5.0 out of 5 stars This is why people worshipped these dark gods, 2 Sep 2014
This review is from: Wolfsangel (Paperback)
I can't understand why, but this book almost make me feel ill, in a deranged and obsessive way, and utterly brilliantly.

There's something so compelling about the world where the Norse gods are real that truly brings out the insane nature of their worship like nothing else I have read.

This may sound bizarre, but other religious themed writing has never resonated with me, I haven't felt any passion in them, yet these depictions of the gods, their powers and their followers I find nightmarishly gripping.

I's almost as though it's repellent in a way, but I genuinely feel almost possessed when reading them, and it makes understandable the genuine belief and power of that belief that these ancient societies experienced.

I thoroughly recommend this series, they are like nothing else I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really thought provoking, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a parent of two lots in this resonated, it's no easy though to translate into actions but I'll think twice before jumping to conclusions

5.0 out of 5 stars Best starter guide to Magic I have seen, 27 Jan 2006
This review is from: Street Magic (Hardcover)
I bought this book in order to entertain my children (7 and 9) and ended up amazing my work colleagues as well.
I have dabbled in magic a few times, even bought the Royal Road to Card Magic (which is excellent and still recommended by virtually all magicians) but this has the benefit of fantastically clear photography instead of line drawings, and a much wider range of tricks including some easy to perform mentalist skills that have superb effects.
He is genuinely enthusiastic about explaining the tricks to someone who has never done them before, and has really thought about the tips that accompany them, which so many guides ignore
The fact that he is left handed but has bothered to photograph all the tricks from a right handed pov shows to me a real dedication to detail (although sinister readers may disagree).
All in all a delight to read, and a book to keep rather than read once and leave on the shelf.
