Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, February 10, 2003
[Since "Lamb" is now out in paperback, I acquired a couple of copies to pass along. The following is, more or less, the review I wrote when I first read the book, courtesy of other BCers.]

It wasn't quite what I expected - although I don't know exactly what I *did* expect - but I loved this book. Sweet, funny, crude, touching - wildly slapstick in places and poignant in others, with a more sympathetic view of Jesus than I've seen in many a year (and from many a church)... I enjoyed it so much [including laughing out loud and scaring the cats - I learned early not to read this while drinking anything lest I spew mouthfuls of coffee or beer all over the landscape] that I've purchased a hard-cover copy for my permanent collection (plus a couple more hardcovers as presents, plus a pair of paperbacks to release!).

"He was a pretty normal kid, for the most part. There was the trick he did
with the lizards, and once we found a dead meadowlark and he brought it back
to life, and there was the time, when we were eight, when he healed his
brother Judah's fractured skull after a game of 'stone the adulteress' got
out of hand. (Judah could never get the hang of being an adulteress. He'd
stand there stiff as Lot's wife. You can't do that. An adulteress has to be
wily and nimble-footed.) The miracles Joshua performed were small and quiet,
as miracles tend to be, once you get used to them." -- "Lamb", C. Moore

Controlled release - I'm sending this one to JennyO, who solemnly promises to wild-release it when she's done.

Journal Entry 3 by wingO-Jennywing from Temple, Texas USA on Wednesday, February 26, 2003
Received in the mail today. I'm VERY anxious to start reading it. Will finish Polar tonight and start this one no later than tomorrow. I've already emailed the author and told him I'm looking forward to reading it, and that I'll follow up with him when I'm through.

I've sworn to wild release this when I'm through to keep GoryDetails's karma flowing (or whatever it is that karma does). I may release it when my friend and I go outlet mall hopping on Mar. 10th...Will post release notes and a review closer to the 10th.

Journal Entry 4 by wingO-Jennywing from Temple, Texas USA on Tuesday, March 04, 2003
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was laugh out loud funny in spots -- my personal favorite was when Joshua decided bacon was probably okay -- and touching in others. GoryDetails did such a good job reviewing this book, and I'm so pressed for time, I won't add much. I do plan to buy a copy for my friend who taught high school Sunday School with me for years. I think he'll love it too.

I'm going to wild release this somewhere in the Austin area on Saturday. I'm not sure where yet though. Will post a release note when I figure it out.

Released on Thursday, March 06, 2003 at Shipley's Donuts at 31st and Loop 363 in Temple, Texas USA.

Created a new BookCrossing Zone today and left several books there. Look on the shelf above the trash can in the main seating area. You should see the BC sign. I'll be adding books as often as I can.

Journal Entry 6 by Janbur from Belton, Texas USA on Saturday, April 05, 2003
I received this book yesterday from JennyO. I have heard and read good things about it, so I am expecting to enjoy this book.

Journal Entry 7 by Janbur from Belton, Texas USA on Sunday, April 13, 2003
This was a funny book. The original poster pretty much says it all. There were a few parts that I found slightly irreverent, but nothing overtly offensive. I'm glad I read it, and will be wild-releasing it soon.

Journal Entry 8 by Janbur from Belton, Texas USA on Tuesday, July 01, 2003
Mailing tomorrow to LINDLEC, in Nottingham, England. Hope she enjoys it!

Journal Entry 9 by Lindlec from Nottingham, not specified not specified on Tuesday, July 22, 2003
Thankyou so much for sending this and fulfilling my wish - I look forward to reading it just as soon as I finish up with English Passengers (for my bookgroup) - and will journal more then.

Journal Entry 10 by Lindlec from Nottingham, not specified not specified on Tuesday, February 10, 2004
I really enjoyed this book, it was very funny, but also had a thoroughly engaing plot. I thought that the relationships between Biff, Joshua and MAry were brilliant. I would recommend this novel to all who love a chuckle and a good yarn. It was clever how if wove threads of the bible eg. loaves and fishes, and the turin shroud. I also loved the ending - and hip hip hoorayed for biff and mary.

I am now sending this out to Jamesmum to enjoy.

Journal Entry 11 by YowlYY on Sunday, February 20, 2005
Destiny didn't want for it to make it to Jamesmum, however, it made it to the Nottingham Meetup yesterday, where I caught it. I've heard many good things about this novel, and it's exciting to receive a such well travelled copy :-)
It will join the others on my TBR bookshelf and will make a new JE after reading it. Thanks Lindlec!

