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.… (mere)

Island of the Sequined Love Nun af Christopher Moore

  1. 10
    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? af Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (mere)

This book moved to my number one favorite spot for 2024.

It is a book about the fortunes and misfortunes of Tucker Case “Tuck”, his mainland boss/ex boss, his mentor friend who was the reason he is a pilot, his newly found friends when he gets to the islands, a talking bat, a WWII bomber ghost, an island of natives, and more as he gets sucked into the world of the Sky Princess and Sorcerer and their nefarious plans.

It is a racy, fun, fast read that had me laughing out loud for real. I was hooked from the first page and even my husband commented on my laughter while I was reading this book.

I can’t describe it further without spoilers, but I was fully immersed into the island culture as the vivid writing made me feel like I was there running after Tuck with my feet peeling my out on sand trying to find out what’s next in the zany ride of a book! It had many twists and turns and a ton of humorous shocks to the senses. I so totally loved this book!

I am so bummed to move on to another book. I didn’t want to leave the island, I fell in love with so many of the characters and miss them already! ( )

This is an absolutely bonkers book and I liked it! Truly bonkers. A cannibal, a ghostly messiah, a talking fruitbat, a lovable transvestite, a reporter with flying pig underwear, supervillains, R-rated sex, ninjas (sort of), a knockoff but still pink Mary Kay with a thick Texas accent, etc etc. The hapless hero turned out to be a hero and the book came to a very satisfying end. Narrator second to none. ( )

Pilot Tucker Case is a drunken screw-up who gets a sweet offer to pilot a Lear jet on deliveries from a remote Micronesian atoll. The offer is, of course, way too good to be true.

This was the first Christopher Moore book I ever read. Some clumsy ethnic and gender stereotypes, but knowing that Moore evolves with later books lets me give him a pass. ( )

This was honestly such a lousy and somewhat racist read. You can convey contempt without resorting to calling people known racist terms. That being said this was written in the early to mid 90's. The standards of writing were far below where we are now.

The pacing and plot were unusual and smooth for what they were. To be clear there is no sequined love nun in this book. There is however a megalomaniacal, borderline rapist,fully racist false idol. ( )

I really wanted to like this book—especially because I'm a pilot and the main character flies a Learjet for a South Pacific island doctor. Alas, I just wanted it to end. I loved Noir. And Practical Demonkeeping was okay. But this book was a boring mess. The characters weren't terribly engaging (shockingly for Christopher Moore) and the story was just kind of dumb. It makes me wonder about picking up Razzmatazz. Maybe I should quit while I'm ahead. ( )
