(Book) The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore


I always used to say that anyone that didn’t think Christopher Moore wasn’t funny was crazy. Amazingly enough, I’ve met some seemingly sane people that think he’s not funny. They must be crazy. Moore is hilarious. I want crawl into his brain and find out where he comes up with these tall tales. He is one sick and twisted individual and well, I like that.

This book was another hit. Funny, way over the top and laugh out loud. It opens with a larger sea beast trying to get it on with a tanker truck (which subsequently explodes – no, I’m not kidding) and moves on from there with a fish-fetish pharmacist, an ex warrior babe that lives in a trailer park and so on and so forth.

Moore’s ability to write these interesting characters along with the outlandish tales make his books a must read on my list. Make sure you read this one. Yes, it’s a bit over-the-top, but, it’s Christopher Moore. Duh.

From ChrisMoore.com:

The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally — well, to be accurate, artificially — business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, those lonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal sea beast named Steve with, shall we say, a thing for explosive oil tanker trucks. Suddenly, morose Pine Cove turns libidinous and is hit by a mysterious crime wave, and a beleaguered constable has to fight off his own gonzo appetites to find out whats wrong and what, if anything, to do about it.
