Secondhand Souls: A Novel | Christopher Moore
In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearingand you know that cant be goodin New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moores delightfully funny sequel to A Dirty Job. Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someoneor somethingis stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Death Merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. Hes trapped in the body of a fourteen-inch-tall meat puppet waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to find him a suitable new body to play host. To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; retired policeman turned bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth girl. Now if only they can get little Sophie to stop babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind . . .

Christopher Moore makes death weirdly funny. This was my first Moore book, but it won‘t be my last. His humor is right up my alley. I had no idea that this was a sequel when I started it, but it worked fine as a stand-alone book. Clever and a little profane, just like me.

SW-T Love him! My first Moore was 12mo
Patchshank That book is the sequel to A Dirty Job. A Dirty Job is my favorite book by Moore. 12mo
hermyknee I love his books! A Dirty Job is hilarious. I also loved The Stupidest Angel and Fool 12mo

Couldn't get enough of Christopher Moore so I decided to listen to the next one in the series and loved it just as much! And I finished it just in time for the close of the year, bringing my total amount of books read for the year to a meager 32 😒 but I'm going to try to hit 50 next year!!

Another fun book by Mr. Moore! This is the sequel to A Dirty Job, and happily this book continues to have an action packed supernatural storyline full of delightfully foul mouthed and unique characters. Seriously, these books are a hoot! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

GypsyKat @Puredragonstar I‘ve played since vanilla! I used to mostly play Horde (very active in a guild, lots of raids, etc.) but then I took a four year break from the game before Cata hit because it was just too much time. I came back just before WoD. I mostly play Ally now, but I play Horde on a different server when I feel like it. I‘m a super casual player these days. I think my battle tag is gypsykat1161 1y

I hung out with @erinreads today in Kensington/Silver Spring and of course we hit up book stores. There's a used book store in Kensington Antinque Row, and then the FOL book store. My haul. Great seeing Erin again (the only Litten I've met in the wild)! And she put up with my Pokemon habit with minimal smirking.

Have any of my fellow Littens read this book? Would you recommend any specific books by him? Please let me know. ☺️

Shemac77 I haven't read this one but I've read quite a few of his others and they've all been excellent! I've read Lamb, Practical Demonkeeping, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, Coyote Blue, Island of the Sequined Love Nun. I think my favorite was Coyote Blue or Practical Demonkeeping 2y

This is vintage Christopher Moore with crazy characters, dialogue and a mix of supernatural beings from ghosts through ham-squirrel-gator people to Egyptian and Celtic death-gods. He delivers the laughs, silly action as usual - but the poignancy and human touch of Dirty Job is lacking, and I am sad to say that as much as I love Moore and his unique, irreverent style - he is showing his age. No need for a white man to write in black dialect. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

IndyHannaJones I love this book 2y
McFarchie I love this book. It is an interesting point you make. Is the author writing in black dialect, or is the character speaking in it? Is there a difference? 2y
Gezemice @McFarchie It is the same. He is writing a character that speaks black dialect. I love Moore, but he is not keeping with the sensibilities of the time with this one. First, it is not authentic. Second, it is something that's ok for black writers/actors in movies to do, but from a white guy, it comes across mildly racist or at the minimum, stereotyping. I know he does not mean that, but it is offputting. 2y
Gezemice @Hyaeger I love all Moore. 😊 2y

I did not realize I had this many #Goodreads shelves. As you see, I have genres, challenges, themes, and tbr prioritization shelves. I also only keep books I am sure I want to read within a year on my tbr. The on-radar shelf is for those I have not quite committed to yet but most likely will. I have found that a too big tbr is the same as having none.
zzz shelves are a way of archiving.

diovival I also have a long list of GR shelves. I'm still holding out hope that one day they will implement subshelves. 3y
Gezemice @diovival That would be nice! I would also want to be able to rearrange and archive/hide shelves. Or the ability to group shelves. 3y
Laalaleighh Does your Goodreads mark every book on all shelves that aren't TBR as read? Mine does. 3y
diovival @Laalaleighh Nope. I have five exclusive shelves: read, currently-reading, to-read, abandoned, and curious. Goodreads allows you to mark any additional user created shelf as exclusive. It sounds like you may need more than the default 3. 3y
Laalaleighh Huh. I have other shelves but didn't know there was an exclusive option. Must go find it. 3y

I LOVED "A Dirty Job" and was excited to finally pick up this book. It was meant to be a more light-hearted read between everything heavy lately, but i found it to be just okay. I would recommend it if you've read the first book and now at the cheaper price it's worth it but I wouldn't say to rush out and get it. But that Belle though!!! @_@
