Island of the Sequined Love Nun
1 journaler for this copy...
Take a wonderfully crazed excursion into the demented heart of a tropical paradise--a world of cargo cults, cannibals, mad scientists, ninjas, and talking fruit bars. Our bumbling hero is Tucker Case, a hopeless geek trapped in a cool guy's body, who makes a living as a pilot for the Mary Jean Cosmetics Corporation. But when he demolishes his boss's pink plane during a drunken airborne liaison, Tuck must run for his life from Mary Jean's goons. Now there's only one employment opportunity left for him: piloting shady secret missions for an unscrupulous medical missionary and a sexy blond High Priestess on the remotest of Micronesian hells. Here is a brazen, ingenious, irreverent, wickedly funny novel from a modern master of the outrageous.
A funny story. I liked learning more about Tucker Case and the flying fruit bat, Roberto, both of whom appear in one of Moore's later books, The Stupidest Angel. I wouldn't say this was quite up there with Lust Lizard, Practical Demonkeeping, and Bloodsucking Fiends which were my 3 favorite of his books, but it was funny as usual nonethess, and still a very enjoyable read.
