Very good book. Much more going on that meets the eye at first. And the author really pulls it all together.
So far I have never found a Steven Brust book I have not liked. This is a fun read, nothing too heavy but with a twist.
I enjoyed this books about musicians in a traveling restaurant. I liked the character interactions, especially between Billy and Libby.
A friend recommended this author to me. I tried to get into this book but I just couldn't. I didn't care about the characters.
This has got to be the most surprising book from Stephen Brust that I have read and I have read them all. I first read this book nearly twenty years ago. It is an easy read and entertaining to no end. The story behind my reading of the book is almost as entertaining as the book itself. I was nineteen and in the Youth Corp. (an outdoor work program for youths in need of direction). I have always been a slow reader so starting a new book is challenging at best but when a fellow worker in the camp asked if they could read it I saw no harm. She loved it so much that someone else wished to borrow it. By the third week of our work program everyone in the camp had read the book and were sharing their favorite moments of the story over the campfire. I had to retire to the tent early as to not spoil the book so I started reading it myself. As shown throughout the camp, it was not only enteratining but incredibly addictive.
By that point in my life I had read Pheonix and Taltos but after that experience I was truly hooked on Brust.
