    The other Christopher Moore Books I've listen too have been entertaining. This one is doesn't even compare. Don't waste a credit on this one!

    "Not bad"

    I really enjoy Christopher Moore's work. The audible books I've listened to have been entertaining. However, this was not my favorite. I don't think it was the story itself, but the narrator. He was dry, and didn't seem interested in portraying the story effectively. I would recommend, but be prepared to sit through the narrator's dullness to enjoy the story.

    Story
    "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.

    "Not one of Moore's better books."
    Would you try another book from Christopher Moore and/or James Jenner?

    I will try other Christopher Moore books, because of my prior experiance, not because of this book.


    Was Coyote Blue worth the listening time?

    Not really. I was disappointed with this book, as compared to Moore's other works.

    Story
    "An escapist romp."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Coyote Blue to be better than the print version?

    There is nothing more fun than a beach, free time, loss of ambition, imbibition , and a Christopher Moore tome. It is so hard to hold one's neck and arm up (old sports injury) and read a great work of literature in the blazing sun, so I plug in my ear buds and listen to that great fellow


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The coyote gets to do anything he wants, and I mean ANYTHING. Don't we all want that, plus the supernatural powers. What a combo.


    What about James Jenner’s performance did you like?

    He took the work right out of my rotator cuff arm while recovering.


    Any additional comments?

    First read and given to friends in book form, with type on paper, it is still a great

    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.

    "could be better"

    This story about a Native American who becomes a success in the white world, posing as a white man until his spirit advisor -- Coyote -- arrives is an okay listen but doesn't seem to fit in any particular genre. It is at times funny, sad, and just plain strange. Moore has done better.
