Island of the Sequined Love Nun by Christopher Moore

Island of the Sequined Love Nun

Christopher Moore

This funny book could be described as a load of nonsense - but it's very entertaining nonsense about a human organ transplanting service operating under the guise of a missionary station. Expect great dialogue and interesting characters including a talking fruit bat wearing designer sunglasses. However, be warned, it’s very unpolitically correct and you might not be too happy if you are Japanese or a native of Micronesia.

Extract

Tucker Case awoke to find himself hanging from a breadfruit tree by a coconut fiber rope. He was suspended facedown about six feet above the sand in some sort of harness, his hands and feet tied together in front of him. He lifted his head and strained to look around. He could see a white sand beach fringed with coconut palms, a coconut husk fire, a palm frond hut, a path of white coral gravel that led into a jungle. Completing the panorama was the grinning brown face of a ancient native.

The native reached up with a claw like hand and pinched Tucker's cheek.

Tucker screamed.

'Yum' the native said.
