The Blurb

Shawn Farquhar, FISM Grand Prix World Champion of Magic, performs and explains in detail an effect that has been used in his show since 2011 when he presented it at the famed 4F convention in New York. This has been described as the “paper balls over the head” of mentalism. It’s the perfect piece for mentalist looking to lighten the mood, magicians wanting to present mentalism and even master of ceremonies wanting to spice up the event with a little audience interaction.

You and a spectator stand back to back while they freely select any page from the book. Then with absolutely no effort you are able to recite word for word any sentences, paragraphs or even a whole page that is selected.

During the entire demonstration the audience see just how the “magic” works. Once revealed to the volunteer you will stun everyone by showing them the solution they thought was being used… isn’t it at all.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
There really isn’t a description of the effect, but it’s one in which the audience thinks they’re let in on the secret to a book test and are duped later when it’s revealed the method they were led to believe was being used couldn’t have been.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
You do need to be wearing a coat to perform this and it should have enough pocket space to hold a thin paperback book.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Parlour, Stage

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This is a brilliantly entertaining piece of mentalism with a strong component of comedy.  This may not be your style, but, if so, despite some minor gripes about the book’s production values, this is definitely recommended.
