    MP! Reviews ‘Rebecca Newton And the Last Oracle’: skimpy on the description, loaded with story

    Here in the Book Club corner of MP!, we’ve been getting stuck into Mario Routi’s ‘Rebecca Newton and The Last Oracle’, the second title in his ‘Rebecca Newton’ series.

    Set in mythical, fantasy worlds, like the Land of the White Sun (sounds like a superb place for a tan, but it’s no Costa del Sol) as well as Earth, Routi roots his story in the impossible: gods, Titans, Minotaurs and gladiator-style fights – something that we’ve loved from the Percy Jackson series, as well as the Goddess Test series. Be prepared for constant action, the plot packed with violence, monsters and trouble on the horizon from the very start. Continue reading

    Ariana Grande, Swifty, Bieber? We’ve cast some popstars to play characters in ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle.’

    This month we’ve been delving deep into the mythical epic pages of Mario Routi’s ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’. We’ve been awake at night sprinting through the chapters and we’re pretty sad we’ve finished it to be honest.

    While we were crying over Zayn and reading to take our mind off the inevitable rumours we’ve put together our dream team of popstars who we want to play the characters in this fab book.

    Read it? Let us know what you think about our ideas! Haven’t started turning the pages yet? This might just give you some inspo!

    Rebecca Newton – Jennifer Lopez

    We think Jennifer Lopez would make a great Rebecca Newton. She’s sassy and looks quite athletic, great for swirling around a crystal sword! Jenny from the block? Or Rebecca from Utopia? You decide.

    Jlo

    King Turgoth – Justin Timberlake

    Hey, Mr JT! Like Jlo he’s no newbie to acting, Justin as the striking King Turgoth would get our hearts racing. He could keep up with Rebecca Newton and he looks damn good for his age… considering he is a few centuries old.

    Getting mythological with ‘Rebecca Newton’: if pop stars were Greek Gods

    If you’re as into Mario Routi’s ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’ as we are, you’ll be totally into the mythology it’s got going on. As it was with the ‘Percy Jackson’ series and ‘The Goddess Test’ books, we’re hooked on all things Greek.

    dance animated GIF

    With that new fascination, that got us thinking: what kind of gods and goddesses would our fave pop stars be? Because, obviously, we all know that celebrities are a little bit above everyone else with their god-like good looks and angelic voices.

    Here’s our fave pop-meets-myth stars.

    5. Lady Gaga as Nike (the goddess of victory)

    lady gaga animated GIF

    Taylor Swift noticed it first and now we’re all catching on. With a total of 324 awards won, and 487 nominations, PLUS an Oscar performance this year, PLUS a new fiance, PLUS looking uh-mazing Grammys. It’s safe to say this girl is totally winning, just like Nike.  So, we salute you, Lady Gaga, as our goddess of victory. Slay.
