Book Overview

The world of Xanth is a jumbo pun fest, a confabulation of convivial confections, where cottages are made of cheese, and bees are excellent spellers. Almost everyone in Xanth--whether centaur, ogre,... This description may be from another edition of this product.

Magickal Musings and Enchanted Wanderings

The Xanth series is a collection of Tongue-in-Cheek adventurous wanderings through a world where word-play is reality and reality is like a Dream World, from-which you cannot awake--yet, the stories are fantasy episodes comparable to the other great works of the genre, by your favorite Fantasy Writers...only, with a comedic twist and a perfectly placed punch-line (which, in his world, would probably be a running of the gauntlet, with burly men throwing wild swings at your head) now and then! Piers Anthony is a master of word usage and placement--just look at his other titles, even the book names he comes up with make you curious to see what's inside the artistic covers of his stories. "A Spell for Chameleon" is the place to embark upon the tour through Anthony's strange and exciting universe-- but, when the tour of Xanth is over, go visit the world of "The Blue Adept." Piers Anthony is a wonderful writer and one of the men who helped me survive High School. After reading some intense Terry Brooks, I'd kick-back with some Xanth novels and relax a little. I very-much recommend the "THE APPRENTICE ADEPT" series, which is unlike anything you have probably read, before.... You will thoroughly enjoy Stile's adventures and his attempts to live in Two Worlds, simultaneously.

Tickle my toes.

From the first time my best friend handed me Piers Anthony's "A Spell for Chameleon," I've been stuck in the land of Xanth quite happily. The characters are just so interesting, and reading through these is never more of a burden than eating candy or popcorn. They are completly delightful, and the stories don't wane, each is uniguely magnificent in it's own respect. I'm on book seven now, and haven't felt any mileage yet. Oh and by the way,...I'm not a baby! -I turn 21 this month!- It's not just for children; just those who like to like to randomly smile in solitude.


Xanth is the absolutely best series I've gotten my hands on! All the books are excellent, and the part I like most about the books is all the puns! I eagerly await some more Xanth novels!

Get lost in Xanth!

Someone once told me that you can't READ fantasy, because it is a "visual" thing. Well... Piers Anthony has opened up the movie theater in my mind with the Xanth Series. If you love fantasy (and puns), I HIGHLY recommend getting lost in the beautiful, funny, and exciting world of Xanth. PS... it's much better if you start from the beginning, so if you're going to read them, get "Spell for Chameleon" first.

A wonderful myriad of magic and wacky puns....

Xanth is a wonderful creation of fantasy literature. Piers Anthony creates a realm of magic and intrigue that is truly unique. Landmarks and terrain not unlike Anthony's own home state of Florida, Xanth is filled with mythical creatures that only the most creative minds could dream up. I started reading Xanth novels when I was 11 years old and i've been hooked on them since! If you're a fantasy lover, you'll wonder how you never came about reading one of these novels sooner. Each novel has it's own story line and events so there is no need to hunt for the first book to start reading. Just pick one up and enjoy! Now available in a library near you! S. K.
