This is such a funny book. I have a new favorite author to add to my list! It is cleverly written, lots of unique phrasing and imaginative adjectives and descriptions. But the bottom line: I cared about the characters and thought it was hilarious and very inventive.

When it comes to writing intelligent comedy, Christopher Moore is one of my favorites. This book cracked me up with some of the crazy stuff in it. My review on this one is short because I really liked the book and recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor that can handle things that would be offensive to the more "conservative" reader.

Brilliant humor and fantasy that reminds me of Terry Pratchett only written in a modern theatre.

I always used to say that anyone that didn't think Christopher Moore wasn't funny was crazy. Amazingly enough, I've met some seemingly sane people that think he's not funny. They must be crazy. Moore is hilarious. I want crawl into his brain and find out where he comes up with these tall tales. He is one sick and twisted individual and well, I like that.

This book was another hit. Funny, way over the top and laugh out loud. It opens with a larger sea beast trying to get it on with a tanker truck (which subsequently explodes - no, I'm not kidding) and moves on from there with a fish-fetish pharmacist, an ex warrior babe that lives in a trailer park and so on and so forth.

Moore's ability to write these interesting characters along with the outlandish tales make his books a must read on my list. Make sure you read this one. Yes, it's a bit over-the-top, but, it's Christopher Moore. Duh.
