    1. WE INTERRUPT OUR PROGRESS ON SERIES to bring you a special review What makes it special Well, a dude I know wrote it That s not a first around here, but it s certainly notable Plus, look at that cover What s not to like about it Necessary Evil and the Greater Good is a novel about Heaven and Hell, Purgatory and Truth or Consequences, NM, Greek and Norse gods, and a Scottish terrier named Sir Reginald Pollywog Newcastle III There are also a couple of human beings in the mix, but the real story is [...]

    2. Necessary Evil and the Greater Good is an imaginative novel filled with all kinds of supernatural beings I truly enjoyed the unnatural way that Leviticus good and Mestoph bad were friends instead of enemies It lends a refreshing outlook to seeing both sides of the story at the same time I enjoyed the versatile style of the characters backgrounds as well as the dark sense of humor It is what I expected from a book like this and was delivered delightfully throughout most of the book There were a f [...]

    3. Note I was provided a copy of this book for reviewReligions and gods collide in this wonderful story filled with secrets, intrigue, and a surprising amount of reality Ingle s self published novel offers a side to angels, demons, religion and the afterlife that was not only completely unexpected, but also one that is clever and funny as well What seems like a simple plan between an angel and demon soon becomes a mass endeavour as plans go awry and there are morals and issues to contend with You s [...]

    4. I was not sure what to expect from Adam Ingle s first novel, Necessary Evil and Greater Good I m not usually a fan of contemporary fantasy novels, which I believe is the category that this book would fall under However, the synopsis of the book captured my interest Without giving too much away, the book is about two friends, a Demon and an Angel, who work for rival companies Hell Industries and Heaven, Inc Both the Angel and the Demon hate their jobs, so they devise a scheme to get kicked out of [...]

    5. Necessary Evil and the Greater Good started out really strong good character development, strong plot line, laugh out loud moments At first I got really into it the idea of Heaven and Hell as corporations, the politics involved but about halfway through it kind of fell off While I definitely found myself rooting for the angel and demon trying to bring around the end of the world I found myself skipping through large sections of battle action that were hard to follow and poorly coordinated By the [...]

    6. If you are a fan of the movie Dogma read this book If you are a very strict Christian don t read this book I was raised in a strict Christian home and my mother if alive would make me beg for forgiveness from God for reading this book As for me I have my own ideas on the whole God thing This was without a doubt a book with action and adventure, humor, a little romance and a complete blast to read The idea of Good and Evil joining forces just to get out of their boring jobs is a great premise It [...]

    7. Imagine a place where heaven and hell are large conglomerates run by thousands employees with CEO s at the head And these companies have departments like a regular company This is the mind of Adam Ingle He takes two bored employees, one from heaven named Leviticus, and from hell names Mestoph and makes them friends, buddies Good enough friends to plan a way to end the world so that they could be free from their menial jobs.They involve humans in their convoluted plan Stephanie and Marcus Marcus [...]

    8. Very fun read Author did a great job with characterization, setting scene descriptions, overall pace which was a fast ride and dialogue which was particularly hilariousminiscent to me of dialogue found in Pratchett s Discworld novels My only complaint was the prevalence of grammatical errors, scattered throughout the work I generally find grammatical errors, typos and general editing shortfalls distracting In this case, the story and other mechanics were so entertaining that I was willing to ove [...]

    9. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.When I was contacted about reviewing it, I thought the subject matter was somewhat strange and out of my comfort zone , but I was curious enough to stick my neck out, so to speak, and see what it was about Well, the gamble paid off, because it was an outlandishly funny read.Mestoph and Leviticus are a demon and an angel, respectively, and despite working for rival companies Hell Industries and Heaven Inc they have struck an ag [...]

    10. For reviews, please visit my site.Actual rating 3.5Mestoph, a demon, and Leviticus, an angel, are bored with their day jobs in Hell Industries and Heaven Inc so they concoct a plan to bring about the very thing that has been forestalled by their squabbling organisations the end of the world But the best laid plans of angels and demons oft go awry, and soon the pair find themselves chasing a Greek goddess to Iceland while fighting off various attempts at their lives.This novel is insanely ambiti [...]

    11. So I ve been working on a plan to get us kicked out of The Afterlife, but not banished to T or C for eternity, with enough money to get us settled and to just wait out the eventual end Leviticus and Mestopheles have been friends for a thousand years, a friendship rooted in mutual hatred of jobs they ve come to see as utterly pointless They hatch an elaborate plan to get themselves fired presumably because Heaven, Inc and Hell Industries do not accept resignation letters and begin a spirallingser [...]

