Yay! I have my book! I just need to finish up the book I'm on and I can dive into the foolishness.

Excitement.

Melissa I just finished Fool and I've got to say, Moore has outdone himself. I was completely blown away by the way he has written this book. I found myself wanting to read the clever phrases out loud so someone could appreciate them with me, but then I would have found myself reading the entire book out loud! I loved it. If possible, I'm an even bigger fan. Bravo, Chris!


message 14: by Dan (new)

Dan (akagunslinger) I finished Fool Tuesday evening while my girlfriend was napping on the couch. I didn't wake her up to read choice bits to her even though I really wanted to.

My favorite line was probably "Sounds like a moose trying to shit a family of hedgehogs."


message 15: by Melissa (new)

Melissa So it wasn't just me who wanted to read it aloud so someone else could appreciate the brilliance?

message 17: by Lori (new)

Lori (tnbbc) I picked up a copy of this last night in NYC. AND got it signed (along with A Dirty Job and Stupidest Angel) by Christopher Moore at his book reading.

It was a great time. He is a pretty funny guy, just saying!


message 18: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Kennedy (sysguy) | 5 comments Fished the Audiobook last night and was amazed. The narrator does a fantastic job with the material. Caught myself laughing out load several times. Author Guy did a wonderful job with this. There is a little audio snippet of Moore himself at the end explaining the book too which was very entertaining. Still hasn't knocked Lamb off of the top of my Moore books but a very close second! I really enjoyed this and rank it as one of the best Audiobooks I have listened to in a long time.


message 19: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2 comments I read it, a couple weeks ago and it was amazing, so funny. I really think this book needs to be made into a movie.

Hey Leslie, this just reminded me!

Hey ya'll, did you know Disney purchased the rights to make Practical Demonkeeping into a movie before the book was even published! But, obviously, the movie hasn't been made yet. I wonder if it ever will.

If they make a movie out of any of Moore's novels, they better be damn amazing. Haha!

Michelle (nathanlarry) | 2 comments Disney and any book by Christopher Moore should never be put together in a sentence. It's just wrong.

i completely agree, one of the best things about Moore's books is the sheer rawness of them


Brittany (finally graduated and can once again read for fun) | 5 comments Agreed, I think Disney would just take the premise of the novel but miss out completely on what makes CM and his books so special.


message 24: by Sara (new)

Sara (smdpowell) | 3 comments I'm a huge Disney fan AND a huge Moore fan, and I totally agree! I have heard all (or at least most) of the rights to his books have been bought for movie purposes, though that doesn't necessarily mean they will be made into ones - thankfully.

There are some books that should definitely just stay books. Particularly with Moore's books, as a movie you would loose his unique descriptive nature.
