Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d’Art (Book Review)

Send to Kindle


Before I read this book I would’ve told you that you couldn’t go wrong with anything written by Christopher Moore; but after trying to read this book I have come to the conclusion that one of three things are true about this book:

  1. Christopher was being physically tortured while he wrote this book.
  2. Someone else wrote this book and somehow got Christopher to pass it off as his own.
  3. Christopher was intentionally trying to write the worst book of his career so no matter what else he writes in his life he can say, “At least it isn’t as bad as Sacre Bleu.”

I was first introduced to Christopher Moore when I was given a well-read copy of “Fluke”. I enjoyed it quite a bit and then I moved on to “Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal”. I couldn’t get enough after that book and I quickly downloaded everything he had out at the time and I have continued to pre-order all of his books, including this horrible book.

This book is so slow and nothing grabs you at all. Christopher is usually very funny but I could barely find a trace of humor anywhere in this novel. I honestly couldn’t finish it; I’ve had it on my Kindle since it came out and I’ve tried to read it from time to time but I probably won’t ever finish unless there is a natural catastrophe and I can’t find anything else to read. I’m sorry Christopher, I just can’t like this book no matter how many times I’ve read your other novels. I’ll still get your new stuff and hope that this story is just a tragic tangent that won’t be  repeated.
