Odd ExamOdd Exam is a novella from Piers Anthony about an unusual college entrance examination Entrance exam I read a lot of Piers Anthony in high school and college—The Xanth series Bio of a Space Pirate the Incarnations of Immortality The books were clever and fun and when I stumbled across Odd Exam I wondered why I had stopped reading him The premise isn’t really that uniue—many authors play with some variation on the idea that regular people are put into a magical world I’ve done it myself in an unpublished novella I wrote in college So I was especially interested in discovering what Anthony’s take would be on this theme The ending was pretty obvious early on but it’s the journey that gets you there and I found that mostly enjoyable What bothered me—and I can’t get past it—was the stilted dialogue which totally surprised me I don’t remember this being a problem in the other Piers Anthony books I’ve read It is possible that this stilted dialogue was on purpose The two main characters are very smart but have a great deal of difficulty with social interaction I kept thinking that autistic people I know sometimes speak this way especially when dealing with difficult emotional situations If it was Anthony’s intention to place his two heroes on the autistic spectrum I applaud him and apologize for the low rating But as it is the dialogue overwhelmed the parts of the story I liked and dampened my overall enjoyment
