      This review is dedicated to Iceland team of UEFA Euro 2016 Guys, you showed everybody you do not have to be a high paid pro to play a good game When old friends get together, everything else fades to insignificance War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death.Every chapter of all the books of the series starts with a funny epigraph I could not resist using one of them above Anyhow, Skeeve was bored out of his skull doing his job of a court magician this means doing nothing It did not help any that it was [...]

      I liked the first two books and Myth Directions is also a short, fun and easy read Once the story is quite simple and it does well as a standalone or as a part of the series I m really glad to find fantasy is mixed with humor again The interaction is quick and smart and the actions take a quick pace Aahz and Skeeve have become my favorite duo and I enjoy reading about them and meeting their new allies I enjoyed reading about their new adventures as they find themselves in another interesting an [...]

      Let the Games Begin20 June 2016 Well, it is 11 30 it was 11 00 when I first started writing this review but my computer crashed which mean I lost everything so much for autosave and while I should be in bed fast asleep since I do have to go to work tomorrow I would rather be sitting here writing my review because, well, I would rather write a review than think about going to work, especially since my brain juices get a lot exercise doing this than what I do for eight hours in a day Mind you, I [...]

      This third installment in Robert Asprin s Myth series was another fast paced and humorous read All the fun stuff was back The witty banter between the characters, adventures on weird demon worlds, hilarious situations, and a dose of magic The time around our apprentice magician, Skeeve, finds himself touring a few demon worlds in the company of Tanda The aim is to find a birthday present for Aahz After a bit of searching Tanda decides a unique trophy would be ideal The catch It s not for sale an [...]

      This installment was as fun as the previous one It was great to follow Tanda and Skeeve in their search for a birthday gift for Aahz through the dimensions I loved seeing of the dimensions and the creatures that inhabited them Then when they finally settled on a gift I thoroughly enjoyed all the mishaps and adventures that led to the hilarious resolution It was great to see some old acauantances again I m also happy we ve got some new ones I m looking forward to meeting Masha and Griffin again [...]

    6. Ryk Stanton on said:

      This is book three of the series, and you already know that I like this series It s hard to explain why you would like this series if you haven t already read it, but I ll try first off, it s just funny The first person narrator is a young thief who wants to be a wizard, but his original mentor was killed and since then he has been palling around with a green scaled dimension traveler No, that s just not enough The characters are distinct and fun, the plots are a bit simplistic but fun it s just [...]

    7. BridgetT on said:

      Just too silly smiley face Lots and lots of fun I m still really enjoying the series Now on to HIT OR MYTH.

    8. Michael on said:

      This is the third book in the Myth Adventures series, but was the second one I read as a teenager It continues the process of educating Skeeve, the main character, about magic and the multiverse he inhabits It gives readers the chance to glimpse at least a bit of the many dimensions besides Klah, the narrator s backwards home world, and Deva, home to the greatest bazaar in the known universe, although both of these locations appear as well The original proposal for this novel was that it would b [...]

    9. Neil on said:

      This is the 3rd book in the Myth Adventures series, and just as enjoyable as the previous outings This time we follow Skeeve, a magician s apprentice, and Tanda, a lapsed assassin, as they travel through various different dimensions trying to find a suitable birthday present for Aahz, a Demon from Perv It sounds a simple task, without a likelihood of things going wrong That was until Tanda spotted the ideal gift, which unfortunately isn t for sale.With Tanda captured, it falls on Skeeve and his [...]

    10. Henrik Havighorst on said:

      Skeeve and Aahz are up to their old tricks again and as usual, they are spiralling into trouble faster than you could say Gleep Even though the structure of the storyline is very similar to the previous installment Conflict, Team Assembly, Final Showdown with two teams , I did enjoy the banter and especially the interplay between Aahz and Skeeve I am not keen on Tananda as a character I think Asprin is not really very good when it comes to creating female characters and they feel like female fa [...]

    11. Matthew McPike on said:

      Troy turned me on to this series of books This was another great read from Asprin It has a little bit of Fantasy, Comedy and Adventure I have a copy somewhere for loan but can t seem to locate it right now.

    12. Timothy Boyd on said:

      With the exception of Terry Pratchett no can write fantasy comedy like Aspin These are great reads and you will laugh the entire way through Highly recommended

    13. Shaun on said:

      I thought this was a step down in the series Whereas the previous book pushed forward the arc of the characters, this book felt like a complete one off The plot of this book is also a lot weaker than before The characters motivations are hand wavey Why does Aahz adhere to the Quigley promise Why does Badaxe join up It is just strange and inconsistent with their previous character development The whole book just feels very low stakes who really cares about this random trophy It feels like author [...]

