I just finished listening to "Fool" cleverly written by Christopher Moore and perfectly narrated by Euan Morton. This book is the court fool's view of William Shakespear's King Lear--with the Christopher Moore twists. I don't know much about the play and I enjoyed the story. The author says that it isn't necessary and that he took a lot of liberties. It was brilliant. I laughed. I cringed. I was horrified. I enjoyed it so much I am going to pick up another Christopher Moore book to read.
As with every book of his I have read, this one is very funny. I really enjoyed it.
A fantastically funny book narrated perfectly. Christopher Moore may be one of the funniest and intelligent writers today. Note: lots of f-bombs and English slang for everything naughty! May be offensive to the French! :)
Christopher Moore has written extensively on Canadian history, and is a recipient of the Governor General's Award. He is a co-author of The Story of Canada, and author of The Loyalists.
