This book wasn't as good as I hoped, and by the time I had a quarter of it left, I felt stuck but wanted to finish. The last bit was better than most of it.

I forgot how absurd and funny Christopher Moore’s books are with laugh out loud scenes throughout.

I couldn't get past the whole beta male thing. I think it was supposed to be a joke nut it just came off as weird and gross.

Ok, so Moore COMPLETELY redeemed himself on this one. I enjoyed the character crossovers from Bloodsucking Fiends, even though I didn't really like that book very much. I'm glad that I read it first, however, or I wouldn't have known about the crossovers. A Dirty Job has a hilariously strange storyline, full of dark humour, and with a pinch of genuine sentiment. The main character is goofy, and entirely loveable, as he bumbles his way through his new career as "death merchant". I'll definitely be picking up the sequel at some point in the future

I really liked this book. The writing style was so easy to read and I can't wait to read more of his books

For humor and death, I’d rather read Terry Pratchett

Decent enough to convince me to read the second book.
