So You Want to Be a Wizard (digest): Young Wizards, Book One

So You Want to Be a Wizard  - Diane Duane The book reminded me a lot of A Wrinkle in Time. There was a lot of ‘science’ in the book. I was surprised at how dense in made the reading. I had a really hard time getting past the fantasy of the book. It’s not that it was bad because it wasn’t at all. It just wasn’t my type of magic or fantasy so I had a hard time getting into the book.I do have to say that getting a new perspective on magic was interesting though. Instead of waving a wand and saying a few magic words, you have to ‘translate’ what you want to happen from the Speech (?) and you have balance your equations. (See what I mean by ‘science’?)The bottom line? It was an interesting read but I probably won’t be picking up the next book any time soon. If you adored A Wrinkle in Time and that type of fantasy, you’d most likely enjoy this!
