Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal - Christopher Moore, Fisher Stevens This is a satirical story of Jesus' life from a child of 6 resurrecting lizards and throughout his lifetime told by his goofy and sarcastic sidekick Levi known as Biff. Some of the highlights for me was the resurrected Biff's reactions to todays world, for example, trying to decipher rap lyrics as he sat in a hotel room in St. Louis writing this "gospel" Some die-hard Christians with no sense of humor may find some things offensive, but personally I laughed out loud (literally, not just the lol kind) many many times. I didn't finish the entire book. The humor, to me, was 5 star. The problem was that I tired of it fairly quickly. I may go back and read a few more chapters in between books or long series, but there's no way I can sit and read this in its entirety in one sitting. It was like a hilarious stand-up routine that went on for 10 hours, eventually, it just all sounds the same.
