I am a big Christopher Moore fan and this book is my favorite. It is funny, sad, and scary all at once. This is my number one recommend to date.
I love the narrator! Don't know how to describe the book - at times I felt like I was getting a glimpse of what it would be like to be "crazy", and other times I felt like I was reading a sci-fi book. It has sarcastic humor which I found funny. It does have swearing if that bothers you. If you like sci- fi then I'd recommend this book.
Not certain what I was expecting, but this was completely different. Not sure I would have continued reading it in book form, but as an audiobook it came to life with the vocalizations of each character. I was constantly being surprised and often broke into sustained laughter as the hero worked through each trial.
I loved this book, it's silly and outlandish which is exactly what I need on my daily commute or at the gym.
Also the narrator Fisher Stevens does a great job of doing the voices - It really helped me visualizing the crazy Goth shop assistant and stoned ex-cop characters
He was a little to chic windy or something for my taste. The book itself was ok, the facts introduced early on don't hold up later in the book. So, its a bit inconsistent. Get past that and you have a decent listen ahead.
I laughed through the entire book. I didn't know what to expect, but I am now a fan. He twists horror to be very funny. You want to have a laugh, download this book. You'll love it!
I just loved this book. It made me laugh from beginning to end, and the plot is nothing if not original! Somehow I found all the supernatural goings ons more credible because the book is set in San Francisco, and picks up on the zaniness and tendency towards eccentrics and strong characters in that city. One flaw I do want to point out is the racism -- per this book Chinese Americans don't just eat pet dogs but any pet they can find. Aside from that, enjoy . . . I'm sorry this book ended.
This book was laugh out loud funny at times. The author's tone is something like Nick Hornby's, salted with a bit of Chris Rock. The plot line is more of a fantasy than either of those two write, but that is a vehicle for some good comedy. As with Rock and Hornby, the humor may strike guys more than women, and it is not for young kids.
The narrator does a fantastic job catching different accents and delivering the punch lines.
Loved Lamb. Applaud even louder for A Dirty Job. Found the character development outstanding. Very witty, with great plot twists. Understand Christopher Columbus of 1492 Productions (directed a couple of Harry Potter Movies) has the movie rights. Can't wait to see the movie if/when it comes out.
