“Paradise News” by David Lodge

D and I went to Hawaii in January as a delayed honeymoon. This caused my mom to suggest reading David Lodge’s Paradise News. It was a lot of fun — amusing, easy to read, but not utterly fluff. I thought the level of cynicism about vacationing was just right, and the running theme juxtaposing discussions of “Hawaii as paradise” with theological stuff was good fun. All in all a good read, particularly for a hotel balcony in 75 degree weather in January.
