They have seven days to save us
I received a digital copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.
I was fortunate to have been a test reader, when this book was first published, I even got a mention in the acknowledgements. So, when I was invited onto this tour, I figured it would involve a quick skim to refresh my memory and then put a blog post together. Foolishly, I had forgotten that this is one of the best books of my reading life!
I can confirm that I reread On the Seventh Day, from cover to cover and fell in love with it, all over again. The synopsis gives you the gist and I do not want to include any spoilers, so it will be difficult to explain further. That said, there’s enough information to pique your interest, surely?
As a vicar’s daughter, I can confirm that Mark Wilson takes some risks with this book, and anyone not reading it to the end, may write it off as borderline blasphemous. In truth, they would be wrong as the subject matter requires a firm storytelling hand. We’re all aware of the damage that has been impacted on our planet, now more than ever, this book examines the careless way that human’s treat the world and each other.
Another mistake would be to assume that this is a lecture, and therefore boring, wrong again. It’s packed full of intelligent, irreverent comedy and challenges the reader to as it races to final Armageddon. There’s some strong language, but we are dealing with life and the death of civilisation, I may not use the prettiest words, under those circumstances.
I cannot do more than tell you that this is a must-read book. I should warn you, though, Mark Wilson has written a variety of different titles and they are all pretty special.
