Micro Mention "A Dirty Job"

Christopher Moore

I would be lying if I claimed that this book didn't make me laugh. It did, however, also make me cringe quite a few times. The humor is firmly of its decade when the book was published and highlights how things have changed.

By the end of it, I'm pretty sure I heard the term beta male more times than any one person should have to in one lifetime. Maybe that's an awfully beta male thing of me thing to say, but I can't help but roll my eyes when people talk about alpha males, and the sentiment is apparently equally true of beta too.

Overall, I found the concept of this novel to be fun, Charlie Asher has to balance his new life of being an agent of death—as in the grim reaper—with being a single father. It's a funny setup, and the humor screams of the 2000s.
