This early work of Moore's contains everything I've grown to love about his work: fast pace, well-drawn characters, and laugh out loud moments. Just as he has successfully played with the Bible and Shakespeare, here he plays with the great Crow traditions and stories. As the book moved forward, I became more and more engrossed, waiting for my daily walk to see what would happen to the hapless Sam, stuck at the center of a Crow God's whirlwind of a tour through contemporary California. If you are a fan of Moore, you can't miss this one. If you are new, welcome!

Yes, if you have read newer Christopher Moore, this one is sure to disappoint. If you are reading it to find out where Moore started out, then it is interesting. You can really see how far he's come in developing characters, dialogue and story.
It's much like reading an early Stephen King novel like Carrie after reading Duma Key. You can see the resemblence, but the maturity shows through in the later writing.
