Outstanding sequel better than the first!
on 13 May 2017
I had read 'Practical Demon Keeping' (several times) years ago, and to my lasting shame, I did not know there was more from the same 'pen'. The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove was one of the best, and funniest, books I have read in years. I especially love the way Christopher Moore breaks each 'chapter' up into sub-chapters specific to an individual, that goes to making the whole complete. Never a dull moment, and so many twists and turns it was mesmerising! I am not going to buy any more of his books for a while, a) to keep the 'vibe' fresh, and (b) because I cannot trust myself not to read them cover to cover in one sitting as I did with this one. Although, having said that, even the best intentions are thwarted by the works of an outstanding author, and I have ordered two others in spite of myself.
