      First Reads Winner.A collection of short stories centered around comedic exploits in the land of Gundarland, conceived by a big sneeze from an omniscient god, where various creatures (dwarfs, elves, yuks)travel on their own paths, the writing in the book is filled with jokes, irony, and humorous tie ins to our own world. Despite the comedy, however, the writing style is abrupt and a bit jarred - the first story in the book is almost painful to wade through because the story is essentially "Perso [...]

      Hank Quense can write such humorous stories and this a great collection. One that will make you laugh.According to Quense, the planet Gundar was named after "the omniscient god who accidentally created the universe with an explosive sneeze caused by snorting a larger-than-average dose of His favorite recreational powder."We have stories about elves, dwarves, dwelves (a mixture of dwarf and elf), gnomes, yuks, trolls and humans. He parodies Romeo and Juliet, Zorro which is Zarro and the Lone Rang [...]

      I don't know that I "learned" anything from the book, but I certainly had fun reading it and will probably read it many more times. If you like action-packed adventures with a satirical twist that will have you snickering, chuckling, and laughing out loud, this book is a good choice. Hank Quense delights in using his well-sharpened pen to let the hot air out of everyone, and sneaks in a few serious thoughts while you're distracted by the funny stuff.

    5. Elizabeth says:

      Charmingly funny retelling of some classics and new fairytales from the mind of Hank Quense. I read this to a group of 7 to 10 year olds who thought these were hysterical. Great read for story times and a nice way to spend a day in the sun!!!

      Imagine for a minute an alternative universe where Terry Pratchett and Monty Python could produce a love child. Now imagine that child had inherited both parents' skill at seeing a situation and sizing it up for satiric treatment but neither parents' talent for executing that satire. If you can hold that idea in your mind, you'll have a pretty good idea of how Tales From Gundarland reads. I have a crusty, old memory of an English teacher telling me to use writing to show, not tell. You probably [...]

      Tales From Gundarland – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat‘The planet was named Gundar after the omniscient god who accidentally created the universe with an explosive sneeze caused by snorting a larger-than-average dose of his favorite recreational powder. The nodules of spittle flew through space and eventually solidified into suns, planets, comets and other celestial bodies. Gundarland is the largest land mass on the planet. Populated by diverse races such as dwarfs [...]

    8. Jennifer Walker says:

      Quense specializes in humor writing, and it's obvious he has a sense of humor that inspired each one of these stories. Whether it's the story of a dwarf named Romeo and his star-crossed lover, an elf named Juliet, or a musical competition where combatitiveness and cuteness are part of the scoring, or a clumsy hero who saves the day despite himself, each story has its own rich cast of characters who take the reader on a fun adventure. While some are inspired by traditional tales, others (as far a [...]

      I won this e-book from LibraryThing Members Giveaways. Tales From Gundarland is pure fantasy. Well known fairytales taken and spun with an added twist. On reading the prologue I thought this sounds good fun and I expected to be plunged into a similar world to Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. These short stories are more comparable to Shrek but for an older audience. Romeo and Juliet was my favourite and had me laughing my head off. I also liked Boggarts Blue about Burga the warrior cook savin [...]

    10. Roberto Mattos says:

      Mr. Quense nails it again. In this new book he comes with 8 stories, one more creative then the other. Hysterical. My favorite is the last one, Tactical Surprise. The end of the story is delicious. I loved it!I have been following this author for a while and having read most of his books I can say that he is a master of satiric humor. You have to read his stories slowly and savor every subtle humor. It will light up your day.His characters are taken from Shakespeare and fairy tale stories and th [...]

      Very enjoyable - like many books, it could use a little proofreading, but the stories are fun and go very quickly. I enjoyed the longer story with the pirate theme - I wish that had somehow been developed into a full novel incorporating some of the other tales, rather than the short story format. But perfect for passing the time during travel, waiting rooms, etc.
