"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."

A little gorey at times. Quite a bit of foul language and sex. But, if that stuff doesn't bother you, it was pretty funny and entertaining.

There are a few good parts to this story. Unfortunately, it's too uninterestingly long and not as funny as Moore is capable of. 4 of 10 stars

A well-executed version of events from the fool/jester of Shakespeare's King Lear.

Very raunchy with creative insults and a solid voice actor.
