Verily speaks Christopher Moore, much-beloved scrivener and peerless literary jester, who hath writteneth much that is of grand wit and belly-busting mirth, including such laureled bestsellers of the Times of Olde Newe Yorke as Lamb, A Dirty Job, and You Suck: A Love Story. Now he takes on no less than the legendary Bard himself (with the utmost humility and respect) in a twisted and insanely funny tale of a moronic monarch and his deceitful daughters—a rousing story of plots, subplots, counterplots, betrayals, war, revenge, bared bosoms, unbridled lust . . . and a ghost (there's always a bloody ghost), as seen through the eyes of a man wearing a codpiece and bells on his head.

Fool follows the same events as King Lear (or just about) and gives a very strong argument for the real main character in th...

I'll try this another time, but I'm not truly interested in this. Hopefully I'll like it.

4.0 Fool: A Novel
I loved it!! It was rude, crude and absolutely bawdy--just like a lot of Elizabethan entertainment. I probably would not have gotten it if we didn't have tickets to see King Lear in just a couple of weeks but I am so glad that I did. I will definitely read this one again--if for nothing else than th...

Yet another outrageously hilarious tome from the keyboard of Christopher Moore! I know for a fact that not all of my friends and family will like Fool, but many will love it as much as I did, and many will be rolling around laughing, in fits of laughter, as I was. The jester of the court of King Lea...
