A first edition copy of my favorite Christopher Moore book. Seller said it was in very good condition but it was truly excellent. Supposedly used and doesn't look like it has ever been open.

This book is fabulous. As familiar as I am with King Lear upon which this story is loosely based it is wonderfully decadent. It wouldn't be as funny if you didn't know the play. This was the first book I read by Chris Moore and as a result I have read 4 others. Great writer.

A new approach in story telling by Mr. Moore. A wonderful cast of characters with no bounds for foul language. A wonderful book for Moore's followers as well as any newcomers to his charm.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Manning-Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 16 2009
Format: Hardcover
Christopher Moore's latest book is a spoof on Shakespeare's King Lear, as well as Shakespeare's writing itself, a few elements from other plays are imported into the story as well, Macbeth's witches, for example. This is quite different from Moore's other books, he's written in a British style, using British slang and some of Shakespeare's original words, using footnotes for definitions of words possibly unknown to Americans.

Another difference from his other books is that while Moore, who always has a certain humour that you either find hilarious or offensive, (and for some reason Moore hits my funny bone and I've never found his humour offensive) at first, I found this book really goes overboard with the language and s*xual imagery and it was quite a bit of a shock but I soon settled down into it and it didn't bother me after a couple of chapters. If you've read Shakespeare you will know that he often used bawdy imagery and often his characters ranted at name-calling. It is quite interesting to see that imagery and name-calling in a modern format. I could even possibly imagine that were Shakespeare a 21st century writer, this is how he may have written.

I'm quite glad I chose to read a modern English version of the original play, King Lear, before reading Fool as I don't think I would have enjoyed this book as much if I didn't already know who the characters were and understand the original plot. Moore keeps all the key plot points of Shakespeare's work but he does not become stuck to the original plot. He soon sways from the original creating his own unique story with extra characters, very different results and ending. King Lear is only a minor character in this book, while his Fool (a minor character in the play) is the narrator and main character of the book.
