Book Review: The Stupidest Angel

The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas TerrorThe Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror by Christopher Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Stupidest Angel is the story of young Joshua Barker, a seven-year old boy who thinks he saw Santa Claus getting murdered. A hapless but well-meaning angel attempts to grant Joshua his Christmas miracle with disastrous results that send the whole town into chaos.

I think you either get Christopher Moore and love him or you don’t and hate him. Oh, how I love Christopher Moore. I love, love, love dark absurd humor that doesn’t make any sense and his books are packed full of it. This book has the best line EVER in it:

“No one knows why, but second only to eating the brains of the living, the dead love affordable prefab furniture.”

I thought about this book for days after I finished it and laughed every time. It’s not a traditional Christmas classic and that’s why it’s wonderful.
