Witch And Wizard Book Review

Witch And Wizard
By: James Patterson
***** five star

Ok, you might start to think that all I read is James Patterson, if that's all I review, but I can't help it! His books are so good! Anyway, Witch And Wizard was awesome!!! It was just as good as Harry Potter, but better! (In my opinion, sorry if I am insulting those Harry Potter fans out there) But Witch and Wizard just might be the next series that will make you go nuts. One of the reasons I didn't exactly finish the whole Harry Potter series was because I got scared. I started to think that the snake from the Chamber Of Secrets was under my bed, the dementors hid in my closet, and Voldemort in my toilet. Yes, Voldimort was in my toilet. Imagine, you get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.... Then all of a sudden Voldimort's bald nearly noseless head suddenly pops out of your toilet and cackles at you. A very scary picture if you think about it. One of the things that I like about Witch and Wizard, is that there is nothing horrifyingly scary in it, except for the lost ones...

 Witch and Wizard was amazing, James Patterson really worked his tail of on this book (there is going to be a sequel). He put lots of dialogue in this story that made me laugh out loud, which I don't usually tend to do when I am reading a book. He left no confusions, and nothing that didn't add up, everything fit precisely. His characters were portrayed beautifully. One of the things that impressed me the most was timing, he would hit you with an event that you never saw coming, and in some way, he would manage to slip in the scene at exactly the right time, so that it would leave you shocked. His topic was a very common one, you know kids find out they have magical powers same old, same old. But he found some way to make it seem like the whole outline was completely new and not all used up like it should be. He did the same trick with his other series called Maximum Ride. In this book, my favorite character was Wisty, she was immediately reflected to me as an outgoing, feisty person who was never afraid to say her mind. The only thing in this book, that confused me was, with every chapter, he would switch from Wisty's perspective, to Whit's (he's the other main character). It started to mix me up after a while, because I would get so engrossed in one chapter, that when they suddenly switched over, it would mix me up until I realized we were switched to the other main characters perspective. It didn't help when they were completely in two different places at the same time. But it was worth it, and every other awesome part of the book made up for it. So if you liked Harry Potter, than you will LOVE Witch and Wizard. Check out for more details.
