      Christopher Moore has a twisted sense of humor, his narrative style is Kurt Vonnegut meets the Adams family with a dose of John Steinbeck and a Faulkner chaser Very funny This one is set in his Pine Cove creation and concerns a Puff the magic dragon with a decidedly lascivious nature.

      When high school English teachers define fiction as the willing suspension of disbelief , they should distribute copies of Christopher Moore s books to their students to illustrate the concept No matter how many time I shake my head or utter the words he s warped when I read Moore s books, I inevitably race through them, enjoying every word and chapter as though it were a big bowl of ice cream deliciously satisfying and fun, fun, fun Really, what other author can make you believe that a sex star [...]

      I ve heard many good things about Christopher Moore, but mostly I ve heard that I d love his sense of humor In life, I take two things seriously The health and security of my family Everything else is fair game If you can riff on religion, politics, sex and the overall human condition, in a thought provoking, sarcastic manner, you will find a friend in me For this reason, I would love to just sit down and have a conversation with Moore I m sure we d laugh ourselves stupid.The Characters A pothea [...]

      Christopher Moore is, as always, a genius when it comes to the absurd and warped sense of humor that I enjoy oh so much Who else could give us a plot that includes all of the following a former B movie starlet who still lives the life of her most famous role as Kendra Warrior Babe of the Wasteland, a sea beast with a vendetta against a wayward bluesman, a psychologist who decides to put the entire town on placebo anti depressants instead of the real deal, a pharmacist with a fish fetish yes, tha [...]

      Valerie Riordan, the sole psychotherapist in Pine Cove, California, has switched all her patients antidepressants to placebos a reaction to the apparent suicide of Bess Leander, one of her patients, who, Val thought, might have lived had Val done talk therapy and less drug therapy As a result, business is booming at The Head of the Slug, the local Blues bar, run by Mavis, whose clients swear that underneath her ancient, wrinkled, liver spotted skin there lurks the Terminator Problem those lonel [...]

      The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove is a warm hearted probe into the meaning of inter species fornication Fornication with giant lizards, sea mammals, gas trucks, and a ex soft porn movie actress in Xena costumes with broad swords In other words, just another day in Christopher Moore s brain The author has his brain working over time in this silly little romp Maybe a little too silly even for Moore Yet it remains very funny and entertaining Moore revives some of his Pine Cove residents including [...]

      I just finished reading this, and as I explained to my fiancee last night when I couldn t stop reading it it does not hold up the qualities that are necessary for me to classify a book a good book however it is great escapism The characters are not real The author does nor reveal anything to me in the telling of the story He has awareness that he is writing escapism and I like that He is not your typical escapism writer like James Patterson or John Grisham who turn out one load of crap after ano [...]

      2.5You have to be high to read this Or drunk Or both Yes, both would be best Otherwise, the sheer amount of exaggerations would make you crazy With its title alone, you have to assume you d have to suspend your disbelief completely I don t mind that at all It is supposed to be a silly book after all But you don t get any respite from all the exaggerations It s just goes on an on, one crazy situation or a person after another After a while one gets tired of it.I wonder if I am too serious to appr [...]

      If you like Carl Hiaasen you should give Christopher Moore a try, while Hiaasen writes quirky mysteries set in Florida, Moore writes quirky fantasy urban fantasy set in California There similarities for me are the characters, these guys come up with the oddest set of characters.I liked this book, but prefer the Fool, Love Story and Grim Reaper series view spoiler I felt dumb not realizing sooner that the bestiality loving druggist would picture into the final solution hide spoiler

      I m not sure how this book ended up in my bookshelves, but there it was As you may be able to guess from the title, this is not serious literature The story takes place in a small town on the coast, where a 5,000 year old sea monster has been awakened He has a taste for warm blooded animals, so he proceeds into town to snack on the townfolk The unlikely hero of the story is the pothead town constable Theo Crowe Theo and his friends decide to help the sea monster return to the sea, so he doesn t [...]

      This was one of his best I have read so far I could not stop laughing Very hysterical story line.

      What would happen if all the inhabitants of a small California town were suddenly off their anti depressants Well, the local bar would probably see a boom in business The general libido would also probably go up a notch Some people s behavior might become a bit erratic All this would make life than a little complicated for the small town s adorable and hopelessly high police constable, Theo And just to add to Theo s already messy life, an old bluesman decides to set up shop at the aforementione [...]

      Where to start Where to start This book was my maiden dip into Christopher Moore, who should get a Pulitzer for his titles alone Who can pass up a title like this I have since moved on to read several other of his books Totally improbable, quirky, witty and twisted My kind of humor From the tale of the Bluesman Catfish Jefferson, to poor Steve the Sea Monster, looking for love in all the wrong fuel trucks, to Molly and her narrator, the story just flowed I loved the way Moorse chose to describe [...]

      You like it or you don t and I do Quirky twisted nonsense humor Ideally for those moments you really do not want to question what you re reading but just want to enjoy it Before you start this book, check if you have a sense of humor if not, move on.

      I tried listening to this book as I fell asleep Big mistake I fell out of bed laughing at least three times.

    20. Michael Grove on said:

      Possibly the most low brow novel I ve ever finished, this book will take several points off your IQ But what can I say, it s a guilty pleasure to read about stoners and sex crazed dragons.

      Some amusing bits, but this won t be one of my favorite Moore books It started off well, but I enjoyed it less and less as I read I usually enjoy the first half of his books than the second half I suppose it s because I like his characters than his ridiculous plots.This story returns to Pine Cove, where the inhabitants are going a little nuts, because in a fit of misplaced guilt, the local psychiatrist has taken all of her patients off their antidepressant medications Also a giant sea monster [...]

      The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove followed Christopher Moore s successful debut novel, Practical Demonkeeping I don t know if he was high on his new popularity or high on something else, but this one disappoints, with colorful new characters being the only saving graces.Still in Pine Cove, California, some of the same characters and the new ones again must confront something supernatural, although the giant Sea Beast lizard comes from deep in the ocean and has only one non known animal characte [...]

      This book is very strange It starts out innocent enough, but just spirals out of control It s like the author wrote the first half of the book sober, and the second half, stoned out of his fucking mind Because the second half is just plain bat shit crazy.The story starts out nice and simple A new sheriff comes to town Greetings all around Everything is fine Nothing to see here But then, naked people keep showing up everywhere Fucking in the park Fucking on the sidewalk Fucking on the counter of [...]

      Moore returns to the scene of his first hit the coastal small town of Pine Cove, California, filled with weirdos, hippies, and the occasional nutter This time, the town is in slightly distress than usual mostly because the town psychiatrist has decided to take some twelve hundred patients off their antidepressants and partly because an ancient 50 feet sea monster has decided to stop by for a while.It doesn t improve matters that the sea monster, Steve, has the pre evolutionary ability to cause [...]

      I love his Pine Cove characters the way I love Terry Pratchett s Night s Watch Theo and Molly are quickly working their way into my favorite characters list followed by Skinner the Dog There s something of the unexpected hero in Theo and perhaps an unexpected pragmatist in Molly.The first book I read of Moore s had the same effect that Monty Python s Holy Grail had on me all those years ago A sort of bemused wonder at being dragged into suddenly new and unfamiliar territory I must one day thank [...]
