This is story of King Lear through the eyes of his fool (court jester) named Pocket. Like his other stories his characters are witty, unique and at times crass. I will warn you that there is colorful language throughout the story. Not the normal language you would hear on cable TV, but new colorful language that only CM could create. There are lots of sexual references as well. If you are not completely opposed to these things you will enjoy this book. If you enjoy witches and potions, knights and wenches, kings that go crazy, dysfunctional families and the occasional shagging then this is the book for you. The narrator does a good job and adds to the story with his appropriate accent. It is a great listen and will have you laughing out loud.

I pitty the fool who does not buy this book. This is dry, sarcastic, witty humor.
After reading the Blood Sucking Vampire series and loving it, I did not know what to expect with this. I found I like it as well if not better then the vampire series. The fool is the only one in the kingdom with any brains. To be a small person and survive in this world of royalty and ruffians, you must have brains. If the fool's life is not threatened then it is a slow day. Almost everyday someone is threatening to hang him. Yet he lives on to shag all the queens, princess, and maids of England. He bad mouths the Kings, Princes, Queens, witches, etc with language I have never heard before in my life.
I was kept laughing through 75% of the book, toward the end it gets a little serious and less funny, but it is worth your credit and I can't wait to listen to my next CM book.
Narrator was excellent
