com Barnes & Noble IndieBound. From Christopher Moore, author of Fluke, comes a quirky, irreverent novel of love, myth, metaphysics, outlaw biking, angst, and outrageous redemption. As a boy growing up in Montana, he was Samson Hunts Alone - until a deadly misunderstanding with the law forced him to flee the Crow reservation at age fifteen. Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life.

Anyone else who has sampled the author's work knows Mr. Moore's tales have lots of hilarious wordplay, oodles of outrageous scenarios and no clue as to where the story is going. His stuff is like the Coen Brothers' comic minds after one-too-many electric-shock treatments.

COYOTE BLUE by CHRISTOPHER MOORE (1994) This book is dedicated to the Crow people.

From Christopher Moore, author of Fluke, comes a quirky, irreverent novel of love, myth, metaphysics, outlaw biking, angst, and outrageous redemption.

As a boy growing up in Montana, he was Samson Hunts Alone -- until a deadly misunderstanding with the law forced him to flee the Crow reservation at age fifteen. Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life. Then one day, shortly after his thirty-fifth birthday, destiny offers him the dangerous gift of love -- in the exquisite form of Calliope Kincaid -- and a curse in the unheralded appearance of an ancient Indian god by the name of Coyote. Coyote, the trickster, has arrived to transform tranquillity into chaos, to reawaken the mystical storyteller within Sam ... and to seriously screw up his existence in the process.

This brief review is being written for Christopher-Moore-book virgins. Anyone else who has sampled the author's work knows Mr. Moore's tales have lots of hilarious wordplay, oodles of outrageous scenarios and no clue as to where the story is going. His stuff is like the Coen Brothers' comic minds after one-too-many electric-shock treatments. Without giving away any of the storyline, let's just say that it takes some serious balls to write a farce which involves Native American spiritual attitudes and, somehow, the author avoids coming across as a jerk. The book should never ever to be taken too seriously. All the characters fall into their respective stereotypes with a healthy dose of the absurd added to their personalities. There's the morally-confused protagonist, Sam Hunter; his ditsy gorgeous blonde lust-interest; the alcoholic Crow mentor Pokey; Coyote the spirit guide/trickster; a group of criminal bikers; a doofus surfer bum; and so on.

I've enjoyed some of Mr. Moore's other works more than "Coyote Blue." "The Stupidest Angel" was my first trip into the author's world and the novelty as well as all-out weirdness of the Christmas story still stands out as my personal favorite. I really have no clue if you can even cull a moral or, hell, even a point from "Coyote Blue." It's just a funny, silly adventure that proves Mr. Moore should be kept away from sharp utensils.

I really enjoyed reading this; unlike Bloodsucking Fiends, this had me laughing out loud and awkwardly around people. I thought the story was great: who doesn't enjoy the antics of a trickster god? I thought the development was excellent--the author is well acquainted with Native American culture so it came off as realistic and natural. The characters had a good depth to them even though there wasn't much room in this tiny book for much description. I even enjoyed the message--it was written in with such subtlety that it didn't come across as preachy or demeaning. Give this book a go, it's not going to disappoint.

Intelligent, irreverent and a whole lot of fun! This is my first book written by Christopher Moore but I highly doubt it will be my last. I lover the blending of history, Native American mythology and practice with love, violence and plain human stupidity (including wants and crazy urges). There's a lot I want to say but I do't want to fill my review with spoilers so instead I will include a few quotes from the book that I thought were fantastic:

"Love: the sickest of Irony's sick jokes. The place where logic and order go to die."

"If you're going to learn, you need to forget what you know."

"Anger is the spirits telling you that you are alive."

"Who did she think she was? You can't just go around blurting out the truth like a prophet with Tourette's Syndrome."

"Why understand when you can believe?"

This was a delightful carnival of a book, surface flash and color to put a smile on your face, coating a solid bedrock of grittiness. The reason I give it less than five stars is a) for me, it went on a bit long; b) the classic "woman character there only for the purpose of moving along the male hero's character arc"; and c) at the end of the day, it was just a little too quirky, like the author was getting caught up in his own cleverness. All that aside, this makes a terrific afternoon-on-a-sunny-day sort of read.

I have now read four books by Christopher Moore (with more on my list), and so far this is the most well-rounded. It is at turns hilarious, thought-provoking, sad, and romantic. While not as laugh-out-loud funny as LUST LIZARD OF MELANCHOLY COVE, it is a more satisfying read.

It tells the story of native American Sam Hunts Alone, who, as a teenager of the Crow tribe commits a crime (accidentally) that causes him to flee the nation and the only world he has ever known. Years later, he is reinvented as Sam Hunter, a hugely successful insurance salesman who feels a great emptiness in his life. He has pushed his native American roots totally into the background and is really just going through the motions of living...not feeling an identity of his own. Suddenly, into his life comes the trickster, Coyote, who proceeds to totally unravel Sam's life in the most shameless (and hilarious) manner possible. But in the same day, Sam meets Calliope, a sort of hippie woman (although about 15 years too late to really be a hippie) with a young baby. He falls head-over-heels with her.

One crazy adventure after another leads Sam, Calliope and Coyote (with an ever changing cast of characters tagging along) across country, ultimately back to the home of the Crow tribe.

Moore takes an interesting view of Native American culture. He has obviously done his homework, and gets many interesting details of their religion, their culture and their mythology right...with an obvious respect showing. But at the same time, he steeps these beliefs in irony and humor. In Moore's world, everything is sacred, but it's all good to make fun of too. And he makes lots of fun. Whether he's poking at Indian life or folk-tales, Southern California life, Las Vegas, love or death, Moore is always sharp, on-target but never mean-spirited. It is this lack of meanness that allows us to feel a connection to these characters...to actually care what happens to them.

While Moore's book is very funny, it doesn't let its readers off the hook emotionally. Not everything is sweetness and light. Not everything turns out as we might like. It's also pretty good at exploring the consequences of one man trying to push an entire culture he's been steeped in away. The book says a lot about the plight of the Native American in our modern society. It's not heavy-handed, but the observations are clear and pointed nonetheless.

I enjoyed myself immensely reading this book. I laughed out-loud several times, chuckled many others and smiled through most of it. If you don't mind the idea of a slightly off-kilter (OK, more than slightly) you should enjoy this book. It would be a good introduction to Christopher Moore. I highly recommend it!

This guy is fantastic!!!! AND SOOOOO FUNNY !!!!!!!!

His books are all incredibly entertaining and this one is no exception. This book has some of the funniest parts I have ever read in a book. I really hope they make this into a movie!!! The plot is great, the characters well defined, and the pacing is perfect. I won't spoil the book here, but let's just say the book keep me in the "can't put it down" mode until the very end. This book is so good that I have given it away to a number of people as gifts.
