While previewing the scores given to the book "Geis Of the Gargoyle". I was satisfied with what it got. The overall score was 4 1/2 stars. I personally would have given it a 5 out of 5 because of how much I liked this book! The depth and perception contained in this book astounded me as it seems it did to many others. Another good thing about this book is it's awesome story line, and organized plot. Throughout the story, many mysteries are solved which makes the story all the more exciting! Peirs Anthony is truly a gifted writer and after this book, I could not help but read the rest of his Xanth series!

While previewing the scores of other people that have rated this book, I was not suprised to see 4 1/2 Stars. This overall rating satisfied me because I think this is a great book, and by the looks of it, so do many others! The depth and perception in this book astounded me because it had so much of it. "Geis Of The Gargoyle" intruiged me so much that I simply had to read the rest of Peirs Anthony's series later. The book's story line was clear and the plot organized. Even though the book had some mysteries, they get solved inthe story and thats what makes this a really good book! (I personally would have given it a Five out of Five!)

I have to admit, that I was suprised to see that this book got such a high rating, as it was the one in the series that pushed me away from Xanth. I finished it and was overcome by a sense of pointlessness in reading these books that must have begun with "Demons Don't Dream." The older books are much better, when the author actually had a story to tell, it seems unfortunate that now Anthony spends his time with Xanth in attempts to fill it with what he thinks are clever puns to appease the fans who send in their ideas, when really in my opinion, the puns are just plain annoying. I suggest Anthony stops cranking out Xanth books so quickly, and instead tries to think of some interesting stories to tell, although I have to say, there are signs of improvment with the most recent books, "Faun and Games," for example.

To be a fan of the book "Geis of the Gargoyle" by Piers Anthony, you don't necessarily have to be a follower of Fantasy literature. When you read the book you get so intrigued you can't seem to lift your eyes off of the pages. I rate this book at five stars because it is a book that gives you an adequate sense of adventure. The story line is great in the fact that it keeps you on your toes with its creative uses of symbolism and imagery. The reason this book is so good is because it has so many minute stories within the elements of the main story. An example of this is when Gary the Gargoyle is sent on his quest to find a purifier for his river, and is faced with tutoring a troublesome young child in return for the information given to him from the good Magician Trent. Another example is the way Piers Anthony includes so many characters in the novel. There are so many characters that play an important part in the progress of the novel's story line and overall conclusion. Keeping the reader in amazement. I really recommend you read this book to get an accurate picture of what a well written Fantasy story is like.

Peirs Anthony may not be the best fantasy writer in my book, but he has a great gift for light-hearted fantasy! This story takes us all of the way through the punny world of Xanth, but there's something great about this book! Most of it takes place in an even wackier place-unbelievable, right? Wrong! This place is the madness, where angry constellations stir up a fight! It's great isn't it!
In a way, this books needs no explination because really any Xanth book is worth the read, but this is one of the greater ones! Trust me! Don't miss this! Enjoy!
