An invaluable resource for any demonkeeper
on 19 January 2007
Christopher Moore has found a very good niche in the fantasy fiction world. He creates a set of oddball characters, mixes in a few seemingly normal people to keep your disbelief in check, then sprinkles the plot with a set of crazy ideas. In Practical Demonkeeping this is the recipe: A normal guy becomes involved with the supernatural in error. His new companion likes to eat people. Many inhabitants of a cosy town become embroilled in the resulting chaos as demon and demonkeeper try to part ways. Once Moore has cooked this plot, the result is tale that is clever, funny and although it never takes itself too seriously, it's well written enough to keep you interested until the end. It's a short and snappy book which I heartily recommend if you're looking for some quality light entertainment.
