    Martin Little, Resurrected was a fun read that will make you smile over and over again. It has so much going for it. Ms. Medler has a lighthearted, storytelling voice that suits this genre perfectly. I can't wait to see what her next book will bring. Ms. Ella builds the characters in such a way, you find yourself turning the pages because you want to see what happens next. She is incredible with her words. The book has just the right balance of humor and real-life feel. My heart repeatedly went out to Martin who seemed to be the only one tripping over his own feet. (And I thought I had bad luck) The book showed the readers the main reason that total opposites are able to become friends because of one major thing that linked them for life. I honestly felt like I was reading about real people. This is one of the best books I have read in quite some time. It drew me in from the very beginning and kept my attention all the way through. I fell in love with some of the characters, (others, I loved to hate). I laughed and bit my nails as Martin found himself in yet another predicament. I found myself feeling as if I knew him personally. I felt like I was watching his life unfold around me. Ms. Medler obviously poured her soul into this, and it shows. I'm impressed. I hesitate to go into any detail because I would hate to be a spoiler, but the characters are exceptionally well-developed and the plotline is solid. I was drawn in and enveloped by the world Medler created. Indie books are often a toss-up. This one is a definite winner. I read the book quickly and will be looking for more books to read by this talented author. I enjoyed it! If you want to know what heaven looks like, get this book. Medler describes her version of it flawlessly!

    If you like reading fantasy novels this book is for you. What an imagination this author has as she dwells on what heaven would be like in her make believe world. I would have never thought of computers in heaven, but this shows you the creativity of Ella Medler. Martin Little Resurrected is colorful with the story of Martin who seems to have no confidence in himself and discouraged of how his life was on earth. Learning patience, and to take chances his world changes. This novel is delightful with many turns and twists to keep the reader from putting down the book. Good Job Ella Medler.

    This story is a different take on the idea of Heaven, in that it felt more like a bureaucratic nightmare...but written as a tongue-in-cheek comedy. It did, however, highlight beliefs in a contentious way, forcing the mind to question everything.Yes, it was funny but it was far more than that, and I appreciated the author's determination to make us wonder about the myths rooted in our world.Some great dialogue and intriguing characters that fitted well into the story. Good world-building, too.Worth a look.

    "From time to time, I come across a book that, at first sight, might appear like many others, but after reading it I am amazed at the treasure within its pages. Martin Little, Resurrected is such a book for me. If you thought about heaven as the imaginary model of an ideal community - all peaceful, calm and organized - forget about it. The story is, in my opinion, a subtle satire focusing on the individual’s failure to integrate into a society to which he does not belong. Martin’s lighthearted journey, the twists and turns of the funny action-packed story makes it a pleasant read. The author displays an exquisite style while conjuring up a highly inventive plot. I savored every page of this deeply satisfying novel, fluently written with a natural narrative gift. I’m looking forward to reading more books from Ms. ELLA MEDLER." Carmen Stefanescu

    What a great ride!! Ella, I must say, I found myself dreaming about heaven, and having wings of my own, night after night. The writing is wonderful! Your attention to detail took me away with each and every word. I must say, in the beginning of the book, I kept telling Martin to MAN UP! I quickly loved his character, found myself relating to him in so many different ways. The "Heavenly" process had me both chuckling and wondering, "is that really what happens?". I would definitely recommend this book. It's a refreshing change to what I normally read. I hope there's a book 2 in the works, I need to know what happens next!

    I did a full review of this book on my blog. I did not know what to expect with this one. Her concept of heaven and hell is very original and unique. I found myself identifying with Martin Little by the time I was half-way through the book. The way she created each character is wild! The challenges they face and how they overcome them is true to life. Great job Ella!

