“The Universe Builders” by Steve LeBel is a unique, fun story that I never wanted to end. Bernie has just graduated from “god school” and he’s looking to enter the workforce as a new god making universes. The problem with Bernie is he isn’t like the other gods. He doesn’t stand out like they do, and even though he’s mighty talented, he also goes against the grain…not what those in charge of hiring want in a budding young god.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this novel, but I’m very glad I gave it a go. This interesting tale is filled with laughs, fun, enjoyment, and emotion. It made me happy and sad, while laughing out loud at Bernie and his experiences. I was vested in seeing Bernie succeed, and I kept turning the pages to find out if he did. I truly cannot wait to see what LeBel has in store for readers next.
