Pocket is Kind Lear's fool, and he's trying to save Lear's kingdom from his two scheming daughters while hoping that the old man will realize his mistake in banishing Cordelia, the king's loving daughter.

Hmmm, not exactly my favorite Christopher Moore. It's still funny and all, though the schemes are a bit over my head, and Pocket the protagonist is too much like the one in Lamb with more vulgarity.

Journal Entry 4 by HoserLauren at Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Saturday, June 28, 2014
Based loosely on Shakespeare's King Lear, Pocket is Lear's fool, hired for the purpose of keeping youngest daughter Cornelia entertained. Pocket falls in love with her and is sad when she is sent away because she won't profess her love for her father like her two older sisters. The fortune is split between the older sisters and with the help of a ghost, Pocket devises a way to destroy them. With the help of a big oaf Drool and his puppet Jones, Pocket sets in motion the King Lear tale, told from a completely different and at time hilarious angle.

I had originally read The Serpent of Venice which is the follow up to this book. It was nice to go back for this book and learn about Pocket's background and his relationship with Cordelia. Moore has an incredible imagination. Inserting a new character in to an existing story and figuring out how to get that character to mastermind everything takes a bit of work. Even having not ever read King Lear before, I had no trouble following and enjoying this story. It was lots of fun and I'm looking forward to a third book (if there will be one) about Pocket!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

How do I describe this book?? When I first started to read it, I had to ask myself, "What on earth am I reading ?" but once I got in to it,I was fascinated and loved the bawdy tale the author related through history, Shakespeare, geography, unconventional grammar, wit, sarcasm and entertainment. I have never read such writing and hope to read more of Moore in the future.
