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

    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.

    Story
    "Beware of headhunters and fruit bats."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Island of the Sequined Love Nun to be better than the print version?

    Definitely a fun way to enjoy the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flawed character of Tuck was enjoyable to follow. He was a hot mess and his problems just kept getting more interesting.


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

    Vincent was a hoot!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Much too long for that, and it was more enjoyable to savor.

    "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.
