THE STUPIDEST ANGEL (Fantasy-Pine Cove, CA-Cont) - VG
Christopher Moore - Standalone
William Morrow, 2004 - Hardcover
Constable Theo Crowe has sworn off pot as long as his wife, Molly the Outlander Warrior Babe, keeps taking her meds. Add to them a completely off-center cast of characters and young Joshua Barker, who has just seen Santa murdered and is praying for a Christmas miracle. Unfortunately, the angel Raziel, who has come to perform the miracle, is definitely not your first-ranked angel and total chaos ensues.
I read this on plane home for Christmas and laughed myself halfway across the country. I may now have a problem reading Gift of the Magi, eating lasagna or shopping at Ikea. But for those with a completely irreverant sense of humor, this is a wacky, delightful book.
