Read in October, 2010

I'm really on a fence giving stars here: I first read it as a teenager, as a standalone novel, and for a long time it was one of my favorites. I re-read it recently as part of the Dying Earth series and liked it less then the first book. Incidentally, I have read several other questing hero books around the same time which made me a bit wary of the genre. But Cugel is far from being a hero and his adventures are strange enough to set him apart from the less tongue in cheek versions of this plot kind.
