I absolutely loved this series as a teen and I remember eagerly awaiting the books as they were published. Listening to them now, more than 30 years later, I can't believe I ever even liked them, much less loved them. The writing is so simplistic and so utterly misogynistic that I deeply regret purchasing them.
On the plus side, these books were a gateway drug to much better fantasy, but they really are terrible.
The entire first section of this book could have been tossed. i couldn't even get past 1:30 without giving up in disgust.
tell a story and stop selling it with sex.
I read a lot of Piers Anthony when I was a 9-10 YO child and teenager. I read the whole Blue Adept series long ago and nostalgia inspired this listen. This is a fantasy for hormonally charged pre-teen to young adolescent boys. Many of Piers Anthony's works are just that in my opinion.
Stile finds himself with access to a fantasy world from his world of technology. Written by Piers Anthony, whose books are all very entertaining. I world highly recommend this book.
I remembered reading this book in Jr High and not being able to put it down. The series is one of the best I've Revisiting it a decade or 3 later, it is still a fantastic story.
The reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is the authors fascination with playing to the sexual overdrive of the male adolescent mind. Tone it down a little Piers!
It's not enough to ruin the brilliant story but it is enough to cost a star.
The reader's performance was excellent.
