I, Lucifer: Finally, the Other Side of the Story by Glen Duncan
5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book., April 19 2007
What a charming novel! I picked this one up off Amazon's recommendations list, and was more than pleasantly surprised. It appears that Mr. Duncan is a British author with a raging sense of humour and a very twisted brain. I love it. And I also love the existential doubt, the reams of theological interpretation, the brilliant asides and non sequiturs.

There's no real way to summarize this book, except, as I already said: charming and brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing, Jan. 27 2007
As a Canadian of Irish descent, this book changed my view of my own history. It brought tears to my eyes, and a new understanding of my ancestors and my own past. I bought this book in an airport book store in Dublin on the recommendation of a rather crazy tour guide, and I think it's one of the best books I've purchased. I was amazed at how much we in the west never knew about the Irish famine and the atrocities of the British invaders.
