The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror, Version 2.0 by Christopher Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In one word: hilarious!! This was the third Christopher Moore book I have read and it certainly didn't disappoint. If you love those emotional and sappy Christmas books, this is definitely not for you. This is the Author's Warning: "If you're buying this book as a gift for your grandma or a kid, you should be aware tht it contains cusswords as well as tasteful depections of cannibalism and people in their forties having sex. Don't blame me. I told you." Yep, that about sums it up.
The story takes place in sunny Pine Cove, California. Pine Cove is a small town where everyone knows everyone. Seems like the town is made up mostly of lunatics. A little boy witnesses Santa being killed and makes a wish to have Santa alive again so that he can have a good Christmas. The "stupidest" angel visits Pine Cove in order to grant the boy his wish and it all goes wrong . . . . I enjoyed the many laughs and actually enjoyed the zombies (I think my best friend's love for zombies is wearing off on me). The book was funny, witty, and crude. A Christmas story like no other!!
