Lusting for Moore

If you've never read Chris Moore, prepare to get hooked! That is, if you're not easily offended by mockery of the religious right,not put off by psychiatric humor, don't mind sympathizing with aging B-movie actresses, and feel OK reading about sex between the latter and a huge green sea reptile named Steve. A reluctant N. California tourist town goes cold turkey on their antidepressants and is soon after visited by the above mentioned Steve, who's attracted to low seratonin levels and, apparently, gas trucks. I could picture this as a movie-that is if the Coen brothers took acid and decided to redo 50's Japanese horror films, this time in 2000 California. Loved the book! Loved the humor, the details, the characters.

I guess if you're into ridiculous, it's ok.

Ok, heard this guy was funny, funny and more funny. I can't even get into this. Just ridiculous. If you're going to read this, just get a comic book instead.

    A fun read

    I picked up this book for a change of pace. It did not disappoint. It was funny, demented and a quick read. The characters were interesting and the story line bizarre, but kept you interested up until the end. I plan to read more from this author.

    A true ANTI-depressant! Funny stuff!!

    Christopher Moore is the funniest writer alive. Plain and simple. The is the fourth novel of his that I've read and have loved them all. Here, the charcaters are insanely hilarious yet somehow believeable. Remarkably crazy happenings that never make you scratch your head but mighht make you wet yourself. So, so funny! Great!

    Make someones day give them this book to make them laugh.

    One of my friends gave me this book which is not my typical read - I couldn't help but laugh at half the stuff in the book. Mind you the deaths/murders portrayed are not something to laugh at but otherwise WOW. Each character has their own quirks/problems that you can sympathize/relate to. Essentially the title explains the main character.
