The Very Virile Viking (Viking II #3)
Viking in Wonderland
Magnus Ericsson is a simple man. He loves the smell of fresh-turned dirt after springtime plowing. He loves the feel of a soft woman under him in the bed furs. He loves the heft of a good sword in his fighting arm.
But, Holy Thor, what he does not relish is the bothersome brood of children hes been saddled with. Or the mysterious happenstance that st...more
Anyway, this book stars Magnus who is a viking from the year 999 AD. It seems that he can't help the fact that he is very virile and tends to have a kid every time he has sex. As a result, he has 11 kids. All varying ages and from different women. Well Mangus decides he wants to travel and leave his homeland. So he sets off on a trip with his children.

One thing Hill really has going for her is that she knows how to write kids. So often in books children are written as idealized that they end up flat and indistinguishable. (I mean, kids in romance novels are almost always the product of a single-parent home, but those kids are all so well-adjusted it's a wonder their parents want to get married). But even with eleven children...more

Dilihat dari covernya, ga nyangka deh Viking yang satu ini ayah dari 13 anak (11 masih hidup). Gara-gara terlalu subur dan rempong diganduli banyak anak, ia bersumpah untuk selibat dan membawa sembilan anaknya untuk mencari tanah baru di Vinland, er... Amerika.
Cita-citanya kesampaian sih, tapi kejauhan juga, karena berangkat tahun 998 sampainya di Hollywood tahun 2003.
Luar biasa. Nggak cukup mindahin Viking satu-satu ke masa depan kayak di novel sebelumnya, sekarang langsung 10 orang s...more
This book is very funny. Poor Magnus is Viking from the year 1000. On a trip with 9 of his 11 offspring to find his missing brothers they end up in Holly Wood. It is some time later when he finds out it is no longer the year 1000 but 2003.
He has had many wives, concubines and passing fancies but the minute he sets his eyes on Angela he knows she is his destiny. And she accepts and seems to like his children.
Magnus is a farme...more

Dulu sebenarnya sudah pernah baca, terus nemu edisi sekennya di OS FB, asyik2 ^^Lalu re-read deh... Dan masih saja katawa ngakaks sama seperti pertama kali baca ini *hmpfh*
Menceritakan tentang Magnus Ericsson, seorang Viking yang hidup pada abad ke 11.
Magnus ini sepertinya terlalu vital "anu"nya, sampai - sampai punya anak 11! Mulai dari si cerewet Madrene, putri tertuanya, lalu dua putra tertua yang beda lahir seminggu, Ragnor dan To...more
I mean, it's awesome in its awfulness. So I feel like I should give it one star---like that's what it wants me to do. But I'm not sure, for sure, it's supposed to be awful, so it gets two.
In any case, it entertained the hell out of me, even if for all the wrong reasons.
Magnus is no exception to the confusion only this time he has managed to have 9 kids along with him. His brood brings along their own fun as they learn about things. I also loved how Magnus knew that all the kids weren't hi...more
