This one felt a bit simular to the myth books in a sense and this is more of a quest and hunting after each other groups, general blitzkrieg was really funny in this one :. Sep 01, Ross rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Only die-hard Robert Asprin fans and maybe not even then. Shelves: , fiction , science-fiction , humor. I was surprised to find another book in the Phule's Company series in the bookstore, as I hadn't heard anything about it.
Apparently it was published in , which makes me the latecomer to the party, but I expect I didn't hear much about it because it's a lackluster addition to the Phule series. The novel itself follows in a similar vein to the others in the Phule's Company series, but just doesn't have the same sparkle or life to it. In all the other novels, the whole Omega company of the Spac I was surprised to find another book in the Phule's Company series in the bookstore, as I hadn't heard anything about it. In all the other novels, the whole Omega company of the Space Legion misfits of the most misfit branch of the military has to adapt to a new assignment on a new planet, and succeeds, thanks in part to a bit of dumb luck and the willingness of their Captain Willard Phule to spread his inestimable wealth to give his company the best operating equipment and facilities in the new location.
This novel focuses less on the Omega Company and more on only a handful of members.
Phule's Errand (Phule's Company, #6) by Robert Lynn Asprin
Phule has to rush offplanet in attempts to catch his butler, who has gone on vacation but didn't leave his security-code for Phule to access his financial records. A couple of his soldiers surreptitiously follow to aid Phule in his efforts, but always end up a step behind their commander, who in turn is always a step behind his butler Beeker. The hijinks on their tour to four new planets are tired and leave the reader wishing the novel was over. The parallel plot of General Blitzkrieg performing a surprise inspection while Phule is gone is almost as uninteresting, although it is tempered a bit by a little interaction with various members of the Omega Company.
As I'm assuming this is the final book in the Phule's Company series, this was a sad way to cap off the stories about Captain Jester and his ragtag band of misfits. I know it may not have been planned to be the last in the series, but it still felt like it was a "straight-to-video" addition to the series tacked on just to take advantage of the name and characters Asprin worked so hard to develop in the early 90's.
May 30, Andrew Wilkerson rated it did not like it. Horrible ending to a great series. The first three books of this series are amazingly written. You grow to love all the characters, and there are a lot of them.
Book four lost some of its heart, and got a little convoluted. Book six gets a lot more simple, its just a giant chase. Phule must go chasing after his Butler who has run off, because if Phule's computer spends too long away from his Butlers, it will kill P Horrible ending to a great series. Phule must go chasing after his Butler who has run off, because if Phule's computer spends too long away from his Butlers, it will kill Phule They only shove in the death angle to give a reason for Phule to follow, but its stupid and makes no sense if you think about it.
What heart this series had is gone. I sold the entire set after i finished this because i no longer cared about it. I love Asprin. The Myth one, however, had a solid reason for his second to leave his main character, and a good reason to follow him. I hate to put the blame on Peter Heck, the co-author, but the Phule series when to pot after he got involved. This series should have stayed a trilogy. If you are thinking of reading this series, stop at book three. Dec 02, Joseph rated it it was ok.
enter site Phule's Errand is the last book of the Phule's Company series. If one compares this to other books of the series, it was only okay to poor. The basic plot throughout the book was Beeker and another person go on a vacation only with a short term notice. This plot seemed a bit childish and boring because the same thing got repeated over and over.
The humor of this book was minimal to almost non existent compared to olde Phule's Errand is the last book of the Phule's Company series. The humor of this book was minimal to almost non existent compared to older Phule books. Writing style was bland, didn't feel exciting or anything.
Robert Aspirin wrote fabulous books in the past but this one felt more like Peter Heck. One also has to remember that this book was written at the end of Robert Aspirin's life so one cannot judge this book as suspect other Aspirin's books are like this. They are NOT!! Would recommend only to those who want to finish the Phule's company series.
Set your expectations low or have no expectations when reading. It's a book for enjoyment. Jan 02, Carena Wood beimler rated it did not like it. I thought I liked Asprin as an author The "puns" and jokes just sort of lay there like "Military Intelligence ". Barely worth a polite "heh". So with the humor falling flat you have a plot that is contrived and a solution that was never explained.

And which was whipped out in the last half chapter Honestly, I won't read any others in this "Phulish" series, and I may reread others to see if it just appealed to young, new, me. The version of me who thought rough plays on w I thought I liked Asprin as an author The version of me who thought rough plays on words were terribly clever.
Aug 05, Tim Hicks rated it did not like it Shelves: science-fiction. This is a very weak effort in the series - I've read three of them now - and it's lame enough to put me off reading any others. Flimsy plot, with main premise never really explained. Silly characters, with no sign of any effort at creativity. I know that Asprin will never be up for a lit'rature award, and I have read the Skeeve series too.
I don't expect a masterpiece.
