Piers Anthony, sometimes called Pier Xanthony, is the pseudonym of a Mundane character who was born in England in 1934, came to America in 1940, was naturalized in 1958, and moved to Xanth in 1977. His first story was published in 1963, and his first novel, Chthon, in 1967. His first Xanth novel, A Spell for Chameleon, won the August Derleth Fantasy Award as the best novel for 1977, and his fantasy novels began placing on the New York Times bestseller list with Ogre, Ogre.

Animate spells he could understand, such as those of the unfortunate chameleon; they facilitated comfort, survival, or image for living creatures

Animate spells he could understand, such as those of the unfortunate chameleon; they facilitated comfort, survival, or image for living creatures. But why should inanimate things have magic? Did a lake care who swam in it? Well, maybe so; a lake was an ecological unit, and the community of living things within it might have a mutual interest in promoting it. Or a freshwater dragon might be responsible, luring in prey. Dragons were the most varied and dangerous life forms of Xanth; species occupied air, earth, and water, and a number breathed fire.

A Spell for Chameleon is a fantasy novel by British-American writer Piers Anthony, published in 1977 by Ballantine Books/Del Rey Books. It is the first book of the Xanth series. In this adventure, Bink is exiled to Mundania because he has (inadvertently) broken Xanth law by not having a magical talent

I got this for Kindle because somewhere I have the paperback.
This is the first book in the Xanth series and Piers Anthony had me hooked on the series with this one.
I will admit in some of the later ones, the puns start piling up too fast. Even being from a punny family, too many can make me ill. (Refer to Richard Amour's 'Get thee to a punnery'.) But most of them have some very sly puns. If you go a paragraph or so without a pun, you missed it. I'm still kicking myself for a few puns that got past me first time through. Then it is face palm time.

A Spell for Chameleon is a very interesting book with an awesome premise. In the land of Xanth, every person has some type of magical power, be it a major power or minor. Bink, the main character, does not believe that it has any magical power, so he begins a journey to determine if he has any power or not. On this journey, Bink will encounter a couple of friends and numerous formidable foes. He will learn much about himself and Xanth. In the grand scheme of things for Xanth, Bink may be the most important person in the history of Xanth, but Bink does not know his importance, and only one other person understands just how important Bink may be. It's a grand adventure, that neatly concludes with a love story that you may not have realized that you were reading, and it does an excellent job of setting the stage for sequel in this series. Highly recommended

I love Piers Anthony books. This book is one of many in this set. He makes you use your imagination a lot through the whole book. He takes the simplest thing and turns it into something else. This book is so much fun to read. I read this book every chance I got. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen. I would recommend to anyone whole loves to through themselves into the fantasy world.

Pierce anthony has been my fav author since being a teen. His books helped me past some quite painful times.
Jumping into Xanth made me feel free.
Now this book is just as amazing as i remember it.

Very smart and amazing writing the story just glows and pics you up.

It’s about bink and having no talent and the puns and story just makes it rock. Love it

This is a magnificent fantasy novel. A Spell for Chameleon is the start of a great series and is, by far, my favorite book. Its sexual themes and references, and heavy vocabulary make it a little on the iffy side for children, but I cannot recommend this book more.

Pros:
-The lore is rich and enthralling. Obviously a lot of thought went into the land of Xanth.
-A very good story with fantastic plot. If there are plot holes, I haven't noticed.
-The novel is written in a way that allows the readers into the main character's thoughts to make a very engaging story.

Cons:
-Not for kids. Some of the words used in the book forced me to pause, refer to a dictionary, and look them up. And it refers to a lot of mature things, like killing, rape, and war.
-The book, up until Chapter 2, drags on and on, and is rather boring and poorly written. After this, it picks up.
-Character names are strange and seemingly whimsical. Bink, Zink, Fanchon, Jama,and Potipher are good examples.
-The world can get a bit overly convenient. For example, magical shoe bushes grow fresh shoes, baked bread bushes grow fresh, baked bread. This, though silly at times, doesn't detract too much from the story, but I still found myself rolling my eyes and thinking "Well that's rather convenient."

This book is fantastic, I've read it twice already, and still love it. It even inspired me to write a novel of my own. It was worth replacing my damaged copy to read it again.

This is the FIRST book in the Xanth series written by Piers Anthony! As well, this one is written in a "complicated language, so it would not be mistaken for a children's novel." The quote is from Piers Anthony in a letter to me; you can write to the author and he answers you. I thought I had this book on my Kindle but it downloaded this one anyway. When I found the other one I wrote, asked him and this was his response. As an adult I will enjoy reading this one more, and you probably will too. Set in the fantasy land of Xanth, you have to have a magical talent to live there. Come along on the adventure of a lifetime and see what it is like to live there, find your talent or get thrown out to live as a Mundane human! You can't miss!

I read this years ago and it is just as good as I remember. An engaging hero who is self effacing but bright and courageous. A heroine who is both clever and beautiful but in an unexpected way. A villain who is not really bad and a magical imaginative world that is unparalleled I. Fantasy literature. A true classic worthy of six stars!
