The second and final book of "The Eyes of the Overworld",
This review is from: Cugel's Saga (Hardcover)
For maximum enjoyment, I'd suggest reading them in order, even though both can stand alone as far as story goes.
Both are like a fantasy version of a road movie about a clever rogue who's luck is sometimes with him and sometimes against... He's not without capability, but he tends to overstretch his good fortune.
Terse dialogs make both books sparkle, and the twists and turns keep you turning the pages while soaking up vividly drawn impressions of everything imaginable.
Yeah, I'm trying hard to talk generalized and not give away any of the story. I do like the first book (The Eyes of the Overworld) better, but both are great.
You'll find that the first book's title "Eyes of the Overworld", which might at first seem like pompous fantasy nonsense turns out to be part of a great and funny parable :D
