    1 thought on “The Time of the Transference

    1. Jon-Tom ist am Boden zerstört. Seine geliebte Duar, ein gitarrenähnliches Musikinstrument, mit der er Banngesang betreiben kann, ist kaputt. Laut dem Hexer Clodsahamp gibt es nur einen, der sie reparieren kann. Doch dieser wohnt weiter entfernt hinter dem Glittergeist-Meer. Also macht sich Jon-Tom auf den Weg, natürlich wieder begleitet von seinem treuen Freund Mudge.Unterwegs warten wieder etliche Abenteuer. Aber Jon-Tom und auch Mudge finden etwas, dass ihre Zukunft für immer verändern wi [...]

    2. I received this book as a gift, having not read the rest of the Spellsinger series. Despite this, the story of Jon-Tom and his companion Mudge as they journey to repair the instrument that allows Jon-Tom to access and manipulate magic in this world of sentient animals separate (although loosely connected) to the world-as-we-know-it and former home of Jon-Tom himself was much easier to follow and understand than this sentence. The picaresque hike-with-adventure plot provided a good glimpse of the [...]

    3. This is the last of the original Spellsinger books and actually I enjoyed it quite a lot. Some of the story didn't make much sense, and the entire ending is just mad but I came out of it with a positive feeling. The onward marching plot from the first few books is now well and truly replaced with "books in a bottle" where a fresh calamity is created and resolved within one book. This was one of the more believable plots, although some of the sub plots make very little sense - in typical style fo [...]

    4. Tom vs the real world. Gotta love it and gotta hate it. Just take it for what it is and enjoy the silly little thing.

    5. Jon-Tom discovers his home4 February 2012 Well, this is the last of the Spellsinger books that I have read, though another two have been released since, however I am highly doubtful that I will ever read them. It turns out that Jon-Tom did settle down with Talea, though she is portrayed as the loyal, subservient wife who stays at home for years while Jon-Tom is out travelling the world. It is unclear why this is the case since she joined him on his original adventure and one would think that she [...]

    6. In the sixth main entry of Alan Dean Foster’s Spellsinger fantasy series, ruffians sneak into Clothahump’s tree and, during the subsequent chaos, Jon-Tom’s duar, critical to his spellsinging abilities, is broken, and thus the turtle sage suggests that he embark on an adventure to Izfan ab-Akmajiandor, or Dizzy Izzy, to repair it. During his journey, Jon-Tom and his lutrine companion Mudge encounter pirates, cannibals, talking porpoises, and a flying horse named Teyva who’s afraid of heig [...]

    7. As another spellsinger adventure this works. However, as a way of concluding the series it doesn't do so well. Talea acts very out of character and doesn't appear much. The choice of which world Jon-Tom wants to live in isn't very dramatic as he can go back and forth with relative ease. I find the main conflict itself to be somewhat stupid, as breaking the duar means there isn't much spellsinging in this book.

    8. More of the human in the magic animal world. The humor was well-placed, the characters good. But this time the females were domestic – Talea didn’t go with Jon-Tom on his adventure, Weegee tries to “Tame” Mudge – but the worst was that Jon-Tom left for years and Talea kept house for him, waiting alone. That’s stupid, and not at all like her original character. Enjoyable anyway, though I hate it when authors try to impose their own insecurities and fantasies on their characters.

    9. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

    10. I read this as a teenager.Back then I read sci-fi and fantasy almost exclusively, and this author (ADF) was one of my favorites; in particular, his Spellsinger series. Don't know if I would like this book the same if I re-read it as an adult, but in my memory it was an entertaining read.

    11. Definitely enjoyed this one and the ending seemed to pretty much wrap things up. That is until Son of Spellsinger. or whatever it is called

    12. A nice new twist in this one was a brief return to JonTom's world. It contained a satisfying ending to the series.

    13. I always find these books fun. The characters are good and I like the music references mixed in with magic. And I always try to work out how the song chosen will backfire.

    14. Highly enjoyable as always. I read these books without haste so that I may really enjoy my imagination.

    15. Time to put this book set to rest, not going to read the other two, Books one and two and five worth reading. Imo skip the rest :)