    14. Charity Fairman on said:

      While I still very much enjoy the cast of characters, this particular story was a bit circular for me Though the creativity abounds in making up the game and the dimensions I do still enjoy the jokes as well.

    15. Brian O'Leary on said:

      A very good series, that I would highly recommend, especially if you like your fantasy books to not take themselves too seriously.

    16. Crystal Sheldon on said:

      Not as catching as the first two, but fun and imaginative love the catchphrases that are often not understood

    17. Julie on said:

      This third book of the series wasn t quite as clever as the first two I enjoyed but missed the clever humor and word play of the previous books.

    18. Alex on said:

      On the run up to the Superbowl, it seemed appropriate to dive into the football caper in this series It s still tight and funny.

    19. Stephanie on said:

      This was another funny story This story is about gambling and birthday present for Oz Love Gleep.

    20. Karen on said:

      Cute and very punny Skeeve and Tanda go off to get Aahz a birthday gift Trouble in many dimensions ensues culminating in a game to end all games.

    21. Jamie on said:

      One of my most childhood well, teenagerhood possessions is a pair of graphic novels based on Robert Asprin s Myth series, illustrated by Phil Foglio I also read most of the books themselves and enjoyed them nearly as much When I recently decided to re read the first three books Another Fine Myth, Myth Conceptions, and Myth Directions I was surprised to find out how well they held up They re still really fun Now while fun isn t the word I d use to describe most books in the fantasy genre these da [...]

      Myth Directions is The One About the Football Game And the trophy I put this first because at some point in the future, I m going to forget which plot goes with which book, and this will be an easy way to jog my memory.This is also the one where we meet Maasha and Chumley, the heavyset magician and Tanda s brother, respectively As usual, the book starts out with an innocuous trip as Tanda takes Skeeve across several dimensions in search of a birthday present for Aahz Of course, things go south q [...]

      A childhood favorite re visited.Is the story as good as I remember YesWhat 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 Reasonable for an afternoon.Characters Memorable, several characters.Setting Fantasy, alternate dimensions.Written approximately 1982.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind Ready to read .Any issues the author or a recent publish [...]

      The third Myth Adventures book The beautiful, flirty demon Tanda recruits Skeeve to steal the Trophy from the sports obsessed planet Jahk as a birthday present for Aahz Naturally, things go wrong, and in order to get away with it, they have to recruit a team from the Bazaar, again, and play in the Big Game.It s the usual madcap silliness filled with puns the bird populated dimension Avis is number two in Skeeve s mind interlaced with what is intended to be a situation fraught with peril, heavy o [...]

    25. Dekks on said:

      After reading and enjoying the first two Myth books, it seemed only logical to continue on with the series, but I hit my first road bump with this book.There isn t anything specifically i wrong i with the book on its own, and if I came into it blind having not read the previous two books I am sure I would of enjoyed it a lot , but as the third book in the series it felt rather stale to me.The plot could really be interchangeable with the first two in the series, Skeeve goes off on an adventure t [...]

    26. John Kirk on said:

      Another good story, with some very funny bits I particularly liked the part where Aahz meets Griffin view spoiler Your lazy old teacher would like to be able to ask our questions without chasing him all around the landscape for the answers hide spoiler Unfortunately, there are problems which could have been solved by better proof reading, and these knocked me out of the story every time I had to stop and re read a section to work out what was going on view spoiler For instance, when Skeeve and T [...]

    27. Tom on said:

      Myth Directions is the third book in the Myth Series series written by Robert Asprin In it Skeeve and his friend Tanda attempt to steal a trophy from a game played between two cities based on Tahoe and Las Vegas Tanda ends up imprisoned and Skeeve returns to Aahz enlisting the Pervect to help rescue their friend and gain the trophy The third book in the series starts to fall into relatively formulaic concepts and the reliance on puns increases to some degree As is often the case the repeating of [...]

      The Trophy is the ugliest object Skeeve has ever seen As Court Magician he has seen a thing or three Luscious green Tanda wants the Trophy for demon Aahz s birthday present But she floats asleep, hostage Inhabitants are weakly, look easy to beat But players bred stronger over generations Ta hoe vs Veygus vs Skeeve s team Who will win the Game and the Trophy Veygus s magician Massha and the stone gargoyle Gus like the looks of one another Skeeve has promised Ta hoe s magician Quigley not to inter [...]
