A Dirty Job – Christopher Moore

Right, finding the death-and-gloom a bit heavy with Connie Willis, so I hop over to a book with a deaths-head holding a sickle.  Duh. It’s death-and-giggles.

I liked Dirty Job a lot – it’s just as funny as Bloodsucking Fiends, and has more depth to it.

I didn’t check the publication date, but the central plot device reminded me a lot of Dead Like Me. Luckily, the book has all of the Christopher Moore insanity to power things along, and it’s not really about the plot and the gizmos.

Two thumbs up.
