I enjoyed this book because it was very clever I enjoyed the puns and the humour in the language I thought that what Apropos did wasn t nice or kind in anyway, but there was character growth and it definitely kept things interesting I ve never read a book about an anti hero before well, not quite like this one so it was a wonderful change of pace There is some sex in it, but it s not smutty There is some violence in it, but it s not gory It s fairly middle of the road as far as objectionable content goes, but the story is pretty great.
Terry Pratchett and Diana Wynne Jones are known for how they brilliantly send up well worn fantasy cliches Peter David, in this fantasy about a limping base born boy who is in a rage at an unfair world, also sends up a bunch of fantasy tropes, including some funny twists on common terms that get reinvented The Harpies Bizarre being one of the most, er, compelling but the humor is uncomfortably juxtaposed against some really ugly stuff Heroes do horrible things, including the main character At one point the hero and the heroine are obviously eating human meat, though they don t know it, but the reader does, and is shuddering There is a long and rather unnecessary rant in the middle we get the point already but even so I kept reading, and reading, and reading, until the end Colorful prose, non stop action
