I think Christopher Moore is a bit like Paul Theroux - When I read his fiction I get the suspicion that he's not writing from real experience. He's writing about a world a million miles from his own. His private investigator Calvino carts around a large, heavy revolver in a humid place like Thailand - I don't think so. I've had to carry a revolver in the tropics - it's too damn awkward to do it by choice. And he handles it inappropriately. I seriously doubt that Moore has ever carried a handgun in the tropics on a regular basis. And the sex scenes! - I seriously doubt Moore has ever had sex!

Also, Moore's novels have dreadful continuity and typo errors.

Anyway, for folks who don't want to visit Amazon:

"Spirit House" (pdf) is free at

A much better book of Moore's, which appears to be based more on his real experiences: "Chairs" (pdf) is free at
