Read from July 10 to August 12, 2010

Not bad. Pretty consistent with the rest of the series. I probably read this book too slowly, which made me think the middle was boring. But it certainly started and ended well. so far all the Xanth books have seemed to drag a bit in the middle, except probably the first two. but then again, i read the first two straight through rather quickly and books 3, 4 and 5 I spent several weeks just reading a page or two a day in the middle of the book before knocking out the last hundred pages within a couple of days. Every Xanth book is about the same length and they tend to follow a similar formula of get the adventure going, seemingly random things happen while the characters journey from here to there through the middle, pull all those random things together into a tight knot at the end. Not a bad formula, but it tends to cause my eye to wander while all the seemingly random things are happening, which is probably why it's best to read the books as quickly as possible so that the middle doesn't seem so boring. All in all I've been satisfied with each book.
