    "A Wonderful and Unforgettable Story!"

    I just want to say that if you are easily offended by anything or have a stick up your arse - you should probably stay clear of Christopher Moore all together.

    Coyote Blue is a fantastic tale of a native Crow Indian after he fled his home reservation as a young man. Denying his heritage and becoming a chameleon (of sorts) the one thing Sam cannot hide from is his spirit guide - Coyote.

    Moore weaves humor into a beautiful story making Coyote Blue an epic tale. Poor, Poor Sam...he just wants to live his life, but when Coyote shows up he ends up veered off course into a path he never intended. I full enjoyed every aspect of Coyote Blue: the Humor, the story, the characters, and everything in between. It is hard to even compare Christopher Moore with anyone else..his unique way of storytelling puts him in a class all by himself.

    Following Sam throughout this story fighting his path every step of the way really did make me think. How any incident can alter who you are and what matters most in life. We should all be thinking more about this... Sam's personal growth through Coyote Blue might leave you evaluating yourself. Coyote Blue is a truly beautiful piece of work.

    This audio book was very nicely done and felt complimentary to the story.

    "Finally got to it--worth the effort"

    I've listened to almost all of CM's other works, but for some reason avoided this one. The description just didn't grab me...don't know why. Maybe it was a fear of the author's "initial effort" and concern that he had just recently honed his craft to the fine edge that it is. Not to worry. I loved this one as much as some of the other lighter works. It can't stand up to Fool or Lamb, or probably not even Fluke (IMHO), but it had heft. It was funny, charming, witty, a little wacky; in short, all the good stuff that Moore has shown he is capable of in his later works. The age of the book makes a few isolated references dated, but you can hardly notice. A strong recommend, even if you choose it as your first one. Good character crossover, BTW, between many of the books, starting with this one.

    "Very entertaining. Well worth while."

    This is a very playful book that winds a wild life path for the main character, with the help of the Crow supernatural. The story is both funny and exciting. The characters are interesting in a very quirky way.
    I really enjoyed this book and debated giving it a 5. But, there were spots where it is not clear who is speaking and you have to rewind to make sure (if you are detail oriented), so I gave it a 4. But, altogether.... It's a very good book.

    "Liked It!"

    This was a very interesting story and we liked it. I never know where Christopher Moore is going with his stories, but we always enjoy the ride!

    "His Worst Book"

    I have read every book by Christopher Moore. He is my favorite author. This is the only book I did not like. Oh, it had its moments, of course, hinting at his brilliance that would show up in his future works, but it felt like he was just practicing when he wrote this early book.

    Narrator did a very good job. Good Moore story but not up to his later books. Still a good listen and I recommend the audiobook.

    Story
    "Spirit world jaunt"

    Coyote medicine will do you some good. The side effects can be kind of severe.

    I really liked the anti-moral stories. "One day, in the buffalo times, Coyote did _______. It was foolish, but he thought if he just tried again, maybe he could use some good cheating medicine.....". The whole idea being that the listener could obviously see the wrong and foolish things coyote did and not repeat them.

    I'll have to use them with my own kids... Maybe about the dangers of leaving their shoes in the middle of the floor.

    Like most Christopher Moore books, the idea of the story is so offbeat, it takes a while for the hook to set. But once it does, you can't put it down.
