Funny, not Christopher Moore's best and some may find the ending disappointing, but it does have Moore's classic observations:

--regarding the main character's yuppie condo complex
"I thought children were not allowed?" "Those are Mrs. Smiths grandchildren, they are just visiting for the day and she filled out all the necessary forms."

--Regarding Sam's meeting with Nubis, the Egyptian Jackal God of the Dead, "How was he suppose to handle a neurotic canine god of the underworld."

--"Sam thought his life had become the equivalent of a road runner cartoon, especially when he was picked up by a cab from the ACME taxi company."

--The fact that Sam's spirit guide turns out to be a fat, white guy selling vaccuum cleaners.

--The telling of "ancient" Native American stories with a modern spin.

I know I am not doing this justice, I will have to look back and add some of the better lines I remember!
