Hilarious! Moore has a gift for many good laughs, and great timing.
Any book I want to immediately re-read is a keeper. I read BPC in one sitting. The pace stayed solid.
Also seamlessly wove Shakespeare in, which is a good trick.
Take one small kingdom, with lots of problems, one recently dead king who didn't leave an heir, and two conniving uncles who want to make some bucks turning the kingdom over to its less-than-friendly neighbor, then add one college student who also happens to be the illegitimate son of the ruler......and you have "Bad Prince Charlie."
Charlie has been convince by his scheming uncles to take the throne so that they can make some money by selling out to the king next door. But much to their surprise, he turns out to be a pretty good king! What happens when you add a pot-smoking priestess and a beautiful Lady who doesn't mind the thought of killing a person or two standing in the way of her becoming queen? Charlie ends up neck-deep in trouble!
A VERY funny book, good choice for both fans of fantasy and comedy. Highly recommended!
