Book Blog #2: Christopher Moore
In my previous Book Blog I said I was trying to re-read New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. Well, I tried and just couldn't get into it. I think after seeing the Twilight film adaptation and being disappointed with it, my passion and interest for the series died along with Robert Pattinson's ability to have any sort of privacy.
Now, I'm starting to read A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. Moore is one of my favorite authors of all time and is also very underrated. I read Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, about a year and a half ago and have been a fan of his ever since.
Moore usually writes satirically whether it be about bloodsucking vampires or King Lear in Medieval Times. His comedic timing and dry humor along with his fantastic story telling ability is what makes Moore one of the best current authors.
His newest novel is Fool and has been getting really great reviews however, I'd start with Lamb and then A Dirty Job.
