In high school, I wrote about the fools in all of Shakespeare's plays. I remember thinking that Shakespeare should have expanded the fools' roles, for they were better than the various leading characters for wit, wisdom, and all-around entertainment value.

Clearly, a lot of the so-called wise people were in fact fools. King Lear is a prime example. What kind of an idiot would give away all of his wealth and power to his two lying daughters based on their willingness to tell him what he wanted to hear?

Shakespeare clearly understood that fools were valuable in kingly courts for providing wise advice as "foolishness" while others had to go along with the king's idiocy. Christopher Moore understands that point even more profoundly and places Lear's fool, Pocket, at the center of the Lear tragedy . . . recast as a dark comedy.

Usually, this is all great fun . . . especially when Moore chooses to add aspects to the Lear story that expand it in new directions such as by borrowing the witches from Macbeth. But Moore has a predilection for making the book as prurient and disgusting as possible. I assume that he's a great fan of Gargantua and Pantagruel. Needless to say, some of the gutter's smell attaches to the book and will repulse you at times. I'm sure this will increase the book's appeal to those who like "broad" humor.

Overall, I was quite satisfied with the experience. This fool is no fool, even if he is overly attached to his apprentice fool, the "natural" Drool. You may find yourself drooling with laughter in places.

All die Ränkespiele um Liebe, Macht, Eifersucht... alle die Moritaten, die William Shakespeare's Figuren in ihren Stücken vollführten... wer kennt sie nicht?
Sind schon Shakespeare's Werke eine große Wonne zu lesen, so darf ich Christopher Moore und seine Neuinterpretation von "King Lear" aus der Sicht des Hofnarren Pocket wärmstens als höchst amüsante und frivole Addition zu den unschlagbaren Werken Willy's empfehlen!!! In diesem Roman wird auf höchst unterhaltsame Weise mit viel Wortspiel und leichter Obszönität die Geschichte um König Lear und seine drei Töchter erzählt. Der Roman liest sich flott mit permanentem Schmunzeln und macht sehr große Lust, sich auch die Originalvorlage vorzunehmen - die gewiß um einiges dunkler und blutiger ausfällt als dieser Roman!

Witzig und um die Ecke gedacht wie immer. Nur drei Sterne, weil ich lieber Geschichten lese, die in der Gegenwart spielen. Aber trotzdem unbedingt lesenswert, wenn man den Humor von Christopher Moore mag.

Genial für den Urlaub! Sehr lustig, intelligent und pikant. Tolle Mischung. Auch wenn das Englische manchmal schwierig ist, nicht aufgeben! Es lohnt sich!
