Review: The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove
The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

About the Book
I’ll have to admit that I enjoy Christopher Moore’s writing and ever since listening to Lamb a couple of years ago, I’ve been trying to find another book by him that was as funny. Unfortunately, with the exception of Fluke, none of his others have really lived up to it. Maybe it is the fact that this one and others were earlier in his writing career, I’m not sure. Granted it was funny, but not the laugh out loud kind of funny that I was expecting and I really had no problems putting it down and listening to something else. But it was good for a light read and i have no doubt I’ll continue to listen to his work in the future

About the Narration
This is the first time I’ve run into the name Oliver Wyman as a narrator and while he did a good job, I don’t think he was a stand-out narrator to me. All the voices were done well and I could easily distinguish between them, but I couldn’t get completely involved in the narration, which to me in the sign of someone I want to seek out in the future. While I won’t disregard his narration in the future, should I run into it, I don’t know if I will seek him out.
