    Very good!

    Going from plot line to plot line, Christopher reimagines Shakespeare in Venice - with the Fool. Not as tight as "Fool," but still a great read!

    more from this reviewer

    Another great vacation read from Christopher Moore.

    This follows Pocket, Drool, Jeff, and Jones from "Fool" onto medieval Venice. Moore then mashes up the characters and plots from "Othello", "The Merchant of Venice", some Edgar Allen Poe, Marco Polo, and a Serpent. Hijinx and hilarity ensue. Witty, snarky, and smart. Can't wait for more from Moore! And vacation to go with it...

    Pocket, the fool from "Fool", returns in this mash-up

    Pocket, the fool from "Fool", returns in this mash-up of Shakespeare's Othello and The Merchant of Venice. It's a typical Christopher Moore book, which is to say highly entertaining, well-plotted, humorous but with moments of genuine pathos, all told in language both witty and profane. Good things happen to the good guys and bad things to the bad guys (eventually), there's a bantering Chorus and, of course, a ghost. Great fun and over all too quickly.

    A Truly Interesting Mind At Work

    Once again Mr. Moore has craftily combined the Bard's works into a devious and entertaining experience.

    Christopher Moore is a mad man! Like reading Shakespeare, I foun

    Christopher Moore is a mad man!
    Like reading Shakespeare, I found it took a little while before I got comfortable with the writing style and stopped noticing it. Then I was breezing along with a riotous tale.
    If you know any Shakespeare, you are likely to recognize some familiar people and events. If you don't know Shakespeare (and I hazard to guess he would disavow anything to do with this book) It matters not.
    A fine set up of politics and skulduggery with humor, lust, and knavery a plenty.
    (See that--He's corrupted my writing style!)
    Not for the faint of heart or those bothered by "questionably" language.
    You have been warned.

    Another Great Christopher Moore story.

    Pre-ordered the nook book and waited excitedly for it. Well worth the wait. His stories are so funny it you have the right or should I say a wry sense of humor. I'm happy that he has another loveable serpent like the love lust lizard. I have enjoyed every one of his books. He needs to hurry up and write another for me.
