THE BOOK OF ELI: A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE BOOK OF ELI
BY SAM MOFFIE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Eli Canaan is a believer. And, like many, he believes himself to be a principled and moral man. Well, for the most part anyway. But, after a series of missteps, sins, some would say, Eli's life is suddenly and unexpectedly altered forever. A spurned wife, a gypsy, a hex and spiritual intervention may all be at the root of Eli's unexpected, deep and earnest introspection, which is like nothing he has ever experienced before - in this world.

God and Jesus, as well as a host of zany characters, help show Eli the pathway to redemption (among other things). During his journey Eli is entertained by atheists, a renowned psychoanalyst, and one of the greatest jokesters in history, Groucho Marx. Eli takes nothing for granted as he is guided through a series of events and opportunities for learning what ought to be everyone's purpose in life - living the commandments as they were meant to be lived by.

An uplifting story of hope and meaning and belief in the goodness that can come by opening one's eyes to the Heavens...

Sam Moffie once again creates a story which every reader will identify with, feel empathy for, and be entertained by. The protagonist's adventures and concomitant soul-searching take us to a heightened level, whereby we ourselves begin to seek and ultimately find the road to salvation, if we choose to follow it. And, as any reader of Moffie knows, a good laugh is never more than a page away, if that...

Like Vonnegut... no holds barred
Like Rand... the consummate pragmatist
Like Aesop... a moral message disguised by humor
Moffie... master of all domains

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
The Book of Eli is Sam Moffie’s fourth novel. The other three have won numerous awards and received glowing reviews. A lifelong baseball fan, Youngstown, Ohio resident Sam Moffie graduated from Wittenberg University. He manages two sports bars, serving on the front lines of America’s most heated debate topics: sex, sports and politics. When not writing or marketing, he can be found observing human nature at his bars in Youngstown, Ohio. Forty-nine years of age, Sam resides with Juliette and a host of family members who enjoy a good fire, fine wine, backyard football, good movies and of course good books. When all else fails, there is always a walk with the dogs. To find out more about Sam Moffie, visit his website HERE.

holdenj said...

I think Eli sounds like a great character with a great premise.

holdenj said...

Oh my Bingo, that was back in 8/09! I think No Mad looks great, he (Aaron) certainly hits the high points of a road trip by going to Roswell and Niagara Falls!
JHolden955(at)gmail(dot)com

holdenj said...

I think that it's interesting that Sam manages two sports bars! I'm sure he hears all kinds of story ideas around there.

holdenj said...

Trespasser by Paul Doiron was great. It is the second Mike Bowditch book, he's a Maine game warden. Super reads!

Linda Kish said...

This sounds very interesting. I do like zany characters.

Linda Kish said...

He seems like quite a character himself. And he lives in the perfect place for a baseball fan...Youngstown, Ohio.

Linda Kish said...

I haven't been reading too many mystery/thrillers lately. Would you consider Cross a mystery? That's probably the closest I have come for a while.

lkish77123 at gmail dot com

Linda Kish said...

You are too funny. Okay, is jinx the game we all remember or something else? Do we need to read the book to find out? I like that Sam likes to be described as quirky. From the descriptions of his books, it seems to fit.
