This book is good, because it challenges a lot of the Xanthians pre-conceived notions. There are situations throughout the book where the characters have to deal with prejudices. Whether those are prejudices directed toward them from outside sources or things they believe about themselves.
As a warning, there is an issue of a demon trying to violate a young woman and how she deals with that issue, but nothing explicitly happens.
The book is an utter triumph and is a must read for fantasy lovers and those who appreciate the nuances of the english language. (throwing temper tantrums at people can really hurt them!) OUCH!
Great series book and we come to find the Ogre an endearing character along with his band of fellow travelers he picks up. The first of the story, regarding Tandy, is quite relatable to any young lady facing the task of trying to thwart the advances of an unwanted older suitor.
If I had any criticisms it would be that it drags a little and is somewhat hard to follow Smash's adventures into the Gourd. To much time spent on explaining the technicalities of how the Ogre gets himself out of situation.
Recently I've begun reading this to my kids and they love it. My daughter gets a lot of the jokes and puns, the boys (who are much younger) just enjoy me reading the parts of smash in a deep booming and craggy voice. They laugh almost every time.
The entire series is a treat to read, and one of the few book series I intend to own in it's entirety.
