So I’ve mentioned before that Practical Demonkeeping is one of my favorite Christopher Moore books. I reread it recently because I found a copy of the sequel at Half Price Books and wanted to refresh my memory of the first book before reading the second. The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove is that sequel and it was honestly pretty terrible. It doesn’t feature hardly any of the characters from the first book, although it does have the same setting. I’m not really sure why he bothered to make it a sequel at all, instead of a standalone book.
It’s about a sea beast (that I had trouble picturing is anything besides Godzilla) with the ability to make people like, super horny. It wreaks havoc on the small town in California, and our unlikely heroes band together to deal with it. The book is sort of funny but not overly so, and the plot is stupid-stupid rather than fun-stupid. I say skip this one and read Lamb twice.
