The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic had really great editorial reviews. But after reading this book, I wonder if anyone actually read the entire thing. The story was interesting but the over-all book lacked magic, pun intended. Basically it is a story about a grad student who gets lost in ‘another’ world while on a walk in the mountains. This begins Nora Fischer’s grand adventure into a world that is full of magic, kings, lords, knights, castles, etc.
The book is broken up into 4 parts. Part One, I could not put down. I was reading well into the middle of the night. Heck, I could not read fast enough, I needed to know what would happen next. But when I started Part Two, I was like wait, what just happened here? Why did this become so dull and boring?!? Book Three and Four were ‘better’ but really there was so much that could have been cut out. It just went on and on and on and then it ended with a cliffhanger.
I’m sorry that I spent money on this book, it was not worth it. I should have just borrowed it from the library.
