The Jester by James Patterson

Between reading Madame Bovary and listening to A Reliable Wife, I needed something that did not take place in the early 1900's and that required a little less brain power. Though I probably did not realize any intellectual growth when I read this book, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was an easy read, exciting, and yes- brainless entertainment. It had all the elements I needed- a good guy, a bad guy, a beautiful maiden in distress, and some bawdy jokes throughout. I'm glad I picked this up.
