So, I thought I would try a new author. The story was good, not great, but enjoyable. The narration was horrible! The guy sounded like Casey Kasem, and it got old real fast. The story made me keep listening but I will never by a book with this narrator again.
My fourth Moore, and not his best. I bought it for comic relief, but no guffaws here--droll, no more. I've seen the pieces before: the California coastal town with its cast of characters, the Demon from Hell who blends the ancient with American pop culture (think the stupid angel in Lamb), etc. A too-tidy ending. Mildly amusing, no more.
A good beginning to Moore's style. Very funny. Story lacks form in the middle.
Yes, Funny lite reading.
No, But he was great.
This book's odd cast of characters are likeable and the lighthearted and absurd plot is an easy and entertaining read.
Wyman is my favorite performer - there are a lot of characters in this story and his voices are unique enough that it doesn't get confusing. His demon voice is the best!
I liked it. Maybe in the top 5 of my Christopher Moore "likes." :-) I would recommend this one.
It kept me entertained for the time I needed to kill...Christopher Moore is always a good read, but some of his others are better.
As always moore is hilarious, edgy and fun. Dont miss this book or for that matter any christopher moore books. Laugh out loud funny.
I listened to four Chris Moore books prior to this Demonkeeping...can you tell I like the guy? Once again he weaves an unimaginable tale of kooky, sometimes creepy and definitely original characters. The reader does a great job of stamping each of them with a distinctive voice. Spoiler: there is a nice ending...but as a Moore fan you would expect it. Due to shorter length Demonkeeping is a good intro to the author and a nice pick me up if you're looking for some familiar frivolity. Some PG-13+ but nothing terrible.
Christopher Moore is the king of Satire in my opinion. If you want to laugh read his books.
