My main issue with this genre of fantasy comedy is that often than not all the promised wit shines at you from the very first line I know wow look who s here to bitch about too much of a good thing But this can t just be me can it I m going to try a bad analogy here stay with me It feels like staring at your cell screen at max brightness lying in the bed at night with the lights switched off It takes a while to adjust The comedy here kicks in well before the plot and you have no breather between all that humor I prefer medium humor and fantasyplot I prefer to be somewhat invested in the story before the humor kicks in especially in fantasy I ve laughed far watching Pirates of the Caribbean than Guardians of the Galaxy I m not sure everybody will get the difference but that s the best example I can give Another review of the book mentions that it displays a very Brookly 99 humor and I agree It does Now this is a very popular sitcom so I m certain this book will appeal to the vast majority sadly I ve not uite managed to develop a strong enough taste for thisHaving said that about 30% into the book I really started enjoying the ride I laughed enough to wake up my roommate in the middle of the night reading the swamp bits And Whiska and Borg are a MOOD I can so imagine some of these scenes play out on the big screen and it would be legit funny It s a mad group but you might have to give them some time to grow on you if you belong to my corner of this reading world But if you re in it for the plot you re gonna find it thinPS Also I m uite certain we all know a Farmer Benton And we say we put up with him for the same reasons the townfolks do he s old and inappropriate and nobody else will But deep down we know it s because he s a riotThank you Sean and The Parliament House Press for this ARC
