I have always enjoyed fantasy novels and I have a fond place in my heart for campy pun filled fantasy and Robert Asprin definitely writes books that fit the bill. His books remain good although they do not quite stand up to the test of time. ( )

Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.leafmarks.tumblr.com by express permission of this reviewer.  Title: M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link  Series: Myth Adventures  Author: Robert Asprin  Rating: 3 of 5 Stars  Genre: Fantasy  Pages: 136     Synopsis: A series of short stories about each of the characters that have collected around Skeeve and who make up Myth Inc. And an overall story about Skeeve learning he isn't "all that" but just a guy with a great set of friends.   My Thoughts: This was slightly humorous and the lack of "funny" was helped out by the fact that Asprin doesn't seem to do his best work with short stories.   Just an average read.

This good book for a certain type of mood... its a quick read, nothing too deep, goes in unexpected directions while following a similar path of previous books in the series.

I like that this book features short vignettes from the viewpoints of the other characters. The stories are amusing, although the twisted stereotype(the gangsters, or the articulate ogre, or the very intelligent bombshell secretary) is not exactly subtle.

Its a fun read, nothing spectacular, but good for a quick, Sunday afternoon read. ( )

A childhood favorite re-visited.

Is the story as good as I remember? – Yes

What ages would I recommend it too? – Twelve and up. While ten to twelve might enjoy it, there are many ideas they will not understand. Though, they will certainly get many of the jokes.

Length? – Most of a day’s read.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Fantasy, alternate dimensions.

Written approximately? – 1986.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No.

Short storyline: Skeeve seems to have lost his emotions and attachment to his job. Sure, he okays everything, and goes over everything with an eagle eye, he just isn’t in on each project he sends his team into. One tale involves one of his mob bodyguards working in a Deveel factory creating cheap magic toys. While there, they manage to find where the Deveel isn’t really losing money (actually his brother-in-law is cooking the books and gets a promotion), while the body guard manages to start a labor union so the employees could leave work with a few dollars in their pockets each week. Meanwhile, two other assistants (including a vampire from “Mything Persons”) are creating a Casino Hotel for a customer. Towards the end is an interesting tale from Gleep, a dragon’s eye view of the team, and how some people tend to have trouble spotting what is right in front of their noses.

Notes for the reader: In this story, this author takes the emotions of his characters seriously. The characters don’t just race through the story full of action without emotion. The author realized the importance of the reader connecting to the characters by giving us the emotions, and even the reasons behind those sometimes odd emotions for the situation. While the first few times, it is a shock to the system to actually read of a character having an emotion, soon, it just becomes an enhancement to the story. In fact, when the lack of emotions by the main character becomes apparent in a later story, even that is noted by all the characters, until it is resolved. ( )

The crew at M.Y.T.H. Inc. may be finding their feet financial success-wise, but in this multi-narrated account of a few of their adventures it's apparent they have a long way to go communication-wise. From investigation to interior decoration, the gang's on the case, but not everyone feels they're contributing, and that's a big problem... ( )
