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.

    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.

    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 !

    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 !

    "fantastic, funny, light, and enjoyable"

    Another entertaining tale from Moore. Even though there's some depth to the story it remains light hearted. Excellent narration and performance.

    "gotta love a sky priestess"

    Christopher Moore has never let me down. I believe I have now finished all of his books. Once again he's done a great job. Characters are always flawed and lovable or detestable depending on the charter or your opinion. Definitely a good read love the narrator hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

    Story
    "Enjoyable"

    Sunny, happy, cheery and funny. It kept me interested and curious about what would happen next. The story did require some suspension of reality, but once excepted the story flowed and was believable. I found myself imagining the story as a movie.
