Young Republican, Yuppie Princess has an irresistible premise: four yuppies from the 1980s are transported (via computer programme) to a fantasy world ruled over by a daft but dangerous prince and an evil sorcerer. This clash of cultures (not to mention genres), promises to be great fun, and author Nicole Chardenet mostly delivers.

The fantasy world of the novel is well realized, with a clear geography and interesting creatures. Some of the beings that might be familiar from other fantasy novels (ie: fairies and witches) are given interesting twists, while descriptions of the lives of more original characters (ie: the Bearslayers) really bring the reader into the world of the novel. I especially liked some of the details of life in the royal palace; characters like the Chatelaine and the Royal Chirurgeon made the fictional world really come to life. (The Priest who turned out to be even more uncharitably rigid in upholding the social order than his brother, the prince, was also a fascinating character.)

The plot is developed quite well in classical fantasy style. The story starts out seeming quite simple (get the disc with the compute programme on it and close the portal between dimensions), but soon complications ensue (fairies took it to build a nest; the sorcerer seems to have plans other than serving the prince, etc.). As the story opens out, it gives Chardenet the opportunity to explore her ever-expanding world.

Then, of course, there is the clash of worlds. At one point, the sorcerer gets his hands on the computer disk that contains the programme that opened the portal between worlds, but he has no idea what to do with it. I loved that. There are also cultural references that cause confusion between characters from different realities which are always fun.

Young Republican, Yuppie Princess is a fantasy novel which takes place in the 1980s and has time travel, mythical creatures, action and a spoiled, feminist and narcissistic Republican. Although I do not normally read fantasy novels, this one sucked me in immediately, so much so I read it instead of working. It has a creative story about time travel, friendship and letting go of your ego and stepping out of your comfort zone to help yourself and your friends. The protagonist, Joyce Bacyrus, learns the value of her true power when her pampered bubble is busted and she finally realizes she needs to fight for what is right because not everything in life can be handed to her on a silver plate. Young Republican, Yuppie Princess is a delightful and addictive novel - it can easily be made into a movie. Ms. Chardenet wrote such an engaging and entertaining novel that I didn't want to let go of these characters or story. Hopefully we will be graced by more novels from this ingenious writer.

If I had to write a pitch for this novel I would say that it's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Shrek". It would certainly make for an adventure-filled movie with a cast of smartass college kids, each armed with their own unique skills and knowledge, and yet with a lot to learn about life, the universe and everything. And no, the answer is not 42, but if you like a well-told tale filled with portals into other worlds, fantasy mixed with 1980s panache, and a sprinkle of politics, then this is for you.

The author possesses a unique sense of humour that is refreshing and very witty, and her style endears the heroes of the story to the reader and gives each of them a quirky personality. The characters do speak to the reader and they are multi-dimensional. In short, they feel real, even though this is a humorous fantasy.

Great read! So when's the movie coming out?

I'm not one for humerous fantasy, but I was inspired to read this book. This story takes place in the early
1980's where 4 university students suddenly find themselves transported to a high fantasy world through
a shower stall. The four are friends of very different world perceptions and through their adventures in trying
to save their fellow student, Stephanie, from marrying Prince Chip, they all realize their potentials.
The story is told in the first person by Joyce, a Wall Street Tiger wanna-be, and it is her conservative
blinders that cause much of the strife throughout the story.

Fun and adventurous, this book keeps the reader going. Sometimes you love Joyce and sometimes you just
want to slap her.
