Lamb by Christopher Moore has been by far the best read of the year so far.
Lamb is the alternate gospel of Christ, as recorded by His childhood friend Bif, who was blacked out of the conventional Gospel for reasons that I should not be revealing in a review, especially one as brief as this. A very interesting representation of Jesus (or “Joshua” as Biff knows him), bringing out the human side of the messiah without really belittling the divinity associated with him. I particularly liked the ending where the story merges seamlessly with crucifiction and resurrection of the real Gospel.
A must read for anyone who likes humour, and is not offended by his version of the Messiah’s life.
