Secondhand Souls: 05/27/18
Secondhand Souls by Christopher Moore has convinced me that I'm ready to move on from my thirties obsession with Moore's books. While I've matured as a reader, any growth shown in Sacré Bleu must have been a fluke. Or maybe I was the only reader to like it.
Secondhand Souls is the sequel to A Dirty Job. But the inspiration behind the first book, which while goofy, was still compelling and touching, is missing here. Instead we're giving sophomoric jokes, zombie squirrels, sex jokes, and other filler.
To make matters worse, the copy I had was poorly made. The print run was blurry and ink stained. I've read self published books with better quality assurance than this sad volume. It's so illegible in places that I'll have to throw out the book rather than sell it or donate it.
