Personally, I dont' understand the direction some of the other reviews have taken. I enjoyed the book (As I had all the books preceeding) immensely.
Though Perv wasn't quite as bad as I would have expected it to be (Picture New York, only every fat half-drunk slob has the proportional strength to dismember you in seconds, magic is interwoven to technology, and food has a tendency to leave yoru bowl if you don't eat it quickly), it was still an interesting world for Skeeve to get lost in.
As for Skeeve, we get to see that beneath the exterior we see him try to build up in the previous novel, he's still nervous, inexperienced, and for once, finding himself without the security blanket of his friends that he has been able to rely on up to this novel. Fortunatly, the dumb luck that he possessed from page one of book one still remains, and he needs it.
Due to it's late nature in the seires, one would be recommended to read eariler novels first, but if it's your first time in the myth world, it can still be a fun book, if not one as understood (Several elements in this book will make much less sense).

It's not clear to me whether I saw this book as a disappointment because it was in fact a disappointing book, or because it diverges so much from the manner and style of the previous Myth stories. I think it's the former, but I would be remiss to not mention the latter.
The story line involves Skeeve's search for Aahz on the notoriously nasty dimension of Perv. That, in itself, is a shift for Aahz's character. In this book, and in the prior setup to this book, he seems more like a whiny, co-dependent wimp, running home to mommy when things don't go his way, rather than the confident smart-aleck I've loved from the previous books in the series. This I found disappointing, but what was perhaps even more disappointing was Perv itself. Where Asprin could have created a horrific world for outsiders, blending powerful magic and technology with blinding intolerance for outsiders on the level of the KKK, he instead offers up Manhattan on a pretty good day. I would feel more comfortable in Asprin's Perv than I would in South Chicago, and that in itself is a profound disappointment.
As for the story itself, that too is disappointing; a rambling mess focused not so much on Skeeve's efforts to find Aahz, but just Skeeve trying to survive in an unfamiliar, but not entirely unfriendly environment (especially after Skeeve waves his cash around a bit). The ending itself is also disappointing, as it comes about not from Skeeve's efforts to reach it, but despite those efforts.
As I said earlier, my disappointment in this book may be a result of the expectations set by the earlier books in the series, in terms of tone and style. This is a very different book than the others in the series.

Of all the Myth series i have read so far, this has been by far the best. Robert Asprin has timed this change of style very well. After sharing in the action-packed adventures of Skeeve and Aahz and all their friends, this book allows Skeeve to think about all the good times he's had and do a little soul searching. Skeeve reflects a lot on his life so far and we also learn a bit about Aahz along the way. I was able to see a new side to Aahz - his life before he met Skeeve. There are many questions answered in this book about the reason why Aahz acts the way he does. The unpredictable ending was brilliant and nearlly made me cry when it seemed that all hope of finding Aahz was gone. We are swept along so much by Skeeve's thoughts that we forgat that things may not always be as bad as they seem. Much of Skeeve's thoughts are affected by his feeling of isolation on such a hosile dimension. Asprin is a great writer and can really create such an empathy with the characters i feel as if i know them as my own friends. i definitely recommend this book to anyone who has already read some of the previous books in the series. however, if you've never read a myth book before, this book may feel more like a short story than an adventure.

Robert Asprin continues in his unique way to write some of the most humorous fantasy available on the market. In this book we finally understand why Aahz is so...interesting. Skeeve takes off on his own to try to find his mentor and friend. On the way he meets a number of the residents of Perv and discovers why it has the reputation it does. He also learns that, just like home, not everyone is alike. The ending surprised me in ways I didn't expect even though I always expect twists and turns when reading Robert Asprin's works. If you are a fan of this series you will love it. If you haven't yet read the series, what are you waiting for?

I had not read any of the Myth books in several years, but I picked this one up recently because it looked interesting. It is undoubtedy the worst Myth adventure that I have read(even worse than Myth-ing Persons(!)). No one can be as stupid as Skeeve is, particularly someone with his experiences. He should have grown up by now, and he hasn't. Usually the books work because his companions are interesting, but in this one Skeeve has an adventure of his own, and handles it, and himself, badly. The book wasn't worth the effort of reading it.
