The Devil's Diaries- Review and Giveaway

The full title of the book is as follows:
The Devil's Diaries
By Nicholas D. Satan
As Transcribed by Professor M.J. Weeks

This book is a bit of kitschy fun that I picked up yesterday because, as we all know, I love snark. And this book is chock full of it. A lot of tongue in cheek humor, The Devil's Diaries is broken down into five sections, labeled volumes in the book, detailing five different eras in the Devil's lifetime, starting with the beginning of his life and his fall, all the way up through modern times.

Many things are humorously attributed to devilish influence, but there are also some surprising historical and theological facts mixed in (I will not tell you what, as I do not want to spoil the fun). The book is a quick, fun read, I think it took me a couple of hours, and some of the spin put on it was actually quite witty. I enjoyed it, but I can see where some people might be a little bothered by some of the satirical indications made in it.

I have a copy of this book as a giveaway starting now, and this one will be very simple.
