Give Moore top marks for creativity as he weaves a story around a muse who inspires the Impressionsists, with a young baker-painter and bon vivant Henri Toulouse-Lautrec as the main characters in a farcical romp. My favorite lines are an exchange between these two as they enter the Catacombs in Paris: T-L "it follows the streets as if on the surface" Lucien "Yes, but with fewer cafes, more corpses and it's dark, of course" T-L "Oh well then, we'll just pretend we're visiting London" :-) ( )

Blue is my favourite colour, especially the ultramarine blue that is the basis for the magic elements in this novel, so it's no wonder that I absolutely adored this book. I've used the colour-basis technique for some of my own writing, and I find it quite interesting that a proper author did the same thing, and did it so well. As much as basing all writing on these types of techniques is a bad thing, sometimes a single starting point like a colour can be the start of a really intriguing novel, such as this.

Christopher Moore proved with Lamb that he had a flare for writing semi-historical books with a humourous flare, and Sacre Bleu follows this same style by exploring the lives of the Impressionist painters in France through the colour blue. Blue is a dominant colour in the art of the Impressionists, and has always been an intriguing colour in the general art world because of it's physical make-up and it's history, so it seems that Moore picked a perfect topic to write on. Even though the majority of this work is fictional, Moore did do quite a bit of research into the characters of the painters who became his protagonists so the personalities really shone through. While we can never really be sure how a real live person from history would act, that's part of the fun of this type of project. Getting into a person's head is something that authors have to learn to do wiith their own characters, and using the same technique for historical characters who already have some reputable sources of personality traits must be like doing an extreme version of Mad Libs.

Kind of hard to describe because it is a Chris Moore book. I gave it 4 stars, I like his wit and I liked the subject matter of the book (oil painting). It was not a roll on the floor funny book, but certainly had some good humor in it.

The characters are mixture of real people and made up people and there is a lot of truth behind the story.

Compare it to Lamb, but I liked that one better. ( )

I always feel like a traveler, going somewhere, toward some destination. If I sense that this destination doesn't in fact exist, that seems to me quite reasonable and very likely true. -Vincent van Gogh, July 22, 1988

Well, I have risked my life for my work, and it has cost me half my reason-- -Vincent van Gogh, July 23, 1890
