The Worm Returns Reviews
The Worm Returns, by J.R.Rain and Piers AnthonyThis was a fun, fun read. I am convinced that Anthony and Rain were revisting their 14-year old, junior high selves when writing this novel, as only a going-through-puberty male could be so hilariously obsessed with sex, genetalia, and bodily functions. I'm sure they wrote this while staring at the life-sized poster of Pam Anderson in her iconic red Baywatch swim suit each had hanging on their wall. When I first started reading this novel, I was a bit apprehensive. The writing was so simple, it almost seemed like a children's book, but that thought was quickly swept away. Yes, the writing is simple, but so are the characters. There's Bad Buffalo, a rootin', tootin' cowboy who seldom bathes and shoots anything he doesn't understand (which is everything), and his horse, Horse. There is Dia, the wood sprite of many sizes and undeniable female charms. Dia, using that time-proven tactic of getting what you want by promising sexual favors, convinces the uneducated, ill-mannered Bad Buffalo (BB) to help her rid the world of the aliens who are sucking it dry of magic. He agrees, because that's the only way Dia can get enough magic to become human sized and fulfill her sexual promises. And, where BB goes, Horse goes. So, the three of them set off to plug all the wormholes the aliens are using to travel to the earth. Soon, they are using said wormholes to travel to other worlds in order to find help in their quest to save magic on earth. Along the way they team up with a world of bugs that can repel the magic leeching entities invading earth, a sentient caterpillar robot to guide them through the wormholes, a cockatrice named Crag, and a were-horse named Marey. Can they defeat the enemies and solve the problems so magic can return to earth, Dia can become human sized and BB can have her promises fulfilled? So much fun. The writing is simple, yet true to the storyline. The characters are diverse and amazing. The adventures predictable, yet hilarious and oddly satisfying. Lots of puns and plays on words and Dia had to have a massive headache from the eye-rolling she must have endured. This is not meant to be a serious drama, it's pure fun. And it delivers. Did I find errors. Only two, and both in the same spot. At about 428 on my Kindle: ...that didn't seem to right to Bad Buffalo. Should this be "didn't seem to right to Bad Buffalo" ormaybe "didn't seem too right to Bad Buffalo." and He knew darn well had gotten into him(insert "what" between well and had to make thesentence make sense).But that was outweighed by all the chuckle worthy prose, mostly at the expense of the main character. For instance:Once, he heard someone say that he was ambidextrous.Bad Buffalo shot him, of course. No one calls Bad Buffalonames he ain't ever heard of. or maybe this exchange between Marey and Bad Buffalo: Marey: "...I have decades of abstinence to make up for,and damned if I'll wait on the equine cycles." Bad Buffalo: "Absinthe's strong, all right,..."I think Rain and Anthony had a very good time writing this novel. And it shows. The good thing is that the reader has an even better time reading it.
Come witness a highly entertaining, word-slinging duel between masterful storytellers J.R. Rain and Piers Anthony. You can literally see them writing their characters into crazy predicaments and handing the reins of the story to the other; while also weaving a solid, and hysterical adventure. Who wins? We the readers do, of course! (I bet the authors had a blast too)Buffalo Bill isn't your typical hero. He isn't a hero at all until a buxom, blueberry-blonde pixie leads him around by his... nose. Their adventure to save earth's magic from intergalactic worms is completely insane, hilarious, and even a little naughty. This was a fun and guilty read. I have no regrets! The humor in this story is in the vein of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Young Frankenstein, or Blazing Saddles. So, if you can't appreciate the humor in those classic flicks this may not be the story for you. If you can, then you'll love it!!Warning: Do not attempt to read this book and partake in a beverage at the same time. To do so could lead to unfortunate circumstances. --- You've been warned.
Wow, hard one to comment on. I grabbed it because the Author was Piers Anthony and his writing style really comes through. The story reads a bit like a young teen style but it had adult pieces in it as well. It is a perfect palette cleanser between more serious books.
