenty of F bombs But I m getting ahead of myself.The book starts in Heaven, then moves to Earth as Jesus Christ tries to make thin [...]

    20. I liked The Second Coming a lot, but it is a odd book The first 70 odd pages take place in heaven and are extraordinarily funny At that stage, I was really excited about the novel Once the story moves to New York City however, the tone changes increasingly and towards the end, little of that humour is left though delightful little sparkles pop up now and then Having said that, the story of Jesus is not exactly a comedy.Mind you it s still a very good book and if it weren t for the over abundance [...]

    21. Non ho mai riso cos tanto per merito di un libro Niven mi ha preso subito, come stile e come modo di raccontare un lessico immediato, una narrazione fresca e veloce.Con una ironia e una semplicit incredibili Niven dipana una storia surreale Dio rimanda, di nuovo, Ges in Terra a salvare l umanit da se stessa.Faccio molta fatica, da credente, a commentare questo libro senza cadere nel Ma come si fa a non capire , ma cercher di essere obiettiva.Quasi subito si comprende che non potr andare in altro [...]

    22. The return of Steven Stelfox is something that has to be anticipated, even if he has only a minor part to play in this book somehow turning into Simon Cowell in the process.For those that dont know him, he was the most morally reprehensible character ever created and in the last book, kill your friends, we got to understand what went on in his head It wasn t pretty, but it was damn funny.This book is about the 2nd coming of christ He has been sent back to earth by god, who is unhappy that the me [...]

    23. Strafatto Intontito Sballato Fumato Sbiellato Fuso Macch Ges fuori come un balcone cit pag 30 ver ebook Ecco, questo qui secondo me l esempio pi rappresentativo di cosa il lettore si trover davanti leggendo A volte ritorno di John Niven La storia parte da un presupposto semplice Dio andato in vacanza durante il Rinascimento Satana invece non dorme mai e ne ha approfittato per modellare secondo il suo volere la razza umana Al suo ritorno Dio, vedendo quello scempio che una volta erano gli uomini, [...]

    24. Ich habe mir schon mehrmals vorgestellt, was passieren w rde, wenn Gottes Sohn wie prophezeit in unsere heutige Welt zur ck kommen w rde John Niven ist mit diesem Roman eine gro artige, ironische, sehr b se Satire gelungen, die ganz sch n geh rig an den Grundfesten unserer Gesellschaft, an unseren Werten, allen Religionen, dem Papst, den amerikanischen Christen und am american way of life r ttelt Sprachlich und inhaltlich ist der Roman excellent, die Story ist ist rasant und keine Sekunde langwe [...]

    26. It s the first book by John Niven I read and I must say I m a little disappointed I loved the beginning, heaven was great I laughed a lot for the first few pages but after that it wen downhill The depiction of hell wasn t really inventive and the rest of the book was a little too easy I liked the character of Jesus but every other one apart maybe stelfox was a little too much one dimensional and you could see the ending coming miles and miles away Too bad I not a religious person so I wasn t off [...]

    27. Heaven is a better place than earth Nothing new so far But in this book even hell is a better place than earth, entertaining, funnier and interesting people there So my advise is Read the first chapters, skip the middle part and look forward to the last part The book teaches another lesson You can write a funny book about bad people, you can write a sad book about good people but you CANNOT write a funny book about a good man So the two commandments should be like this 1 Be nice2 Don t try to [...]

    28. Ironico e dissacrante, ma allo stesso tempo reale.Noi umani ci siamo incasinati e ci incasiniamo l esistenza, quando alla fine la lezione era davvero semplice Fate i bravi.

    29. Allora, devo dire che da come ne sentivo parlare mi aspettavo un capolavoro e invece mi sono trovata davanti una satira carina, ma a tratti noiosa Sicuramente un libro che va contro tutti gli ideali cattolici, rovesciando la visione classica di Dio e Ges Sicuramente, se siete credenti, vi sentirete offesi da questo libro senza dubbio un libro irriverente, anche se a volte l ho trovato inutilmente volgare Mi sembrato che si volesse calcare un po la mano in alcuni punti L idea carina, originale al [...]
