First Reads Flop - Scars on the Face of God by C.G. Bauer

Scars on the Face of God: The Devil's BibleScars on the Face of God: The Devil's Bible by C.G. Bauer

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Every town has its secrets, and Schuetten, PA (later renamed Three Bridges) is no different. From infanticide to all out war between the forces of good and evil, this book explores the darkness that is residing over this small town.

While the end of the book was good, I was completely lost and confused for the entire first half of the book. The story jumped from topic to topic, and I almost gave up on the book completely because it just didn't make sense. Even when some of it started to click, other parts never really got explained and just seemed to be there for no good reason. Because of that, I wasn't a huge fan of this book. There's just too much jumbled nonsense to really get into the book, and the ending was just so-so which hardly made it worth it. However, the concept was interesting enough to warrant two stars - I think if it were written better, the concept could really be used to turn this story into a 5 star story.
