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.
It is well written and very well performed. The actors enable the listener to see them change form, and imagine how they look in both of their forms. Piers Anthony, is a master story teller. As such, it is very much like all of the books he has written, they are very well done and a reliable bet to buy on speculation, if you have never read any of his writings.
It is well constructed and readily adapted to what our imaginations can grasp and flow along with the narrative.
if that was all of the male characters then none were any less well done than any one of the others.
If I were on a long drive this would be wonderful to listen all at once.
Worth what I paid to get the book.
I enjoyed it a lot. It's showing its age, for sure, but it was nice to go back to an "old school" fantasy/scifi experience again!
Things will be continued in the sequels, but as a stand alone book it was a little disappointing. Anthony set up a fascinating world, but the plot is pretty flat and it ends in a rush. I have to read the sequel to get any satisfaction, but I probably won't.
