(PDF KINDLE) [Shakespeare for Suirrels] ë Christopher Moore
I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad kTher two really hit home for me I love how Moore can create complete ridiculousness and craft a captivating story around it I even did my homework in preparation for Shakespeare for Suirrels by reading for the first time A Midsummer Night s DreamI have to admit that neither one really hit home for me A Midsummer Night s Dream was a bit of a bore I never really got the laughs and chuckles out of it like the other Shakespearean comedies that I ve read I don tnow if it was a lack of connection with
base material or just where I was in my life or perhaps Shakespeare for Suirrels was not Christopher Moore at his best but I really didn t form a connection with this storyDon t get me wrong Shakespeare for Suirrels is filled with all of Moore s trademark humor with outrageous situations and over the top characters I Pip Sueak Saves the Day Medici Books for Children kept interrupting my wife s reading to recount some brilliantly crafted jokes however I just wasn t pulled into the story I just didn t care what happened to whom I m always disappointed when this happens I want my stories to take me away to another time and place away from my own real life Shakespeare for Suirrels is a fine story Moore did his thing I ve always considered him to be the Weird Al Yankovic of the literary world He takes a story theme concept that the audience is familiar with and he creates something new and original that is completely recognizable and filled with laughs andnee slapping humor It s just that not every song can be Eat It I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Edelweiss I received this as an ARC from NetGalley Let me Start By Saying That I by saying that I Christopher Moore s novels but he set the bar really high for me with Lamb and nothing has been that good since With that said this humorous retelling of Midsummer Night s Dream was absurd in all the right Dragonsbane kind of ways The ridiculousness that Pocket involves himself in never ceases to amaze and entertain me and I will continue to read about him as long as Mooreeeps writing about him If you need a good laugh at some wonderfully lewd humor I would suggest this Moore has outdone himself With the exception of Lamb this may be my favorite book of his yet After the brutal misstep of Noir I thought he d lost his edge Fear not Pocket and Drool are back for their third Shakespearean jaunt and this time it s Midsummer Night s Dream my favorite play There were several parts in this book where I laughed until my side hurt or my eyes teared up The fairies are absolutely brilliant the freuently uoted line is the goblins which I won t ruin but they say it constantly cracked me up and the play at the end is perfection Moore manages to create a different concluding play by the craftsmen while eeping their inherent ch.

I m pretty sure I M Actually A Character In actually a character in of Christopher Moore s books and I don t now it I laugh out loud wherever I may be reading his books dirtyinnuendos sarcasm and snark are my signature traits that and the occasional made up word and cuss words I adore this humor and when mixed with one of my loves Shakespeare it s a true f ing delight I love Pocket I love the shit he pulls and snark and sarcasm he gives I love his bawdiness and spunk he makes the plays of Shakespeare damn hilarious Note I received an
Advanced Reader Copy Of This Book Courtesy Of NetGalley In reader copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley in for a reviewThis is actually my first go at a Christopher Moore book and due to my initial unfamiliarity I ended diving in headfirst without realizing that Moore has an array of different ongoing series and recurring characters like Pocket the Fool But my entrance into this particular series uite out of order ended up proving to be no detriment The bigger challenge was getting used to the surprisingly raunch heavy style of humor that permeates the book from beginning to
At times it felt a little too thickly layered onto everything to say the very least But eventually I was able to accept the book s setting for what it was an absurd magic laced place seemingly populated almost entirely by jerks of all types and species where everyone is so blatantly flawed in their own way and where most everything is varying degrees of ridiculous that not even the main characters can take their world very seriously And once I was able to embrace this not only was I able to enjoy the cheeky ludicrousness that permeated everything but I was uickly able to become unexpectedly and deeply engaged in the A Midsummer Night s Dream themed mystery at the heart of the plot with all its twists and turns that sent Pocket and a bizarre cast of supporting characters dashing about a fantastical medieval Athens enduring no small amount of misadventures All in all it was very absurd and very irreverent fun If Moore s other works are anything like this then I definitely plan on giving his other works a try the next time I find myself in the mood for a light coarsely comical and very readable romp It would be just fitting that the only man who would deign to talk to me is a hat shagging monkey She leaned in closely You sir have the look of a hat shaggerOh fkastockings He s back It s Pocket Pocket is back with a new mysterious tale with his merry little band of aholes Here we have uite an odd mysterious tale of murder hat shagging and a gaggle of fools with a Midsummer Night s Dream thrown in for good measure Moore takes us on a uproariously and murderous journey that you ll never forget It s lewd crude and downright filthy and it s exactly what. Shakespeare meets Dashiell Hammett in this wildly entertaining murder mystery from New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore an uproarious hardboiled take on the Bard’s most performed play A Midsummer Night’s Dream featuring Pocket the hero of Fool and The Serpent of Venice along with his sidekick Drool and pet monkey JeffSet adrift by his pirate crew Pocket of Dog Snogging last seen in The Serpent of Venice washes up on the sun bleached shores of Greece where he hopes to dazzle the Duke with his comedic brilliance and become his trusted foolBut the island is in turmoil Egeus the Duke’s minister is furious that his daughter Hermia is determined to marry.
