I heard Asprin read sections from this at Dragon*Con last year, so had been looking for it. It was reasonably entertaining, but somehow the picaresque form of this novel just didn't hold together for me. It didn't seem to have a clear arc, just several separate episodes. It felt a little like it was describing episodes from Season One of a TV series--sudden chapter transitions skipping forward several months are jarring when just about every chapter begins that way. This one just didn't feel like a novel, somehow.

The characters are fun, although I agree with the other goodreads reviewer that the main character is very like the one in the Myth books. I may still pick up the second book in the series when it comes out.
