Christmas crept into Pine Cove like a creeping Christmas thing dragging garland, ribbon, and sleigh bells, oozing eggnog, reeking of pine, and threatening festive doom like a cold sore under the mistletoe Twas the night okay, like the week before Christmas, and all through the tiny community of Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, andChristmas crept into Pine Cove like a creeping Christmas thing dragging garland, ribbon, and sleigh bells, oozing eggnog, reeking of pine, and threatening festive doom like a cold sore under the mistletoe Twas the night okay, like the week before Christmas, and all through the tiny community of Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit It is the hap hap happiest time of the year, after all.But not everybody is feeling the joy Little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a holiday miracle No, he s not on his deathbed no, his dog hasn t run away from home But Josh is sure that he saw Santa take a shovel to the head, and now the seven year old has only one prayer Please, Santa, come back from the dead.But hold on There s an angel waiting in the wings Wings, get it It s none other than the Archangel Raziel come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs granting Unfortunately, our angel s not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch, and before you can say Kris Kringle, he s botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen.Only Christopher Moore, the man who brought you the outrageous lost gospel Lamb and the hysterical fish tale Fluke could have devised a new holiday classic that tugs at the heartstrings and serves up a healthy slice of fruitcake to boot.Move over, Charles Dickens it s Christopher Moore time.

What is not to love about a book that has a pot smoking law official married to a crazy woman who runs around naked with a broad sword, brain sucking zombies lead by Santa who want to go shopping at IKEA, incompetent arc angel who likes snickers, and a talking fruit bat I found the story to be very entertaining with several laugh out loud points I listened to it on tape I d recommend this book to anyone who can just let go of reality and enjoy a tale.

Kitchen sink wackiness and a troop of tropes parade through a book not half as hilarious as I hoped In a barely fictional California coastal town that s about two hours from where I live and, to the writer s credit, I feel pretty sure I ve been there the locals of a sleepy tourist town prepare for Christmas A handful of middle aged divorcees, lonesome loners, curmudgeons, and crazies bitch and bumble their way through a hair and raising couple days A celestial visitor scares the bejesus out of [...]

This is another Christopher Moore book I have enjoyed reading, and they have all been hilarious.Very funny and it had that Christopher Moore kookiness, even some returns of fun characters If you like zombies, you may like this.But this is not one that I would recommend to begin reading his works If you have never read any of his books try Lamb The Gospel According to Biff, Christ s Childhood Pal or A Dirty Job first.Still pretty good.

The Stupidest Angel A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror was my first Christopher Moore novel This novel is not the type of book I normally read The plot was quite thin but there were tons of funny scenes that made me giggle and snicker it wasn t funny enough to make me laugh out loud However I got bored with this book pretty quickly The humour in this book is very in your face type humour The humour was just so repetitive that it started to get on my nerves after a while and the jokes just s [...]

There s nothing to say here really I m throwing in the towel I am on disc 3 and have been so completely zoned out I feel like I may have to go all the way back to the beginning I don t know if I m just distracted, completely humorless or falling into another slump but this book could not entertain me and I have far too many others sitting here to force it upon myself The angel is indeed stupid as promised but so are most of the other characters and there are MANY of them and it s all a little t [...]

I just picked this book for our book club s December read but couldn t wait until December to read it I guess you can say that a little Christmas mayhem is good for any time of the year And if you think Christmas tales are rather lame, peruse this single paragraph at the beginning of the novel.In another Christmas story, Dale Pearson, evil developer, self absorbed woman hater, and seemingly unredeemable curmudgeon, might be visited in the night by a series of ghosts who, by showing him bleak vis [...]

Its utterly rediculous, but its also laugh out loud FUNNY Im listening on audio book and I ve never enjoyed doing laundry Its totally odd ball, irreverent, immature, deviously clever and just plain silly, as are most of Moore s books It doesn t matter if you find the story believeable its TOO FUNNY for me to care C mon, washed up female battle warrior cult movie star whos totally nuts in a friendly crazy neighbor sort of way married to pot smoking sherrif DEA helicopeter subcontractor helps wom [...]

3 stars It starts weak, you know that snarky humour that can wear thin real fast Then he switches to crude Crude done well can be hilarious and Moore s a master It s a bizarre story packed with quirky characters, an action packed little page turner Throw in a cemetery full of gossipy dead people, a murder, an archangel on a mission, zombies and a fruit bat It s even got a few decent though admittedly twisted love interests My favorite the pot addicted cop and his warrior babe wife a loveable swo [...]

