That, my friends, is the face of one of my absolute favorite authors, Christopher Moore. His books are quirky, weird, supernatural and hilarious, so it's pretty obvious how I was drawn to him. I have read his books and laughed out loud on the NYC subways system, ignoring my fellow passengers who slide away from me in fear that I'm either bat-shit crazy or patient zero in some sort of happiness disease. New Yorkers aren't huge on happiness.
Now before I give you my top five favorite Moore books, it should be noted that there is an order that I would suggest reading them. With the exception of Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, Fool and Sacre Bleu, I would read his books in the order they were written. Each of his books involve places and characters that overlap. I read the books out of order, so I would be reading about characters that seemed established which would leave me a bit confused only to later read a different book slapping my head and going "OH!" also causing subway riders to once again slide away from me.
So here are my top 5 favorite Christopher Moore books:
