Hi All,

I just got "A Dirty Job" in the mail yesterday and got to read some today. I'm on page 180 and stopped to check out the forum.

I tried to skim through potential spoilers, like he meets up with a tunnel chick. Lalalalalalala........I'm not listening.

So far, this is laugh out loud funny and the opening chapter was short, sweet and can't put it down now grabbing.

Must keep going but wanted to share my take on this "new to me" book.

Remember not to eat or drink anything while you're reading the book-
we won't have to warn you the 2nd time... Wink

I am finished and I loved it. The theme is comforting and the good vs evil is age-old while the redemption is "a child will show them the way." A new twist on a very old tale in so many ways with a current setting.


I started to read it again but my husband wants it next which is okay since I need to eat and take in some fluids. Very Happy
