|User Summary:||Nico tries once again to enter a surfing competition, but things are complicated when he arrives several millennia early.|
I found this volume a bit disappointing. I laughed a couple of times, but the humor feels less fresh than before, and the plot didn't do much for me -- it's basically a play on the Trojan War motif, and this has been done before to greater effect. While the previous book felt like it was leading into something more epic, this is rather short and small in scope. Also, this time around, there are absolutely no traces of gamebook influence. Despite its shortcomings, this remains a short and pleasurable read, but I had expected more. Still, this seems to exist partially to set up the next volume, so perhaps things will improve....
