Once you've read it, you can Mystic Meg it.

AdvantagesAn entertaining read, snippets for easy reading, broaden you knowledge

DisadvantagesA selective audience

"~~ Take A Break's Fate & Fortune ~~ I have recently stopped buying all my weekly magazines and I just keep to my regular monthly ones, mainly because I was just not getting the time to read them all. I chose this one because I love spooky stories and reading about anything spiritual. So, enough of my waffle lets get down to business of the magazine. The one I have in front of me is the July 2006 issue; the majority of the format is the same on ..." Read review

Is life really written in the stars?

Advantagesbright and colourful, well presented, lots of varied articles, 7 pages of horoscopes

Disadvantagespoor journalism, not believeable, lots of adverts, puzzles are easy to complete

"I can take or leave celebrity magazines, I have never really got excited about the latest copy of Heat or Hello magazine, but the one thing I do love, merely for cheap laughs is Fate and Fortune which is a spin off to Take a Break. My mum buys Take a Break magazine and we usually argue over whom is going to do all of the puzzles first when I go around for dinner so when she stopped buying it I was hoping to find something else to keep me amused. I ..." Read review

Give me a break!

Advantagesgave me a good laugh.

Disadvantagesimpossible to believe 99% of whats in it.

"...avid reader of the original take a break magazine or this spin off from it (take a breaks fate and fortune) so in order to write this review I have done plenty research, a fair bit of first time reading of this mag and I have also taken a lot of very good advice from my fiancée who cant get enough of these types of magazines, so here goes! The original take a break magazine has many features in it and one thing I have to give it great credit for ..." Read review

Discover your Fate and Fortune with Take A Break.

AdvantagesA pleasant change to the usual magazines.

DisadvantagesHow do we know any of it's real?

"...options I'll sometimes pick up Take A Break Fate & Fortune for a little something different. It's certainly not a magazine for everybody, in fact for some it contains many subjects they may disapprove of such as mediumship(talking with the dead) Psychics and magic. While I am skeptical of the existence of such abilities I find it fascinating to read about and I'm sure we'd all like to hope that there is some form of afterlife where we can see our ..."

Is there anybody there?

Advantages A different fun magazine

Disadvantages Adverts

"...colourful and has the usual take a break layout with the usual pretty girl why I don't know but there she is! It also states the month the one in front of me is May 2007 but the whole layout inside and outside is usually the same. The price is also quite prominent and is £1.60 and then lots of headlines advertising the different stories and articles inside the mag. YOUR LETTERS ----------------------- Firstly you get your letters where people ..." Read review

I need a break

AdvantagesEntertaining and often amusing

DisadvantagesIs it for real?

"Take a break This is one of those magazines I picked up a while ago, in error- I merely saw “Take a Break” and thought it was the original magazine by that name. needless to say, it’s quite different, although being a spin off of the original magazine, this does promise to deal with true life stories. I was never especially convinced by the original, but continued to give this a go. A few readings on, mainly when I need light and not overly ..." Read review

Quick review of Take A Break's Fate & Fortune

"I was recently given a reading and it will be appearing in the July issue. I was very pleased with the reading and animals from my past came through with messages. One thing puzzled me and that was the black and white collie. I later remembered that a good friend lost her old dog last year and guess what breed and colour he was. I still hear my little Zac and i feel him around me often. The guilt that i felt was replaced with even more love for my little terror. Thanks to everyone whgo works on this fab mag and i will continue to be a avid reader.

Take a Break - Make it a Long one.

AdvantagesEvents diary, Monthly in depth horoscopes

DisadvantagesOnly issued monthly.

"Being interested in this sort of stuff I regularly buy this magazine. The real life stories are mostly enjoyable if not sometimes a little far fetched by any circumstance. Each month ex-detective and psychic Kevin Wade investigates an unsolved mystery from years ago, for example what happened to Lord Lucan, and various unsolved murders and suspicious deaths. There are usually plenty of articles relating to spellworking which are ideal for beginners ..." Read review

Take a Break Fate & Fortune

Advantageslight hearted professing to be serious

DisadvantagesGullible people might believe all they read and take it too seriously

"...Every week I buy Take a Break to continue the mental exercise. Now, I know they are not exactly Mensa level, but that is OK, because I try to time myself on every puzzle. This gives me a bit more mental workout. So having attended to the serious stuff in the news and the mental exercise with TaB, I sometimes buy Fate & Fortune. You cannot take something like this seriously, and I think that is what the critics do. Just see it as light entertainment ..." Read review
