Review: “Breaking the Devil’s Heart” is a creative, original, and intelligent novel. Mr. Goodman has given us a new definition of the afterlife – with demons, angels, Observers, and of course, the Devil. Hell has been remade as a corporation (The Company) where demons do their best to sell ‘The Formula’ to humans. Stewart and his girlfriend, Layla, were viciously murdered and when given a choice they chose to be Observers. Now Stewart is working on a plan to destroy Hell and The Formula, which includes infiltrating the inner workings of The Company. “Breaking the Devil’s Heart” is told exclusively through Stewart’s perspective as he fights to free humans from The Formula’s effects.
Mr. Goodman has written a thought-provoking novel about the nature of good and evil, the necessity of personal responsibility for our actions, and the deepest flaws and triumphs of the human race. Opening up the doors on religion, society, and the root of all evil, Mr. Goodman has created a unique look at both life and the afterlife. ”Breaking the Devil’s Heart” pulls no punches and is better for it – leaving the reader with a lasting impression and much to think about.
