Early Moore

Narrator did a very good job. Good Moore story but not up to his later books. Still a good listen and I recommend the audiobook.

Spirit world jaunt

Coyote medicine will do you some good. The side effects can be kind of severe.

I really liked the anti-moral stories. "One day, in the buffalo times, Coyote did _______. It was foolish, but he thought if he just tried again, maybe he could use some good cheating medicine.....". The whole idea being that the listener could obviously see the wrong and foolish things coyote did and not repeat them.

I'll have to use them with my own kids... Maybe about the dangers of leaving their shoes in the middle of the floor.

Like most Christopher Moore books, the idea of the story is so offbeat, it takes a while for the hook to set. But once it does, you can't put it down.

Not one of his better books!

Any additional comments?

The other Christopher Moore Books I've listen too have been entertaining. This one is doesn't even compare. Don't waste a credit on this one!

Not one of Moore's better books.

Would you try another book from Christopher Moore and/or James Jenner?

I will try other Christopher Moore books, because of my prior experiance, not because of this book.

Was Coyote Blue worth the listening time?

Not really. I was disappointed with this book, as compared to Moore's other works.

An escapist romp.

Would you consider the audio edition of Coyote Blue to be better than the print version?

There is nothing more fun than a beach, free time, loss of ambition, imbibition , and a Christopher Moore tome. It is so hard to hold one's neck and arm up (old sports injury) and read a great work of literature in the blazing sun, so I plug in my ear buds and listen to that great fellow

Who was your favorite character and why?

The coyote gets to do anything he wants, and I mean ANYTHING. Don't we all want that, plus the supernatural powers. What a combo.

What about James Jenner’s performance did you like?

He took the work right out of my rotator cuff arm while recovering.

Any additional comments?

First read and given to friends in book form, with type on paper, it is still a great

could be better

This story about a Native American who becomes a success in the white world, posing as a white man until his spirit advisor -- Coyote -- arrives is an okay listen but doesn't seem to fit in any particular genre. It is at times funny, sad, and just plain strange. Moore has done better.

Could have done without it...

Let me first just start off by saying that I absolutely LOVED Bloodsucking Fiends, YouSuck, and Bite Me but this worry was weird and all over the place. It took too long to get to the plot and the point of the story. That'll teach me for buying a book just because it's on sale...

ZZzzzzz

I am so bored that I stopped during the fourth chapter. I read that some of the reviewers say that it picks up later but this is long enough for me to go with no interest.
