Summary:

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.

    I really enjoyed this book. Christopher Moore is well known for his outspoken views on society's flaws and injustices. In this book, the good guys won all around, but in a normal ending for normal people.

    Completely improbably, but so funny. Endearing characters, unlikely heroes and an exciting ending. Hilariously narrated by Oliver Wyman.

    Christopher Moore is magical. I love his characters, his fantasy, and his stories. Only one of his books has disappointed me, and I truly believe it was the narrator's fault.
