Engaging satire

Occasionally wise in spite of himself, the self-absorbed wizard with the enormously long name offers clever aphorisms on life to the reader while his reluctantly obedient scribe provides a cynical commentary in chapter end notes. The writing has a nicely convoluted style, perfectly suited to the content, with enjoyably droll humor both in the wizard’s egotism and his scribe’s objections. Some nicely timed surprises add to the enjoyment as a wizard proves the truth of his statement “Be open to your limitations that you may learn. Look on your failures as successes that you may grow.” What I liked best were the suggested approaches to being under attack, reminding me of Monty Python’s “What if he comes at me with a pointed stick” sketch. What I liked least was flipping through pages to remember what some of the end-notes meant. Short fun satire, by equal shares odd and humorous, Mulogo’s guide is an enjoyable quick read.
