‘The Serpent of Venice’ by Christopher Moore
June 20, 2014
As a sequel to the “Fool”, “The Serpent of Venice” revives the heroic Pocket of Dog Snogging, his sidekick, Drool, and Jeff, his pet monkey.
The novel takes place in Venice long ago.
Pocket is invited to join three distinguished Venetians for dinner, but the hosts are not particularly fond of him.
In fact, they have devised a desperate scheme to get rid of Pocket by luring him to a dark dungeon for a night of drinking and a visit from one of the host’s daughters, the beautiful Portia.
However, the wine is drugged and Portia nowhere near the city, but Pocket won’t be fooled.
