Alright! It’s another week, and that means that it is time for yet another book blog. In this weeks edition, as I mentioned last week, I blog about three types of books, and this week it’s going to be a “Bad” one. So on that note, allow me to introduce this weeks book: “ So You Want to be a Wizard” (Already it sounds just a bit too cliché)
This “Bad” book is by the author Diane Duane, who as records show (aka Wikipidia) has written very few other books that aren’t in someway connected to this one. I guess she just couldn’t bare to let this “Bad” Book go. “So you Want to be a Wizard”, takes place on the modern day world, it’s just mixed in with some very old ideas and a questionable writing style. The main character in this book, or rather, main characters, are named Kit, and Nita. Nita being the predominant one. As the title would insinuate, the book is about someone who would like to become a wizard, in this case it is two people. And those two people are Kit and Nita. The Book although having an interesting plot, had, I found, to much “Jibber Jabber”, or as Mr. Healy would say “waffling”, and did not get to the point quick enough.
It ended up being too, not quite complicated, so much as thick, when it came to getting the point across, which, may I add Duane could only accomplish in Just over 360 pages. Finally… I must admit, I stopped short of the end, simply because I could not bare to waste another moment of my time reading this book that I did not find at all interesting. This is the case with most books, if I don’t like them I don’t read them!
Alright… I think that is enough for this week, but be prepared, for come next week you shall discover the meaning of the word “UGLY”. (in relation to books of course) Hint: it’s By Paolini.
