It was, then, with some reluctance that I picked up Lamb, and I didn't stop reading. What a heady ride! Funny, touching, endearing, and thought provoking, it is easily among the best books I have read in the recent time (I read about 100 novels a year).
Definitely worth picking up. I am not a christian, in fact, I am an atheist, and I still enjoyed every bit. While having read the bible will make you crack up more, it is definitely not a requirement.
Hilarious as hell!
Certain parts were kind of creepy reading how Jesus and his friend would talk like a normal teenagers and while it is fun and entertaining it spooked me at times too
If anybody can mess with god that’s Christopher Moore
All through the book there is not a point where he has left a perfect opportunity to pull the legs of god... he did not even leave Indian Gods for that matter... hilarious and fun all the while.
The book is fun, hilarious but at the same time there is a whole lot of lewd jokes as well and sometimes there are certain things that you would not want to hear from the mouth of Jesus but if you take it in a sporting spirit, this book is a humorous and pretty funny takes on Jesus and his missing years and eventually Crucifixion.
The book may not be to everybody’s liking especially considering the fact that your perception of Christ will never be the same after you read this. The humour at times are dark and certain things does put a dent on your religious beliefs (so if you are very emotional about god.. then stay out) and also there is no dearth of bawdy jokes and languages .. So approach with caution….
