SACRE BLEU

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

An aspiring painter and unabashed romantic joins the greatest artists of the age in chasing his muse across fin de siècle-era France. There are really two ages and two operating modes for hugely popular comedic writer Moore (The Griff, 2011, etc.). There's the deceptively easy humor of his early California novels, which only gets sharper and funnier in his San Francisco-based vampire novels. But ... Read full review

Review: Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Kate Ayers

“I simply set out to write a novel about the color blue; I can't remember why now. When you start with a concept that vague, you have to narrow your scope fairly quickly or it will get out of hand, so very early in my research great bits of history had to go by the wayside so I'd have room to make stuff up.” – Christopher Moore And make stuff up he did in SACRÉ BLEU. First, he started with this ... Read full review

He's back
Fool nearly turned me away from Moore but with "sacre bleu" he is back with a funny and smart novel.

An absurd plot - stupid jokes Absurd plot probably done better by Anne Rice - cardboard characters who happen to be great artists (wonderful anecdotes insights and quotes); stupid jokes that are often real funny; I enjoyed it a lot

Review: Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art
This was an excellent book by Christopher Moore and if you liked his other books including A Dirty Job then you should definitely give this book a read. I didn't
know a thing about art before but this was very easy to understand. You can tell that Chris has quite a bit of interest in art and I really liked that. I know that the characters in this novel have been criticized but I thought that everybody had great distinctive personalities and I would even consider this book to be character driven to a certain extent. It was a good book but I didn't feel the need to keep reading the whole way through as much as his other books although I wasn't turned off by anything.

This book has the complexity of a good glass of Absinthe. Not that I have ever tried the stuff but I did see a documentary on it and I have an extensive knowledge of the Impressionism period that this ... Read full review

I actually listened to this audiobook with my daughter who is an artist. So it was a unique experience as she would pause it at certain points and go "You know what he was talking about right?" And I ... Read full review

There are those who love Christopher Moore for his bizarre, irreverent wit. And there are those who love him for his ability to create portals into absurd realities, and his ability to make those ... Read full review
