Review this Book

Whispers of a Lesser God

With a Duck, a Dive and a Bob

by

Whispers of a Lesser God is the third in a collection of short, sharp, sarcastic satires that speak to the reader in a simple, effective fashion. They are especially designed for easy reading whilst making maximum impact. They all follow distinctly different paths, each story bizarre, unpredictable and mysterious. The reader is invited and induced to take part in the action as it unfolds, returning old characters while introducing new ones to the melee.

Maintaining complete originality, these stories will appeal to those who love cutting wit, uncomfortable honesty and pop culture, as well as those who enjoyed the first two collections: Spirits of a Lesser God, 2012 (9781780880846) and Visit from a Lesser God, 2014 (9781783062300).

Reader reviews from Visits from a Lesser God:

“He writes to no formula, no structure and no rules. Simply fast, furious and provocative writing. Refreshing and daring stuff.”

“Only a free thinker can write like this. His satires are flooded with original ideas and scenarios.”

“I like the way AR Forte not only speaks to the reader, but is also asking the reader uncomfortable and tantalizing questions.”

This is satire at its mysterious and thought provoking best. I read it in one session, because I could not put it down. Last Train From Ghost Town is a masterpiece in itself. Easily as good as Spirits Of A LesserGod and Visit From A LesserGod.

by Maureen O'Neil


What makes this so strong is that the characters are so believable, so realistic that they make each plot take on a life of its own. Each plot is so bizarre, so unpredictable that the reader doesn`t have an inkling to where they are being lead. Just like Spirits Of A Lesser God and Visit From A Lesser God.

by Sabrina Delgado


This is what I would call ´Right in your face writing `. Just like Spirits Of A Lesser God and Visit From A Lesser God the characters are so diverse and flawed that the reader has to follow them right to the end of each plot and scenario.

by Paul Jacobs


This is the one book that I have read lately which really stands out. Fascinating and lively stuff. Last Train From Ghost Town is so fast and emotive that the sheer drama of the final sequence of events leaves the reader in awe. AR Forte really knows what he`s doing with his style of writing.

by Barbara Manning


I would definately recommend this , if you are looking for something completely different. The characters could easily pass as next door neighbours, or simple, bland people that you know. And then they come alive with awesome reality.

by Gary Sharples


As with Spirits Of A Lesser God & Visit From A Lesser God ; The poem at the beginning of the book vertually implies that the reader is being followed, steered along and directed. Then he trips you up. Very shrewd and crafty writing.

by Darren Tweddle


The one thing that is sure and stands out about this writer is that the reader is not going to get bored and detached from the story-lines. Each one is a designed to keep the reader intrigued.

by Anita Hall.


This is a completely different style of writing. He speaks to the reader as if he is he is casually talking to an old pal. He is not trying to dazzle the reader with artistic, profound insights and observations.
