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.
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 !
The Ending... Few Authors can close a story like this one.
Tuck, Kimmie and the Sky Priestess !
Cannibals can come in Handy !
A Great Book, one I wasn't expecting to be what I wanted, but I liked it anyway !
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.
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.
