This is story of King Lear through the eyes of his fool (court jester) named Pocket. Like his other stories his characters are witty, unique and at times crass. I will warn you that there is colorful language throughout the story. Not the normal language you would hear on cable TV, but new colorful language that only CM could create. There are lots of sexual references as well. If you are not completely opposed to these things you will enjoy this book. If you enjoy witches and potions, knights and wenches, kings that go crazy, dysfunctional families and the occasional shagging then this is the book for you. The narrator does a good job and adds to the story with his appropriate accent. It is a great listen and will have you laughing out loud.
I had enjoyed every book from Christopher Moore that is on Audible until this book. This is one of his older books and it just doesn't hold up with the likes of Fool, You Suck, and Lamb. I kept waiting for something good and it never came. The narrator did a fine job. Listen to all of the other stories and if you have a credit you have to use or loose try Coyote Blue.
