Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The newest volume in Anthony's most popular series (Zombie Lover, etc.) is for truly dedicated Xanthropologists onlyAfor it's filled not only with horrendous puns but with a maze of references to past books in the saga. When an environmental disaster threatens Xanth, Edsel and Pia, earthling game designers with a shaky marriage, exchange bodies with the presiding demon of Xanth, Nimby, and his consort, Chlorine. Nimby and Chlorine face culture shock and the risk of being trapped on Mundania (aka Earth), while Edsel and Pia grapple with the more complex task of averting a catastrophe. Leaping from wordplay to wordplay and rapidly straining readers' patience with their marital troubles, the young couple eventually travel both in Xanth and in time to fulfill their quest. Occasionally a bright scene, such as Pia and Edsel's visit to the Isle of Talents, is handled cleverly, reminding us of Anthony's ability. But these moments are outnumbered by sophomoric jokes about the Adult Conspiracy to keep teenagers from having sex and the power of women's panties to disturb males. The novel won't alienate the faithful, but neither will it convert unbelievers. (Oct.)

From Library Journal

To avert the disasters that threaten both the magical world of Xanth and the real world of Mundania, Mundane computer designer Edsel and his wife, Pia, exchange bodies with Xanthian natives Nimby, the demon, and his mate, Chlorine, in the hopes that each couple can save their host world from destruction. The latest addition to Anthony's popular Xanth series takes on computers, chat rooms, and the web with the usual plethora of puns and slapstick humor. Purchase according to demand.
