[A] stoic poignancy reminiscent of Raymond Carver . . . God Is Dead is a heady cocktail of ideas . . . Currie has proved he can write and write well Guardian God or Sora, as shes called has come to earth to experience its conflicts first hand, but adopting a human form also means assuming human frailty and mortality, and when Soras death and her true identity is discovered, the world is immediately and irrevocably changed. Waves of panic, civil unrest and mass suicide sweep the globe; young men take the future into their own hands, armies go to war over fate versus free will, and parents in the absence of an alternative, and with nothing else to do on a Sunday turn their children into objects of worship. God is Dead is truly and terrifyingly original; blasphemous and heretical, its an exceptional debut and a remarkable read. From its stark title to its startling final page, Ron Curries novel packs one tight punch of fresh ideas in prose so smart it smarts . . . As a satirist, Currie has only bad news to impart but, as a devotee of Kurt Vonnegut, he does it with such humour, youll barely notice Telegraph As smart and addictive as any debut novel youre likely to pick up this year . . .
