Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore

I think I have an issue getting through the first chapter in any Moore book, save Lamb.  I read the first chapter and almost gave the book up as a lost cause, but a stressful day had me reaching into my bag for it and I'm glad I finished it.  I like how Moore weaves together multiple characters and events, including sometimes silly, pointless side lines of things that happen as a result of the plot.  His characters are always diverse, interesting things, and often times display attributes true to people I've known.  I think what I like most about Moores' books is the plot; it's always quirky, well thought out and diverse.  The climax is simple and not all that complex but it is engaging and you know exactly what each character could loose or gain by the resolve.  Now, with that said it's also good to note that Moore often writes from the perspective of a pervy, lewd man sinking into her geriatrics unwillingly, so this isn't for someone who is easily offended by the thoughts I know all honest people probably have.  I laughed, I awe'd and I enjoyed, Practical Demonkeeping - but it's not a book for everyone.

About Me

My photo
Grew up traveling to rodeos with my parents. I've gone across the world thanks to my gypsie feet. I feel sometimes like I've done everything & nothing. I've played roller derby, traveled parts of the world, have four degrees. I've done some things most people will never do in their lives & still I want to do more. I want to work with orphans & teenagers again. I'm a Christian. I have a lot of tattoos. I like art therefore I want to be art. I love people. I started writing years ago when I was a kid. I think at the time it was an outlet for me; I found escape in my word & the worlds I created. Eventually I just started to like creating stuff & that's when I started sharing it with other people. Now I think I write every day. I want to do NaNoWrMo this year. I'm also learning how to knit. I think I'm on my way to being an eccentric old woman who runs around the world doing silly cazy things and knitting while she does them. Be on your guard I have knitting needles!
