Quirky, totally fun. A combination of "magic", time travel and computer programming in a delightfully told story. ( )

I disagreed with the premise of this book. Using technology back in the medieval times? Nah. Not my cup of tea. ( )

Very dry, crisp humor - and it's definitely funny! The writing occasionally seems a bit blunt, but maybe I've been reading too much epic fantasy. ( )

It's amusing, there's a lot of humor, but it's too campy for my taste. Still, I was having fun, more or less, until it took me back to the Middle Ages, at which point I quickly stopped caring.
