Kurzbeschreibung

Life isn't easy in a cut-throat city ruled by guilds, especially for a freelance thief who refuses to swear fealty to the local thieves' guild.

Beset by thieves and threatened by assassins, Gaspar is forced into a madcap hunt for a magical artefact. Confronted by danger at every turn, he and his friend, Hubris the Spellbroker, become entangled in a bizarre web of intrigue, politics and outlandish fashion. They soon realise that they are just pawns in a greater game, but who is their real adversary and how can they disentangle themselves without ending up seriously dead?

This humorous fantasy novella (28,500 words) is a prequel to the novel, Gaspar The Thief (126,000 words), also by David A. Lindsay.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! 12. Mai 2013

I finished "Gaspar And The Fantastical Hats" last night(at 3am) since it was too good to put down.
I really liked it and can recommend it to anyone who likes Pratchett and other humouristic fantasy. With the Gaspar books, David have created an Ankh-Morpork like city where things ain't quite as it is in our world.
All I can say is. Read it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen David Lindsey will become a new fantasy author favorite in no time! 25. Juni 2013
Von Melissa Chesley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was quite a fun read. Lots of twists and turns in such a short tale. All in the name of fashion! Gaspar seems like a fun character and I can't wait to read 'Gaspar the Thief', eventually. He seems to have lots of courage where his friend, Hubris, doesn't.

This story was a fun, fast read. Very well paced, not too slow, not too fast. You weren't overwhelmed with too much information at once. I honestly didn't know what to expect, as I have never read anything from this author before. But I have seen Mr. Lindsey's 'tweets' on Twitter and 'Gaspar the Thief' has me captivated. So when this book came up free for a short time, I snatched it up, quick as a nimble fingered thief.

Gaspar is a pretty low key character. He isn't overly hyper, or overly confident like so many thieves can be. He's confident enough. Whenever he's faced with a situation that's not his area of expertise, he has his friend, Hubris, to rely on. The two make a great team and work well off of each other.

I found it very difficult to find a good spot to put this story down. Very well written, I liked it a lot. If you enjoy fantasy as much as I do, this author will soon become a favorite.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Full of humor and twists 29. Mai 2013
Von Hippy_Lettuce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Funny escapades abound in this short story. Double crosses, thieves, and assassin's, all working outside of their respective guild's. All for a fashion statement. The things men will do to please a woman.

If this short story is indicative of the novel it precedes, I'm gonna be reading it next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen HAT HIJINKS 12. Oktober 2014
Von Barbara Ann Mojica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This fantasy novella just short of one hundred pages is set in medieval times amidst dark alleys, cobblestone streets, a wizard’s den and raucous taverns. Gaspar has just spent the night at one of his favorite haunts, The Bag O’Silver Inn where he could pick up gossip on who to target and who was after him. Shortly after, two assassins named Sloat and Weasel confront him in a dark alleyway. An unknown intruder saves his life.

The Council of Guild Masters run the city. These guilds are arranged in a hierarchy of power. Strangely enough the City did function. The wizards had a monopoly of magical artifacts. Gaspar is a petty thief who is a freelancer not a member of any guild. How does he get involved in a dangerous caper? The women of the Merchant’s Quarter had taken a liking to wearing hats that were decorated with magical objects. Some of the wizards began taking bribes, while the milliners took advantage of the fad. Eventually magical artifacts became scarce. Gaspar is enlisted to steal a magical artifact for one such hat. His friend, Hubris, the Spell-broker is recruited separately to steal another. They break into the Wizard’s Hall where they are confronted with a golem, a giant living stone statue. Both thieves must steal an artifact and successfully escape the golem. These partners will discover that appearances are deceiving; the plot twists and turns to reveal new deceptions, and the reader does not foresee the conclusion.

The characters are interesting and the plot well developed in this novella even though the sentence descriptions can be wordy at times. The combination of fashion, mystery, adventure and intrigue are nicely balanced in the right amount for a middle grade reader that will appeal to boys and girls. The golem’s riddles are a nice touch; they will encourage young readers to ponder and philosophize This book can easily be read in a couple of hours or broken up into sections for discussion as a class read aloud.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent, fun read if you are a fantasy fan 21. Juli 2014
Von A Cormier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this novel. The details were all in place and the descriptions, dialogue, and characters were very well crafted. I appreciate and respect how the author was able to put a lot of descriptions into his people, places, and things without detracting from the story. I know from personal experience that doing so can be a challenge. Many other writers try to add details in the wrong places and they bog down the narrative or confuse the reader. I am happy to say this wasn't the case with Gaspar. The world that he created was very intricate, and the different guilds within it all served to broaden the depth of the world.

This was a very fun read, and I can't recall a single error, which shows it was well-edited. Kudos for that! My only complain with this novel is minor: a lot of dialogue was in italics. I found that a little bit annoying after a while. Otherwise, I have nothing but good things to say about this inventive fantasy tale.
