It is an amusing tale which had me laughing out loud at times ~ which can be embarrasing in public! when no one can see your earbuds!
Yes. The narrator added to the character. There is also an interview with the author at the end of the book where he went over his thoughts and writing process for this book. It was entertaining as well.
I haven't read King Lear, but it was obvious that the author did a lot of research on Shakespeare when writing this book. It was whitty and entertaining. It was a bit vulgar for me though.
Sarcastic attitude, catch phrase, British accent.
This is now my favorite of Christopher Moore's books.
This is my 3rd listen, the story character and plot are just fascinating
Wicked but are just well told, full of imagination and just plain fun
The characters personality
Pocket found out that the King as a very bad person!
Fool just takes you away from the normal with fun and wit.
Christopher Moore packs so much humor in his books that it is impossible to catch everything the first time. This book is no exception. Keep away from children and "sensitive" mother-in-laws!
Again, I find myself thoroughly enjoying a Christopher Moore book. Funny, witty, and well read. A great choice, especially for fans of Shakespeare. I am tempted to buy for my 14 year old, who will soon be struggling through Shakespeare. Great stuff!
I thoroughly enjoyed the book - plenty of laugh out loud moments as usual with Christopher Moore. However, for me it does not rank up there with Lamb and A Dirty Job - in particular I thought parts of the second half of the book dragged out a bit.
Have read all Chris's books and listened to them all as well. For some reason I had trouble getting into this read, but the listen was spectacular. The narrator was great, the jokes were spot on, everything came together for me w/ the audio book!

I needed a break from all the serious books I had been listening to, and this was the perfect book. The old english and bauwdy language just makes ya laugh - The Fool is a hit and great way to read shakespeare - unless your a prude.