3.5 stars.This really had some potential, and some of the stuff was downright hilarious But it did seem to run a bit long at times Still, Christopher Moore is a funny dude and I ll read of his stuff.Plus, the audio was dead on The narrator, Tony Roberts, had a great voice for narration and nailed the characters His delivery of Moore s punchlines was spot on too.

I don t think a book has made me laugh this much since Good Omens The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch I want to be the Warrior Babe of the Outland and fight zombies who want to eat brains and go to IKEA I saw the movie Zombieland this past weekend and that might have just put me in the right frame of mind for this book.Humor in literature is a very subjective thing What makes one person laugh his butt off is just dumb and annoying to someone else I love the humor of Connie Wi [...]

I generally enjoy Moore s comedies but this one s just too silly.Raziel, God s stupidest angel has been sent to earth to grant a Christmas miracle to a lucky child In the quaint village of Pine Cove, he meets 8 year old Joshua, a recent witness to the death of Santa actually the accidental killing of local jerk Dale, in a Santa suit, by his ex wife , who fears Christmas is lost Raziel seeks to rectify the matter by raising Santa and every other corpse in the graveyard from the dead on Christmas [...]

A dimwitted and incompetent angel loses a bet and picks a town full of zany characters in which to fulfill it Hijinks and frantic hilarity ensue I found it entertaining enough to occupy my mind while running errands Audiobook version via Audible Good performance by Tony Roberts.

Heartwarming meant ironically A stupid angel is supposed to give a child his Christmas wish The 7 year old child sees Santa getting hit with a shovel and wishes that Santa was still alive Santa comes back to life with a group of his dead friends as zombies This book had a couple of very funny scenes but in my opinion was definitely not worth the time.

How else but in a mad lib could you have a book involving an idiot angel, a pot smoking sheriff, a zombie Santa, a talking fruit bat, and Kendra, Warrior Babe of the Outland From the mind and pen of Christopher Moore, that s how This is typical Moore fare, which is to say, atypical, irreverent, and funny as hell It s a short, quick read that never takes itself the least bit seriously, and, best yet, it s a Christmas story I really hope they make a movie out of this, as is allegedly in the works [...]

The Stupidest Angel really is one crazy, twisted book This is the warning from author Christopher Moore just prior to the first chapter take heed If you re buying this book as a gift for your grandma or a kid, you should be aware that it contains cusswords as well as tasteful depictions of cannibalism and people in their forties having sex Don t blame me I told you Anyway, I did have a few laughs resulting from the freakish conversations between the undead in the graveyard, and did like Theo, th [...]

If you re sick of all the sentimental Christmas stories and looking for something a little different and have a twisted sense of humor This is the book for you My favorite scenes were when the dead people would talk to each other in the cemetery I also liked how a lot of characters were very crochety and not shy about cussing Christopher Moore is the greatest at twisted, dark humor

Christopher Moore s The Stupidest Angel A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror is another audiobook to entertain, even at 5 A.M on the commute into the city My husband and I have gotten into a habit of listening to audiobooks in the car when we travel to and from work, and when we take little road trips.Christopher Moore s books seem to be the most addictive for us even with the sometimes dark humor and harsh content The Stupidest Angel is no exception.The book is set in Pine Cove, Calif where [...]

This was a completely different type of read for me It was different, funny, and very odd I went with where the author took me and tried to think of it as realistic at all It was a nice change of pace concerning holiday reading Zombies, drunk santas, and warrior women Sign me up

Parts of this book are incredibly funny but by the time you get to page 211 of this 306 page book, you know you are reading one of the most warped Christmas books ever It is satire at its finest It s Christmas in Pine Cove, California just one of your typical little coastal towns that depends on the annual event for an influx of tourist dollars but has a whole cast of zany characters starting with the town s only cop Theo Crowe who has moved past his hippie days to become one of California s fin [...]

This has no redeeming value other than being entertaining short with a dash of heartwarming Pure snark, mildly amusing, kind of fun, but the joke was wearing thin by the end I m rounding up to give it 3 stars Still, it has Xmas, zombies, definitely the stupidest angel The best characters were the dog, the bat, the psycho warrior princess, not necessarily in that orderYeah, it was kind of weird, but very well read I m not sure, but I might have liked this if I d read the other 2 books in the Pin [...]

Nothing here worked for me, not the characters or the plot, I got bored pretty quickly One of those book where the description outperforms the book itself Low level repetitive humor, and not heartwarming Overall, definitely not worth the time 1 star.
