Would have given it 5 stars if not for length (627 pages)! Already downloaded the second in the list to read!
I must be a stick in the mud, because I didn't find this volume as funny as most of the reviewers on this post did. Maybe I don't find pot spirits funny anymore - and it was funny that the municipality constable had a 20-year pot monkey on back to the good, sticky stuff, but I couldn't find it humorous. Just sad, really. However, I enjoyed the quirky spirits and the goofy qualities, but I found I didn't 'get' the volume as much as I should have, perhaps. Early chapter was the best. Loved the debate about the Amish affiliations of the mélange hanging in the eat-in. The "Yearn Wallet", though, was just too out there for me. I did really enjoy all of the goofy qualities - the crazy lady, Molly Michon, the Hero Little one of mutant-amazon movies, was the best sense of all. I'm so glad she got a happy denouement.
