Reviews - What do our customers think?
Quick Read about the Golden Rule   Oct 28, 2008
An engaging quirky little book with a mere 182 pages. This rapid read contains good character development with tongue in cheek references to Eva Peron, little Jackie Paper and Puff the Magic Dragon, big business vs. the small guy and many more humorous characters. The book gently chides about morals without being preachy and demonstrates the do's and don'ts of treating others as we would like to be treated. I would recommend this novel as a fun read for those who want a feel good book that doesn't require a lot of thinking about an intricate plot or discourse although the book could sustain a brief discussion about how we interact with others.
Watch out for the devil!!  Mar 30, 2008
Saving Erasmus: A NovelA delightful,tongue-in-cheek tale of a newly ordained young minister in search of a job. He is given the chance to save a small Kansas town from the devil. Familiarity with the story of Jonah in the Bible will increase your enjoyment of this novel.
Inspiring, entertaining & memorable   Feb 12, 2008
Steve Cleaver's first novel hooks you in the first chapter and keeps you until the end. Andrew Benoit's travels and tribulations are funny and sad and always interesting. Even the Angel of Death is an interesting character with personality and feelings.

As other reviewers have said, the prose is well-written, efficient, and a quick read. A lot of things happen in one week in Erasmus but it goes by quickly, and you can feel the time slipping away from Andrew Benoit as he tries to save the town before the Angel of Death's deadline.

How do you get an entire town to repent and find faith? By marching through the town square wearing sackcloths? The story asks important questions about what it means to have faith, then lose it, and then try to "find" it again.
Intriguing Prose and Wit  Dec 7, 2007
Steven Cleaver's first novel captivates from the opening line. His zany characters reflect bits and pieces of us all. This journey is filled with wit and elements that make the reader just shake their head. Watch for the double meanings in characters and actions. The ending brings us around to the truth, both personally for the protagonist and for the reader. A reflective story in a memorable cloak.
Just a delightful read  Aug 13, 2007
Andrew Benoit meets the Angel of Death exiting a washing machine. Well, with a beginning like that, I definitely had to journey through this delightful book about losing faith and personal redemption. Steven Cleaver writes with such wit and presents us such amazing characters such as Mrs. Davonport, owner of everything in Erasmus, a wacky bunch of mystics named after television stars. This book is kind of like CS Lewis meeting Carl Hiasson. I could not wait to see if Andrew Benoit, was able to save the town of Erasmus from death in a week or if his attempts failed. This wacky, wonderful story is a great summer read, with more than a hint of spiritual consideration for us all.
