OK - I only have 2 thumbs but if I did have an extra one I would certainly give this book all 3 of them. I adore Christopher Moore's writing style - clever, snarky, satirical, a bit vulgar, whimsical - just perfectly gruesomely delicious! If you've read any of his other books you'll probably recognize some of the characters and places - but the adventures are new and the twists are sure to delight even the most cynical among us. I read this one about a year before I listened to it - and I'm sure I'll be coming back for another run-through in the future. Really Good!!
The story line was OK, but the narrartor left a lot to be desired. I felt like the author had no idea what to do with the characters or story at the end of the book. Pretty lame ending. Kill everybody off poof, story over.
I typically do not like "fantasy" type books, but the writing and development of the characters in this book is a joy. Beyond that, Fisher Steven's narration of this book is quite frankly the best I have ever heard. He puts a different voice to each character and does a remarkable job.
I purchased this book because I am looking for new authors to enjoy. Enjoy I did. I wasn't really reading what this book was about, and of course, got a suprise with the content! just goes to show, you can once in a while pick a book blindly and love it. Very funny, content was handled well, not scary but facinating. Mr. Moore will sell another book to me. Recommend for the light side of scary! funny funny funny
Christopher Moore's wicked and twisted sense of humor is right up my alley. I have only read two other books by him (before this one) but now, I'm going to have to get them all!
I'm not sure why this book is so popular with audible listeners. I found it weird and not well written.
Once again Christopher Moore has delivered a funny,clever and totally believale book about a dark topic. Well developed plot and characters. This book was fun to listen too.
Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
I am so pleased Christopher Moore is slightly askew. Because he's not normal he writes the most entertaining books around. "A Dirty Job" is just the latest in what are some the most surprisingly unusual and funny books I've had the complete pleasure to read. Add to that a fabulous job by the narrator and this is just a delight. Don't expect normal, just enjoy.
It is very hard to give this book ONE star--but I did not see an alternative. I am so tired of the so-called supernatural being used with mortals with "no story" to back it up. What a waste of credit and money.
