If you have never read a book by Chritopher Moore you have no idea what you're missing " A Dirty Job" is a laugh out loud twisted take on the Angel of Death theme. He is by far one on the most irreverant, sarcastic authors to come around since Mark Twain. The only reason to put this book down is to catch you're breath during a laughing fit.
This tale of death and its dealings poke irreverent fun at just about everything and everyone. It's a wonderful mix of fantasy and reality based in a world we can all relate to. Christopher Moore has created a tell it like it is, suck it up and deal with it plot which leaves you turning every page in anticipation of the next wacky event. I promise you coming to the close of this book will leave you mournig it's end, it's so good you don't want to finish it.Get it, borrow it, or steal it from a friend, but read it.