Journal Entry 13 by tutleymutley from Newton Abbot, Devon United Kingdom on Thursday, May 19, 2005
Thankyou very muchly Yowlyy. Very timely - just posted off 4 ringbooks yesterday so any sooner and I'd have been STRESSED!
Looking forward to reading my second Christopher Moore book and another one to cross off my wish list.

June 5th - apologies for the delay - work has been hectic.
I'm about two thirds of the way thru this book. I'm not finding it quite as page turning and rib tickling as 'Practical Demonkeeping' but I AM enjoying it. Will have finished it within the week, then on to Mastulela.

Journal Entry 14 by tutleymutley from Newton Abbot, Devon United Kingdom on Wednesday, June 08, 2005
Put Jesus in with 'men behaving badly', and there you have it! The anachronisms grated on me to begin with - Biff uses comtemporary americanisms which Christopher Moore explains away by giving Biff the 'gift of tongues', and I got over it. By the time Biff and Joshua get to Gaspar and start fooling with Buddhism, I was laughing out loud - just as I did with 'Practical Demonkeeping'. Christopher Moore acknowledges his inaccuracies - despite its irreverance he says:
"this story is not meant to challenge anyone's faith; however if one's faith can be shaken by stories in a humorous novel, one may have a bit more praying to do". Fair 'nuff - not that I'm well up on the bible, or even very religious - I'm probably more knowledgeable about the Buddha than Christianity! - no, strike that, my knowledge of both rests at the popular level.
I'll read more Moore I've no doubt.
Plan to PM Mastulela and post as soon as.

Journal Entry 15 by Mastulela from Nuneaton, Warwickshire United Kingdom on Saturday, June 11, 2005
Arrived safely this morning. I am half-way through a book, and this will be next. (I loved the rear ends of the zebras.)

Journal Entry 16 by Mastulela from Nuneaton, Warwickshire United Kingdom on Sunday, June 19, 2005
An irreverend but not blasphemous look at the life of Joshua (Jesus)as written in unexpurgated versions of the Gospels by Biff (and Mary). Christopher Moore gets into the minds of young adolescents. The relationship between Joshua, Biff and Mary are well drawn and moving, but overall my favourite character was the angel Raziel.

I enjoyed the novel immensely even though I would not call it great 'literature'. Unlike a previous journaller I though the ending was just too 'feel good' to add anything to an already absorbing book.

On to Catrionamoore

Journal Entry 17 by appletreen from Coalville, Leicestershire United Kingdom on Wednesday, June 22, 2005
Arrived safely this morning, and I found the very appropriate postcard too. I do have a few books in front of this one but I will read it as soon as I can.

Journal Entry 18 by appletreen from Coalville, Leicestershire United Kingdom on Monday, July 25, 2005
What exactly happened to Jesus between his birth and his coming of age at 30? Where did he go and what did he do? How on earth did he get from gurgling infant swaddled in a manger to crucified Messiah with a whole host of disciples? Why was Levi written out of the Bible?

Levi, aka Biff, is brought back to life by the angel Raziel to write the missing gospel. Biff tells the tale of Joshua’s teenage years and his struggle with celibacy that leads to him spending his savings on harlots for Biff to be pleasured by just so Joshua can understand the sin of lust. And it turns out that Maggie, aka Mary Magdalene, was locked up in the same hotel writing her gospel too.

Yes, the book was rather funny. Not laugh out loud or crying with laughter but funny nonetheless. I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about Christopher Moore but I’m still not entirely convinced. Although I’m not going to let this book put me off reading Practical Demon Keeping which is on my bookshelf waiting to be read. The book was comical and I’ve suggested it to a friend so it can’t be all that bad, some of my enthusiasm may have waned as it is over a week since I finished to book and I’m having a bit of a reading crisis which is not a good thing when I have 3 ring books waiting to be read.

To be posted on ASAP, apologies for keeping it longer than intended.

Journal Entry 19 by wilksie from Sheffield, South Yorkshire United Kingdom on Friday, July 29, 2005
This arrived today. Thanks for sending it, I'm looking forward to reading it.

Journal Entry 20 by wilksie from Sheffield, South Yorkshire United Kingdom on Monday, August 29, 2005
An interesting read. Irreverent and funny in places but not a great book.
I enjoyed it in parts but overall I felt it was a bit too long!
Sending it on to caro1.

Arrived safely. Looking forward to reading this although there are a few books ahead of it in my TBR pile. Thanks for posting wilksie. More later.

Sorry for the delay, have just started reading this

Journal Entry 22 by Caro1 from Newark On Trent, Nottinghamshire United Kingdom on Friday, November 04, 2005
I can only repeat what others have already written, I really enjoyed this irreverent, funny and poignant book. I'm going to have to read more by this author and look out for my own copy of this book. Thanks for sharing YowlYY.

