The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror (Pine Cove, #3) Read Online Free - 'Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through the tiny community of Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.
But not everybody is feeling the joy. Little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a holiday miracle. No, he's not on his deathbed; no, his dog hasn't run away from home. But Josh is sure that he saw Santa take a shovel to the head, and now the seven-year-old has only one prayer: Please, Santa, come back from the dead.
But hold on! There's an angel waiting in the wings. (Wings, get it?) It's none other than the Archangel Raziel come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs granting. Unfortunately, our angel's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch, and before you can say "Kris Kringle," he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen.
Move over, Charles Dickens -- it's Christopher Moore time.

What is not to love about a book that has a pot smoking law official married to a crazy woman who runs around naked with a broad sword, brain sucking zombies lead by Santa who want to go shopping at IKEA, incompetent arc angel who likes snickers, and a talking fruit bat? I found the story to be v...

Kitchen sink wackiness and a troop of tropes parade through a book not half as hilarious as I hoped.
In a barely fictional California coastal town - that's about two hours from where I live and, to the writer's credit, I feel pretty sure I've been there - the locals of a sleepy tourist town prepa...

This is another Christopher Moore book I have enjoyed reading, and they have all been hilarious.
Very funny and it had that Christopher Moore kookiness, even some returns of fun characters.
If you like zombies, you may like this.
But this is not one that I would recommend to begin reading his works...

The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror was my first Christopher Moore novel. This novel is not the type of book I normally read.
The plot was quite thin but there were tons of funny scenes that made me giggle and snicker (it wasn't funny enough to make me laugh out loud). Ho...

Con la advertencia más divertida que hay al iniciar la historia nos adentramos a la historia de un pequeño pueblo afectado por las estupidez de un ángel...que no es la primera vez que se equivoca
"No era su primera misión de natividad. No, de hecho, había sido el encargado de la primera de todas,...

I just picked this book for our book club's December read but couldn't wait until December to read it. I guess you can say that a little Christmas mayhem is good for any time of the year. And if you think Christmas tales are rather lame, peruse this single paragraph at the beginning of the novel....

Its utterly rediculous, but its also laugh out loud FUNNY. Im listening on audio book and I've never enjoyed doing laundry more. Its totally odd ball, irreverent, immature, deviously clever and just plain silly, as are most of Moore's books. It doesn't matter if you find the story "believeable" i...

3 stars: It starts weak, you know that snarky humour that can wear thin real fast? Then he switches to crude. Crude done well can be hilarious and Moore’s a master. It’s a bizarre story packed with quirky characters, an action packed little page turner. Throw in a cemetery full of gossipy dead p...

This really had some potential, and some of the stuff was downright hilarious. But it did seem to run a bit long at times. Still, Christopher Moore is a funny dude and I'll read more of his stuff.
Plus, the audio was dead-on. The narrator, Tony Roberts, had a great voice for narration an...

This book had me rooting for the poor dippy angel trying to help the poor boy.
I almost dropped this book into the bathtub from laughing so hard.
IT's that cute.
