Virtuoso book designer and illustrator Barry Moser, many of whose masterpieces are already museum-housed modern classics, devoted nearly five years to the greatest book project of all-a hand-crafted, designed, and illustrated Bible to be published in a special 400-copy limited edition. Now, Viking Studio is proud to make this work of art and devotion available to a broader public in a paperback edition. The Pennyroyal Caxton edition of The Holy Bible is lovingly designed and simply set in black type, subtly accented with red. But its revolutionary impact lies in its illustrations-haunting, sometimes dark but always luminous, described by Newsweekas "engravings with the brooding power of magical realism." No connoisseur of great art or spiritual reader will want to be without this edition. It is a rich heirloom gift for holidays, holy days, and every day.

Not bad overall. Has one of the best opening lines of any book, second only to "All this happened, more or less" from Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5.
The main character keeps your interest but the story quickly begins to wander off on so many tangents it's like reading a Russian novel. But there's something for everyone...love, sex, violence, redemption, like a 20 page menu in a family restaurant. But at over 900 pages, it could have done with tighter editing.
