The book is hilarious. Typical Moore-like dialogues which are the more funny in the Shakespearian surroundings.
I think the reader is really good - he has a very skilled way of adapting his voice to the charactes in an entertaining way. It is a pleasure to distinguish the characters from each others by recognising the readers change of talking. Great.
Don't listen to this if you are a prude, but if you enjoy Shakespeare for his bawdy earthiness, you'll probably love this book, written in very much the same spirit. I really enjoyed this rethinking of the Lear tragedy. Not politically correct but lots of fun!
Although I've never been a huge fan of Shakespeare, Christopher Moore is one of my favorites. And thanks to his creative reinterpretation of "King Lear," I'm hoping he'll do more Shakespearean novels - and soon! I'm certain he can make even the grim tale of Macbeth sparkle with humor, fun and vulgarity.
The narration made this book a super audio read. Euan Morton is wonderful!
I love Christopher Moore, and this did not fail!
I have not laughed this hard in a very long time.
I highly recommend this book if you want a great raunchy laugh, ignore is shagging, shameful buggery or tom foolery offend thy.
Fool is a testament to his humorous heart. Christopher Moore’s ability to weave such a tale and create laughs in the strangest of places continues to impress. Truly an enjoyable audio book. The narrator was a perfect choice and his performance was the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store next.
it would be hard to believe that anyone with a sense of humor would not love this book. Well written, creative and a great story line. Also, well read. You should not miss this.
Loved this book! Laughed out loud several times. Makes me want to read or see more Shakespeare. I would have loved to tell friends about some of the funniest parts, but it's one of those "you had to be there". All I can do is recommend the book!
Just fabulous. Funny, irreverent, complex, full of twists and turns and more great language than you'll find in a book twice its size. Don't hesitate to get this book.
Picked this up on a whim and must say I was glad I did. "Fool" is funny and clever, in a very midevil way. A good story, packaged with a great narrator, makes for a terrific listen. Pocket is a wonderful protagonist, who manages to poke fun at himself as often as the other characters. Am looking forward to listening to more of Mr. Moore to see if the magic is just with this book/narrator or if he is to become a new favorite.
Long time fan of Christopher Moore and never, ever disappointed. This is my first audiobook of his work and I didn't think I could love him Moore! Oh how wrong I was. If you're not a priss this is a goldmine MUST LISTEN/read.
