My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is another one of those books I read when I was twelve or thirteen and haven’t touched since. I started to re-read the other day and was a little underwhelmed at first. The book started out a little slow, and I’d forgotten how much Piers Anthony loved puns.
I was about to go look for another book when Luna came into the picture. That was when things started to get interesting. The love story between Death and Luna was what really made the book shine. I’m glad I didn’t put it down a page too early.
So why a four and not a five? The match stick logic thing was a little silly and annoying (although I’m sure I didn’t think so when I was twelve). And the trip to see nature reminded me way to much of the Xanth series and getting to the magicians castle.
