You Suck: A Love Story by Christopher Moore

I haven’t done a book review in a while, but having just finished You Suck: A Love Story, I had to write a few sentences about it.  While I don’t think it’s nearly as good as A Dirty Job, or Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal, Moore’s irreverent writing is still a hoot.  If you haven’t experienced Moore’s off-beat humor, my favorite passage from the book is a great example:

“But apparently, the entire fucking country shuts down on Christmas, slammed under the oppressive iron fist of the baby Jesus, so out of nine Starbucks we try, all are closed.”

It’s a very quick read and a lot of fun.  If you’re looking for your first Moore experience, though, I’d start with A Dirty Job or Lamb.

  1. The first Christopher Moore book that must be read is Lamb. You can’t start anywhere else. Lamb sets the table for the brilliance that is Christopher Moore. Everything else is dessert.
