I really liked this book AND the narrating. Two thumbs up! I was apprehensive at first, but won't hesitate with the bizarre subjects moving forward. :-) I would totally recommend this book :-)
Christopher Moore as always is hilarious, This is not meant for serious hearted and there are certainly moments you need to suspend belief, However your usually laughing to hard to care.
this like all moore's books is a fantasy, a fairy tale of gigantic proportion totally light and funny.
I have listened to many of Moore's books and bought this one reluctantly. The plot seemed silly and I couldn't imagine how a sea beast in a small town would be plausible (if any of his stuff can be described that way) or made entertaining. When it was done, it had become one of my favorites (behind Fool and Lamb). It's hard to say why, though, since the plot was as odd as Moore's usual stuff; it just had that vibe that made it fun and quirky. I smiled a lot. In a way, it reminded me a bit of Hiassen, but without the really tripped out characters (and, of course, that extra touch of whimsy that only a fantasy creature can bring). If you are afraid it's too weird, don't be--it's fun.
My grandchildren think I'm silly when I make up poems for them. My wife thinks I'm silly when I suggest that she should take out the trash, just once. But this book is just too silly.
great reader! vastly enjoyable story with witty characters. ..mr. moore does it again! splendid! grand!
Moore is one of my favorite authors, one who makes me laugh out loud as I'm listening to my audio book while making my long commute. Delightful story tellung.
Not quite as heady as Lamb and Fool. But, I do love me that Christopher Moore humor.
Always enjoyable combination of Author and Narrator. Fun book it's just not as good as most of Christopher Moore's other stories. This is my second visit to The Cove and I found "Practical Demon Keeping" the better book, but this story still should be read and or listened to by Christopher Moore fans.
