Resenhas

It's a YA (or younger, actually) fantasy about a girl who discovers a book titled So You Want to Be a Wizard while hiding from bullies in a library. It was OK, but I did not think it had much to offer to adult readers. It's reasonably charming but there's much action and too little character development, and therefore the characters were not as engaging as they might have been. It lacks that universal appeal that made Harry Potter work for readers of all ages, but I think the target audience will enjoy this one.… (mais)
