Divine Misfortune Review

Divine Misfortune is a story about a young married couple, Teri and Phil, who had never been in the need of any kind of god. When Phil is passed up once again for a promotion by his co-worker who worships a god all his own, Phil decides to find one for both him and Teri even though she is a bit skeptic at first. And, so they turn to the internet for their search.

They soon discover that choosing a god isn’t as simple as it seems, mostly due to the fact that gods demand so much. Finally they found Luka, the raccoon god of prosperity, who in return for his services only demands a small portion of their good fortunes…and a place to stay.

At first the young couple doesn’t seem to mind their new roommate, and the parties, but soon realize that they had entered something that they will find difficulty escaping with their lives.

Divine Misfortune is A. Lee Martinez’s comical portrayal on how religion is seen more as a fad in these modern times, and how it is taken way too seriously, but if you’re looking for a good laugh and a book that is controversial as well, then this could be the book for you.
