Media Guy: God Blesses Media, but not Media Professionals showcases the life of journalist Johnny, also known as Media Guy. Media Guy does not give up, even when things don’t go well. He works for USFTV - United States Future Television. Media Guy’s unconventional hands-on approach to journalism was both a gift and a pain at the same time. His way of working got him into hot water many times with his editor-in-chief, who fired him many times. However, his boss always rehired him as he was the best news reporter/journalist at the firm. Media Guy always landed on his feet, literally and figuratively. For example, when he was covering the story on the ethnic war among the primitive savages, the savages practically infiltrated and destroyed the media station. Media Guy sought refuge on the top of the satellite dish of the building. His boss fired him again in a fit of rage yet Media Guy won the prize for the funniest journalist, along with a cheque for one hundred thousand dollars!

Media Guy: God Blesses Media, but not Media Professionals by Aleksandar Krzavac is a fast paced novel with a comical slant. The language used is colloquial and is quite easy to understand. The standard of English is not always correct, but it provides a bit of comic relief to match the antics of the main character. I love the persistent spirit of the main character. He chose not to give up, even when he was without job prospects. He aggressively pursued his goal of becoming the best journalist ever. This theme of perseverance is a pervasive one throughout the novel. I love the fact that even though the person’s actions were viewed as scandalous in one person’s eyes, he was seen in a totally different light by others. This spoke volumes to me because in life we too might be overlooked for a promotion or other position. We cannot always foresee another door of opportunity opening soon for us. I totally disagree with the title of the novel. In the plot, God does bless media personnel but not in the way that man expects. This book is a good read and I thoroughly recommend it to all readers.
