Publisher's Summary

Take a wonderfully crazed excursion into the demented heart of a tropical paradise - a world of cargo cults, cannibals, mad scientists, ninjas, and talking fruit bats. Our bumbling hero is Tucker Case, a hopeless geek trapped in a cool guy's body, who makes a living as a pilot for the Mary Jean Cosmetics Corporation. But when he demolishes his boss's pink plane during a drunken airborne liaison, Tuck must run for his life from Mary Jean's goons. Now there's only one employment opportunity left for him: piloting shady secret missions for an unscrupulous medical missionary and a sexy blond high priestess on the remotest of Micronesian hells. Here is a brazen, ingenious, irreverent, and wickedly funny novel from a modern master of the outrageous.

©1997 Christopher Moore; (P)2009 HarperCollins Publishers

    "gratuitous everything and not funny"

    I really enjoy listening to Christopher Moore's other books, but this one was pretty terrible. The main character was unappealing, as was almost every other character, the story was predictable and there was a plethora of patronizing and offensive stereotypes littered throughout the book. Give it a skip.

    "hilarious ride"

    Moore never ceases in giving some hilarious, loud out loud, I can't believe he just did that moments. the first and last hours of the books are by far my favorite... eat your heart out Tom Clancy/Jack Reacher/James Bond-loving readers!!!!

    "Funny, sexy and well written!"

    I really enjoyed this book. Much like his other books it's quirky with a sci-fi and murder mystery feel.

    "Another amazing story by Moore!"

    So while reading this book I found myself wondering how Moore came up with the characters and story line and decided he filled a fishbowl with slips of papers each one written with random and unrelated characters, locations and scenarios. He then pulled those papers out as he wrote and voila, a story is born. Either that, or this man is crazy creative. Fun story!

    Story
    "Mostly racism and sexism without much humor."

    I usually enjoy Christopher Moore. I usually delight in his sophomoric satire. However, this book lacked the actual satire and just spouted misogyny and racism. The great white men must come save the poor, gullible, dumb brown people from being taken advantage of by the evil bitch-harpy. If I had read this novel first, I wouldn't have read anything else of Christopher Moore. You can do better, Chris.

    "Serius, Light, a Talking Bat, Canibals and More!"
    What did you love best about Island of the Sequined Love Nun?

    I thought this would be funnier, but it was a story of Redemption in a Funny way.
    The Ending, the best I have read in a long, long time. It really made the Book !


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Island of the Sequined Love Nun?

    The Ending... Few Authors can close a story like this one.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    Tuck, Kimmie and the Sky Priestess !


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Cannibals can come in Handy !


    Any additional comments?

    A Great Book, one I wasn't expecting to be what I wanted, but I liked it anyway !
