Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

Fofo’s #CBR4 Review #13: Lamb by Christopher Moore

Target: Christopher Moore’s Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal. 

Profile: Comic Fantasy, Absurdist Literature, Religious Fiction?

There’s something to be said about going into a book expecting to hate it.  A little bias can make a mediocre story somewhat enjoyable, or a good book seem great.  Christopher Moore should thank his publicists for being moronic idiots.  The cover of Lamb is positively coated in critic reviews hailing him as the new voice of comic absurdism; the second coming of Vonnegut.  But all you have to do is read the back cover to see that the comparison is inapt at best.  So I went into Lamb prepared to hate every stagnant syllable.  Let’s be clear.  It’s not Vonnegut by any stretch of the imagination.  But it isn’t bad.
