Hans Frederik Follestad
his books are not available in English (yet). The books are called "De
Fire og Han Som Gjør Galt
Verre" in Norwegian, it should be approximately "The Four and He Who
Makes Wrong Worse". The tree books are a fabulous Norwegian
fantasy, almost as funny and non-logical as Adams. Follestad writes
enthralling and humourously, while making fun of all genres, especially
fantasy, action and spy novels.
The Four are reincarnated wizards and
have to use every knowledge they no longer have to save the world. He
Who Makes Wrong Worse is a pompous and spoiled kid who always
knows best, and sometimes actually do.
In Follestad's writing it's
not mandatory for the good guys to
always be good and for the bad guys to always be bad. I love that kind
The front cover makes you think this is a kids book, but
that's wrong. You have to know a little something about grown up life
to catch the funny stuff. Most parts of the book are not suited for
children under ten, they just wouldn't know what it meant.
