Ce livre est la transition parfaite entre la saga Harry Potter et la trilogie des Magiciens. [...] En plus de tout ça, on trouve, en vrac : des références culturelles géniales, l'utilisation de la technologie par les sorciers, une guerre inter-espèces, la lutte contre le sexisme, des super-héros discrets, quelques insultes bien envoyées [...] un roman one-shot à lire absolument pour tous ceux qui aiment la magie, les histoires de grands ados (les héros sont majeurs) et, ok, les histoires d'amour un peu.
Ever since Maurice Richard dazzled hockey fans, fighting his way to hockey's summits, the issue of discrimination against Quebec hockey players has simmered on. NHL veteran Bob Sirois now demonstrates that unless Quebec hockey players are superstars they are less likely to be drafted than other players in Canada. They can also expect shorter careers and less pay, while some teams just don't want them. Using statistics covering nearly 40 years, Sirois shatters those tenacious myths such as "Quebecers are smaller, " "they play poor defensive hockey" or "they are the best goalies." His solutions: an NHL team for Quebec City and a Quebec national junior team for international events. Our great sport stands to gain from Bob Sirois' search for the truth.
Bob Sirois played for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals, earning 212 points in 286 NHL games. He represented the Washington Capitals in the 1978 All Star Game. Forced to retire early by a severe back injury, he has remained active in hockey as an agent and president of Montreal's Roadrunners. Bob Sirois lives in Montreal.
