Unfunny and Unpleasant

by GothicSidhe on Jan 29, 2011

This book was awful! I thought it was supposed to at least have a humorous edge to it, but instead it was unfunny, the characters were immensely unlikeable, and the ending was quite unsatisfactory. I regret wasting my time on it. It seems most of the other reviewers have read other books by this author, but I have not, and now have no wish to. Honestly, I'm not one of those people who demands that their protagonist be a paragon of perfection, but I'd at least like ONE of the characters I'm reading about to be marginally (or, preferrably, mostly) likeable! I get that this work is pretty much about obliquely mocking and criticizing every faith and belief structure that gets mentioned, but please! If I wanted to read a work dealing with the supernatural, deeply flawed protagonists, and one where every character gets drunk all the time, I'd pull out some Poppy Z. Brite and have a much better read. It would probably be a good deal funnier, too!

As always, Mr. Moore keeps me laughing--I think I have read everything he has ever written!
