Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore

Practical Deamonkeeping by Christopher Moore

This is my very first Christopher Moore book, and it's way outside my usual genres (this is part fantasy, part paranormal, part fiction). This story involves a person-eating demon named Catch, and his master (though his control is waining) Travis. I was beginning to get worried as Moore introduced more and more characters into the book. There was a point where I was beginning to forget who was who and would have to flip back to where they were introduced. At the end though, they all tied together nicely.
This was a very easy read, and provided some suspense to try and figure out how the lot of them were going to get rid of Catch. Overall, I thought the book was ok. I hear that Moore's work gets better as he writes more and this is his first book so I'll have to find the next one he's written.

I haven't read any Christopher Moore either, but I wouldn't mind trying. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the book.

I haven't read any of his books either. But he sounds like he is all over the place. Turtle has 1 or 2 books of his. Maybe I'll read them.
