Teeheehee.

I love Christopher Moore's books. There are none better when I need cheering up! It's interesting how he uses the same characters again and again.

This was a light, easy read that almost had a slap-stick comedy feel to it. It did start out a little slow but it picked up about half-way through. I do have to say though, that I've like his other books that I've read better than this one. I also found out, after reading it, that a bunch of characters were from some of his books that I haven't gotten around to reading yet, so this one should be read after you've read:

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove
Practical Demon-Keeping
Island of the Sequined Love Nun

Although, it's only if you like reading about characters to get that nostalgic feeling. I did fine without it.

Overall, it's pretty funny and there were a few moments where I'd get a good laugh out.

A new spin on vulgarity. Otherwise, this author has a few screws loose and the story is very engaging. Hooks you in and is hard to put down.

A quick read. Highly entertaining! A bizarre Christmas tale with the darker side of human nature and some far-fetched storytelling, but some of the funniest lines I've ever read. Don't expect to take it seriously in any way and don't count on it to be a heartwarming tale to put you in the Christmas spirit. Good laugh-out-loud fun, though.

Short, but very funny! I really think Christopher Moore is best enjoyed out loud, read by a good narrator. And this fits the bill perfectly! I especially loved Molly The Warrior Babe! And the dog, and the bat, and Theo....

But as a quick warning: It seems there are a few, very angry people who mistakenly guessed that this would be a family-with-young-kids-friendly story. This is a grown-up, dark and twisted comedy, not a sweetsy religious book for children! If you like the t.v. show South Park, then this book might be for you! Otherwise parents should pre-screen this one!

Very strangely funny book. The first two chapters were a bit hard to read but by the third I was hooked.

May not be the stupidest book I've ever read, but comes close. Just not my cuppa, I guess. Even though I REALLY disliked it, I found myself compelled to finish it. I haven't a clue why I did so.

Christopher Moore is one of my favorite authors and this might be my favorite book by him.
The Stupidest Angel is quirky, raucous and hysterical. I laughed out loud and drove my husband crazy reading so many funny parts to him, despite the fact that this was the first Christopher Moore book I ever read and I missed all the great inside jokes from all the characters that appeared in previous books. So so funny and the unrepentantly off, off-beat and irreverent. Seriously; Zombie Santa. How can you go wrong with that? If you want a really different Christmas story and enjoy wacky humor of the endearingly weird kind, I think you will love; The Stupidest Angel.

Before I say anything else, Ive gotta say that I loved every single one of these characters. And although the other book by Moore Id read ("A Dirty Job") was an enjoyable ride until the end which was a little eh, this one was fully enjoyable the entire way through. There were times when the laughter just bubbled out of me and startled my co-worker when I read during lunch in the lunchroom. It came to a point where she actually said, Okay...is it REALLY that funny? so I read her a part, completely out of context, and she was laughing and wrote it on her own to read list. Be warned, however: this book is completely irreverent. And the angel in it is REALLY stupid. Roberto, the fruit bat, however? Total win.

This is a work of genius...This is a masterpeice of modern literature...If Will Shakespeare were alive...This would make him weep tears of regret that he could not write such meaninful prose such as this...IKEA loving zombies...Angels that love candy bars...Sword weilding chicks with washed up Hollywood careers...This book has it ALL and then some...Seriously, I enjoyed this book way more than I should have...It's a great read if you just want mind candy and to unwind from a stressful day...Christopher Moore is my favorite author and I just can't tell you how much I enjoy his zany sense of humor...Thanks Mr. Moore for providing a getaway from the hassles of life...

Another tale set in Pine Cove, California, this one at Christmastime. Several singular bizarre incidents combine together to set off a chain of events that literally leaves you howling on the floor with laughter. Well...maybe just on the couch, but I NEARLY fell off I laughed so hard. I've found Moore's books to be somewhat hit or miss, but this one is definitely a hit. I really like the crazy, outlandish Pine Cove clan.

Oh, this was a hysterical book! I definitely laughed out loud multiple times as I read this! I really enjoy Christopher Moore's writing style and his sense of humour - and this book is no exception! It was a funny Christmas story bringing back characters from his other books. It was fun, fast and funny!

This is one of the strangest and funniest little books I've read all year. It's definitely different, and if you have a dark sense of humor, then you will enjoy it.

This book, although sometimes funny, was just nasty. I stopped reading it because of the sexual over tones which were distasteful. Not for me.

How can you not love a book with a talking fruit bat, bad santa and a warrior princess in converse tennis shoes?

Definitely a strange story, but very funny. It's not my favorite Moore book...Fluke was my favorite. It was sometimes too raunchy for me, but only in small spurts, so I got through it ok and enjoyed the overall storyline. Moore's sarcasm is great!

What a not made for tv Christmas story! Loved it. You will not see where any of this is going till the very end. Great to get an angels perspective on the birth of Christ and all that went into getting it right. Funny well developed characters, some from previous books but you can read just this. You gotta love the way some in the small town celebrate the holiday and how they try and make sure everyone has a good one. Lots of swearing and language so be prepared but still really funny! The reading was so well done!

A town that is full of crazies to begin with get's sent an angel to grant the Christmas wish of a young boy. The angel who gets the job is a little bonkers himself and...well more chaos ensues as the angel tries to give the child what he wants.

The book is pure silliness which seems to be a theme of Moore books and it is why I like them but sometimes too much silliness can bore a person. Like the saying " You can't have too much a good thing".

I have been recommended The Stupidest Angel many times over the years. Many have said that this is author Christopher Moore's best book. It is the third book I have read by him and I have to said it is in third place for me. I like A Dirty Job and then You Suck for first and second.

Although it is not my favorite Moore book I still like his humor even if sometimes it goes a little too far. I will read more of his books because I do enjoy the characters.

You have to be ready for this author's brand of sarcasm when you read this book. I wasn't. However, since I hadn't read his work previously I plowed ahead. Maybe it's because he focuses on Christmas which is special to me. It's hard to go from the joy and happiness of the season to zombies, weird people and strange situations. After all, it's time to celebrate and enjoy those you love. Ah, well, I finished it. That's something.

YUCK!!! I loved lamb, the writing was funny, the story great, but this was no where near it. This story went on forever, it was boring, it made no sense it made you want to read really really fast so you would be done. YUCK!
