Wow did this suck. The disjointed plot's major conflict couldn't get me to invest and the characters were boring...which would have been fine if the book lived up to the humor promised in other reviews.
That's not to say I'm not a fan of this brand of humor. Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Robert Aspin, Neil Gaiman, Kurt Vonnegut, and their ilk were mother's milk to me growing up. You can tell this book aspires to it, but didn't quite reach it.
I will say this, even those other authors I cited turned in some lame work, and while I think this is one of Chris Moore's strikeouts, I've also read two of his home runs. I highly recommend those two other books: 'A Dirty Job' and 'Fluke'.
This is not a particularly funny book. It's a little humorous but it's more of a bleak adventure with some irreverence. It's a good story, but might be a disappointment if your expecting the usual CM goofiness.
Great story with a good ending. Christopher Moore is my favorite author. His books make me laugh and I leave feeling happy but there is enough action that I stay interested.
i loove great books especially mystery and suspense and gregg hurwitz
Unfortunately this book that not impress me like a dirty job did, it was actually the reason why purchased this but I feel as though I wasted my time.
