Enoch by Alton Gansky

It's safe to say that Enoch was everything I expected it to be. Alton Gansky failed to surprise me. Perhaps if this was your first Gansky book, it would be interesting to you, but after reading all his other books, I found this one to be less interesting. The problem is Alton's made himself no longer special because of his lack of censorship.
The plot is self-explanatory: Enoch suddenly appears on earth, except that the most powerful New Age female reverend is trying to own him. Enoch jumps around the country preforming miracles and wowing everyone with his knowledge. But through all this, he remains ever perfect.
I can't really put my finger on any good characters. There are many unnecessary ones, including his lame and obvious attempt at a romantic subplot.
When I heard about Enoch and read its description, I thought, This is the all the same, and I was right. Maybe if Gansky had eliminated the Madison Glenn series, the Perry Sachs series, Terminal Justice, Tarnished Image, Marked for Mercy, and A Small Dose of Murder, this would have been more special to me.
Like I said, you may find it interesting, but I did not.
