    Just a tiny review for this one as I quit reading at the 31% mark of the story I just lost interest and had been avoiding picking up the book again for so long that I eventually decided just to admit to myself that I was never going to return and finish it This was supposed to be light and fun adventure sci fi In fairness it did live up to some of that billing The world seemed and interesting one and there was plenty of humour The problem was it was all absurdist humour and for me that is t Just a tiny review for this one as I quit reading at the 31% mark of the story I just lost interest and had been avoiding picking up the book again for so long that I eventually decided just to admit to myself that I was never going to return and finish it This was supposed to be light and fun adventure sci fi In fairness it did live up to some of that billing The world seemed and interesting one and there was plenty of humour The problem was it was all absurdist humour and for me that is the worst sort of humour It is just to stupid for me to find it amusing When a book is too ridiculous I find I can never get invested in the actual plot or characters.All in all I think this one was just not for me due to the style and nature of the humour That said, authors like Pratchett and Gaiman are also n...

    Small actions can have consequences which spread out, like ripples in a pool What would you say if I told you that for each time we make a choice, we create another universe where another version of ourselves, in another dimension of time and space, is making a different decision I received a copy of this book in return for my honest review Thanks, M.T When The Pan of Hamgee accidently sets fire to a crime bosses apartment, he realizes that he is worthalive than dead He has no familSmall actions can have consequences which spread out, like ripples in a pool What would you say if I told you that for each time we make a ch...

    And just like that, the Pan of Hamgee shot straight to the top of my favourite antiheroes list I love his quirky personality, and the disconnect between his brain and his mouth is priceless.It took me a while to get into the story, but once it started making sense I had a hard time putting it down The secondary characters are quite memorable I wasn t fond of Big Merv at first, but he is an acquired taste The humour is a zany as other reviewers have mentioned, and I could definitely feel The And just like that, the Pan of Hamgee shot straight to the top of my favourite antiheroes list I love his quirky personality, and the disconnect between his brain and his mouth is priceless.It took me a while to get into the story, but once it started making sense I had a hard time putting it down The secondary characters are quite memorable I wa...

    Few are chosen is an endearing fantasy in another world It grabs you from the very first scene, a comedic one reminiscent of the slapstick Three Stooges brand of humor with The Pan being the only Stooge, of course The Pan of Hamgee is accident prone which made him easy for me to relate too as I m a bit of a klutz myself but loveable He finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place several times throughout the book after all, even his existence is illegal Since he legally canno Few are chosen is an endearing fantasy in another world It grabs you from the very first scene, a comedic one reminiscent of the slapstick Three Stooges brand of humor with The Pan being the only Stooge, of course The Pan of Hamgee is accident prone which made him easy for me to relate too as I m a bit of a klutz myself but loveable He finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place several times throughout the book after all, even his existence is illegal Since he legally cannot work, he resorts to thievery and being the getaway driver for Big Merv the crime lord When he accidentally thwarts Big Merv s plans, hilarity ensues The Pan soon finds himself in possession of a magical golden thimble that belongs to the evil leader of K Barth, which complicates his life even further I don t want to give away too much about the book, but the quirky characters make it such a fun read that it was...

    I found it curious that this book should be classified as fantasy, because really it s not There s no magic for one thing, despite the blurb everything is explained scientifically as quantum Sure it s got creatures of colour to be politically correct, with wiggly antennae, but so what It s sci fi straight down the middle Well, comic sci fi really, much like The HitchHiker s Guide to the Ga...

    I think I have man crush on the character of Big Merv This is a very entertaining book and puts the author amongst the fine company of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett of SF Fantasy comedy authors.
