Pigeonwings is a very funny book and highly entertaining! Now, on to Godsquad! Nov 04, Arun rated it it was amazing. Another winner in the Clovenhoof series. Entertaining in a roundabout way. I was very disappointed in this sequel. The first book was so unrelentingly funny, and I love the character of Jeremy Clovenhoof.
See a Problem?
He's just the right mix of innocent and profane, and I laughed all through this book's predecessor. Even when I discovered the book had a plot, it was still good and funny and there's just something I love about redeeming the irredeemable. Did corrupting the incorruptible, as they tried to do in Pigeonwings , work just as well?
Michael as in, the Archangel Michael , ba I was very disappointed in this sequel. Michael as in, the Archangel Michael , banished from the Celestial City for his treachery in Clovenhoof , ends up moving into the flat downstairs from our beloved Clovenhoof. And while his initiation into the human world had some funny bits like discovering his recently added bodily functions , Michael is himself a much less compelling character than Clovenhoof, and he isn't even remotely as funny.
I didn't like him, and a book like this, which is only funny if the characters aren't hugely annoying, didn't work for me. This one had a lot more plot in it, and I think that could've been a good thing, but the plot it has is incredibly boring. I wanted to skip most of it.

Since the rest of this series doesn't feature its titular character, I don't think I'll be reading any more of these books. TL;DR: This sequel made me sad, because the first in the series made me so happy. This one didn't. Review to come. Jan 10, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. Pigeonwings is the sequel to Clovenhoof. Even though you could read Pigeonwings as a stand alone I would highly recommend reading Clovenhoof first as not only is it also hilarious the first meeting of the main characters Jeremy, Ben and Nerys is one that you don't want to miss.
In Pigeonwings we meet a few new characters but the main one is Archangel Michael who like Jeremy has been sent to earth to go it alone and live as a mere mortal. It is now the turn of Michael to figure out how humans live a Pigeonwings is the sequel to Clovenhoof. It is now the turn of Michael to figure out how humans live and having to come to terms with his new way of life.
As with Jeremy in Clovenhoof, Michaels road of discovery is one of great enjoyment for the readers. There are quite a few funny incidents but I especially loved the story telling session with the children at Sunday school and the chapters with the cubs. Even though I didn't laugh out loud as much with this book as I did with Clovenhoof, Pigeonwings is still a really great read. How the 2 authors come up with such great characters and story lines is beyond me. These are books you really need to read to realise what gems they are, definitely the funniest series of books you will ever read.

At the end of tha PigeonWings by Heide Goody and Iain Grant - a review Pigeonwings is the second book in the ongoing Clovenhoof series of comedy novels by Goody and Grant, and shows clearly a developing style and vision for the somewhat bizarre cast of characters.
There are throwbacks to the previous volume which serve to add further coherency, and strengthen the impression that the authors have everything under control and are actually being very, very clever which I can well believe ; there is also a good deal of character development going on as we get insights into the chaotic banality honestly not a contradiction!
The tale builds nicely, slowly dropping hints and clues here and there, and rising to a splendid conclusion amid broken dreams, the loss of the most precious things possible and the ashes of a monastery burned to the ground in under a chapter - what else would one expect from Michael and Lucifer! This was an excellent read, with surprises and laughs on virtually every page, some well-drawn characters some of whom are simply frightful! An easy five stars for me. Michael soon finds that being a good person involves more than helping out at Sunda kindle unlimited, read through the other 3, basically unrelated book, and not going through this series, and it all started because wanted to see what the one about Trump was, go figure As punishment for his part in an attempted coup in Heaven, the Archangel Michael is banished to Earth.
Not to be Missed This is, as it is stated in the description of the book, the second in the Clovenhoof series. I sincerely hope anyone reading this review will have already read Clovenhoof. While this can be read as a stand alone book, enjoyment will be so much better if the first book is read first.
It truly makes the experience of this book so much delightful. Michael is living downstairs from Ben and Clovenhoof. He is not as prepared for living amongst humans as Clovenhoof was. Unfortunately, Not to be Missed This is, as it is stated in the description of the book, the second in the Clovenhoof series. Unfortunately, Clovenhoof takes advantage of his ignorance. For some reason, probably because Michael somehow must believe Clovenhoof isn't as devilish on earth as he was in hell, he trusts Jeremy. Big, big mistake. Hysterical mistake. There's a point in the book where two characters are on a team with another.
One is questioning the other why is the third on their team. I found myself literally, I mean literally, so he doesn't hurt you, doofus. I mean, really! There has been a lot going on before this point is reached. I have not wanted to give spoilers! There is a paint ball scene here which had me laughing so hard I scared my cat and the dogs who were all peacefully asleep.
Not to mention the spa day. Do not miss this! At some point in the book there is a wedding.

Believe it or not, the wedding is both touching and very funny. That's all I will say about that. This book is awesomely funny, a riot actually. Not to be missed if you enjoy romantic comedy, with a lot of preening and competitiveness between two characters. I stand by my belief that this can be read as a stand alone, but for full enjoyment, read Clovenhoof first.
Pigeonwings is great fun to read, also British to the core. The action unfolds at a good pace, the characters are well drawn and funny. Not a boring moment. The one gripe I may have is the character of Clovenhoof himself. He's more like a naughty teenager than the Prince of Darkness. Michael reminds me of my boss. Not much of an Archangel here either. Clearly, having presided over humanity's foibles for millennia, they'd know about the digestive and renal systems, and the evil of Satan would hav Pigeonwings is great fun to read, also British to the core. Clearly, having presided over humanity's foibles for millennia, they'd know about the digestive and renal systems, and the evil of Satan would have manifested in more profound ways than flipping bras.
Come to think of it, Satan is not really evil in himself. As the God's tool to tempt and handle the sinful and unrepentant, he's an integral part of the system. It is the souls he's dealing with that are evil, not Satan himself. But, of course, how to draw the characters is the authors' prerogative. All, I'm saying is that if I was to write the book, I'd draw these two differently, and then, quite likely, the story wouldn't be any near as much fun as it is!
Archangel Michael is banished to earth for participating in Saint Peter's "Keep Heaven Holy" scheme meant to make Heaven more exclusive and funnel more souls to Hell for minor transgressions. Personally, I agree with making Heaven exclusive to vegans, especially since Saint Francis keeps his animals on site and is especially fond of bunnies, but that's an agenda I intend to push for once I get there. Back to the book Michael ends up living in the same building as the banished Satan.
He find Archangel Michael is banished to earth for participating in Saint Peter's "Keep Heaven Holy" scheme meant to make Heaven more exclusive and funnel more souls to Hell for minor transgressions. He finds Satan repugnant. He also finds bodily functions repugnant. Once he gets over redecorating his flat and realizing that he probably shouldn't have had the toilet removed, Michael begins to settle in.
He joins a church, he joins a gym. He develops an app. Michael also goes to a wedding on an island off Wales and finds something he lost a very long time ago Read this book. Oct 19, Izabela rated it it was amazing. The second book in the Clovenhoof series is just as funny as the first. This story features the Devil once again but focuses more on the Archangel Michael who has been cast from heaven into the mortal world.
As he tries to figure out why he's on Earth, Clovenhoof, who is his neighbor, continues to wreak havoc. The second Clovenhoof Most enjoyable second outing for Jeremy Clovenhoof, now in the company of St Michael who has also been banished to Earth to live as a mortal. Laugh out loud funny, I really enjoyed this and look forward to the next volume.
