    One thought on “Myth-Taken Identity”

    1. I've lost track of what number book this is in the Myth Adventure series (number 15 apparently). I'm not sure that the co-writer thing is working too well. Much of the humour seems to have disappeared, the plots seem a bit forced and predictable (rather than spinning off at a tangent), and there now seems to be an awful lot of repetition. Also there are certain inconsistencies from the original series, which I have noticed creeping in. Having read the previous books in the series, I shall persev [...]

    2. The series isn't what it used to be, but it's been going for over 20 years, so you have to expect that. Asprin's writing style is submerged in this two author novel, so the pacing can be a bit slow at timesThis novel relies on puns and jokes around shopping malls, suffers from a bit of a lull in the middle, but works as light fantasy reading for a quiet afternoon. There's nothing new here, but it's a nice visit with character who have been built up over t5he last 15 books.

    3. Maaaan, why do they keep cutting out characters?? I understand the series has hit a Segway and we are going in new directions with plot and overall story arc but I miss everyone being together (yes it's gotten to that point) MYTH-inc took so long to form and then it just disbanded after a few books. There are still several books 📚 to go in this series, so let's hope everyone gets back to where they are suppose to be, together kicking ass. There is always something new to love about the series [...]

    4. Mīta sērijas piecpadsmitā grāmata; šogad esmu atspēries šo sēriju pabeigt. Laika vēl ir diezgan, lai tas notiktu bez piespiešanās, un arī uz jauno grāmatas līdzautori es lieku lielas cerības.Kādu dienu pie Āza mājas ierodas parādu piedzinēji. Izrādās, ka Skīvs ir iepircies lielveikalā ar viltotu kredītkarti, kura izrādījusies bez seguma. Veikalnieki ir nolēmuši piedzīt simtiem tūkstošu zelta gabalu lielo parādu. Āzam gribot negribot ir jāķeras klāt šīs liet [...]

    5. Like Myth Alliances, this novel veers from the usual Myth Adventures formula by including first-person and third-person narration. In addition, it tells the first-person part of the story from Aahz's point of view, but it doesn't feel like the Aahz from Asprin's solo novels. I guess it makes sense -- we only see Aahz how Skeeve sees him, but now we get to see what's going on with him without seeing him through someone else's perspective.Myth-taken Identity feels less pointless than Myth Alliance [...]

    6. Myth-taken Identity (2004) 294 pages by Robert Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye.In this caper, Aahz, Chumley and Massha go to The Mall to investigate why a bill collector showed up at M.Y.T.H. Inc. saying that Skeeve had run up an incredibly large bill and not paid it. They find out that someone or group has been able to somehow use a person's credit card to impersonate that person. The book introduces a couple of characters from Aahz's past (before he met Skeeve) and several more that were shopowners, [...]

    7. Good, but way longer than it needed to be.I received this book as a gift from my husband. He was poking around on and noticed this series had more books. We'd both thought that was done with since the author (Aspirin) passed away, but apparently he wrote a few more and transitioned the series into the hands of another author (Nye) before then.Anyhow, about the book. It's pretty much what I was expecting: a bit of fantasy, a lot of puns, and some humorous multi-dimension sleuthing. If you like t [...]

    8. The Myth series is all about puns, wordplay, magic, and fantasy. This one is no different. The head of Myth, Inc, is the wizard Skeeve. A former Court Magician and spell-caster for hire, he is, above all else, a good guy. So when people show up claiming he is running up huge bills, his friend Aahz can't, and doesn't, believe it. This must be investigated, and so Aahz goes to the Mall.In addition to a scathing send-up of people's habits, there are puns, identity theft, the evils of Credit Cards, [...]

    9. The book was good and had characters readers of the series are familiar with. It also brings in themes from other books the reader is probably familiar with. It, as the others, was a light hearted room in fantasy fiction. It's a good book to read to get away from the more serious novels and non-fiction books.

    10. I have to give it a solid five. It's not as punny as some of the earlier myth books and the magic is toned down. But it more than makes up by having solid characters rather than placeholders in which to insert puns. That's the major change in the myth series from it's early roots to it's later days. Just reread this for maybe the 4th time since I found out there were more myth books than I imagined. I liked the early books which were more situational. I much prefer the books in which everyone i [...]

    11. I've been re-reading the Myth series over the past year. I've probably only read this once before. This couldn't hold my interest. I'm not sure if it's merely a weak story that lacks the elements that made the earlier books compelling. A lot of long series usually have a dud. (Terry Goodkind's 7th book should not exist, frankly it can be skipped with no loss to the full series experience). It might also be that it was too superfluous for my reading moods these days. I didn't finish this but I'm [...]

    12. Zase bez Skeeveho(skoro). Tentokrát to ale ujde. Niekto sa v Hypermarkete vydáva za Skeeveho a vytvára mu dlhy, vymáhači teda kontaktujú Aahza a chcú svoje peniaze naspäť. Aahzovi sa to nezdá a tak naberá Marfu s Kulíka a vyrážajú do sveta extrémnych nákupov a ukradnutej identity. Konečne záver knihy neotočí dej o 180 stupňov na 10 stránkach, ale príbeh a zápletka pekne plynie cez nezdary tímu až k dopadnutiu zlosyna, ktorým je tentokrát ctižiadostivá krysa-upratov [...]

    13. I think I'd have been happier without the Lord of the rings references, but the rest of the concept was amusing.The quotes need to comre back. They added something. The story coming from Aahz's point of view was a bit jarring, but it was interesting to see how he views situations.

    14. One card to rule them all,One card to charge it!(Ja šo klausās audiogrāmatā, no tās sasodītās dziesmiņas nevar tikt vaļā!)Šoreiz Asprins pievērsies kredītkaršu kaitīgajai ietekmei un priecē lasītājus ar Āzu grāmatas galvenā varoņa lomā.Asprātīgi, kā jau pierasts, un patīkami akšonīgi. Pārsteidza mītu sērijai neparasts atrisinājums, bez ierastās izvairīšanās no problēmām un visa izrādīšanos par pārpratumu.

    15. This is the final book in the Myth series that I own and frankly I'm happy to be done. I lost interest in the series at least four books ago but I'm pleased that I ended on this one. It was more humorous than the last few instalments and I saw a little of that tongue in cheek, funny little tidbits that I had enjoyed in the beginning.

    16. A good addition to the Myth series, the satire is still dead on, but one of the characters doesn't make it into this book. Love the comments on certain shoppers having worked waaaay too much in a mall.

    17. Love this series though the early books are my favorite. No Skeeve in this one exactly. Mostly Aahz. No more chapter quotes either. Just the theft of various plot lines from other places and spoofed together in the normal mything way.

    18. I am not sure what number this book is in the series, but it is one of the later ones. The plot is clever and the writing is very funny. However, the reader must be familiar with the other myth books to appreciate some of the situations.

    19. I have read several books by this author. This particular book was not that exciting, but for fantasy it is easy to follow and pretty humorous.

    20. Not a bad addition to the Myth series, but I felt it definitely lacked something from the first 6 or so books. Worth the read, but not at the same caliber as the first books.
