glad you realized it on the first book. little me was not so lucky. I am glad you were spared the majority of it!
I have been there with Heinlein and the Xanth series, yo, I feel your pain.
Wait, Xanth? Like Piers Anthony, the cute semi-formulaic high fantasy series based on puns? …aw.
I guess I never actually read that many, but I liked knowing they were there. What happened?
