Piers Anthony's Xanth books are like that for me: Something that theoretically I should be over and not enjoy anymore, but I still do. Book Number 5 was Vale Of The Vole, and I chose to read it because while reading Owen Meany I was thinking about some of the books I've.

Other Avon Books by Piers Anthony. He paused to look about and listen carefully. He didn’t want any creature of Xanth, tame or wild, seeing him enter, because then the location would be no secret, and sooner or later his folks would learn of it, and his privacy would be lost. He had been lucky: he had been in the vicinity in the month of AwGhost, when barrel trees gave up the ghost if they were going to, and had seen the spirit departing.

Vale of the Vole 3. stock, preferred Smash as a man, so usually that was what he seemed to be. Esk could not voluntarily turn ogre, but when he got mad enough or desperate enough he did develop some ogre strength

Vale of the Vole 3. Esk could not voluntarily turn ogre, but when he got mad enough or desperate enough he did develop some ogre strength. It never lasted long, but of course it didn't need to; one strike by an ogreishly-powered fist could pulverize the trunk of a rock maple tree. Similarly, he was normally inept at acting, but when he really had to he could become temporarily proficient. That was his heritage from his curse fiend grandmother. Most of the time it was his human heritage that dominated, since he was.

I think Vale of the Vole by the author Piers Anthony is a very good fantasy book. It was also very funny at certain points. This book has all the magic of Xanth and then some! Join 3 interesting characters on their amazing quests in the punny, exciting, and wonderful land!

I think Vale of the Vole by the author Piers Anthony is a very good fantasy book. I love how Piers Anthony thinks up different fantasy creatures, for instance Nymphs, Ogres, Hippogriffs, Centaurs, Unicorns, Demons, Griffins, and Voles. My faviorte part was when Chex the Centaur learned to fly. The part that I hated was when Ivy, Esk, and Chex went to Castle Roogna. This book has all the magic of Xanth and then some! Join 3 interesting characters on their amazing quests in the punny, exciting, and wonderful land!

When Esk, a young ogre-nymph-human, began his pilgrimage to the Good Magician Humfrey to rid himself of a seductive demoness, little did he know it would become a mission of mercy. A running river paradise and its harmless inhabitants were perishing in the wrathful wake of a greedy demon horde. Now it is up to Esk and his companions--a beautiful winged centaur named Chex and a brave burrower Called Volney--to search Xanth's treacherous reaches, gathering together a mind-boggling company of creatures to defend the precious Vale of the Vole.

I've been on a quest to read all of the Xanth titles in a row and it has been a truly fantastic experience. I've neglected to write reviews for some of them because so few people are reading the series these days. Which is a shame as there really is nothing out there in fantasy that compares...
As for Vale of the Vole this is as good as it gets. The underground chases are so vivid and intelligently written that I really felt like I was down there! And the amorous trap scene rings true in mundania as well. ie. Should I stay or should I go? :) This title is my favorite so far and who cares if I feel this way after every Xanth novel? Piers Anthony FOREVER!!!

I really like how puns are used by the Author, "Piers Anthony". I love this series so much, I have purchased all the books of this series, as I have of, "Incarnations of Immortality". The Incarnations of Immortality" is the first book of that series, as of "Bearing an hourglass", "With a tangled skein", "Wielding a red sword", "Being a green mother. If you are into fantasy, and reading of literal puns, you should love this book.

Wow! Other than the yellowing of the pages, this book had never been opened! A 30 yr old book in like new condition. I couldn’t find this book in any library or even as an e-book. Very happy to have this childhood favorite. Love the whole series.

On a scale of one to ten the tenth book in this series is a ten. A couple of minor characters get their chance to shine. Chex, filly of Chem centaur and Xap hippogryph, Esk, son of Smash ogre and Tandy nymph, and Volney from the Vale of the Voles embark in typical Xanth fashion. They each have their own personal issues that compel them to search out the Good Magician Humfrey. Mysterious forces throw their missions together and they travel the length and width of Xanth and even into the gourd together picking up acquaintances along the way. Marrow Bones and Bria Brassie from the gourd, and Latia Curse Fiend. Packed with puns and full of adventure, no one should miss out on a visit to the magical land of Xanth!

Great book. I read a few of the series when I was a teenager and just recently decided to go back and discover the series again. I was so surprised to see how many books are in the series and I'm excited to get the chance to finish it.

Three outcasts set out to ask the good magician Humphrey for advice but the magician is missing. So they set out to fix the problem without his help and in the process learn to deal with the rejection they have lived with.
I bought this book, and all the others before it, for my son. I read the entire series as a youth and thought he would love it. I was right! The humor is ageless, and my son is avidly devouring the series. If you read one, or all of the Xanth series, don't hesitate to buy for your young readers (age-appropriate, of course)
