I'm a fan of Christopher Moore ever since the "Gospel According to Biff", though this is the first audiobook version I've listened to.
The characters are flawed in some interesting ways. A bit cartoony, but if you buy into that, it's solid.
Roberto, the Fruit Bat. Or Vincent. Or both at the same time. :)
It's a fine name.
Oliver Wyman's voice is not the same as my internal voice when I'm reading, which threw me off for the first several chapters. That's my own personal jarring, YMMV.
Hilarious, Well-Read, Unique.
Tucker crashing the bright pink plane.
He does an amazing job with all the different voices and really made the characters come to life.
Definitely a tie between Mary Jean and Kimi.
A wonderful book and definitely worth a listen and a read!!
the story was funny, fast,well written.
the cast of characters
he had a total grasp of the story.
i had many good laughs.
i would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something different and needs a good laugh.
Too old to rock and roll; too young to die.
I would recommend this book to anybody who likes a good story with a lot of humor, some of it quite grim.
The ending is classic.
He does voices very well. He's a good reader. What else is there to say.
It totally made me laugh.
This book was so fun to listen to! The characters come to life from the hand of Mr. Moore, but Oliver Wyman does a great job giving them a voice! I particularly loved the voice of "Kimmie the Navigator" This book does not drag in any chapter it is beat after beat of action and perfect story telling. This story may not be everyons cup of tea, but if you want to hear a funny story give it a try.
Oh man so many great parts. But I would say with out spoiling anything. When Vincent tells Malink to build the ladders and he does it on faith alone. Sort of like Noah.
Hard to decide from Malink or Sarapul, but I would say Malink. He did well for the shark people. He trusted in Vincent.
It's a laugh out loud read
There is no comparison
His overall enthusiasm
Laugh until you cry
A funky, funny, exceptional novel!
I love to read and I read for fun. Escape and imagination are great reasons to love a book.
This was a huge disappointment. Practical Demonkeeping is great but this book just drags........and drags........ I have tried and tried to get to a funny part but by the end of part 1 of the download, I still did not enjoy it. So I just gave it up.
Whimsical, Fun, unabashed adventures of our unlikely hero, Tucker; his man-woman sidekick and the talking fruit bat. Pure fantasy with a surprisingly thought provoking outcome.
This is my least favorite of Christopher Moore's titles. It was just so out there and a little hard to follow at times. I liked it... but didn't love it.
Not nearly as good as Moore's other books. I'm a huge fan of the You Suck series, and have liked a few others like Lamb, but this one was not funny. It didn't make any sense and was so out there that I didn't laugh once. I stopped half-way through.
