Book Review: Witch and Wizard by James Patterson

Witch and Wizard

Author:James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

Series:Witch and Wizard

Publisher:Little, Brown and Company

Own it :3 From BEA

It's overwhelming. A city's worth of angry faces staring up at me like I'm a wicked criminal. The stadium is filled past capacity. Hundred of thousands of curious, uncaring, or at leats indifferent, faces...

And there are no moist eyes, much less tears.
No words of protest.
No stomping feet.
No fists raised in solidarity.
In fact, as the countdown timer flashes onto the giant video screens, it's looking to be my family's last day.

I see my brother, Whit, wondering if there's some last-minute way out of this. I see my mother crying quietly for Whit and me. I see my father, stopped with resignation, but smiling at me and my brother- trying to remind us that there's no point being miserable in our last moments on this planet.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. There's a lot to cover before we get to the details of our public execution.

So let's go back a bit...

I love James Patterson's books. I read most of the ones he wrote for young adult and they are pretty enjoyable. I'm sure lots of people agree. Witch and Wizard is new. In the sense that, he never wrote about magic like this before and incorporated a lot of imagination. I started out not really understanding, but I caught on quickly. The story starts with a current situation, but the narrators, both the witch, Wisty and wizard, Whit, tell the story from the beginning. It's a easy read, i finished in a few hours. I liked it, short and sweet, the characters were down to earth. And I liked the idea of kids being the saviors to the world. I also found "The One" stuff pretty hilarious.

Overall I give this book and 6.5/10. Its a pretty enjoyable read. Between Witch and Wizard and Maximum Ride. I'll definitely pick Max though, just because I love the flock so darn much ^-^
