I bought this from Chapters the other day. I was told you need to read Christopher Moore's books in order so that is what I intend to do.

From Chapters:
In Christopher Moore’s ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and ""roads"" scholar Travis O’Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets. Behind the fake Tudor façade of Pine Cove, California, Catch sees a four-star buffet. Travis, on the other hand, thinks he sees a way of ridding himself of his toothy traveling companion. The winos, neo-pagans, and deadbeat Lotharios of Pine Cove, meanwhile, have other ideas. And none of them is quite prepared when all hell breaks loose.

This is my very first Christopher Moore book, and it's way outside my usual genres (this is part fantasy, part paranormal, part fiction). This story involves a person-eating demon named Catch, and his master (though his control is waining) Travis. I was beginning to get worried as Moore introduced more and more characters into the book. There was a point where I was beginning to forget who was who and would have to flip back to where they were introduced. At the end though, they all tied together nicely.
This was a very easy read, and provided some suspense to try and figure out how the lot of them were going to get rid of Catch. Overall, I thought the book was ok. I hear that Moore's work gets better as he writes more and this is his first book so I'll have to find the next one he's written.

This also was a different type of read for me. The book was interesting but I really had trouble getting into it. The reason for this is probably the number of characters. I just didn't see all the connections at first. I did enjoy the ending though

The book is a fun read. It is revealing that this was Moores' first book. It has some problems. I'll put it out on mooch for someone else to grab it. I had to tape the spine to reinforce it. The cover is starting to tear away. The reat of the book is comfy, cozy and in good shape. no pages were harmed in reading this book.

Picked this up from Tsunami Books in Eugene. Haven't read it yet but have read 2 other books from Moore and decided to find more from him. Hoping this one will keep me as entertained as the others did.