    12. Adam Ingle has an extraordinary imagination and an ability to string words together to tell an epic scaled tale For this to be his first book, I am properly impressed It s unique, creative, and thought provoking There are horrifying as well as comic events all woven expertly together.Mestoph, son of Mephistopheles, didn t have the hate, anger, and rage his father had That s not to say he wasn t a trouble maker by any means He and his Angelic best friend Leviticus, an angel with a desk job, are b [...]

    13. I received this book free through First Reads program.Necessary Evil and the Greater Good is a buddy comedy in which two friends are sick of their jobs and one comes up with a brilliant plan which will get them out of ever having to work again The catch is that one is an angel and the other s a demon, and, of course, not everything works out quite as planned.Adam Ingle starts out his characters journey borrowing heavily from the movie Office Space, with heaven and hell transformed into a reflect [...]

    14. The End of the World, Prophecies, Omens, Angels, Demons, Gods, Satan, Assassins, Heaven, Hell, Asgard, Purgatory, Humans, Santa and a NEO Viking rock band This book has all that and .This is a very funny book about two friends who are sick of their jobs and decide to bring about the end of the world, so they can retire Of course, nothing goes right, thus the hilarity ensues as they attempt to survive what they started.The characters are very well written especially Sir Regi Action sequences are [...]

    15. An angel and a demon team up with a plan to escape the drudgery of life in Heaven and Hell Naturally, it all goes horribly wrong.Mestoph a demon and Leviticus an angel are both bored of their jobs They hatch a plan to escape A couple of humans and a talking dog are involved, for some reason People want to kill them Ragnorak breaks out.There are some minor formatting and editing errors, but this is generally very readable As you may gather from my summary which is my memory from reading it over a [...]

    16. awesome book, a real page turner for being the author s 1st book ever written it was beautifully done im looking forward for the sequel the book is about a demon and an angle that team up to cause the end of the world cause there tied of there jobs in the afterlife the demon, Mestoph has a plan the goes terribly wrong and enlist the help of his friend that happens to be an angle of God named Leviticus the plan also includes two humans names Marcus and Stephanie and a dog Named Sir Reginald Polly [...]

    17. Adam Ingle does a great job of mixing humor with an end of the world premise The beginning of the book was crisp and clearly constructed so the writing pulled me in and I was excited to see where the author would take me with his characters Unfortunately, at times there seemed to be so much going on that the natural story flow became a little confusing Additionally, the writing became less engaging as the story progressed which was sort of disappointing Overall, the story has promise and I would [...]

    18. I actually honestly enjoyed this, and found the entire concept to be fascinating, and the entire world to be extraordinarily ridiculous and funny It became less ridiculous as the novel went on, kind of, and I m not sure whether that was a good thing or a bad thing There probably could have been woman in the story I felt the story almost entirely revolved around men, which makes sense, since it is based on fairly sexist mythology, but still Apart from that, I loved it, an extremely entertaining [...]

    19. When I first started this book, I thought it d be interesting and that I d enjoy it I really liked the characters Mestoph and Leviticus The idea of Heaven and Hell was interesting and God was quite different than He is usually portrayed The idea of ETA Estimated Time of Apocalypse and how Heaven and Hell were plotting the End of All Days was great The writing could have been better and sometimes the story got to a point and I was just really Honestly, I stopped reading after Hitler.

    20. While the sample didn t provoke spontaneous laughter on my part, I d be willing to give the whole ofNecessary Evil and the Greater Gooda chance to do so You know, if it appeared before me like an over named dog and I didn t have to spend 5 to make it happen.Read the full ebook Sample Reader review here.

    21. This book was somewhat disappointing Although the subject matter and concept of the book sounded really cool and interesting, it was written somewhat poorly so I had a hard time getting into the book The language was very simple, so it felt a little awkward, as though a teenager had written it.Also, my printed paperback copy of the book had no page numbers, yet the book had a table of contents with page numbers on the third pageWtf

    22. Leviticus and Mestoph have a plan to jumpstart the apocalypse and come out on the other end , and all they need is an Omen, a Prophecy, and 2 humans but things don t go exactly according to plan.This was a great book It keeps readers engaged with a tale of epic proportions I would recommend this book to anyone, and especially anyone who enjoys fantasy tied with apocalyptic and biblical ideas I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    23. The good, the bad, and a bunch of others A well written religious comedy In an age of offence and being offended it s great to read stories that don t take things too seriously Hats off to Mestoph and Leviticus, they ve stirred the pot but at least they re willing to lick the spoon

    24. Love, loved this story I found it to be well written, creative, and entertaining Adam is a friend, so I got a lot of his references and personality throughout the story Sir Regi was one of my favorite characters Never would have put Norse mythology with Judeo Christian religion together, but they fit nicelyWell done sir, well done.

    25. I received this book as part of a contest I liked it but I found that I sometimes grew tired of all the description and wanted the plot to move on I liked the concept and the characters.
