review The Last Pope Download Õ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Á David Osborn David Osborn Á 8 Read & Download Hoose between a caring but guilt ridden American cardinal the very same young priest who made a heart rending confession so many years ago who would bring reforms to the Church or a cardinal whose soul belongs to the Inuisition At stake the future of the Church itself. My Grade 75% C and that was pretty much a giftI bought this book a new and shiny trade paperback at a thrift store recently because it was on sale at 225 cents It seemed like it might have been interestingThe blurb on the front compared it to The Shoes of the Fisherman and The Davinci Code Shoes I could understand as it was about a controversial non Italian being elected pope The Davinci Code was ludicrous as it was not in the least about Davinci art codes symbiology codexes the Louvre France or England or any descendent of Christ I guess they did that to promote sales as there was nothing else to recommend the bookNo spoilers The story begins many decades earlier when a poor young Italian priest hears the confession of a poor young American priest Hope this isn t a spoiler as it s pretty expected but both priests grow up to be cardinals and are the top two contenders to be the next popeThe American priest is plagued his entire adult life by nightmares which are described here in great detail Actually it is as though the priest is actually time travelling and the dreams are described as actual occurrencesThere were the usual bad novel stuff a former whore who becomes helper to a controversarial American priest A tremendously vindictive older nun who feels neglected that the popular cardinal has passed her by in favor of a younger nun as his assistant and confidant the gay young Italian priest who is trying to manipulate things in his favor all the suabbling and narrow minded members of the Curia The tremendous importance of finance and huge corporations versus anything that even resembles the original purpose of the churchIt s odd how this book published in 2007 seems to address so many things such as humility that have become important in the reign of the present popeIt is actually interesting once the Conclave begins but each Conclave chapter is followed by a very long flashbackOh and by the way the new pope is elected as expected and therefore the title The Last Pope has no bearing on this book at all

    [Read] (The Last Pope) It seems to me that novels about the inner workings of the Catholic Church have become very popular lately Perhaps this is because the Church is still something of an unknown entity a closed society a mystery to outsiders

    [Read] (The Last Pope) I liked this book Being a Catholic I always like to read about priests who go out on a limb with church doctrine The death of the pope in the book and how the Cardinal jockey for position to be elected is always interesting and makes for a fun plot I'm sure some of the goings on are truer then we'll ever know
