"Tautly written with a zest for the absurd and the unpredictable." (New York Times Book Review)
I will try other Christopher Moore books, because of my prior experiance, not because of this book.
Not really. I was disappointed with this book, as compared to Moore's other works.
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
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.
He took the work right out of my rotator cuff arm while recovering.
First read and given to friends in book form, with type on paper, it is still a great
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.
Let me first just start off by saying that I absolutely LOVED Bloodsucking Fiends, YouSuck, and Bite Me but this worry was weird and all over the place. It took too long to get to the plot and the point of the story. That'll teach me for buying a book just because it's on sale...
I am so bored that I stopped during the fourth chapter. I read that some of the reviewers say that it picks up later but this is long enough for me to go with no interest.
Coyote is a God more interested in the stories his people tell about them than about them. No part of the book takes place in San Francisco and missing is the Emperor of San Francisco. "Also missing is the phrase heinous blank most foul.The Emperor of San Francisco is also missing from this book. The reader has no idea about the timeframe. For example, does, this book take place before or after A Dirty Job?"