Will post to perfect-circle tomorrow.

Journal Entry 23 by perfect-circle from Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear United Kingdom on Monday, November 07, 2005
Arrived this morning, perfect timing as I have no rings/rays waiting so will get on with this straight away

Journal Entry 24 by perfect-circle from Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear United Kingdom on Sunday, November 13, 2005
I can only echo others in calling this a wonderfully funny irreverant book. I think I even prefered this to Practical Demonkeeping, the only other Moore book I've read. The ending was a touch corny and too 'happy ending' for my liking, but still, a very good read.

Will post to pyschjo later this week.

Journal Entry 25 by psychjo from Portsmouth, Hampshire United Kingdom on Sunday, November 20, 2005
Thanks to perfect-circle for sending this on - have a couple of books to go before I get to this one....

Journal Entry 26 by psychjo from Portsmouth, Hampshire United Kingdom on Monday, March 13, 2006
A small post to reassure you all that I am reading this at the moment, but it seems to be taking forever! So far it has raised a few smiles, but think I am too much of a heathen to appreciate many of the jokes as just don't know the bible that well.... On the verge of wondering wether to keep going with it or not, as I am not racing to pick it up and read more that could be a sign, though life is a bit hectic at the moment anyway, so maybe just not in a reading frame of mind.....

Journal Entry 27 by psychjo from Portsmouth, Hampshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, March 28, 2006
Finally finished this book. I did enjoy it, though didn't laugh out loud as I was expecting to from previous journal entries. Enjoyed it as a story, and enjoyed learning a bit more about different religions/philosophies. Probably didn't get as much from it might have done if I'd known the bible a bit better....

Will send on as soon as I can.

Journal Entry 28 by psychjo from Portsmouth, Hampshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, March 29, 2006
About to put in the post to Cloggy.

Journal Entry 29 by cloggy from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Friday, April 07, 2006
The book arrived with me safely this morning. Thanks Psychjo and Yowlyy for sharing

Journal Entry 30 by cloggy from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Wednesday, May 03, 2006
Great book, made me laugh out loud quite a few times. So why only 7 and not 9? I think that Moore could have done a bit more with his excellent premise. To me, his greatest achievement is not to offend anybody, but he could have pushed the boundaries a bit more.
The start and finish of the novel, the parts where he subverts the bible content are the strongest. In the middle I lost interest a little bit. Still, I really enjoyed the book and I'm just nitpicking.

Thanks Yowlyy for letting me read a book that without Bookcrossing I'd never have come across. In the post back to you this morning.

Journal Entry 31 by YowlYY on Friday, May 05, 2006
The book is back with me, in company of a very nice postcard with a recipe on the back - thanks Cloggy :)

I've put it on the bottom of my pile of rings/rays, and it is No.7...as I see that I will be doing a fair amount of travelling in the next three months, I expect this to be read before the summer holidays, so that the international ray can start :)

Thanks to all the BCUKers who participated so far and gave such interesting and entertaining comments...I surely look forward to reading this, you've made me very curious!

Journal Entry 32 by YowlYY on Sunday, September 03, 2006
Me too, I can only say that the book was a funny one, although not so excellent as some other BCers made clear in their journal entries (I had a look at other copies registered as well).
I too found Raziel to be the most interesting person (can I say so of an angel?) and too funny, and had to giggle various times while reading it. I also agree that Moore made it a tad too long... in the middle, just when Joshua is in the middle of the Buddhismus phase, I was almost tempted to give up on it, but then conscience forced me to keep on going.
So, now is the book ready to start the international ray... I'd better make a posting on the forum for it.
Ready to leave to sunny California (or so I hope it still is!) as soon as the mailing address is being confirmed.


Update on 4th September: off in the mail today - airmail service. Happy reading!

Journal Entry 34 by caligula03 from Hayward, California USA on Sunday, September 24, 2006
I normally love Christopher Moore's books but I found Lamb a chore to read. The story was at its best when Biff and Joshua were with the folks mentioned in the New Testiment but the middle third where they go in search of the "divine spark" aka "holy ghost" in the far east, the story stops being interesting. It just seems to degrade into one bawdy joke after another. The only bright bit of this interlude is the appearance of Catch (the demon introduced in Practical Demonkeeping.

RELEASE NOTES:

Mailing to adrienne10.

Journal Entry 36 by wingadrienne10wing from Seattle, Washington USA on Friday, October 27, 2006
Received in today's mail. I'm so excited to read this. However, I just got a book from the library I am really excited to read as well. In fact, my DH went to pick it up for me today special, so I'll be getting to this book after I read that. That means, I'll start this by the beginning of next week.

