    What is not to love about a book that has a pot smoking law official married to a crazy woman who runs around naked with a broad sword, brain sucking zombies lead by Santa who want to go shopping at IKEA, incompetent arc angel who likes snickers, and a talking fruit bat I found the story to be very entertaining with several laugh out loud points I listened to it on tape I d recommend this book to anyone who can just let go of reality and enjoy a tale.

    Kitchen sink wackiness and a troop of tropes parade through a book not half as hilarious as I had hoped it would be In a barely fictional California coastal town that s about two hours from where I live and, to the writer s credit, I feel pretty sure I ve been there the locals of a sleepy tourist town prepare for Christmas A handful of middle aged divorcees, lonesome loners, curmudgeons, and crazies bitch and bumble their way through a hair andraising couple of days A celestial visi Kitchen sink wackiness and a troop of tropes parade through a book not half as hilarious as I had hoped it would be In a barely fictional California coastal town that s about two hours from where I live and, to the writer s credit, I feel pretty sure I ve been there the locals of a sleepy tourist town prepare for Christmas A handful of middle aged divorcees, lonesome loners, curmudgeons, and crazies bitch and bumble their way through a hair andraising couple of days A celestial visitor scares the bejesus out of the local constable, who has got his hands full sorting out a town s worth of mischief and mayhem Do all of Christopher Moore s books include angels and an undercurrent of Christianity I ve only read two Moores so far, but I m two for two on the jesus and god topic I should look for titles without gospel and angel in them So, that s on me.This isn t as funny as I d hoped In fact, neither of his books lived up to the hype I had built up after reading the reviews I got a snort or two out of The Stupidest Angel, but generally I find his humor to be dated and easy, as in, he goes for the easy gag Not that I could do better All in all, there were a few insightful satirical jabs, but not enough to make me feel it was worth the read

    This is another Christopher Moore book I have enjoyed reading, and they have all been hilarious.Very funny and it had that Christopher Moore kookiness, even some returns of fun characters If you like zombies, you may like this.But this is not one that I would recommend to begin reading his works If you have never read any of his books try

    The Stupidest Angel A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror was my first Christopher Moore novel This novel is not the type of book I normally read The plot was quite thin but there were tons of funny scenes that made me giggle and snicker it wasn t funny enough to make me laugh out loud However I got bored with this book pretty quickly The humour in this book is very in your face type humour The humour was just so repetitive that it started to get on my nerves after a while and the jo The Stupidest Angel A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror was my first Christopher Moore novel This novel is not the type of book I normally read The plot was quite thin but there were tons of funny scenes that made me giggle and snicker it wasn t funny enough to make me laugh out loud However I got bored with this book pretty quickly The humour in this book is very in your face type humour The humour was just so repetitive that it started to get on my nerves after a while and the jokes just stopped being funny I didn t like the second half of the book as it just got too far fetched and stupid I really struggled to finish it I don t think this sort of book is for everyone and I m not sure that I ll ever read another book by Christopher Moore He s the type of author I would get bored of very easily If you like movies like Scary Movie, Date Movie and Epic Movie then you ll probably like this book 2 stars

    Its utterly rediculous, but its also laugh out loud FUNNY Im listening on audio book and I ve never enjoyed doing laundryIts totally odd ball, irreverent, immature, deviously clever and just plain silly, as are most of Moore s books It doesn t matter if you find the story believeable its TOO FUNNY for me to care C mon, washed up female battle warrior cult movie star whos totally nuts in a friendly crazy neighbor sort of way married to pot smoking sherrif DEA helicopeter subcontrac Its utterly rediculous, but its also laugh out loud FUNNY Im listening on audio book and I ve never enjoyed doing laundryIts totally odd ball, irreverent, immature, deviously clever and just plain silly, as are most of Moore s books It doesn t matter if you find the story believeable its TOO FUNNY for me to care C mon, washed up female battle warrior cult movie star whos totally nuts in a friendly crazy neighbor sort of way married to pot smoking sherrif DEA helicopeter subcontractor helps woman he s never met clean up a crime scene, and introduces her to his pet fruit bat Oh, yeah, and then there is the stupidest angel, and the sherrif s biologist friend who s doing some pretty wierd stuff with conditioning rats that just might work on him too something about batteries and electrodes and underwear models a little goy kid and his ruminations on whos got better holidays, and what s gonna get him on the bad list at the north pole Kinda throws believable out the window before you even start the book Its not something you d want to discuss with the church book club, no worse than your average cable stand up from a vulgarity standpoint and much funnier than most I ve been laughing for the last 3 hours straight Its silly, go with it

    I just picked this book for our book club s December read but couldn t wait until December to read it I guess you can say that a little Christmas mayhem is good for any time of the year And if you think Christmas tales are rather lame, peruse this single paragraph at the beginning of the novel.In another Christmas story, Dale Pearson, evil developer, self absorbed woman hater, and seemingly unredeemable curmudgeon, might be visited in the night by a series of ghosts who, by showing him bleak v I just picked this book for our book club s December read but couldn t wait until December to read it I guess you can say that a little Christmas mayhem is good for any time of the year And if you think Christmas tales are rather lame, peruse this single paragraph at the beginning of the novel.In another Christmas story, Dale Pearson, evil developer, self absorbed woman hater, and seemingly unredeemable curmudgeon, might be visited in the night by a series of ghosts who, by showing him bleak visions of Christmas future, past, and present, would bring about in him a change to generosity, kindness, and a general warmth toward his fellow man But this is not that kind of Christmas story, so here in not too many pages, someone is going to dispatch the miserable son of a bitch with a shovel That s the spirit of Christmas yet to come in these parts Ho, ho, ho The Stupidest Angel is anything but the normal Christmas tale Christopher Moore has revived the residents of Pine Cove, and some other characters from his other novels, with all their silliness and insanity and added an angel that is one part the Terminator and two part Jim Carry from Dumb and Dumber This rather short novel hasone liners than a Henny Youngman convention andlaughs than a barrel of tea party congressmen I especially loved the return of Roberto T Fruitbat from Island of the Sequined Love Nun but you do not need to have read any of Moore s other novels to enjoy this one Put this on your Christmas list and hope someone doesn t kill Santa Claus before December

    There s nothingto say here really I m throwing in the towel I am on disc 3 and have been so completely zoned out I feel like I may have to go all the way back to the beginning I don t know if I m just distracted, completely humorless or falling into another slump but this book could not entertain me and I have far too many others sitting here to force it upon myself The angel is indeed stupid as promised but so are most of the other characters and there are MANY of them and it s There s nothingto say here really I m throwing in the towel I am on disc 3 and have been so completely zoned out I feel like I may have to go all the way back to the beginning I don t know if I m just distracted, completely humorless or falling into another slump but this book could not entertain me and I have far too many others sitting here to force it upon myself The angel is indeed stupid as promised but so are most of the other characters and there are MANY of them and it s all a little too wacky zany for my current pissy mood

    3.5 stars.This really had some potential, and some of the stuff was downright hilarious But it did seem to run a bit long at times Still, Christopher Moore is a funny dude and I ll readof his stuff.Plus, the audio was dead on The narrator, Tony Roberts, had a great voice for narration and nailed the characters His delivery of Moore s punchlines was spot on too.
