    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldTales of a trickster godLike stories about Anansi Coyote and Loki Jack Vance describes the misadventures of Cugel the Clever in picaresue fashion Set in Vance’s far far future world of the The Dying Earth in his inimitable style blending elements of science fiction and fantasy this 1966 publication is at times hilarious but always entertainingWhile reading I smiled freuently and laughed out loud at least a couple of time

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldIn this treasure island of a book Jack Vance had hidden two treasure troves his wild imagination and his flowery language And it is pure delight to find them bothCugel was a man of many capabilities with a disposition at once flexible and pertinacious He was long of leg deft of hand light of finger soft of tongue His hair was the blackest of black fur growing low down his forehead coving sharply back above his eyebrows His darting eye long inuisitive nose and droll mouth gave his somewhat lean and bony face an expression of vivacity candor and affability He had known many vicissitudes ga

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldI have already gushed enthusiastic about the opening volume in the Dying Earth epic It seems I should have kept some of the hyperbole in reserve for later books as the appeal of the setting and of the characters show no sign of slacking with this second book It's also interesting to note that the saga of Cugel the Clever is not simply an iteration of a success formula In many ways it is an improvement over the experiments in style from the first bookFor one thing the book is better structured with a framing story of the hero being sent on a uest and a seuence of related picares

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldWhereas Vance's previous volume in the The Dying Earth series was composed of several short stories each featuring a different character The Eyes of the Overworld focuses on one character Cugel the Clever Though the book is episodic in nature each story was published separately over the course of a couple of years before being compiled in this volume the

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldOddly enough I think I enjoyed this second book of Vance's Dying Earth much better than the first It's not only smoother but it also tickles most of my funny bonesCugel is one hell of a damned rogue Very flexible of morals uick of wit and easily a loveablehateable anti hero In most respects I felt like I was reading a high fantasy version of Gulliver's Travels always skirtin

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the Overworld50 stars Jack Vance deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Isaac Asimov Arthur C Clarke and Robery Heinlein He is a master story teller and unlike the aforementioned authors Vance's books do not seem dated and can be read today with the same sense of wonder as when they were first written The Dying Earth books are spec

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy LiteratureI’ve already said numerous times how much I love Jack Vance so I’ll skip all that this time You can read other reviews on this page if you missed thatThe Eyes of the Overworld is the second part of Tales of the Dying Earth and the main character is one of my favorite Vance characters the self titled Cugel the Clever Cugel is not the kind of guy you want to have dealings with — he’s clever sneaky completely selfish and remorseless He is always trying to figure out how he can take advantage of other people in order to make his own circumstances betterIn The Eyes of the Overworld Cugel decides to burglarize the house of Iucounu the Laughing Magician so he can sell some of Iucounu’s thaumaturgical artifacts But the magician catches

    The Eyes of the Overworld review Ï 0 The Eyes of the OverworldThe Eyes of the Overworld is a great book but I'm going to take a contrarian stance and say that I actually preferred The Dying Earth Yes I can admit that I wasn't totally smitten by the amoral not so clever misadventures of Cugel the Clever after he crosses Iucounu the Laughing Magician Yes this book contained all the same sly tongue in cheek humor t
