Giant Slayers by Jeff & Ken Altabef | Book Review **REVISED**

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN EDITED EDITION AFTER THE AUTHOR CONTACTED ME ABOUT SOME OF THE BIBLICAL THINGS IN THIS BOOK.**

4 stars.

This book was an interesting introduction to some old religious stories that I knew virtually nothing about. It was fun and interesting, but there were a few things that could have been slightly better. Keira, GoodReads.

Giant Slayers

Am I religious? No. Do I know a lot about religion? Also no. Will this be highly detailed? Definitely not. But I can talk about books, so let’s do this!

As I mentioned, I feel the need to talk about the religious aspect of this book. This is a retelling of a biblical story and therefore is religious as a whole. Depending on the way you would like to view this story, this may either matter to you, or not matter that much. Originally, I didn’t notice any discrepancies in the religion, but after reading a review, I then thought I saw some. After the author kindly contacted me to clarify some of the finer details which I did not understand, I have now changed my review and would like to say that as far as I am aware, this story is biblically canon as much as a story not actually in the Testament can be.

imagesThe meme was relevant when I first wrote this and no longer is, but it’s quite good anyway, so I’m leaving it in. This book was quite interesting, very fast paced, and I really enjoyed David’s family. The romance was slightly clichéd, but otherwise interesting. I normally wouldn’t say this, as I love romance, but I felt that there was slightly too much emphasis on the relationship and not enough on the other aspects of the story. I also really enjoyed the POV of Alzsheba (the Witch of Endor) and really enjoyed the writing style and especially the opening paragraph, which you can find below.

In conclusion, I really enjoyed this book and only had a few minor things that I would have liked- mostly just to see more of the really interesting world that I don’t know much about.
