Publisher's Summary

Diana's life was in a rut - she hated her job, she was perpetually single, and she needed a place to live. But then the perfect apartment came along. It seemed too good to be true - because it was. As it turns out, the apartment was already inhabited - by monsters.
Vom the Hungering was the first to greet Diana and to warn her that his sole purpose in life was to eat everything in his path. This poses a problem for Diana since she's in his path...and is forbidden from ever leaving the apartment. It turns out though that there are older and more ancient monstrous entities afoot - ones who want to devour the moon and destroy the world as we know it. Can Diana, Vom, and the other horrors stop this from happening? Maybe if they can get Vom to stop eating everything...and everyone.

Douglas Adams on Acid

Thoroughly enjoyed this very strange little book. If Douglas Adams had been dropping acid, I suspect he would have come up with something like this. The female narrator, Khristine Hvam, gives a delightful performance. This is my 3rd Martinez AudioBook, after "Divine Misfortune" and "Emperor Mollusk vs. the Sinister Brain." I've thoroughly enjoyed all three of these weird books but "Chasing the Moon" was decidedly the weirdest and, perhaps, the one I enjoyed most. I hope to find more Martinez on AudioBooks as soon as possible.

stupid

I can't think of any other word. This book was just stupid. It made no sense whatsoever. Save your money and buy almost anything else.
