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 bats. 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, and wickedly funny novel from a modern master of the outrageous.

    " funny, not as funny as lamb or fool but funny "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Salyards | 2/14/2014

    " Funny - and I learned about cargo cults. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hilary | 2/9/2014

    " Another fun and silly book by Christopher Moore! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Blizzard | 2/7/2014

    " Also quite funny. I will definitely read more Christopher Moore books. Similar to Lamb in many ways, but also very different. A great book for the beach - even though that is not where I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/27/2014

    " Christopher Moore is my new favorite author! Pure brain candy! He tells such fun, bizarre, interesting and entertaining stories! This was not my favorite by him, but well worth the read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry | 1/13/2014

    " This was a funny book, but not one of my first choices by Christopher Moore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcy | 1/4/2014

    " Tucker Case is a washed up pilot who is offered a supposedly lucrative opportunity on a tiny island in Micronesia. Unfortunately, all is not as it seems. This hilarious book, filled with absurd characters and very witty dialog was a joy to listen to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marci | 12/31/2013

    " This book took me a bit to get into, but I really like Tuck and Roberto. I can't wait to reread other books where Tuck appears now. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley Moore | 12/15/2013

    " No match for "A Dirty Job" but it still has some worthwhile laugh-out-loud moments. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cass | 10/11/2013

    " Not as good as Moore's other work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 9/5/2013

    " Great setting in this book, I love the weird mystery , one of the coolest books, but I am a Christopher Moore fan ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryce | 8/7/2013

    " Another very funny book by Christopher Moore. I'm reading it again for the second time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 7/2/2013

    " I had forgotten how very weird Chris Moore is, but he sure can put words on a page. I'm reading along (because I can't put it down) and suddenly about halfway through the book, I found the plot!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Carroll | 8/27/2012

    " Laughed out loud, love Moore's bizarre world, reminiscent of Carl Hiaasen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra Silva | 7/20/2012

    " One of his more believable novels. But also perhaps not as funny as his others either. The bat was classic though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaitron | 7/12/2012

    " Not my favorite but I am still a huge Christopher Moore fan! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Allan Holcomb | 7/1/2012

    " Not Moore's strongest but enjoyable. A bit pervy. Funny. I hope that Roberto Fruitbat makes and appearance in some of Moore's other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jin | 6/20/2012

    " Quick read, a bit vulgar in content.. overall, it was OK. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 5/15/2012

    " This one was only ok, but I do love Moore's style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebking | 2/14/2012

    " It was fun and funny. Like other Christopher Moore books you can never guess what could possibly happen next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 12/23/2011

    " Not my favorite Christopher Moore, but darned amusing :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Horton | 11/13/2011

    " This was great. If you've read "The Stupidest Angel" first, you'll find out in this one all about the pilot Tucker Case and how he came across his fruit bat, Roberto. The overall concept of cargo cults and what happens when sick-minded greedy people take advantage is brilliant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Mcbroom | 7/9/2011

    " Hilarious, and has stuck with me surprisingly well for what seemed like a light, funny book. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 6/17/2011

    " Okay this was way different from any book I've ever read but it had me cracking up from the beginning! A definite palate cleanser. If you want a good laugh and some entertainment, read this one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 6/8/2011

    " So good. Especially hilarious for reader who knows lil bit about isolated island life ;-D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 6/5/2011

    " Thought I'd give Christopher Moore another shot, after not enjoying "Lamb" all that much. SLN in the same vein--not a bad read, sort of entertaining, but trying so hard to be clever that it becomes distracting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mishaabq | 6/1/2011

    " sNot my favorite of the Moore books but still funny. Right now I'm into light and only light. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 5/31/2011

    " My favorite Chris Moore book. Whacky and fun and zany. Full of characters (including a talking fruit bat) that you can't help but enjoy. I read this book for the simple joy of reading. It won't change the world, but it'll the world a bit more laughable while you turn the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sebastian | 5/19/2011

    " kleine und nie langweilige Geschichte. Die Story erzählt nun nicht was völlig Außergewöhnliches aber hat ihren eigenen Charm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T&C | 5/12/2011

    " The very first Christopher Moore book I ever read...

    I was never the same again! "
