Where to purchase: 

The MisreadBible: Genesis by J. R. Eldridge and narrated by Joshua Saxon is just what I needed to LMFAO today! Highly recommend if you are needing a laugh/having a bad day or looking for something new.

This is an amusing retelling of bible stories with an adult twist. There’s plenty of variety- a Star Wars themed fable, a Dr. Seuss-ish tale, and so on. Some of the stories include; how God made the world, the making of day/night/seasons, where the saying “Are we there yet?” came from, and plenty more.

Some examples of what you will hear (very small list, but hopefully this will give you a general idea): Two sons were born to eyebrow, Jock itch is the father of…, sea monkeys, marinade is the father of pesto/ketchup/hollandaise/etc., Isaac was playing smush the oyster with Rebekah, Isaac named the well Rehoboth meaning thank F for that, and many more.

The table of nicknames was one of my favorites, although it’s extremely difficult to pick favorites because they all held my interest and made me chuckle. I haven’t laughed this hard from a book since Succubus Christmas Special: A LitRPG Short Story. My favorite line was: “Because this is the bible and it’s always the women’s fault.”

The narrator, Joshua Saxton, did an excellent job. I would listen to him again.

If you are religious and can tolerate some joshing around, give this book a shot. If you are religious and cannot take any joking about the bible, stay clear.

I hope this is not the last we hear from this author. This will be a repeat listen for sure.

*I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book!

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: swearing off and on throughout (f, s), talk about incest & rape, and religion.
