Когда жизнь становится похожа на котел с чудесным зельем, куда мастерица-судьба кидает все новые и новые приправы: волшебные талисманы и прекрасные стихи, красивых девушек и могущественных колдунов, беззаботный смех и беспричинную печаль, наверное, следует полагать, что она удалась. И поспешить сказать спасибо, даже если не знаешь кому. Особенно если не знаешь.

This book is mind blowing. It is a novel that took some effort for me to read because of the detail that Frei gave to his work. Max Frei’s world is thoroughly described. A maximum amount of detail is given to everything: characters, descriptions, language, and settings.

All this detail means that many readers will have an easier, more enjoyable experience if they start with the first book in the series. There is a lot of background that needs to be explained and because of the language barrier,

I've said it before and I'll say it again; I really wish those interpreters could work faster!! (Three down, and six to go!)
Max is back in two humorous, engaging, and insightful tales, along with his beloved crew, to save The World once again from a nefarious ex- Grand Magician and Ordinary Magical Things :) Fans of Frei may agree that it was not as in depth as The Stranger, or even The Stranger's Woes, but it's a great addition to the series nonetheless.
No spoilers! But I will say this; I fel
Having read the previous two books, The Stranger and The Stranger's Woes, it was impossible not to read this third one. It's funny, it's entertaining, it's thought-provoking. And when it ended I was disappointed there wasn't a fourth book available to read yet.

Laced story. Too much talk about food.
Still no real overarching plot to the series, but amusing enough
Although I'm always thrown by the somewhat idiosyncratically flat feel of the translation, every Frei book captures me within a very few pages; this is no exception. Max's world and story is growing steadily more layered and complex, and his relationships with every aspect of his context (animate or otherwise) are fun and organic - genuinely evolutionary storytelling. More please.
This is the most engaging fantasy series I have read in a long time. I'm charmed by Max and Echo - can't wait for Book 4!
