I'm a bit fan of fantasy so I really love the idea of magic in food. It is a strange and a very interesting book to read.
Thanks for the review by the way 😊

I never could get into The Lord Of The Rings but I love All the Narnia books and fantasy in general. Fish Wielder by J.R.R.R (Jim) Harrison managed to make a book that combined all the great fantasy quest aspects of LOTR and the land of Narnia with a giant dose of humor!
I really enjoyed this one and look forward to reading more from this author.

This book makes me appreciate fantasy the more. It's funny and mind capturing. Fish Wielder by J. R. R. R is now officially among the fantasy books I love.

A combination of fantasy and humor sounds interesting. I will, however, pass because this isn't the kind of book I would normally read.

I'm not quite sure if this is my type of book. However, the name sounds fantastic and it has humor. I may have to rethink my preferences. Great review

Another sci-fi/fantasy, which is just not the genre I enjoy reading, even if this one is described as a unique fantasy. So, I'm going to pass for now.

This review by rssllue I can say it's one of a kind. It creates that urge to read the book 'Fish Wielder by J.R.R.R Hardison. I bet almost everyone who goes through this review by rssllue will definitely want to try the entire book. No one would want to miss that farce and fantasy rssllue has expressed in this review.

Fish Wielder by J.R.R.R Hardison is a book I'll really want to read ...I'll definitely add it on my shelves.

Traditional fantasy plot elements of a fight between light and dark, in this case the Dark Brotherhood, combined with a spoof? With the Norse feel of the name Thoral and the Fellowship of the Pudding, it's clear what's being sent up here. The best spoofs do work as stories in their own right too, of course!

The book isn't usually the type of genre I read bit I must say, I was really enjoying it. The character and his surroundings were portrayed so vividly, I felt like I was there. I could see, smell and feel everything. I love the dash of humor incorporated into it.

I would highly recommend this book to fantasy readers. Great choice to any personal library. I see good things coming for this author.

I am a massive fan of Piers Anthony and Robert Asprin as well as Christopher Stasheff, so this review has me very intrigued. I will be adding it to my 'books to read' shelf.

Fish Wielder's front cover may be a far cry from a heartening read; however the book reviews are actually impressionable enough to allow wanderlust through the immaculate fantasies. It sounds captivating for any age group provided you are willing to let your imaginations go wild!
