I give this book five stars as a rating. The author took an often quoted saying and turned it into a literary work. The book made you think outside of the box of our human definition of death, Heaven and the after life. I would highly recommend this book be added to your personal library. I look forward to the upcoming sequels. -Amazon Review
“It flew into my list of all-time best reads – Absolutely loved it. Devoured it in 24 hours” – Goodreads Reviewers
Isaac McGlynn has it all and he’s taking it with him.
Isaac is cold, unfeeling, and wildly successful. After experiencing the loss of his mother and living his childhood in an orphanage, he gained everything as a businessman. Everything but emotion.
When Isaac is diagnosed with terminal cancer and realizes that his time on Earth is severely limited, he decides to take some of his money with him rather than leaving it all to John Hannebury (his best friend and business partner) or Susan Mitchell (his personal assistant and only other friend). He wants his position of power to continue on the other side.
In heaven, Isaac is given the chance to revisit pivotal moments in his life and see them through a different perspective. He visits the present and finds his friends miserable and nearly dysfunctional without him. Will Isaac finally come around and understand what love is through a final act of self-sacrifice?
Why readers are falling in love with The Man Who Corrupted Heaven:
Absolutely loved it. Devoured it in 24 hours! Easy to read and very interesting perspective of life after death. – Goodreads Reviewer
I love a book that presents a philosophical standpoint interwoven with a story. You get the chance to enjoy the authors storytelling, but also get the chance to stop and process the philosophical standpoint that the author is approaching the story from. (Very Paulo Coelho, an author I love) – Goodreads Reviewer
This book wasn’t anything like I expected it to be. I started to read it because I couldn’t imagine how heaven could be corrupted. Fully prepared not to like it. Instead it flew into my list of all-time best reads because it was different. It was also captivating and absorbing with characters who, although flawed, were likable.
I can’t wait for the next titles – Goodreads Reviewer
I am an avid reader of all genres and this book was on my Xmas reading list. It kept my attention from the first page to the last, great characters & interesting tale…I was a bit disappointed it actually ended…as I wanted to what would happen next…!! – Goodreads Reviewer
Really enjoyed discovering the characters and the story! Loved the twists as they unfolded. Also gave me time to reflect on the most important things in life! Great read … cant wait for the next book – Goodreads Reviewer
An easy but thought-provoking read. Some great imagery and concepts. A fast-paced flow that left me reading “just one more chapter” until I’d suddenly finished it and was left keen for a sequel – Goodreads Reviewer
About the Author
Andrew Hood, Award-winning Australian writer has released a breakout novel to rave reviews and hunger for the next book. ‘It all started for me when I was driving home and someone on the radio said, ‘When you die, you can’t take anything with you’ and it left me asking ‘why not’ and ‘what if I could? And what would I want to take with me?’ explains author, Andrew Hood. When asked what the book was about, he’d reply, ‘Perspective. It is all about perspective. I invite my readers to consider the perspective they have in their own lives and question if they are seeing everything the way they should. Do they consider themselves a victim in life, or are they lucky with the opportunities they have? Sometimes it is all a matter of perspective.’ ‘There is no going back for me now, ‘ he said.
