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. 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 keeping their inherent characteristics that made them such uniue characters That s the best part the bones of MSND are all here It s still the same basic story just bastardized in a way only Moore can do And with suirrels So many sodding suirrels

Review Shakespeare for Suirrels

Shakespeare for Suirrels

Demetrius instead of Lysander the man he has chosen for her The Duke decrees that if by the time of the wedding Hermia still refuses to marry Lysander she shall be executed or consigned to a nunnery Pocket being Pocket cannot help but point out that this decree is complete bollocks and that the Duke is an egregious weasel for having even suggested it Irritated by the fool’s impudence the Duke orders his death With the Duke’s guards in pursuit Pocket makes a daring escapeHe soon stumbles into the wooded realm of the fairy king Oberon who as luck would have it IS short a fool His jester Robin Goodfellow the mischievous sprite better known as Puck was found dead Murd.

Ered Oberon makes Pocket an offer he can’t refuse he will make Pocket his fool and have his death sentence lifted if Pocket finds out who killed Robin Goodfellow But as anyone who is even vaguely aware of the Bard’s most performed play ever will know nearly every character has a motive for wanting the mischievous sprite deadWith too many suspects and too little time Pocket must work his own kind of magic to find the truth save his neck and ensure that all ends wellA rollicking tale of love magic madness and murder Shakespeare for Suirrels is a Midsummer Night’s noir a wicked and brilliantly funny good time conjured by the singular imagination of Christopher Moore. Note I received an advanced reader copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley in exchange 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 end At times it definitely 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
