    This book reminded me of Meet the Parents, a movie that I stopped watching after the main character s name was revealed to be Gaylord Focker his first name has gay in it and his last name sounds like fucker That is hilarious So when Moore presented the character Zoophilia Gold, I knew that the book could safely be added to my trade in pile.Granted, my simple lady mind is ill equipped to recognize and appreciate humor In the 30 or so pages before Zoophilia s entrance, nothing struck me a This book reminded me of Meet the Parents, a movie that I stopped watching after the main character s name was revealed to be Gaylord Focker his first name has gay in it and his last name sounds like fucker That is hilarious So when Moore presented the character Zoophilia Gold, I knew that the book could safely be added to my trade in pile.Granted, my simple lady mind is ill equipped to recognize and appreciate humor In the 30 or so pages before Zoophilia s entrance, nothing struck me as funny, though clearly it was meant to Hey, the jerk main character Tuck flies a pink jet Pink And he s a dude How wacky And then he crashes it while initiating Meadow, a prostitute, into the mile high club, gettin...

    Does Christopher Moore know how to write a bad novel Does he even know how to write an average novel While Island of The Sequined Love Nun is not the equal of Lamb and A Dirty Job, it is still a total delight with Moore s cast of insane characters and tightly woven if outlandish plots And of course It is frigging hilarious Cargo Cults, talking bats, stripper bimbo masquerading as goddess, pink Lear jets, transvestites All the sort of things that ...

    Island of the Sequined Love Nun is absolutely hilarious Christopher Moore has a style akin to Tom Robbins, of whom I am a big fan Sardonic and clever Excellently ridiculous story line, completely engaging If done right, could be made into an excellent movie I highly recommend this read.
