Cradle and All
by James Patterson

A horror novel for Catholics who worship the Virgin Mary. It is not scary for non-Catholics, and it drags compared to other Patterson novels. Two teenage virgins get pregnant. One presumably will give birth the Jesus and the other to Satan. Investigators from the Vatican try to figure out which girl will give birth to which supernatural character. It makes the point, unintentionally, that the whole Christian theology is nonsense.

Year Read: 2007
