    I give this book 2.5 stars. It’s not that the story is bad, the basic premise is cute and I liked the switch that was pulled early on. The problem is that it is trying too hard. It’s over, over the top. It’s not just making fun of fairy tales, it’s trying to make fun of things that make fun of fairy tales. The jokes are too planned out, and the few things that do feel organically comical are ruined by added punch lines. Everybody has silly names, everyone has a huge personality, every locale is ridiculous. It’s like they said lets make a book version of a Shrek, Monty Python crossover and be twice as absurd. And what was the deal with all the penis jokes? For me this satire of satire wasn’t droll it was dumb. I won’t be reading the next book in this series.

    Kill the Farm Boy

    I bought this because of the witty blurb and the first critic listing said "Monty Pythonish and Terry Pratchett's Disc World". I thought it was more like Robert Aspirin's Myth Adventure series myself. The authors take all the familiar tropes from the fantasy world and turn them on their head in a very entertaining manner. Definitely some surprises on store for the unwitting reader! Have fun!
