A Book I Wish I’d Never Read
I should have known better than to think that I’d enjoy Piers Anthony’s attempt to bring FURTHER CLOSURE to his Incarnations of Immortality series. Cos, y’know – he’d already released the last book twice already.
Once in 1986 with For Love of Evil (Evil/Satan, dur) and again in 1990 with And Eternity (Good/God) – so when this came out (self-published, btw, and apparently he didn’t spend any of his Xanth money on editors) my initial reaction was “Oh, FFS AGAIN?!” because he’d already played me with “NO THIS TIME IT’S REALLY THE END GUYS!” before.
BUT, of course I still had to read it.
Because I’m an effing
stubborn ass completist and it takes A LOT for me to give up on a series.
So, one day a few years ago, I decided I’d spend the afternoon knocking this one out, just so I could (figuratively) close the book on this series.
Aside: That’s not to say I don’t still love the first few books (particularly Gaia, Death and Fate), but really – done should be done, dude.
Anyway. I started reading.
This book is supposed to follow Nyx, the Incarnation of Night. It does, but it takes a really roundabout way of getting there, with stops in Magic Dildo Town and Pedophilia Station.
So, yes. I pretty much just skimmed it after the Magic Dildo made an appearance and couldn’t tell you more after that.
I wish I didn’t even know about Nyx’s Magic Dildo.
Okay, guys – what do you wish you’d never read?
