Standard

November 15th Geekdiac.

Drages (March 21- April 19)
You find yourself in an antisocial mood but are unfortunately thrust amongst people. Most of the will annoy you. Writing a song about your feelings will make you equally annoying. Sing it to people in all its off key glory. People won’t bother you again.

Lyconus (April 20- May 20)
Someone is going to suggest that it’s perfect tequila weather,  you shouldn’t listen to them, you will despite my warnings. Just make sure you are wearing clean underpants without any holes in them. You will thank me later.

Alienni (May 21- June 20)
You are as always stunningly beautiful this month. Always are, always will be. Just keep being adorable you and everyone will adore you. Totes adorbs.

Sither (June 21- Jul 22)
Tomorrow is going to make you snappy and angry. Someone will spill glitter on you and you will pass on craft herpes to others. Eat cake. Cake fixes everything.

Timeo (Jul 23- Aug 22)
You will cry tomorrow and let out a micro wee. Deal with it. It will happen.

Vampirgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
You’ll develop an obsession with erotic fiction. You will want to talk to everyone you meet about it. Be careful,  people may think you’re a bit of a dirty old man.

Captaira (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Why won’t you let me love you. Try wearing pastels tomorrow and pop a flower in your pocket. It may just free your mind.

Ewokorio (Oct 23- Nov 21)
Beer is not the answer to all the questions you have… a nice dry white is.

Gallifrius (Nov 22- Dec21)
Somebody is going to tell you that you’re bringing sexy back, as you never left sexy never left, so clearly they’re stupid. Tell them to go make out with a hot dog. Then squeeze ketchup on yourself for added affect.

Warricorn (Dec 22- Jan 19)
Tennis shoes. Wear them. I see either tennis or running in your day.

Magus (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Dreams come and dreams go but for all of this what do we have to show? Dreaming of legends but living on lounges all the while your heart just flounders. Get up and do some squats. Clear that head with exercise.

Jedes (Feb 19- March 20)
Your wife doesn’t find farting funny.  Not in the lounge room,  not in the kitchen, not when watching TV, not whilst eating dinner. Maybe put some glow dust in your buttocks to make your wind more exciting.

Book Review: The Impossible Quest – Escape From Wolfhaven Castle ~ by Kate Forsyth

Standard

It’s an obvious comment to make but it’s true, The Impossible Quest is impossibly good.

“Tell your lord to beware,” the wild man said, gripping Tom’s arm with a dirty hand. “The wolves smell danger.”

From the opening lines the reader is thrown straight into the action. Who is the wild man, how does he know what the wolves are saying, and why must Tom tell his Lord? Such action and curiosity lures the reader on and Kate Forsyth keeps the reader baited with masterful storytelling throughout the entire novel. I should know, because this reader read the whole thing in one bath sitting. I must admit I topped up the hot water a few times to keep on reading just one more chapter.

This story is meant for upper primary students, who I know would love this (my niece can be expecting her own copy for Christmas… no she can’t have mine I want to read it again!), but also adults will enjoy this. It is written in that sweeping epic style of Feist, Eddings, McCaffrey and Jordan that will keep adults happy but with the youthful exuberance of Rowling and Rodda which the kids will love. Kate Forsyth has even managed to give an elegant nod to the classics with beautifully chosen character names that are reminiscent of Arthurian legend. The Impossible Quest: Escape from Wolfhaven Castle manages to be delightfully magical, darkly adventurous, deeply passionate, with a dash of whimsy, all at the same time.

And as for the ending… I don’t want to give it away (“Spoilers Sweetie,” as the Whovians say) but it manages to be utterly enchanting, a satisfying resolution yet an absolute cliff hanger all in one. My mind is officially blown.

Kids will be sneakily reading it when you’ve dragged them to boring social functions and adult Fantasy fans will finally have that perfect sized book to read on the train. All in all a wonderfully written book and yes, I’m hanging out for the sequel.
