He used to be a Death Merchant before getting killed by one of the Morrigan, and now that his seven-year-old sailor-mouthed daughter, who happens to be "the Big D" i. Death , is in danger from a new sinister, lemon-color clothed Big Bad, he needs to figure out how to get a life-sized body again so he can save her. So, yeah. I love Moore so much. His plots are absolute insanity, his characters perfectly weirdly human and therefore delightfully lovable , and his dialogue is so clever and funny it makes me giddy.
The return to Charlie Asher, his family and friends. You will have to read the previous book but if you are a Moore fan, this series will entertain.
Again, another battle between death and forces darker than death. A perplexing mystery surrounding who has the rights to collecting and dispersing the souls of the dead. Don Mar 26, I'm not feeling a long review for this audiobook, but I do feel that I should say something , so here it goes: 1. Fisher Stevens is an excellent narrator and this audio performance is no exception.
He did all the voices so well and with such gusto-I love this guy. Christopher Moore is hilarious. Sometimes juvenile, but that's okay with me. With characters like Minty Fresh and Lemon Fresh and phrases like "Shy Dookie" that was a pet name for someone who could only poop at home , how can you not succumb to laughter, even if it is a bit silly? This audio book was a lot of fun and I recommend it to fans of this kind of humor! Forse ho solo bisogno di una pausa dai libri di Moore, ma questo ha appassionato meno del solito e a tratti l'ho trovato di un umorismo un po' forzato.
Si ride meno che negli altri, secondo me. Felt like a lot of threads that did not get pursued. Sign up to get a pre-publication copy in exchange for a review. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist. Big news!
Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someone--or something--is 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. He's 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. Books Read in Books Read in 1, No current Talk conversations about this book.
Charlie Asher lives as a resurrected soul in a miniscule meat puppet that his Buddhist nun girlfriend made for him. Part two to "A Dirty Job".

Three Jewel Buddhist Center fictional. In memory of Keith Bowen. Selected from the Great Big Book of Death: First Edition 1 Congratulations, you have been chosen to act as Death, it's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. Despite having been liberated from his beta-male DNA, Charlie still viewed the world with glassy-eyed suspicion, due in no small part to the fact that he had already been murdered once and hadn't cared for the experience.
Which was not entirely true, but even she knew it was ill-advised to throw down with drag nuns at a funeral, and she felt very mature for the lie. The different ghosts, each more charming than the last, appeared to people on bridges all over the world, and thus was established the new turn of the Wheel of Life and Death, so that each soul on its journey between bodies, would pause in a place between places, and then continue on toward its proper place as part of the universe.

Book description It seems like only yesterday that Charlie Asher took on a very dirty job - collecting souls and keeping the Forces of Darkness at bay. The new gig came with the Big Book of the Dead and a host of other oddities; creatures under the streets, an evil trinity of ravenlike Celtic death goddesses, and one very bad Underworld dude attempting to conquer humanity.
Along with a cohort of other oddballs, Charlie faced off against these denizens of darkness - and met his own end. But thanks to Audrey, his Buddhist-nun boo, his soul is still alive Waiting for Audrey to find him a suitable new body to play host, Charlie has squirreled himself away from everyone, including his adorable seven-year-old daughter, Sophie, who enjoys dressing up like a princess, playing with her glitter ponies, and being the Luminatus - spouting off about her power over the Underworld and her domination over Death.
Just when Charlie and company thought the world was safe, some really freaky stuff hits San Fransicso.
Someone - or something - is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Then there's the Taser-wielding banshee keening about doom who's suddenly appeared while Sophie's guardian hellhounds, Alvin and Mohammed, have mysteriously vanished. Charlie is just as flummoxed as everyone else. To get to the bottom of this abomination, he and a motley crew of heroes will band together; the seven-foot-tall, two-hundred-and-seventy-five-pounds-of-lean-heartache Death Merchant Minty Fresh, retired policeman-turned-bookseller Alponse Rivera, the lunatic Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs Bummer and Lazarus, Mike Sullivan, a bridge painter in love with a ghost, a gentle French-speaking janitor named Jean-Pierre Baptiste, and former Goth girl Lily Darquewillow Eleventhing Severo, now a part-time suicide hotline counselor.
With little Sophie babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind, time is definitely not on their side. Haiku summary. Add to Your books. Add to wishlist. Quick Links Amazon.
