Book Review: Lamb by Christopher Moore

A hilarious read, but only if you are not easily offended by religious blasphemy:) Lamb is a hilarious look at the life of Jesus through the eyes of his best friend Biff. It’s an easy read and one of Moore’s best books.

Synopsis: The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years ? except Biff, the Messiah's best bud, who has been resurrected to tell the story in this divinely hilarious, yet heartfelt work reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams' (Philadelphia Inquirer). Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes, Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Saviour's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny.

If you loved "Lamb", then you should give "Anti-Christ: A Satirical End of Days" a look. Fun read, trust me.
