Description

“Hilarious, always inventive, this is a book for all, especially uptight English teachers, bardolaters, and ministerial students.”
—Dallas Morning News

Fool—the bawdy and outrageous New York Times bestseller from the unstoppable Christopher Moore—is a hilarious new take on William Shakespeare’s King Lear…as seen through the eyes of the foolish liege’s clownish jester, Pocket. A rousing tale of “gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity,” Fool joins Moore’s own Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck! as modern masterworks of satiric wit and sublimely twisted genius, prompting Carl Hiassen to declare Christopher Moore “a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.”

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 20, 2008 – Here's the Cliff Notes you wished you'd had for King Lear—the mad royal, his devious daughters, rhyming ghosts and a castle full of hot intrigue—in a cheeky and ribald romp that both channels and chides the Bard and “all Fate's bastards.” It's 1288, and the king's fool, Pocket, and his dimwit apprentice, Drool, set out to clean up the mess Lear has made of his kingdom, his family and his fortune—only to discover the truth about their own heritage. There's more murder, mayhem, mistaken identities and scene changes than you can remember, but bestselling Moore (You Suck) turns things on their head with an edgy 21st-century perspective that makes the story line as sharp, surly and slick as a game of Grand Theft Auto. Moore confesses he borrows from at least a dozen of the Bard's plays for this buffet of tragedy, comedy and medieval porn action. It's a manic, masterly mix—winning, wild and something today's groundlings will applaud.

Customer Reviews

Where are the footnotes!?

In the original book there are countless footnotes scattered throughout the text. These are very important to the story, not to mention they are hilarious. The book is amazing but if I had known there were no footnotes I would never have purchased it. I paid for the whole book and only received part of it. The book is five stars but whoever put it up without the footnotes gets no stars

Great book!

First! Okay now that that's out of the way...this book was wonderful! A bit different than his usual stuff but hilarious and a fun read as always. Once you get past the language it's tough to put down. 5 stars :)

Best Book Ever!

If you like raunchy humor and aren't easily offended, do yourself a favor and indulge! It helps to know some Shakespeare, he uses the language a bit; very "British Humor"; absolutely funny as hell!