    The cover art for this story is perfect. You know you’re in for a fun adventure before you even crack the book.In the beginning there was…Well, there was Martin Little, a cup of hot chocolate and a favor. That favor culminates in a mixed bag of people all crammed into a holding room at the police station.. It isn’t really important why they’re there, it’s what they do!You have Martin, the eternal pessimist, Gary, the drunken tramp, and Vee, the hippy girl. When the door opens, it’s Gary’s friend Archie with the keys to freedom.Tired of waiting and not knowing what’s going to happen to them, they simply leave.They rush to Archie’s van and tear out of the parking lot. His driving is atrocious and before too long Martin’s fears become real life as the van careens out of control and over the edge of the cliff. After a long, bumpy tumble to the bottom, darkness descends and Martin knows no more.That is until he wakes up to a bright light. So bright he can see nothing of his surroundings. He sets off in search of anything and gradually hears voices ahead. He draws closer and eventually enters a huge crowd of people milling around in a rough line.When he sees a familiar face, relief rushes through him. Vee explains the situation, and even though he scoffs at her idea, he starts to believe.They died in the crash. They’re all dead, Everyone here is.Vee drags him over to Archie and Gary and the four of them join the end of the line. As the line shortens they can see the “pearly gates”, except they’re golden and they stretch upward as far as the eye can see. One by one people are called and they enter.Finally, they are the only ones left. When the door opens, instead of being called in, a hand reaches out and hangs a sign on the door and closes it again.Gary walks up and reads it. CLOSED FOR LUNCHThey can’t believe it and bust a gut laughing. Looks like it’s business as usual even in Heaven.Vee gets the crazy idea of trying the door, but when they do, it’s locked. Not to be denied, she digs around in her huge bag and pulls out a small bundle, which she proceeds to unroll.Lo and behold, the woman has a lock pick set and she knows how to use it. Before too long they hear the lock give and the door swings open.One by one they steal into Heaven.Can you believe it. They picked the locks to heaven!When I picture entering Heaven, I see the pearly gates and sitting outside is a little old man with a long, gray beard, checking his list, checking it twice.Never, in my wildest dreams, would I have imagined stealing into Heaven.Ella takes this idea and runs with it. I mean she tells of these amazing adventures. Her idea of Heaven is crazy, funny, and beyond imagination.You may not be too sure of the characters at first, but soon you’ll come to like them and maybe even love them. They are all flawed. Aren’t we all? That’s what made me connect with them. By the end of the story, I was totally invested in their well-being.When you follow the group into Heaven you are going to be amazed. It’s so different from what you’d expect. And a trip to Hell and an encounter with Hades leaves you roaring with laughter and wanting to visit.This delightful tale makes you stop and think. Makes you want to be a little bit kinder to your fellow man. We are all in this big thing called LIFE together.And the ending, ooh it’s a goodie! Don’t get me wrong. The author wraps it up nicely, but the door is left open for a whole lot more. Can’t wait to read Martin Little Takes Epic Action – Book Two.My rating went from a 4 to a 5 halfway through the story.They stole Heaven and my heart!

    Review of “Martin Little, Resurrected”, by Ella Medler Martin Little is an all-around expert—at losing. Just ask him. His mother is not shy at showing her disappointment in him, his sister finds him a complete burden, and he can’t seem to hold a job for very long.As in life, so in the afterlife, which he gets to without any warning at all. A few hours in the slammer for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, a jailbreak, and – piff! – life is over. The only thing that makes it all worthwhile is a young lady he meets while in the drunk tank. She is also the only reason for following his new friends through such adventures as breaking into Heaven, sprouting wings without a permit, and hacking into Eternity’s computer database.Along the way, he meets various and assorted heavenly celebrities, be they Christian, Greek, Norse, or Disney (yes, you read that right). What is even more astonishing is to find that the Head Honcho, Cronus, is anything but a leader. Somehow that title was wrested from him. Martin finds the reason behind the switch from Deity to Bureaucracy, which leads the group even further afield. It’s a crazy ride, from Heaven to Hades and back again, as everyone in Martin’s circle finds, and loses, and finds, their reasons for existing.What a refreshing, fun read this was! There are more twists and turns in this book than there are red-plush corridors in the halls of Heaven! At least, the Heaven in Ms. Medler’s take on the place. So many fun, memorable characters. So much going on!The biggest thing, though, and really the best-written, is the change that comes over Martin. He whinges so much about how awful he is, and how it is better if he just disappears, that you find yourself wanting to scream, “Just get over yourself already!”Then you gradually realize—he has! He just doesn’t know it! It’s so subtle—and it’s so joyful when he finds it out himself! The ending was a really wonderful, feel-good one…and one that could not have gone any other way, if there are gods in charge.And in Ms. Medler’s Heaven, there might not have been. The IT guys could have really messed it up.

    I really enjoyed the concept of this book but many of the sentences were worded in such a way they left me confused. I also had a hard time identifying with the main character Martin. He was so weak and full of self-pity, it really bothered me and I had a hard time imagining him as a male, he struck me more as a female or possibly an extremely juvenile young male. He did redeem himself somewhat when I considered all his actions throughout the novel, but he certainly wasn't my favourite character. I loved the take on such different views of heaven and hell and other key players in mythology and there were adorably charming details I enjoyed reading about, like wing colour and loss of feathers. All in all, it was an interesting read but not one of my favourites.

    Martin Little, Resurrected is a clever and imaginative piece of fiction. I don't want to elaborate too much on the plot for fear of introducing a spoiler, but suffice it to say that the writer does a wonderful job of grabbing the reader from the start and not letting go. The journey includes colorful characters--each loveably flawed--for whom you'll enthusiastically root, and a well-paced story that will keep you guessing at its direction. The writing is sharp and humorously mocks the bureaucracy of everyday life. Fans of fun, witty, and quirky reads will especially enjoy this novel.
