A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore (5 stars)

This was my first Christopher Moore book and it felt just like reading Neil Gaiman and/or Terry Pratchett. And how does that feel? Well, it takes a subject that is both fanciful and dark and makes you laugh out loud at the absurdities that are thrown in for fun. I don’t mean to say that Mr. Moore doesn’t have his own style, but it is very similar to Gaiman and Pratchett and flawlessly so.

There are a great many things I liked about this book and every one of them would spoil the magic of the story if I told you about it. If you like Mythos (I’m not sure what else to call legends about gods) and dark humor don’t pass this one up!
