I've read several of his books, and they are laugh out loud funny.
The research was evident & I appreciated learning a bit about Medieval England, however, I found the story line and characters a little hard to keep track of.

It was very funny, and helped me to understand King Leer better than before.Published 2 days ago by Emily

Once again, Moore proves his comedic chops. His wit and use of Shakespeare are in full force and this tale will leave you giggling on the floor. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Delta Stet

Although this book was good; it is the Moore book I have enjoyed least. Most of his other books have a better wit to sex/fart jokes ratio. I don't believe I will read the sequel.Published 1 month ago by melissa
