Whit e sua sorella Wisty sono due ragazzi come tanti, due fratelli normali che hanno sempre rispettato le regole imposte dal Nuovo Ordine, il regime autoritario che, dopo aver abrogato le leggi democratiche, ha istituito una ferrea censura su qualsiasi forma di espressione: musica, film, libri, arte, televisione… Eppure, una notte, la loro esistenza viene sconvolta da un avvenimento incredibile. Le guardie del governo irrompono nella loro casa e li accusano di un reato gravissimo, punibile addirittura con l’impiccagione: stregoneria. Ma ciò che sconcerta di più i ragazzi è la reazione dei genitori. Invece di protestare per quell’assurdità, infatti, consegnano ai figli due strani oggetti: una bacchetta da batteria a Wisty, che non ha mai suonato in vita sua, e un libro dalle pagine completamente bianche a Whit.
Solo molti giorni dopo, rinchiusi nel braccio della morte, i due fratelli capiscono l’importanza di quei doni. Giocherellando con la bacchetta, Wisty scopre di possedere davvero dei poteri magici, mentre Whit, a poco a poco, riesce a far apparire le parole scritte nel libro. Perché quel volume, in realtà, è un manuale di magia, un manuale che potrebbe aiutare Whit e Wisty a evadere di prigione e a liberare il mondo dal giogo del Nuovo Ordine…

I've never really been a big fan of James Patterson. After Reading "Angel Experiment" and "Daniel X" I had pretty much given up on this guy. Although, I had heard some amazing things about his new book "Witch & Wizard" so I thought 'What the heck' and so I picked it up and read it. BLEH!!! I honestl Leggi tutto
My thoughts: I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I'm so glad I waited to get it from my local library rather than buying it at the book store. If I had spent my own money on it...well, it would have been even a bigger disappointment than it was. I'm a big fan of James Patterson's adult books Leggi tutto
This is the first book that I've read and that I couldn't finish without skimming over most of it. The writing was so, so bad, the characters were so stupid and made all the wrong decision and the dialogue was so cheesy. I've been searching for at least one thing that I liked about the book, but I f Leggi tutto
They're afraid of change, and we must change. They're afraid of the young, and we are the young. They're afraid of music, and music is our life. They're afraid of books, and knowledge, and ideas. They're most afraid of our magic. You know what I'm afraid? I'm afraid that this book is actually a best- Leggi tutto
Ugh. Everything about this book was cliche and annoying: the characters, the dialogue, the plot...Nothing was well developed at all. It was just a big fat mess. When J.P. tried to be funny, I found it irritating, when he tried to be clever, I found it stupid, and when he tried to be original, I found Leggi tutto
Let me first start off by saying that I don’t mean to offend anyone who loves this book (because there seems to be a ridiculously large amount), but I H-A-T-E-D hated this book! It was so terrible, I don’t understand how people can possibly even come close to liking it. I’ll start with the main cha Leggi tutto
I rarely refuse to continue reading a book I have started, but I just refused to finish this one...I was very interested in reading this book after seeing it described as being a new series for Harry Potter fans...which, as it turns out, is extremely misleading!! I think there were good ideas for a
What is worse than a flat, static main character? TWO flat, static main characters. To take it one, horrible step further, have these characters narrate their own story in short, choppy chapters. This book seems almost like a first draft or maybe even a detailed outline for the idea of a book. There Leggi tutto
This book had me laughing right from the start and not because of anything James Patterson had written. No, not at all. My local library, bless them, has a tendency to mis-classify book genres and had placed this book in the Thriller section, along with some of Patterson's other Thriller style books Leggi tutto
This book is about these two kids Whit, and Wisty that are taken away from their home in the middle of the night and accused of being a witch and a wizard. Its all because of the New Order thats run by this man called The One Who Is The One, who is trying to rid the world of all magic. I think that
