Started reading the Bible that came free with the room. Old Testament God is an utter cunt. Also Noah when he spitefully curses Ham out of cuntishness. Bastard Noah. OT!God seems overly obsessive about food - possibly anorexic? And rather bastardish about 'justice'. Am looking forward to the second book, which I hear is nicer despite mad lapses in characterisation from the first book. Have alas been spoilered so I know that

He dies in the end, but then comes back for a bit like in Buffy.

You know, many a paper has been written by BNFs in the genre on OT!God vs NT!God. I agree with you - the characterisation is lousy and (SPOILER) what the hell is with all the those POV's in the NT? I mean, multiple POVs be a great writing tool, but not if you're going to go over exactly the same event from every perspective from the janitor upwards.

If you really get into this whole 'Bible-craze' thing, there's probably a weekly convention near where you live - they tend to to a reading each week, with a short analysis. Just be careful - the Rabid!Fans can have a really pronounced 'Holier Than Thou' attitude.
