I read the book before I bought the audio, and I couldn't put it down, the story was so compelling the characters so relatable and the humor so quirky that I knew before I'd finished that Mr. Moore was my new favorite author. And when i bought the audio I was not disappointed the narrator did an amazing job. A MUST BUY
My buddy recommended this and it was terrific. The novel itself was great, but I don't know how I'll listen to any other Moore novels that aren't read by Stevens - he did a terrific job!
This was the first Christopher Moore book I've experienced, and after reading a few others I rate this as my favorite. His sarcastic humor is thoroughly entertaining, the story kept me captivated from page one right until the end, and Fisher Stevens was the perfect narrator for this story.
This isn't my type of book, but surprisingly, I took a chance based on the reviews and it is as good as everyone says.
I thought this book was an absolute hoot!! I could have done without the intermittent musical interludes and some of the unnecessary swearing, but the story was really good and laugh out loud funny in places. The narrator was perfect for the main character. Loved it.
Great commute killer at the end, just like the rest of this author's books although at first I struggled to keep listening. If you like this kind of humor and do not shy away from some R-rated language, this is an easy and not terribly taxing way to pass time. Maybe not his best work, but easy, entertaining listen nevertheless.
This was the first book I ever listen to because I enjoy the act of reading so much that I felt audio would be a let down. A friend convinced me to try it and I absolutely loved this book! Fisher Stevens is an exceptional narrator, even though it seemed to take him a few minutes to get the hang of it. Get past the first 10 minutes and you will be hooked.
The story is quirky and great and I definitely recommend it. I will read and listen to Christopher Moore again!
This book was so enjoyable I was sorry to have it end! Fisher Stevens was a brilliant narrator and I laughed out loud alot! The story was so quirky and the characters so likeable that I felt like I had made all new friends. Really, give this book a try if you like funny, kind of dark quirky books!
