Joe Ledger's cockiness is so over the top it is hilarious. Come on Joe, let the guy finish his sentence before you smash his teeth in. I was very sad that John Smith did not make it through this one. Why was he the only one everyone refers to by his full name? Awesome story concept. I thought the story for King of Plagues was great, this one was even better. The vampires all looked like Baraka from Mortal Kombat to me for some reason. I can't wait for the next book.(less)

When I try to contain such fits, I just shake in place, probably looking even stupider.
Lamb is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I am not religious at all. The only part of the Bible I've actually read is Revelations. So I don't know much. I recognized names and places but they didn't mean anything to me. What this means is that the story told in Lamb will slowly turn into historic fact in my head, much like Rufus the 13th apostle is real thanks to Kevin Smith's Dogma.
The story telling was brilliant. The characters were all uniquely loveable. There's Thomas and his invisible twin Thomas 2. John the Baptist. Bartholomew and his puppy disciples. The Wise Men. Mary Magdalene. The room service waiter named Jesus. The kind centurion captain, Gaius Justus Gallicus. Rumi who lived in a pit. And my favourite Raziel, the dim angel who wanted to meet Spider-Man.
Mr. Moore also revealed many significant facts not generally known. Biff invented such things as matches and sarcasm. Raziel may have been the alpha dumb blonde. Jesus knew Kung Fu. And so much more.
I'll just end here with a few lines that had me howling on the bus:
"It's a yeti," said Gaspar from behind me, obviously having been roused from his trance. "An abominable snowman." "This is what happens when you fuck a sheep!?" I exclaimed. "Not an abomination," Josh said, "abominable." (less)
