It is probably pretty clear that I am not a great lover of classic literature. When I pick up a book, I just want to lose myself and have some fun. Coyote Blue was a good way to get out of my own head for a little while. It is highly entertaining and extremely funny. I couldn't stop laughing! Christopher Moore has a way of making the ridiculous seem perfectly plausible, and he creates all of these wonderful characters. This story is about a Native American (Sam) who had to leave home, and make his own way, at the tender age of fifteen. Hiding his identity and heritage, he becomes a successful businessman, living comfortably (but not necessarily happily) for many years. Until he sees the girl. And the old Crow Indian god shows up. The order and tidiness that Sam has come to rely upon is thrown to the wind as he is forced to reevaluate his way of life and what he holds dear. The book is about 304 pages, so it's not long enough to get boring or irritating. Although I thought there were a couple of instances where it got maybe a little TOO silly, it is definitely worth reading - there are a lot of laugh-out-loud moments.
