Summary
"Piers Anthony's 37th adventure in Xanth changes the Mood to one of Doom! Kody woke up in a hospital bed, not knowing how he got there. Before his questions could be answered, he was told that he was about to undergo surgery, and that there could be some side effects.... And then he woke up again, this time in Xanth. Kody is the only person in Xanth who has not been affected by a dreadful spell that reverses how people see each other. What was adorable is now loathsome. What was ugly is now beautiful. What was loved is now hated. Kody has clearly arrived just in time! Only he has any hope of reversing the spell, turning Esrever Doom into Reverse Mood"--

Review
While undergoing a medically induced coma in the real world, Kody dreams he is present in the magical world of Xanth, a land that bears a suspicious resemblance to the state of Florida. The natives all suffer from the curse of Esrever Doom, which reverses perceptions so that what is beautiful now seems ugly and the ugly seems beautiful. Only Kody is immune, so to him falls the task of reversing the curse and saving Xanth. VERDICT The 37th installment (after Luck of the Draw ) of Anthony's beloved series maintains its successful formula, featuring a clueless hero who quickly learns the way of the world—and its many puns. Some puns are clever while others are groaners, but fans of Xanth should enjoy another variant on a familiar and ever-popular theme. --Jackie Cassada (Reviewed September 15, 2013) (Library Journal, vol 138, issue 15, p50)
