not yet rated|write a review
From master of subversive humor Christopher Moore comes a quirky, irreverent novel of love, myth, metaphysics, outlaw biking, angst, and outrageous redemption.

As a boy, he was Samson Hunts Alone—until a deadly misunderstanding with the law forced him to flee the Crow reservation at age fifteen. Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life. Then one day, destiny offers him the dangerous gift of love—in the exquisite form of Calliope Kincaid—and a curse in the unheralded appearance of an ancient god by the name of Coyote. Coyote, the trickster, has arrived to reawaken the mystical storyteller within Sam...and to seriously screw up his existence in the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coyote is Coyote Coyote is a smug, irritating, cheating, lying piece of immortal crap. And we're all the better for it! He's a hilarious fish-out-of-water in modern day, and his urging to the protagonist to become more whole is good advice for all of us. Recommended for any with an identity crisis or for fans of Coyote stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underrated Gem I'm surprised by the luke-warm reviews that this novel has been getting. I read this book in two days because it was so fantastic and mesmorising. I loved the characters, the story, and the premise. Or maybe I'm just a sucker for Coyote stories. But I absolutely ADORED this book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not his best I'm slowly working my way through Moore's novels. I have to say that although there are a few priceless moments (especially the made up Indian legends), this one is not his best work. However, his sense of humour and his ability of turning the everyday mundane into complete absurdity is what makes him unique and this one is no exception. Still an enjoyable read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My least favourite Moore So this has to be my least favourite Moore book. I found it kind of long and drawn out, and it took me a lot longer than normal to finish it. It had its funny parts, but definitely wasn't was good as his later work. I probably wouldn't read it again and would likely only recommend it if you have read all his other work and are trying to find something somewhat funny to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please write more i really love these stories, especially the connected ones. i cannot get enough of Moore's characters. With Anansi Boys, it's really interesting to compare them because the premise is very similar and then they go off on their very different, very hilarious ways. Wintersmith, I put down for a person unknowingly acquiring the attention of a god, plus the humour. Esther Friesner, ditto. the situations are so real, once you accept the details that gods exist and interact with humans. It's also interesting how humans, (for Wintersmith and Temping Fate, young humans) deal with having the powers of a god, and how they deal with the responsibility of those powers (interesting, when gods never seemed all that responsible to me...).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When bad things happen The characters aren't as good as in some of Moore's books. Still overall worth reading.
