Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Voya Reviews
Forget plot, forget characterization. Sit back and enjoy the zaniest mix of punning and wacky names since Asprin's last Phule book. Meet Sushi, the Rev. who worships Elvis, the King-Okidata, Do-Wop, rebel leader Le Duc Taep, a seven-foot high warthog-like creature called Tusk-anini, and the villain, General Blitzkrieg. Treasure lines, such as "You're offering me a face worse than debt," when the Rev. tells Do-Wop he will have to undergo plastic surgery to look like Elvis if he wants the Rev. to pay his debts. Willard Phule, a.k.a. Captain Jester or Captain Scaramouche, is the commander of Omega Company, the Space Legion's dumping ground for incompetents and malcontents. His unorthodox methods work very well as he has molded his unit into a crack fighting team that handles assignments as diverse as running a gambling resort on one world and peacekeeping on another. Who else would succeed in restoring peace by bankrolling the rebels' attempts to build the greatest roller coaster in the galaxy, setting off fierce competition between the rebels and the government to build the biggest and the best? Readers will enjoy seeing how Phule makes fools of the Internal Revenue Service, General Blitzkrieg, and other assorted incompetents, and have a good laugh at the same time. Purchase for high school and public libraries where there is an appreciation for the Phule series and outrageous punning.

    Coauthorship takes the series to Heck, in a handbasket.

    I really enjoyed the Phule books by Asprin. However, the shift in tone of this book with the coauthorship was too much to bear. For example, the galaxy's most eligible bachelor, Captain Jester, who had kept an aggressive bachlorette at arm's length in _Paradise_ and _Company_, now spends half a page admiring an actress' legs. There have been very few books that I have stopped reading in disgust. This was one of them.

    What happend?

    I was so dissapointed to the way this book went. The amazing characters... seemed so juvinelle. The plot? what plot! The ending was cliched and predictable. Maybe I read to much, but I saw it all coming and Robert Asprin can do better. Maybe its the coauthor. I usually cant put books down and even if they're half good I'll read them in one sitting. this book took me a month to read. It bored me and I wish I hadnt read it. Fans of Asprin, ignore this book. thanks.

    Look what they've done to my Phule's, Ma!

    As friends and family can attest, my personal library amounts to more than 1,000 volumes. I can count the number of books I have been unable to finish reading on one hand without using my thumb. This book came close to making that list. The tongue-in-cheek, razor edge repartee that has to this point characterized Aspirin's writings is sorely missing. The tongue is bitten off at the root and a soup ladle has a sharper edge. By the second third of the book, characterization seems to be blithely slipping away and by the final third, all of the characters sound and act indentically. If Aspirin read the final manuscript before publication, he should be charged with the grossest form of authorial child abuse and neglect. I am so severely disappointed in this book that, if it were possible in my obessively bibliophlic nature to exclude it from the full shelf of Aspirin's other works that I possess and have enjoyed repeatedly, I would.

    Asprin is no Phule

    A very enjoyable book. The antics of Phule's Legionnaires continue to entertain me. Watch out for the puns.
