Blog Tour: The Three Sisters by Bryan Taylor 
Welcome to my stop on The Three Sisters Blog Tour
hosted by VABT. Blurb:

Nuns just want to have fun! But when three former Catholic nuns have too much fun and get in trouble with the law, they become nuns on the run.
Driving back to Washington D.C. where they work at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Parts, the three sisters are arrested in Tennessee. After defeating the local deputy in strip poker, they escape from jail, and are pursued by the zealous Detective Schmuck Hole, who has personally offered a $10,000 reward for their capture on The 700 Club. Little do they know that when the three sisters visit the Washington Monument, their lives will change forever.
Set in 1979, The Three Sisters is a humorous, adult satire that skewers not only organized religion, but the government, the media, intellectuals, corporate greed and every other part of the establishment. Maybe not the greatest story ever told, but possibly the funniest.
“The most pestilential book ever vomited out of the jaws of Hell.” — Billy Sunday
Cindy's Review: I'm not really into religion and nuns, but I fell to the part 'humorous and funny'. I just love comedy anything. Coito was sure a bad girl. I like how she was such a carefree nun. In fact, it's ironic that she is a nun.Throughout the book, I was thinking 'this nun. tsk tsk.' The three girls are just opposite from nuns. 

I enjoyed the adventure of this story. The irony was also very enjoyable, although Coito used pretty big words and I couldn't understand some things she was talking about. I also like how she got off topic so much. It's just like to get off topic. And then you get to learn all about her.
The parts that didn't appeal to me was that this whole novel seemed like a long explanation. There was some dialogue, but I felt like the action was seemed like I'm reading through a channel or something. Or like a sheet of plastic is in between me and the action.
 Although my favorite genres are YA and romance and all that teenage drama, it is fun to read an adventure and funny novel once in a while. For those who would enjoy a hilarious, ironic, breaking all rules and laws novel, here it is! 

Author Bio: Taylor is a double PK, a preacher’s kid of a preacher’s kid. With that legacy he faced two destinies, being an unhappy triple PK (Jubilees 17:23, “He that is born unto the son of a preacher and himself preaches shall be miserable until his dying day and suffer eternal damnation.”), or being sacrilegious and happy.
He decided to forsake the Southern Baptists for Catholicism, but when he applied to join a convent, he was rejected (sex discrimination!), so he decided to do the next best thing: write a novel about the three nuns he would most like to meet.
Bryan Taylor was born in Louisiana, grew up in Michigan and Texas, went to school in Tennessee, South Carolina and California, taught in Switzerland for a year, and has traveled to 50 countries, more than any Pope except Saint John Paul II. He now lives in California, which is one of the few places with people crazier than him.
Happy Touring~
