No notes for slide. No Phule Like an Old Phule audiobooks for free 1. Join the army-with his butler-of course. Meet Captain Willard Phule and his company of misunderstood misfits. Together, they've taken space by storm-and left a tradition of zaniness and laughter in their wake. Desperate to kick Phule out of the Space Legion, General Blitzkrieg sends a crack team of environmental investigators-including celebrity canine Barky the Environmental Dog-to sniff out Phule and his unnatural disasters.
It doesn't take long. Phule is hosting a group of big-game hunters who think they can bag a dinosaur on Zenobia. Needless to say, dinosaurs are not a native species. But cold, hard facts never stopped a Phule. And neither will Barky's cold, wet nose. Heck, Robert Asprin.

Meanwhile, Captain Phule is asked to host a group of big game hunters and must also cope with the arrival of the militant environmental agency, the Alliance Ecological Interplanetary Observation Union the AEIOU and Barky the Environmental Wonder Dog, who takes an instant dislike to just about everyone in Omega Company. While Capt.
Book: No Phule Like an Old Phule
Phule and his casino managers set up a scheme to prove otherwise. Naturally, things do not go as planned. However, at the end of the day despite the various mishaps, pretty much everyone lives happily ever after, except the bad guys. And Elvis makes an appearance. This is the book equivalent of a popcorn movie. No Phule Like An Old Phule is a fun breezy read and should be a pleasant way to kill a couple of hours during the summer while at the beach or by the pool.

If all those threads seem random to you — they still seem random to me even after finishing the book! Jan 09, Jack rated it really liked it Recommends it for: People needing some light reading to lift their spirits. This is mind-candy Sci-Fi at it's best.
It's comedy and farce that's right up there with Ron Goulart or Mack Reynolds. I've read all the books in the series so far and I have one more new one to devour and I've yet to be disappointed - though this one comes alarmingly close. It's the fifth book in the series and the second or third that Asprin's written with Peter Heck. I think I liked them better when Asprin was writing alone as the endings were a little more logical and humorous in a wink-wi This is mind-candy Sci-Fi at it's best.
I think I liked them better when Asprin was writing alone as the endings were a little more logical and humorous in a wink-wink, nudge-nudge sort of way and less abrupt I almost said "contrived", but then again, this IS mind-candy we're talking about here! But it was a relaxing read. It's not overtly preachy, doesn't make heavy-handed social commentary and is faintly remeniscent of the Great Gatsby, when times weren't as troublesome and rich gadflies had hearts of gold, but with a little less Oh hell, it's just funny, OK? I'd recommend it to anyone that has a heavy reading load and just want's to let the mind play for awhile.
Mar 28, Kerallyn rated it liked it. This is the fifth in the Phule series, I believe, and I was a bit disappointed. The first 2 or 3 books were incredibly funny and clever and left me anxiously waiting for each new volume. In the earlier books, the main character, Captain Jester, displays just enough seriousness to balance the wackiness of the other characters and moves through the story with focus and drive to succeed again all odds. In the later books, and especially this one, he seems more of a goofball who has gotten where he This is the fifth in the Phule series, I believe, and I was a bit disappointed.
In the later books, and especially this one, he seems more of a goofball who has gotten where he is on a lark and with a great deal of luck since he spends the whole book pooh-poohing all warnings of impending disaster that come his way. And when those disasters happen, they turn out to have been not that big a deal anyway. I'll still read the next one out of loyalty to the series and hope for a turn around, but chances are, I'll have to go back to the original Phule's Company in order to get the taste of blandness out of my mouth.
While trying to swap the MYTH series, I still decided I wanted to read the fifth and due to Asprin's death the last, I think book in the Phule series - I had always found it more satisfying and remembered how the first two books had managed to surprise pleasantly with its band of misfits succeeding. Well, the book didn't floor me, didn't even make me guffaw esp. There also the two goons were the best bit, the least magical, most down to Earth beings.consdertinolte.cf
The Complete Phule’s Company Boxed Set
I'll try to hold on to this one for completeness sake. May 19, D. Morrese rated it really liked it. General Blitzkrieg is still out to get Captain Jester AKA Willard Phule and Omega Company, this time by sending an overzealous team from this world's analogue to the EPA along their environmental bloodhound literally to uncover suspected pollution at his base on Zenobia. Unfortunately, Phule is also hosting a group of big game hunters because of some applied political pressure.
And his dad has shown up at the Fat Chance Casino to chastise his son about his business strategies. AND a couple of kidnappers are again on the move to abduct the younger fool after their first failed attempt. These largely separate events don't come together into a single, cohesive story, but the mayhem they cause does provide a load of entertainment to an outside observer Sep 03, Cindy rated it it was ok Recommends it for: fans of the series only.
Shelves: sci-fi , funny. Definitely not as good as the previous ones in this series. A group of big game hunters are convinced that Zenobia is the next big hunting ground. A strange new recruit shows up for Omega Company. And worst of all, Captain Jesters aka the Phule of the title has an unexpected visit from his father.
Too many new characters, too much going on, not enough of a real story or any tension to build on. The big game Definitely not as good as the previous ones in this series. The big game hunters story line was the funniest, but really, I'm not sure I'll bother with the next one in this series. Instead, I'll reread the first two. They were much better. Dec 28, Maria rated it really liked it Shelves: science-fiction-fantasy.
Once again good fun but not quite up to the previous books, probably because Phule and Beeker aren't really the main characters and Phule doesn't take the upper hand in most of the problems and subsequent resolutions. Also Phule, Sr. I enjoyed Lola and Ernie and their unexpected good fortune, Qual and his sklern, and Thumper, the Lepoid, was a particular favorite. I was disappointed that he didn't get more time at the end. As in Once again good fun but not quite up to the previous books, probably because Phule and Beeker aren't really the main characters and Phule doesn't take the upper hand in most of the problems and subsequent resolutions.
As in most of the previous books, this one ended too quickly and too soon, but this time, knowing that it will probably remain the last in the series, I was particularly disappointed. May 12, Dana rated it really liked it Shelves: science-fiction.
The theme for May's sci-fi selection on the Goodreads book club is spoof. Someone mistakenly suggested Robert Asprin's Myth series, which is fantasy, so I countered with the first volume of this series, Phule's Company, since it's actually legitimately sci-fi. This is an annoyingly common occurence in the book club suggestion threads. While in the bookstore, I saw that there were two new ones that I hadn't read yet, so I got them in anticipation.
