Prefer the short stories of Ant Farm, Last Girlfriend, Spoiled Brats... this seemed like a longer version of one of those premises. Granted, still hilarious.

Stupid, funny, and a fast read. I thought the concept (Angels working in corporate) was funnier than the actual book turned out to be.

What in God’s name by Simon Rich is
Filled with characters plucked from the life of “everyman,” a delightful read that proves a worthwhile escape for few hour’s ride. If you’re looking for a book to entertain you, this is a great pick.

This was a fast read, due to the fact that it was so stupid, I needed to hurry up and finish. Just think god, smokes, drinks, curses and gambles on sports.
