Hm. Somehow I'm unsure about this Moore novel. Sure, there is the typical humour and you can find awesome quotes. It's a diverting read, and not too long. But somehow, I'm still disappointed. The characters remain vacuous and I never got a feeling for the setting itself. On the other hand, I have hifh standards for Christopher Moore. So: Read Fool or Bible according to Biff first if you want to read his best works. But if you search for some time filler and light entertainment, this novel serves you pretty well.
