The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #1)

The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #1) - -I’ve wanted to read this book for quite a while.-It has all the elements that I enjoy: adventure, mixing mythologies and history, stories aren’t just stories.-I think the problem was the story was too ambitious. There were SO many different mythologies the story was trying to use. It made my head hurt.-Maybe I’ve just read too many of these type stories lately but ugh the story and the plot were SO recycled. I’ve heard this story too many times.-The story wasn’t bad per se but it was just dry and boring.-I read a good portion of the story and still couldn’t get into it so I stopped. No sense in reading a book that I’m not enjoying.
