Publisher's Summary

In Xanth, everyone has a talent. But that doesn't mean everyone loves his talent, and no one understands that better than Hapless. Endowed with the ability to conjure any instrument he wants, Hapless could be an extraordinary musician if only he could play a tune that didn't fall ear-piercingly flat. His one desire is to find an instrument he can play. When the Good Magician hears about Hapless's desperate desire, he sends the young man on a quest to find the elusive Isis Orb, a magical talisman that could fulfill his wish. Setting out to achieve the impossible, Hapless meets an eclectic mix of creatures that join him on his journey, all with wishes they hope the Isis Orb will grant.

Xanth

Xanth is a wonderful series of books! I have loved them since I discovered them in my uncles bookcase at 13 years old. Ever since I have made sure to read each novel when it comes out.

Piers Anthony is a wonderful author who, I believe, is underrated. If you haven't started reading or listening to his novels I strongly recommend them. My first was "Man from Mundania".

Brett Barry was a wonderful choice of readers. his voice is easy to listen to. I wish he would read the entire Xanth series, including the ones that were recorded in the 80's.

Give this book a shot! You will love it!

Poor narration

Read way too fast, and his character voices could be hard to understand. Can not recommend this audio book

perfect book if you are a 12 year old BOY

really!!! so disappointed. This one is being returned. Can't believe a grown man is selling a book that seems to be based on panties, breasts and quests. I haven't gotten too far into the book. I can't get past the fact that the main character keeps going on and on about the other characters curves and about how he keeps passing out or nearly so when he sees their panties and breasts which of course the females in the story are all topless. This story is so sucky.
