By this time Piers Anthony is losing the magic that made him so refreshing a read in the first place. There's hardly anything new and even the puns are getting dull. I think its time he moved on to other works. If he doesn't, then his readers will.

Yes, he's quite the wit with puns and words and phrases, and yes it's fun.... but enough already. Let us have some interesting storyline too! I think I still like best the story A Spell For Chameleon. It was heartwarming. Roc and a Hard Place is just an exercise in wordiness. Does he get paid by the word? No character development, no plot development, just more and more and more of the same.

This book is excellent. It truly is and always will be one of Piers Anthony's best novels. It is my personal favorite of his whole Xanth series, which I follow VERY closely. I practically LIVE Xanth. Anyway... this is THE GREATEST ONE OF HIS NOVELS AND IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME, I RESPECT YOUR OPINION, BUT PITY YOUR WRONGNESS! C-YA!

I wish Piers would have stopped writing in the Xanth series, even though I continue to read the newer ones. Then I would have been spared the pain of having each successive book being slightly less amusing. It becomes so old after this book that I don't know why I bother anymore...BUT the older books in the Xanth series are delightful. Invest your time and money in those.

Roc and a Hard Place is my first Xanth book(Sept 1998). It is excruciatingly punny. I loved it, loved it, loved it! All the others I have seen since then (Harpy Thyme, Valley of the Voles, Colour of Her Panties) are hilarious. This series is a must-read for all not-so-serious fans of fantasy who are sickened by the blood and gore that pervades most of this category of books. I only gave it five stars because they wouldn't let me give it ten!

Like all of the Xanth novels, this book is absolutely wonderful. I couldn't put it down!

I honestly stopped reading Xanth novels for a while after reading this novel, fearing that any other ones after it would be as bad.(Needlessly, as it turns out, as the series gets better afterwords) It reads like a mish-mash of jumbled ideas he had all thrown together, with plot as an afterthought. If you want to read a Xanth novel, read "Spell for Chameleon", "Ogre, Ogre", "Castle Roogna", "Zombie Lover", or even "Faun and Games". But not this.
