- A Novel
- By: Christopher Moore
- Narrated by: Euan Morton
- Length: 8 hrs and 40 mins
Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.
Mr Moore does it again.

When I received the email from Audible announcing this was on audio I jumped for joy. I started looking last week at the library to see if had been ordered there yet. Thank you audible for making this a special, I am broke and did not want to miss this book. After listening I would have paid full price, it is typical Christopher Moore. Funny, intelligent, brilliant. Everything you expect from him and more. It makes me want to actually read King Lear, but I won't so as not to ruin Moore's version. I just finished it this morning and plan to start it again to catch things I might have missed the first time.
There are quite a few characters to keep track of but the reader does an excellent job with the voices so you can tell them apart. I love Drool, and Pocket. Do not pass this one by, it might just become my favorite!

When David Zetrakis, the producer of a popular soap opera, is found shot to death, Wollie Shelley finds herself caught up in the murder. Zetrakis was one of the many Mr. Wrongs in Wollie's career as a serial dater, and her friend Joey has emerged as the media's prime suspect. A hot-tempered celebrity who had dated Zetrakis and was fired from his show some years ago, Joey has inherited a million-dollar Klimt painting from him. But Joey is not the only potential suspect.

Wolly strikes again
Wolly and her friends are back and better than ever. After reading Dead Ex I wanted to go back and re-read the previous two books.
If you have not read Dating Dead Men, do so.
Wolly, her brother and Uncle are a good time.
