Reading Challenge - Book Seven
Lamb, by Christopher Moore, is also subtitled, 'The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.' It was pretty amusing. Biff (aka Levi) talks about Josh's (yes, the informal version of Yeshua's name) formative years. The pair were besties with Maggie (yup, Mary of Magdala) right until the went to the east to learn from the three wise men.
It was an amusing read, and I especially enjoyed the modern-day twist at the end, as well as the author's after-words. I laughed out loud several times and read passages to my husband.
I do find it a bit sad that I have an old composition book that listed the books I read back when I was single. There were usually anywhere from four to ten books every week. Now? I've made it through seven so far in three-and-a-half months.
