    Spoonbenders PDF EPUB ↠ Audible Audio spoonbenders ebok, Spoonbenders PDFSpoonbenders by Daryl Gregory is a 2017 Knopf publication This book was a real treat for me It’s eccentric hilarious a madcap family saga and a thoroughly entertaining fantasy I am showing my age here but I do remember stage shows during the 1970’s where people performed variations of telekinesis such as bending spoons with their minds I had forgotten all about these stagemagic shows until I saw the title of this book and I knew I had to read it This story is centered around ‘The Amazing Telemachus family’ featuring Teddy Telemachus the family patriarch who is in truth a con artist But his wife Maureen is the real deal She really is psychic and their children have inherited her paranormal abilities Irene can tell if someone is lying or telling the truth Frankie can move objects with his mind and Buddy can see the future The family stage act was amazing indeed until they were outed as frauds on the ‘Mike Douglas Show’ From there the family tragically spiraled int

    Spoonbenders PDF EPUB ↠ Audible Audio spoonbenders ebok, Spoonbenders PDFThis book is like one of the magic tricks Teddy Telemachus performs in it and like the very best magic tricks you know a trick is being performed on you you know your eyes are purposefully forced you know a trick is coming and you still get blindsided when it finally happens It was just so awfully clever and I had such a blast trying to figure things out ahead I enjoyed this so much while at the same time wanting to whack some characters on their heads The Amazing Telemachus' are a family of psychics or con men depending who you ask After being debunked on live television they live a uiet life; Teddy the charming weasely patriarch astral projecting Maureen and their children Irene human lie detector Frankie telekinetic and Buddy clairvoyant Years later even their grandchild Matty is not sure what is true of their family lore and what Teddy made up until he has his first out of body experience when he realizes tha

    Spoonbenders PDF EPUB ↠ Audible Audio spoonbenders ebok, Spoonbenders PDFFind all of my reviews at Stars “Once we were Amazing” As soon as I saw this title on NetGalley I had what I’d like to call a “♪♫♫♪ I want something just like this ♪♫♫♪” moment When I saw the author was Daryl Gregory who I’ve had pretty decent luck with a couple of times in the past my decision to click the reuest button was solidified Spoonbenders is about exactly what the title would lead you to believe – maybe “That was just an act A stage show They got debunked”“Did they Perhaps But perhaps they merely stopped performing” Back in the day the Telemachuses Telemachi were all the rage Led by the patriarch Teddy and his beautiful bride Maureen the family wowed audiences with not only their talents but also with the skills of their children Buddy
