    "Jack Vance doesn't get enough respect, He was one of the great writers of the Golden Age of science fiction. How world-building is impressive, and his adventures always exciting. Maske: Thaery tells the story of Jubal, who comes from a noble family, but finds that when he goes to the big city, his nobility is outweighed by his being considered a bumpkin. How he finds his way in society and makes his fortune is the basis of the plot, and is a very satisfying tale. I wanted to spend more time in this world and found myself wishing Vance had made this book the basis for a series."

    "The rating for this book is not appealing at all. I would consider it not one of the finest work of the author and at the same time if people were to ask or need a book from the author, this one is not one on top of the list."

    "This is a very old and probably not so popular book. However, it does not appear that Jack Vance is a very well known artist."
