Gospel Of Loki by Joanne M. Harris


The Gospel of Loki is an interpretation of ancient Norse mythology from the perspective of Loki. While it does have some similar points to main Norse mythology, there are some changes. This makes it much more interesting than if it were to be a carbon copy of the real mythology.

The book is extremely interesting and was an enjoyable read. It had a few bits of humour and was all in all a very good book. I would definitely recommend this book to other with an interest in good fiction, fantasy and mythology. I think a broad range of readers would be able to enjoy this book. I give it a score of nine out of ten.

Avengers: Endgame

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Avengers Endgame by the Russo brothers is a sequel and finale of the Avenger Infinity War. The movie takes place after Thanos snaps half of all existing lifeforms in the universe. The avengers only try to undo the snap after help from Scott Lang who was stuck in the quantum realm for five years.

The main characters try once again to save the world from Thanos and save their loved ones. Overall this movie is one of the bestselling in the franchise at the box office since its release on April 25th.

The only factor to bear in mind is its length. It has a running time of three hours but it flies by. I give it ten out of ten.


The Speech

My heart starts beating faster,

A flushness takes my face,

Flashes of disaster,

My pulse a rapid pace.

The sweat on my brow thickens,

My tie feels like a noose,

A seconds length is quickened,

My stature is reduced.

Hands filled with tremble,

A blur covers my notes,

No words do I assemble,

A lump within my throat.

So many eyes upon me,

Do they see my anxious state?

Their silence blocks my helpless plea,

They’ve doomed me to my fate.

But as I start to speak,

I feel a blissful calm,

The redness leaves my cheek,

My fate no longer damned.

My words are without flaw,

Closing line I finally reach,

I hear the crowd applaud,

And so I end my speech.

The Weather

Soar, soar, birds are soaring

Clouds, clouds, clouds are roaring

Rain, rain, rain is pouring

Soar, soar, birds still soaring

Clouds, clouds, clouds still roaring,

Does the rain ever stop pouring?
