I read this and loved it as a kid. As an adult, it seemed too juvenile. The concepts are still funny, and I would highly recommend this to parents getting something for the kids. I had a hard time nailing down what I didn't like about A Malady of Magicks this time around. I don't think that I was particularly a fan of the narration. Definitely listen to the sample prior to spending the credit.

I can still remember the first time I read this series after getting it from an old book club that I belonged to. I found it hilarious then, and still do, and I went on to get all 6 books of this wonderful series.
The problem with this purchase is frankly, the reading. The only voice Goya sounds believable in is that of Ebenezum. Unfortunately, its not Ebenezum telling the story. Many times, the voice inflection did not match the emotion, and plain and simple voice inflection as to if a statement was a question or not, was out of match. Goya was simply out of touch with the characters true identity and mannerisms from on the onset.
This is simply a case where a great book cannot be enjoyed for the lack of effort in its story telling.
