    It´s possible that I don´t get many of the innuendos and connotations because of losses in translation from English to German and a lack of foreknowledge but I definitively think that it doesn´t has to be so coarse Don´t get me wrong I have no problem with sweating I do it silently in my mind on many occasions see But I find i

    Christopher Moore's re telling of Shakespeare's tragedy of King Lear has great comic potential It's just too bad that this novel doesn't come close to its potentialTold from the point of view of Lear's court jester there are some genuinely amusing moments in this book However as I read the book I kept thinking this was like a Saturday Night Live skit that had been stretched beyond its initial humorous value and just kept going and going and

    Moore's retelling of King Lear from the viewpoint of the Fool Full of crass tongue in check innuendo and clever wordplay just like the real ShakespeareI didn't enjoy this one uite as much as The Serpent of Venice That might be because I read Fool first and I was used to the writing by the time I got to SerpentIf you enjoy Shakespeare satire andor crass humor don't miss this one

    It is little secret that I think that Christopher Moore is one of the funniest writers currently putting ink to page Whether he's writing about playing stone the adulteress with Jesus talking fruit bats or a schizophrenic former B movie star who still believes that she's a warrior babe of the outlands Moore almost never fails to leave you panting on the floor with tears in your eyes and lungs aching for air N

from the unstoppable Christopher Moore is a hi Welcome gentle goodreader to a profane irreverent and hilarious serving of shag filled Shakespornean bawdinessWarning Smutty naughtiness below says Captain Obvious Thisismy new favoritest Christopher Moore nudge nudging out the excellent Lamb The Gospel According to Biff Christ s Childhood Pal with ear hugging diamond studded prose like The castle s awash in intrigue subterfuge and villainy they ll be wanting comic relief between the flattery and the murders Intrigue and villainy Drool displayed a gape toothed grin Imagine soldiers dumping hogsheads of spittle through the crenellations atop the castle wall thus is Drool s grin as earnest in expression as it is damp in execution a slurry of good cheer He loves intrigue and villainy as they play to his most special ability Will there be hiding There will most certainly be hiding said I as I shouldered an escaped testicle into his cod And listening Listening of cavernous proportions we shall hang on every word as God on Pope s prayers And fuckery Will there be fuckery Pocket Heinous fuckery most foul lad Heinous fuckery most foul Aye that s the dog s bollocks then said Drool slapping his thigh Did you hear Mary Heinous fuckery afoot Ain t that the dog s bollocks Oh yeah the dog s bloody B it is love Yes the foulest of fuckery is afoot from the first Fuckery most fouland fuckery most fun With plenty of perfectly pronounced fucking French as well PLOT SUMMARYThe wonderfully brilliant idea behind this huge hunk of happy is as followsThe Bard s story of King Lear told from the viewpoint of Lear s Fool given the sobriuet of Pocket depicted here in the storm scene from Act III of the famous tale That mostly could suffice as description but the true genius of what Moore has done is to keep the basic events of the tragedy in tact while completely remodeling the tone of the story into a filthy hysterical fun fest by having the smart razor witted Pocket act as our eyes and ears throughout the narrative All the players are there and the timeline remains mostly in step with the classic but the delivery is anything but traditional as when Pocket heckles Edmund the Bastard son of the Earl of Gloucester upon his arrival Hail Edmund you bloody bastard I called over the wall The yeoman tapped me on the shoulder Beggin your pardon sirrah but I m told that Edmund is sensitive about his bastardy Aye yeoman said I No need for prodding and jibe to divine that prick s tender spot he wears it on his sleeve I jumped on the wall and waved Jones at the bastard who was trying to wrench a bow and uiver from a knight who rode beside him You whoreson scalawag said I You flesh turd dropped stinking from the poxy arsehole of a hare lipped harlot The uality and ferocity of insults dispensed by Pocket is extraordinary and would have Don Rickels suirmy and red with blush Me it had laughing until tears actually began skiing down my cheeks Now despite following the major plot thread of the source material those familiar with King Lear should not expect anything than passing homage to the actual language of the original This story is Moore s homage to British Comedy and is one giant anachronism when it comes to prose The writing contains far of the likes of Monty Python Eddie Izzard PG Wodehouse and Douglas Adams than of Shakespeare And all due and gracious respect to the Bard I am just ducky with that because I was braying my bollocks off from the beginning Pocket is aided in his outlandish chicanery aka the aforementioned fuckery by a fellow fool in training the slow witted giant named Drool who got his name because of his torrential dribbling and the ability to break wind that could darken a room Drool in addition to the enlargements referenced below is also a perfect mimic who can recall whole conversations hours long recite them back to you in the original speakers voices and not comprehend a single word Once this rare talent was discovered Pocket took him in to teach him the manly art of mirth THOUGHTSBeing a big fan of British comedy I was struck by how inclusive Moore was in including such a varied range of styles in the humor represented I knew I was in for a treat from the opening paragraph which read like pure classic Python The stage is a or less mythical thirteenth century Britain with vestiges of British culture reaching back to pre Roman times still loitering about Britain encompasses what is now modern Great Britain including England Wales Ireland and Scotland of which Lear is king Generally if not otherwise explained conditions may be considered damp The comedy is sometimes zany and sometimes piercingly insightful It is part clever word play and part in your face offensiveness It is at times erudite and clever and other times aka mostly bawdy and blue as a sailor s bachelor party To wit You rascal Pocket I ll not be buggered by you I smacked his bottom again dust rose from his trousers No no no not me Not my cup of tea But Drool now he d shag the night if he wasn t afraid of the dark And hung like an ox that one is I suspect you ll extrude stools untapered for a fortnight once Drool s laid the bugger to ya Supper ll dump through you like a cherry pit out a church bell What it almost always is is entertaining and I enjoyed myself thoroughly Coming into this I was a fan of Christopher Moore and I think this is his best work His earlier Lamb The Gospel According to Biff Christ s Childhood Pal still holds a special place for me because I found the balance of wit and respect that Moore showed for his subject matter to be nothing short of magical However I had fun with this one and so it wins by a smile 50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION
