The cover immediately appeals to my love of adventure and fantasy. It reminds me of a childhood cartoon - HeMan and the Masters of the Universe. I would read it on the basis of the cover alone but the 4/4 rating is very encouraging because this genre can tend towards that comic-strip simplicity. I am excited to dive into this world and look forward to a good, no, a great read.

Comedic fantasy is really hard to pull off, but when it's good it's usually great. If that's your jam, I highly recommend Mogworld by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. It's a satiric masterpiece.

I also found the Fish Wielder to a very unique read. It did not seem to similar to any fantasy book that I had read before. I loved the humor that the author included throughout the book. It made it a fun read!

When I saw the title of the book I actually thought the book was written for the interest of fishermen, but going through your review presented an urge to try it out.

That is a wonderful review from you. According to you, the book is a comprehensive package. So I will read the book.

This one sounds like so much fun. Your review makes me think of Douglas Adams and his Hitchiker's Guide. I’m going to have to put this one on my to read list.
