Secondhand Souls

In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing—and you know that ca n't be good—in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore 's delightfully funny sequel to A Dirty Job.

Feeling 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 omething to do with that big orange bridge. Death Merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. He 's rapped in body of a fourteen-inch-tall " meat " waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to convince him a suitable new body to play host.

To brin 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 ...

Dirty Job was one of my first Moore books, and also my favorite, so I was excited to find out there was a movi in the works, and when I saw my library had it, I just had to get it.So it 's with some level of succes that I must report that I did n't actuall like it all that much.One of the big disappointments was that Sophie, who you would nee to hav pretty main character in tha retellin, is pretty much relegated to second-tier player, again, and does n't always do all that much- because reasons.As to the tory itself, there is both too much going on, and ot enough.

It 's almost like a bunch of old friends sitting around, drinking a coffe, and remembering their glory days ...

Normally when I read authors that are " out there ", I quickly loose interest, but Moore just usually does it right.

Other entertaining characters are ghosts at the Golden Gate Bridge who have stories to tell and the 'squirrel people' ( made of animal parts) that live under the Buddhist center.All kinds of kooky ( and sometimes deadly) occurrences eventually lead to he tory 's climax, where Charlie 's team goes head to head with the Underworld creatures.Though the story is a sequel it can be read as a standalone.

Estas almas perdidas desbalancean un ya precario orden de la vida y la muerte, y nuevos oscuros poderes emergen para restaurar el equilibrio, por cualquier medio necesario.

Aunque Charlie sigue manteniendo el estrellato, para mí las partes de Lily y Wiggly Charlie fueron lo mejor del libro.

Y la feroz franqueza de Sophie fue algo más allá de adorable.Una lectura entretenida y graciosa, con un lindo final para esta duología tan extraña.

Fantasy readers will also enjoy his inclusion of occult and mythological elements as well as more than passing knowledge of eastern philosophy.Good fun from a novelis who knows all about writing entertaining books.
