Title: M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link

Series: Myth Adventures #7

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.

Synopsis

Guido and Nunzio must somehow stop Possiltum’s army from invading everybody. So they join the army to destroy it from within. And hijinks ensue.

 

My Thoughts

The whole book is written from Guido’s point of view, along with his language. So instead of Skeeve blundering through the narration, we get Guido skillfully informing us of the events.

It was a refreshing change at first, but then started getting a little old after nothing was happening. You can only take so much ‘mob talk’ with loquacious asides for so long.  Thankfully, there was a bar fight between the soldiers, the town police, the bar patrons and the military police. I was crying I was laughing so hard. But ymmv.

Overall, I found this a refreshing change from Skeeve’s fake it and make it approach to life, and the bickering between him and Ahzz, I didn’t miss that either. A good addition to the Myth books.

Apparently, I skipped the book before this one, M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link, and you know what? It didn’t even seem to matter.

That is one thing I do enjoy about these Myth books. They are a series, but a very loose series where each book can ‘almost’ stand alone. It makes for a fun, enjoyable, no pressure kind of read.

So Skeeve grows up.

Sometimes you just need a dumb, simple, funny and amusing book to read.
This falls in that category extremely well.

Skeeve takes on a poker champion, a character assassin and is all set to start Myth Inc.

Pretty good for one book 🙂
