Reviews: Witch And Wizard

Plot holes be damned, this series is too awesome to pass over.

James Patterson's Witch And Wizard series (formerly a trilogy in the same way that Maximum Ride was formerly a trilogy) is full of implausibilities and plot holes and weird dialogue.

But then again, so is Adventure Time. And like Adventure Time, this series is just plain awesome.

Clearly people who hate this series haven't been reading it properly. It's quite clearly established that this isn't supposed to be our world, or even our universe. Once that comes into play, any and all rules of physics and other sciences may be suspended at will, along with the reader's disbelief, hopefully. I really don't understand why people read these books expecting something "realistic." Just like, say, Revolution, if you expect everything to be realistic, you're only setting yourself up for disappointment.

Especially in the sequels, it gets really good. And really dark, too. Don't try and read The Fire after eating a heavy meal. You may get sick. Violently so.

I can\'t stand it...

This book series suffers from inconsistent writing, inconsistent tone, and a serious lack of direction. It wants to be a dark dystopia, but the dialogue and prose is goofy and quirky. Major events from previous books are usually forgotten by the next one in order to maintain the status quo. It's difficult to keep up with and Patterson can do a lot better.