Journal Entry 37 by wingadrienne10wing from Seattle, Washington USA on Wednesday, November 22, 2006
*cough* Um, well, it sort of slid down the reading list as I read the book my husband had gotten from the library for me, and then another book that I had volunteered to read and write questions on. Plus, I've been in a reading lull.

I picked this book up a few days ago, when I remembered I had it. It's been a tough month. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thanks so much for sharing it to all those who had it and decided to keep passing it along!

I've read 3 of Moore's books now, Pracitical Demonkeeping and Bloodsucking Fiends along with Lamb. It has been a long while since I read these, although I did recognize Catch in Lamb. I was a little trepid to read this, as I was a bit worried about how far off Moore might have gone. I find his note interesting at the end that those who know the Gospels well enough to catch the places that are the same would be the least likely to read this book. I think that he almost loses on two points: one that those who are most likely to believe in Jesus as the Messiah would be put off by the irreverency and second that those who do not believe would not enjoy the primary assumption that Jesus is exactly who he is portrayed to be by the Gospels. So that those who fall into the two categories have a beef.

This was a fun and charming book. I, too, found the beginning and ending most interesting, although the middle was the chunk of the story (it was seventeen years after all). I was disappointed to see how little of the novel was left when we got back to Nazareth. I very much liked the passion told from the point of view of the best friend. I don't think I've seen it portrayed so well that way before. This is how the followers and friends and family of Jesus would act in this situation. Isn't it likely?

Anyway, I did laugh, even out loud at some parts. I find the very end a little trite and not to my liking, but overall the rest of the novel overcomes the last couple pages.

As for Raziel, I couldn't get the angel from The Vintner's Luck out of my head at every single reference. Made for a really strange view of the angel that I know was not Moore's intent.

I've pmd the next person on the ray and will get this moving soon. Next week is extremely busy (I don't think I get to sleep) so it is likely to be two weeks before I can get to a post office to send this along, even with an address.

Journal Entry 38 by CosmicCutie from San Antonio, Texas USA on Tuesday, December 05, 2006
Just arrived in the post. I am so excited about this book. Names like Adams and Vonnegut aren't to be tossed around without reason. If Moore is truly in a league with them I believe I am going to want to search out more of his titles. I have one book to finish first and then I'll be all over this one. What a neat holiday read ;)

Journal Entry 39 by CosmicCutie from San Antonio, Texas USA on Monday, December 18, 2006
Nobody's perfect... Well, there was this one guy, but we killed him.
-ANONYMOUS

I've just finished the book by accident. What I mean is that I meant to pmail the next person in line BEFORE I finished reading the book, but just couldn't put it down. I loved this book so. Moore instantly joins the ranks of my personal favorite authors, alongside Adams and Vonnegut -and rightfully so. His other titles are going on my wish list and I plan to get at least two copies of Lamb: one as a gift and one as a lend.

The character dynamics are just wonderful, I love the idea of a fun-loving Christ. Throughout, I just couldn't shake the idea that no one could enjoy this book more than God hisownself.

P.S. Got to love the Author's Blessing too, there's no way of misinterpreting this guy's intentions.

P.P.S. Thanks Gory and YowlYY for sending this one out ;)

Journal Entry 40 by macewoman from Winston Salem, North Carolina USA on Friday, January 12, 2007
Arrived safe and sound in my mailbox this afternoon. With all of the great reviews, I'm really looking forward to reading this. I'll finish up my current read and start this tomorrow.
Thanks to all for keeping this ring/ray moving along.

Journal Entry 41 by macewoman from Winston Salem, North Carolina USA on Monday, January 22, 2007
This was my first Moore read, so I didn't really know what to expect. Plus the subject matter can be a tricky subject to write (or read) about with a sense of humor. I thought he did an exceptional job and the afterword was a good way to understand his rationale and expectations. I appreciated that he could poke fun without denigrating Christians and their beliefs.
I read a few pages out loud to the guys at my PT job and they loved it. One later asked for the title, so he could look for a copy to read. Since these guys aren't big readers, I thought it was great.
One last thing, I had many places that I laughed out loud, and most have been listed in other JE's. But I have to say that when Joshua couldn't resist poking anyone who said they were "Untouchable" just cracked me up. Not sure what that says about my sense of humor, but there you have it.

I have zosimee's address and it is going in the mail today.

Journal Entry 42 by zosime from Marshfield, Wisconsin USA on Saturday, January 27, 2007
Received in the mail today. Thank you! I'll start it as soon as I finish the book I'm reading. Also, I love the bookmark, Caro1!

