    1. Ironically, I stopped reading Dave Barry because he was too ephemeral, and moved on to the 19th volume of the (decidedly trivial) Myth Adventures series. But Asprin's dead, so I will probably not read any more. In the afterword, Nye announces her ownership of the series, but I've been on the fence about reading them for a whileThis one was better than some, but didn't even try for 'very good'. They get involved in a literal pyramid scheme, with a curse, and have to sort things out again. The gan [...]


    2. Although this was an improvement on earlier books in the series, it is still not a patch on the originals. Sadly this was the final book written before Robert Asprin's untimely passing. Even though it was co-written with Jody Lynn Nye, will she be able to continue the series on her own, or is it a case that it is time for the series to have a well earned rest? Personally for me I think it is time to call it a day, before I become too disillusioned with it all.


    3. It's good to have Skeeve and Aahz back together again. This time they're involved in a real pyramid scheme with sly winks at the texting phenomenon (sending glyphs, of all things). The MYTH gang is all together and dealing with a cursed building site with the usual (and unusual) complications. This one is good fun with good pacing.



    4. The gang is back together! That's a sign of hope, isn't it? I mean, the series has continued to spiral down in quality, and I've tried to chalk that up to the dispersal of the corporation and the books focusing on individual characters. Surely Myth-fortunes, the last book Asprin was involved in writing, could bring it back from that decline, right?The answer is yes, though it's still not up to the level of the earliest books. We're back to a group effort with Skeeve front and center, with no ext [...]


    5. When Bob Asprin returned to writing after a long hiatus in the 90s I don't think he was ever quite able to get back that feel. The gap had been too long and his personal and financial troubles changed his mindset. I was ecstatic when he began to write more Myth novels but they never felt as fun as they'd been before the hiatus.Myth-Fortunes is certainly an improvement on books like Myth-Ion Improbable but the puns seem very forced even now (and some of them are hard enough to work out without an [...]


    6. Yay, these are getting better. This one was a heavy satire of pyramid schemes, in this case a literal pyramid scheme where Aahz is convinced to buy piece of the pyramid and in turn convince his friends and acquaintances to buy in as well, all in the name of profit.Meanwhile, Skeeve is trying to figure out how to go on a successful date. A bit awkwardly and ineptly, but his friends try to help. Overall, good story. I'd recommend it to folks who like puns, magic and scheming. It's a light read, no [...]


    7. Nu tā, Mītu sērija ir veiksmīgi piebeigta. Beigas bija diezgan nekādas, tomēr tas nemazina manu sajūsmu par sēriju kopumā, tās brīnišķīgo pasauli un humora izjūtu.Par šīs sērijas vienīgo mīnusu var nosaukt to, ka apstāties būtu vajadzējis jau pirms dažām grāmatām, bet nevarētu apgalvot, ka pēdējās grāmatas man pagalam riebās. Bija patīkami pakavēt laiku kopā ar Skīvu un viņa draugiem un apceļot mītu iedvesmotās dimensijas.


    8. From the fallout of "Myth-Chief", the Myth INC crew have landed in their new adventure with their new staff alignment. It's all about tombs and an Imp is ready to draw Aahz in for all it may be worth! Is there something wrong with Aahz?! Faster than you can say "oh-no!", the crew lands in a pyramid scheme to top all pyramid schemes! This is the last Myth book before Asprin died and it goes out with a bang. now on, it'll be Nye's show.


    9. Wonderfully funny series. The books are always packed with all sorts of pop culture references, a lot of which I'm sure I missed.Skeeve and Aahz get involved in a pyramid scheme, a big pyramid with blocks sold to beings as a final resting place when the time comes. Each level up is higher priced and Aahz wants the point, the highest priced. Notoriously tight with a gold coin, the way he reduces his cost is bringing in more customers for the lower levels, getting a discount for each sale.


    10. Almost, but not quite the same. This was the first 'post Asprin' book in the series - which itself had already suffered from years of Asprin's writing block/financial woes/rights issues. It is solid, and more of the same, but it feels like Nye hasn't given herself permission to own the characters yet. They feel as if they are slightly puppetized, frozen in time.


    11. For a while the Myth series had produced some mediocre books. This time, the gang is back together with a refreshing blend of comedy, magic, and originality. There are so many puns involving pyramid schemes that one has to chuckle at them. The blending of ancient history, magic, and extra dimensions makes this one of the best books in the myth series.


    12. A solid adventure in the world of Skeeve and Aaz. It's actually not one of my favorites. I felt like I wasn't seeing enough of everyone else but it was strong in many areas.I read the afterward and learned that Robert Aspirin died in 2008. Sad to hear that. I was a big fan of the Myth series as well as the Phule one.


    13. Skeeve and Aahz involved in a cursed but literal pyramid scheme. I have read and loved the Myth series for years and this comes close to but does not quite meet the expectations set in Aspirin's original books.


    14. OK enough, but there were some disconnected parts which jarred: Skeeve and the secretary shifted stories in particular. The puns seemed much more forced, but it’s still an improvement over the last couple of Myth books.


    15. Very readable. Funny and warm. I have read Asprin's books with my kids since they were little. We still all enjoy them as adults. Nye seems capable of keeping the franchise alive for that kind of audience. Which is good.


    16. I found this en enjoyable fun read. Nothing dark or serious here. The jokes were funny enough, if not up to some of Asprin's earlier work. Jody Lynn Nye is getting better!



    17. This was about as high a three as I could give it before it became a four. I just didn't think I could go there.


    18. The last Myth book finished just before Robert Asprin's untimley passing. We will miss him. This was a great way to go out.
