Staff Reviews


This is Moore’s best one yet! Completely irreverent with a take on Shakespeare that will leaving you laughing out loud and the Bard turning in his grave! The language is rough, but he warns you of that in the beginning of the book. Consider this: when the author’s note/warning leaves you chuckling, the book can only get better, and this one does. Read, laugh, laugh again, wipe your eyes, and recommend it to your friends!

I’m a huge fan of Christopher Moore. He’s yet to write a book I don’t like. Moore’s novels are populated by such memorable characters as Roberto the Fruit Bat, Molly Michon, and Minty Fresh. None of these compares to Pocket, the star of Fool. I’m a Shakespeare scholar through and through, and Moore quite literally butchers the Bard’s work in this parody but it had me rolling with laughter page after page. Moore’s incredible characterizations and vivid descriptions make the novel play like a film in the mind while you read it. Moore says it best in the warning at the beginning of the book: “This is a bawdy tale. Herein you will find gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity, as well as nontraditional grammar, split infinitives, and the odd wank . . . If that's the sort of thing you think you might enjoy, then you have happened upon the perfect story!"

Description


"Hilarious, always inventive, this is a book for all, especially uptight English teachers, bardolaters, and ministerial students."
--Dallas Morning News

Fool--the bawdy and outrageous New York Times bestseller from the unstoppable Christopher Moore--is a hilarious new take on William Shakespeare's King Lear...as seen through the eyes of the foolish liege's clownish jester, Pocket. A rousing tale of "gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity," Fool joins Moore's own Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck as modern masterworks of satiric wit and sublimely twisted genius, prompting Carl Hiassen to declare Christopher Moore "a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word."
