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

    "Save your credits..."

    Not nearly as good as Moore's other books. I'm a huge fan of the You Suck series, and have liked a few others like Lamb, but this one was not funny. It didn't make any sense and was so out there that I didn't laugh once. I stopped half-way through.

    "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.

    "Refreshingly original"

    Most books these days consist of a new twist of a pot that has been done before. But not this one. This is an original idea that was funny, captivating, well written and then narrator was wonderful.

    "Very Funny, Worth the Credit"
    Would you listen to Island of the Sequined Love Nun again? Why?

    I love Christopher Moore's books. I really enjoyed this story and found it fast paced and engaging.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were no slow parts in this story.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver Wyman did such a good job I had to see what other books he narrated and ended up trying Monster Hunter International based mainly on his performance (and the good reviews it had as well). I can honestly say after listening to both stories I am a fan of Wyman, he does a great job of creating unique easily recognizable character voices that enhance the story.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed this story check out Razor Girl by Carl Hiaasen

    "Better to read than listen"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is one of my many favorites from Christopher Moore. The story is funny, witty and all around a great read. The narrator however KILLED this story for me. His uninteresting and boring tone made this book unable to finish. I tried to listen 3 times and would either fall asleep or just get irritated by his terrible voice and inability to make the characters come alive for me. I hate to be so critical, but I was super excited to have this book as a go to when I want a good laugh. Sadly, not even the funny parts were funny because his voice was so uninspiring. Euan Morton who narrated the Serpent of Venice series was AMAZING, so maybe try him again!!!

    "Kept me wanting more"

    Semi-funny. Very worth listening to. I got this book based on reviews of it being hilarious. I found it to be a good book based on me wanting to hear more. Hilarious, not really. Interesting plot line, yes. It did have me laughing at certain parts. I found it to be a good past time listen to.
