Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling author

Locus Poll Award winner

Aahz, Skeeve's friend and mentor, has taken exception to something his partner has said, and left in a huff. It was just a myth-understanding, but now it's Skeeve's job to apologize for his thoughtless behavior and convince his scaly cohort to rejoin the firm.

Pervect is not a nice place

I have read most of the Myth books years ago. Then I kinda forgot about them (ie life was happening ) and was very happy to see them now on Audible. This is a inbetween book I would say as the main drive is to find Aahz and move on to the meat of this story the show down with our old "friend" Queen Hemlock. Its still an enjoyable light read. Great for cheering you up as all the Myth Books are. Its not Discworld but its as much fun for me.

Pronunciation is abysmal

The story is wonderful, funny, and touching, but the narrator needs a dictionary or the NBC Handbook.

Djin is pronounced the same as gin, not duh-jin for heaven's sake!

Not like the others, but necessary in the series!

This isn't like the other books in the series, but it's very necessary in order to understand some of the back stories and dynamics between Skeeve and Ahz.. Its written in a totally different tone,, and is more of a coming-of-age age type of story for Skeevei than anything else. Still entertaining and still a good read!

Light, and funny!

Robert Aspirin has a touch of introspection in this story and I enjoyed the personal insight. I saw myself and my flaws in the story, as he uses his talent to see people in an honest and realistic way, whether they are green and scaly, or pink and soft.

Great story, unbearable narration.

Would you try another book written by Robert Asprin or narrated by Noah Michael Levine?

I've enjoyed the previous books in the series, the narration is overall very good.

How could the performance have been better?

An otherwise good story made to awful to listen to by the narrator's inability to pronounce "djinn" (one of the characters is a Djinn and the word crops up a lot . Variations on djinn are used in the wordplay).

Hearing the the narrator repeatedly pronounce it as if it were two words ("Dee-Jin") despite the rather obvious clue in the story that it sounds like "gin" (as in "Djinn rummy" or "gin rummy") just made it too jarring to listen to for any longer.

Did Mythnomers and Impervections inspire you to do anything?

This recording inspired me stop it playing and delete it, I'm afraid.

I tried, but I couldn't listen to that mangled pronunciation any longer.

Any additional comments?

By all means read the book - the story is as good as any in this series, but do yourself a favour and avoid this volume of the audiobook unless it gets rerecorded after the otherwise excellent narrator is taught to pronounce key words correctly (why someone didn't correct him during the recording - or when the word cropped up once in one of the previous books in the series - I don't know).
