So You Want To Be A Wizard? By Diane Duane
« on: October 14, 2010, 06:19:09 pm »
One of my favorite books, I found it in 5th grade; it was a little too advanced for me at the time ^^;

It's about two new Wizards, Nita and Kit, who find books titled "So you want to be a Wizard?" with all the equations and information about a wizard is; stopping the universe from dying faster. Nita and Kit just want to be stopped being bullied on (and get Nita's space pen back), so they make a protective aura spell and summon something else with it...

The characters are extraordinary, the plot and following the change in scenery can become a little confusing at times (but hey it's magic), and the explanation behind the magic can be a little confusing too.  I had to reread it to get all the details XD.

I give it a 9/10, because once you understand what's happening it's truly stunning.
rawr! ^_^

Oh hang on, I've read this! 8D
Took me long enough to find this thread.

Yeah, that was a good book. I read it a while ago, so the details are kind of fuzzy in my mind, but I remember liking it. The characters were awesome, it was funny, and yeah. It's true, though, that one had to reread it to get all the details... it was a bit befuddling at times. I'd give it a 4/5.

I've only started reading the first, the characters seem well-written.
