Book Review: The Devil and Pastor Gus by Roger Bruner

(Three Stars out of Five)

A fresh take on the Faust legend of someone contracting with the devil for his soul, then trying to weasel out of it. Only, that isn’t quite what happens.

The Devil (B. L. ZeBubb) is a over the top, but have you read Marlowe or Goethe? And Pastor Gus, unlike the classic protagonist, is a humble, good man. Certainly not Faust, let alone Daniel Webster.

Starts slowly but gets better with each chapter. The Epilogue is best of all. It’s all too easy and obvious but this is satire.

I’ve already told you too much.

A good read.

(Full disclosure: I was a beta reader for the author.)
