This is Christopher Moore's fourth novel, and it's exponentially better than any that have come before. It's a hilarious romp with a hero that's by turns dorky, and the coolest guy on the planet. Throw in some "Mary Kay commandos" and a talking fruit bat, and you've got several hours of the most entertaining reading ever devised.

I loved "Lamb" and thought "The Stupidest Angel" was, well, stupid. This one started out a little bit too 'out there' for me, but quickly became so upsurd that it was hilarious. I just kept wondering: How is he going to get the characters out of this one? And just what part of left field is he going to come from next? LOL!

Seriously wacky and great book! I loved this more than Bloodsucking Fiends. The ending was very satisfying. It is zany but not too bad so you get irritated. First RATE!

Personally I thought it was terrible because I'm not into whacky humor. Someone else might really get a gas out of this though.

Reading this book was like watching a "B" movie, but in a good kitschy way. It was very entertaining and I looked forward to reading it. The story line and characters were a bit absurd and silly, but I think that is what made it fun.

Pilot Tucker Case has a weakness--well, Tuck really has two--and the combination of drinking and sex in the cockpit of the pink Mary Jean Cosmetics Learjet puts him on the front page of papers all over the planet. But he finds another job with a mysterious employer--someone with a brand-new Lear 45-- who's willing to pay Tuck generously and ask no questions about his record.

I didn't think this was one of the better novels by Moore that I've read because it did have some slow spots where I got a little bored. But, overall, it's a funny read with some crazy events in it that make this author notable so you don't want to miss reading it.

I just want to begin by saying...I want a pet bat...I want one so that I can buy him tiny Ray Ban's and carry him on my shoulder like some psycho pirate...I want to fly away in a pink airplane and go to a remote island where nefarious people do questionable things to people that don't know any better...I want to get in trouble and go into hiding and discover gorgeous people that think I'm some kind of gift from the gods...*Sigh*...Moore has done it again with an upbeat zany adventure that will make you snicker, guffaw, and chortle...Love it...

Another masterpiece from Moore. Just "out there" enough to make you wonder about the guy, hilarious enough to make it hard to put down.

One of Christopher Moore's crazy books that takes your imagination on a roller coaster ride. It kept me laughing as our bumbling hero finds his way to redemption.

Funny funny funny! Love the humor of his writing, the stories are fun, entertaining and so I would of said that too style! You can't beat a talking fruit bat, a drunk pilot and an island full of naked people! Don't miss this fun time in the island.

This book is a hoot from beginning to end! What with a talking bat, a strangely endearing cannibal and stolen human organs, you can't help but wonder what the next page is going to bring. What fun!

Wryly funny. A good but not deep read.
reviewed Island of the Sequined Love Nun on
I thought this book was fun to read, but at the same time it was so completely bizarre that I felt bad filling my head with such drivel. Remote islands, talking bats, isolated people with a WWII pilot as a deity, lots of weird.

This book is hilarious. A can't put it down, laugh out loud fun read. Not for the faint of heart -- let's just say there is a pilot on the run from his former boss now running shady trips for high priestess -- and that's just a small part of it.

Another laugh out loud book by Christopher Moore.

A funny story. I liked learning more about Tucker Case and the flying fruit bat, Roberto, both of whom appear in one of Moore's later books, The Stupidest Angel. I wouldn't say this was quite up there with Lust Lizard, Practical Demonkeeping, and Bloodsucking Fiends which were my 3 favorite of his books, but it was funny as usual nonethess, and still a very enjoyable read.

Pilot Tucker Case has a weakness--well, Tuck really has two--and the combination of drinking and sex in the cockpit of the pink Mary Jean Cosmetics Learjet puts him on the front page of papers all over the planet.
But he finds another job with a mysterious employer--someone with a brand-new Lear 45-- who's willing to pay Tuck generously and ask no questions about his record.
The jet and job are on Alualu, a speck in the Pacific Ocean, and Tucker has nowhere else to go. But first he has to get to Alualu, and once there, he faces a hurricane, Shark People, atypical missionaries, and boredom.
