Book Review of "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" By Author Davis Aujourd'hui
"The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude", September 29, 2011
**** (4Stars) By Kathleen Kelly "Celticlady" (Rhinelander, WI USA)
Hilarious, laugh out loud, must read book!! If you love humor and satire then this is the book for you. I was put off a bit by the title and I am not real religious nor Catholic but I decided, what the heck, I will give this book a chance as I like to discover new authors. "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" is a book told in the viewpoint of 65 year old Sister Mary Olga Fortitude who resides at the Have a Heart Convent where she teaches various religious classes. At each class she tells a story about a different resident of Bucksnort Wisconsin. Also at this convent is Father Cowberries, a priest with a passion for 'the drink' and Mother Superior Carmen Burana, who was a prostitute in a former life.. Sister Mary Olga shares the Father's passion for drink, she also loves her cigarettes, but of course she tends to clash with the Mother. A lot of the story tells us the ingenious ways she finds to slake her thirst for these vices ie. the four hole outhouse and the crucifix. The descriptions of the townsfolk and their names, Diddles Dinkledorf and Fartley Dinkledorf alone are enough to have you laughing. Put all the zany characters and their foibles together makes for a hilarious story. I found myself laughing out loud at most of the book. You absolutely have to read this book if you enjoy in your face humor. You don't have to be religious or Catholic to enjoy this book!! I highly recommend it.
