If you are not yet an Audible.com member, this is enough incentive to get you started. The reading by Rob Inglish is as magical and intriguing as the story itself.
I was disappointed in this story. Mostly because the Book of Fate was so much fun and the premise of this story was intriguing. Sadly, it was maudlin, the twists were foreseeable long before they happened, the angst became unbearable and the hero was so whiny and annoying, I wanted to shoot him myself.
I can't remember the last time I've enjoyed a story so much. It's is funny, imaginative and outrageous. Every character is rounded out with a minimum of background work, with the exception of Fool. They just walk in and sit right down - often on your lap. Christopher Moore's storytelling is intimate and familiar with nary a smirk to be heard. Euan Morton's reading makes even the most bawdy language seem as proper as an afternoon tea and brings all the characters to technicolor life. If I have any complaint, it's that it is too short. I could listen to this hilarious tale for days on end. Shagalicious!
