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
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.
Hysterical.... I would read it again and again.
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.
