    Badly edited with undeveloped plot.

    First, let me say that I would not personally read this story again in its current form. If it was edited and the plot was more developed I would definitely give it a second chance because the actual idea of the book is excellent.

    This book has a good idea for a story line, but the actual story is not well told. The editing is so terrible that I felt as though I was reading a rough draft rather than a final copy of a story. I actually wondered if this was self-published instead of having an actual publisher. It is also extremely confusing, with the plot twisting in strange directions. Characters are mentioned, but never fully developed. The main character is constantly changing his opinions and lying (adding confusion to the plot), while minor characters are suddenly brought out of nowhere and then disappear within a page or two. The conclusion made me feel as though half the book was missing. Overall, this book needs serious editing and a more developed plot.

    Excellent and enjoyable read.

    Very tongue in cheek "auto-biography" of a story teller/adventurer.

    This is the second book and delivers just as well as the first.

    Wesley Allison's style if enjoyable to read and keeps you turning the pages.

    Funny stuff

    Not quite as funny as the Elven Princess one, but still highly amusing. I love the chapter headings. I would read more, much more, of Eaglethorpe Buxton and his many adventures.

    Stopped after 22 pages

    The use of the phrase "which is to say" drove me up the wall. I can appreciate that some characters seem more real if they have annoying habits or phrases they are inclined to repeat, but the main character was so abnoxious that I wanted to punch him after 5 pages. Glad this thing was free.

    Quirky, funny and annoying all at the same time! The main charac

    Quirky, funny and annoying all at the same time! The main character, Eaglethorpe, is about as random as they come. I believe he suffers from ADHD. A little drawn out in places,but it had me laughing out loud. It does need some editing but I did enjoy reading it.

    Misunderstood, but good.

    Some of the people reviewing this book critique it under te misconception of it being a serious work of literature. It ia dumb for a reason. It is wordy on purpose. It is a fantasy version of the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy. I loved it, which is to say it was great!!!

    I enjoyed this story as much as I did the first Eaglethorpe book. I hope he writes more, his style of writing is different and kind of enjoyable because of this.

    entertaining, if a little off

    Ok story, but that is all it is, and should not be call a book unto it self, only a short story. This should be bundled with other short stories. Then maybe a book will emerge.

    more from this reviewer

    Couldn't even get through the first chapter

    The author used the phrases "which is to say" or "that is not to say" 4 or 5 times in the first few pages. Which is to say, I quit reading this ,um, novel.

    Really short....

    I would liked to have seem more to the book. Perhaps if the author combined all of the books/series into one book it would be a better read.

    continues the same style as the rest

    This is written the same as the others in this series. It is a cross between talking to my wife and teenage daughters.

    Waste of time

    With the exception of the math used to divide the pies, this book was the stupidest book I've read in a long time. I got both 'Eaglethorpe Buxton & the Sorceress' and 'Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Elven Princess' (which I didn't bother to read after this one) were free on my Nook and very glad I didn't waste a penny on either.
