|Book Title||The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus.|
|Review|| Reading Mario. The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus. published by Watkins Publishing, London. ISBN. 978-1-906787-21-9. |
A difficult one... considering his own qualifications, apparently speaking 4 languages, and having studied comparative languages at the University of East Anglia, etc. I am dumbstruck.
His versions of the French originals have on occasions words I have never seen in any other original?
His translations of these verses is beyond my senses, what can I say?
...Somewhere in France, the head of the inquisition, Inheritus Leavitus, is reading the Centuries;
Suddenly he is outraged and calls for his second in command, Knowus Nothingus...
"Hey! look here, this Frenchy Jewy person has given the game away, he's called Hitler by his real name, oh, Mon Dieu! what a disaster.
Send Writus Wrongus and Ambiiguous Nonsecus to arrest him immediately."
(k. N.)what if the dark queen Medici objects? what mediosus shall we use to calm her?
(H.L.) OH, YES, send biggus Cockus with them, he'll know what to do, oh and send Rigurous Collectus, to confiscate these truthful; oh, I mean, blasphemous books.
[the orders given, Inheritus Leavitus and Knowus Nothingus are left alone, and Inheritus begins to sweat and talk to himself out loud....
"Oh dear, oh my, what is going on, next they'll be revealing the truth about everything. We must confuse their language, but how, how can it be done?
(K.N.) I KNOW, I'VE GOT IT, WE'LL MAKE THEM ALL THINK THEY CAN READ AND TRANSLATE FRENCH.
(H.L.) oh, Knowus Nothingus what would I do without you........
If you want a laugh a day, then purchase a copy of his hilarious book, and learn a lesson in life, rating 1 on content, on humour 10, the most ridiculous book I have ever read.
In summaryA work of pure comedy, who knows what French original he used, his translation is pure fantasy, by far the worst author I have come across, this man makes stones produce oil, and asses win medals in dressage.
Heaven preserve us from a man who has learned to talk out of his bottom.
