The series isn't what it used to be, but it's been going for over 20 years, so you have to expect that. Asprin's writing style is submerged in this two author novel, so the pacing can be a bit slow at times

This novel relies on puns and jokes around shopping malls, suffers from a bit of a lull in the middle, but works as light fantasy reading for a quiet afternoon. There's nothing new here, but it's a nice visit with character who have been built up over t5he last 15 books.
AN enjoyable cautionary tale of consumerism and credit card debt
Mīta sērijas piecpadsmitā grāmata; šogad esmu atspēries šo sēriju pabeigt. Laika vēl ir diezgan, lai tas notiktu bez piespiešanās, un arī uz jauno grāmatas līdzautori es lieku lielas cerības.

Kādu dienu pie Āza mājas ierodas parādu piedzinēji. Izrādās, ka Skīvs ir iepircies lielveikalā ar viltotu kredītkarti, kura izrādījusies bez seguma. Veikalnieki ir nolēmuši piedzīt simtiem tūkstošu zelta gabalu lielo parādu. Āzam gribot negribot ir jāķeras klāt šīs lietas atrisināšanai. Viņam ir aizdomas, ka...more
One card to rule them all,
One card to charge it!
(Ja šo klausās audiogrāmatā, no tās sasodītās dziesmiņas nevar tikt vaļā!)

Šoreiz Asprins pievērsies kredītkaršu kaitīgajai ietekmei un priecē lasītājus ar Āzu grāmatas galvenā varoņa lomā.
Asprātīgi, kā jau pierasts, un patīkami akšonīgi. Pārsteidza mītu sērijai neparasts atrisinājums, bez ierastās izvairīšanās no problēmām un visa izrādīšanos par pārpratumu.
Love this series though the early books are my favorite. No Skeeve in this one exactly. Mostly Aahz. No more chapter quotes either. Just the theft of various plot lines from other places and spoofed together in the normal mything way.
I think I'd have been happier without the Lord of the rings references, but the rest of the concept was amusing.

The quotes need to comre back. They added something.

The story coming from Aahz's point of view was a bit jarring, but it was interesting to see how he views situations.
I am not sure what number this book is in the series, but it is one of the later ones. The plot is clever and the writing is very funny. However, the reader must be familiar with the other myth books to appreciate some of the situations.

Not a bad addition to the Myth series, but I felt it definitely lacked something from the first 6 or so books. Worth the read, but not at the same caliber as the first books.
I have read several books by this author. This particular book was not that exciting, but for fantasy it is easy to follow and pretty humorous.

Another great Myth book. Skeeve is not in this one, directly, but it's still great.
Nothing especially profound or special, but entertaining nevertheless.
Loved this entire series. a nice mix of comedy and science fantasy.
Started kind of slow, but it turned out as hilarious as expected. =)
Recommended by Joey. Funny but too much violence for my taste.
Benjamin Antzak
I absolutely love this series!