Journal Entry 43 by zosime from Marshfield, Wisconsin USA on Thursday, February 22, 2007
This was my first go at one of Christopher Moore's books as well, and I enjoyed it very much. I loved the quirky, irreverant humor and the odd anachronisms. I agree that the book slowed down a bit in the middle, but not enough to lose its momentum. I enjoyed the jokes and fun-poking on some of the Eastern traditions, and I must agree with the author that the question of "What if Jesus had known kung fu?" is an important one.

I'll try to get this in the mail right away.

Journal Entry 45 by pumpkin-head from Glasgow, Scotland United Kingdom on Friday, April 20, 2007
I was starting to worry a little as surface mail doesn't usually take that long, but here it is, arrived safe,

Looking forward to having some time next week to relax and read, this is up next.

Journal Entry 46 by pumpkin-head from Glasgow, Scotland United Kingdom on Tuesday, May 01, 2007
I think I enjoyed the characterization and subverting (is that a word?) of well-known Bible stories more than I actually enjoyed the story. The timing was unfortunate as I was reading it during a hectic job and lacking the brain required to fully appreciate it. Not being religious I like to think of Jesus having a more human side - and a good friend like Biff to keep his feet on the ground.

Pm'd KathyS for her address so it'll be on it's way in a few days.

Journal Entry 47 by KathyS on Saturday, May 05, 2007
Arrived safely this morning. I've got 1 ring book ahead of it at the moment so I hopefully should get to this within the month. Thanks for sharing :o)

Journal Entry 48 by KathyS on Monday, May 28, 2007
Joshua scratched his head. "The Vegemites smote the Marmites?"
"Yeah, Excretions three-six."
"I don't remember that. I guess I need to brush up on my Torah."


My first Christopher Moore book and I LOVED it. It was a delight to read from cover to cover. I thought Biff and Joshua's relationship was wonderful. Biff had total belief in his friend and would go to the end of the world with him, yet still teased and taunted him, like any normal friend would do.

I'm not a religious person by any means but I have read the bible and visited many of the places mentioned and described in and around Jersualem and Galilee - I was on a kibbutz in Israel 20 odd years ago. Throughout my time there I found that I was constantly reminded that Jesus was a real human being that did actually live and walk in the same streets and places that I was walking. This was especially strong when I visited Capernaum and Tiberius. Most of the other venues of Jesus' teachings/happenings have become shrines to him and there is little left of the original to truely get a feel for him. But in Capernaum you can see the remains of houses and streets, some claiming to date back to the same period when Jesus lived and walked there. When I visited, it was early in the morning and free from the endless tourists that flock to the usual shrines and I was really able to connect to the man. I think that Moore has done the same in this book. I like the way he wove the stories from the gospels with the mundane events of normal life and made them believable. I also loved the years before he returned to Israel and his travels through China and India with Biff at his side, helping to keep him safe. Great fun!

Thanks for sharing the book with us GoryDetails - and thanks for organising the bookray Yowlyy. I shall definitely be looking out for more Moore books in the future.

Received over coffee in the sunshine with Rachel, who says this is a fun read and I believe her!

26th Sept. Littlemoo has beaten me to it, so I'll add my comments here. I found this to be a truly witty book; you couldn't but help having a soft spot for Biff of the title and Joshua comes over pretty well himself. I am now on a look out for any other Christopher Moore books that are out there. And, happy reading to Littlemoo; it was a pleasure to meet you at the Leicester OBCZ, The Swan and Rushes. Coffee's on me next time!

Journal Entry 56 by Flambard from Horsham, West Sussex United Kingdom on Sunday, December 02, 2007
What a witty, touching and funny book! I've been reading it to my teddy bear (Mohammed Jesus Buddha Siva Gaia Jahweh Zeus Beckham III) every night before we've gone beddy-byes and I must say we have both enjoyed it enormously! Though it has to be said that he has got a little obsessed with the song on page 206 and it's a bit disconcerting having "If I only had a schlong!" bawled in your ear just as you're trying to drift off into the arms of Morpheus (or whichever of that bunch is on duty that night). His brother (On Me 'Ed Beckham) has taken to impersonating kamikaze rabbis and shouting "Torah, Torah, Torah" at anyone with a beard (especially my Aunt Jane, which she finds rather upsetting). Anyway, Merry Xmas everyone! Thanks for including me in the ray! I'm waiting for a response from the next participant and hope the book will continue on its way shortly. Right, I'm off to find some goats to disembowel in honour of the Winter Solstice....
