Pope Bob By Bill Dodds

bob kindle free books

When the first American-born pope, Leo XVII, wakes up on Seattle’s Skid Road he discovers that during his most recent alcoholic blackout the papal plane has been lost over the Atlantic and the world assumes he’s dead. Author Bill Dodds uses a light—and at times surprisingly lighthearted—touch to tell this story of vices and vocations, promises and possibilities, fears and faith. He has created a cast of delightful, believable, and unforgettable characters.

Bill Dodds’ book Pope Bob provides a rare blend of insider humor (Catholicism) and universal themes (alcoholism, loss of faith, purpose in life). As an earlier reviewer wrote, Bill may be the best novelist you haven’t heard of–yet. His characters are real, his situations believable and his inherent sense of grace among the flawed (all of us, actually) make Pope Bob one of those memorable reads that stays with you longer than you ever expected. I had it on my bed stand for several nights and during the day, I would find myself thinking about the people and wondering if I could do my bedtime reading in the early afternoon just to find out what happened next. It’s both the classic “good read” and a book with a deeper message. I definitely will be reading more of Bill’s work.
