    2.0 stars I did NOT like this book The plot was derivative, the writing was passable AT BEST and the two teenage main characters annoyed me to the point of causing actual hair loss However, the book avoided the 1 star noose based solely on some crafty ideas and oh so unused potential that I will explore once I briefly explain the plotwhich should not take long as we have all seen this tired old movie before.BRIEF TIRED OLD PLOT SUMMARY Sophia and Josh two VERYannoying kids work 2.0 stars I did NOT like this book The plot was derivative, the writing was passable AT BEST and the two teenage main characters annoyed me to the point of causing actual hair loss However, the book avoided the 1 star noose based solely on some crafty ideas and oh so unused potential that I will explore once I briefly explain the plotwhich should not take long as we have all seen this tired old movie before.BRIEF TIRED OLD PLOT SUMMARY Sophia and Josh two VERYannoying kids work at a book store for a mysterious guy named Nick Based on the title of the novel, I don t think I m giving up state secrets by telling you that old Nicky is really the immortal Alchemyst Nicholas Flamel NOTE TO AUTHOR spelling Alchemyst with a y was really clever and not at all gimmicky or ham handed Well, Nick or should I be all hipster and call him Nyck has a very important book called the Codex that he has been safeguarding for many centuries until a bad guy, with a bunch of otherworldly baddies find Nick and steal the Codex from him From there begins your oh my God not again, please not again, i have read this before a hundred times and don t want to see it again or i may do something terrible to myself typical plot of a explain the kindly gentlemen is really an immortal alchemist, b provide info dump on background of world, c kids discover their special but special don t cure annoying laddies , d kids must find main bad guy or else will die, e fight some monsters, f kids seem to be wickedly smart and yet at times say some of the DUMBEST things imaginable f group gets split up, g think hope is lost, h oh not quite yet, we have ONE chance, ipowerful monsters show up j powerful good guy protectors show up and join the quest, and finally k a big, special effects laden climax and a nice tidy ending with the plot wrapped up but with the basis for the next story introduced HUH THE BOOK JUST STOPS OUT OF THE BLUE SO WHY 2 STARS Despite my general annoyance with the plot and the characters, I ended up deciding to give the book 2 stars rather than 1 because I REALLY LOVED THE WORLDBUILDING CONCEPT behind the book What I mean is that the world created by Michael Scott was filled with some serious mega potential and felt unique and daisy fresh, despite his best efforts to muck it up Now before anyone goes all Charlie Sheen on me screaming that Scott simply borrowed pieces of dozens, if not hundreds, of different stories and mashed them together, let me say that I would NOT disagree with that assessment at all Calm down and take a valium My point is that by bringing together so many different threads and assembling them as part of a unified world view, the end result was something that began to feel fresh and if, not unique, at least not old and worn It was that whole sum greater than parts thing.For Example.minor spoiler about the world building aspects to follow view spoiler I loved the idea of a world existing before the dawn of human history I also loved the concept of the Lovecraftian Elder Gods and the timing of their retrenchment at the beginning of the Iron Age I loved the idea that all mythical and supernatural creatures of legend are descended from this elder race and that their histories can all be traced back to a common origin I liked that there are good and bad elder gods as that allows powerful alliances to be formed in later books Finally, I like the concept of the immortality of humans like Flamel allowing historical figures from the past to be able to play a part in later books as I believe Machiavelli does in the next volume hide spoiler For me, all of the above world building aspects give Scott a treasure trove of material to draw from in order to be able to create a story that could be truly funtastical However, nothing will save the series if the negatives outlined above are not addressed in later books I just hope that Scott can do a better job of minimizing the short comings of this story and expanding on the clever world he has envisioned For what it s worth, I also hope that Chuck Norris kicks the smarmy off Justin Bieber s face, but that is another conversation

    Okay I liked this book a lotthan most people who have written reviews I feel that it s because I didn t go into it with many preconceived notions I had hoped it would be related to Harry Potter, but when I realized it wasn t I moved on I also didn t read the book because I was a huge fan of the real Flamel If you read it for either of those reasons, you will most likely be disapointed.15 year old twins Sophie and Josh have gotten summer jobs in San Franciso Josh works at a bookstore, Okay I liked this book a lotthan most people who have written reviews I feel that it s because I didn t go into it with many preconceived notions I had hoped it would be related to Harry Potter, but when I realized it wasn t I moved on I also didn t read the book because I was a huge fan of the real Flamel If you read it for either of those reasons, you will most likely be disapointed.15 year old twins Sophie and Josh have gotten summer jobs in San Franciso Josh works at a bookstore, and Sophie works across the street One day, a group of evil men come to attack Josh s boss, and it ends up that they are headed by the evil John Dee, Elizabeth I s spy, and that Josh s boss is none other than the immortal Nicholas Flamel Before flattening the bookstore completely, John Dee and his henchmen steal a very old book, except for the last 2 pages, which Josh has a tight hold on It ends up that the book is the secret to Nicholas Flamel s long LONG life, and that the last 2 pages are key, so now Josh s life is in danger, and Nicholas Flamel is aging before his eyes Josh, Sophie, and Flamel flee the city, with Dee in pursuit, but they soon learn that there isto the 2 of them, Josh and Sophie, than they have ever realized, that they are special, and perhaps Flamel is not being completely honest about his reasons for wanting them to accompany him on his journey.I felt a little confused why Nicholas Flamel couldn t make another stone, or whatever, to extend his life without the book that Dee took You would think that he would have the method down pat during the last 600 so years.The book does something different with magic that I d never read before, which is link it to the 5 senses According to the book, the reason that the average person cannot do magic is because their senses are dulled, and when the magic starts happening, there are an amazing number of smells described I did think the book did something dangerous, because it tied itself way too much to the present ipod, wikipedia, Shrek, the new Spiderman All of that is really going to date it in time It did make good historical references, linking the story to events that happened in the past, like the potato famine, and the great fire in London That somehow made the events in the storybelievable and immediate I also learned from the book, because the characters in it are ones I never have heard of before, like the Morrigan It was cool that he worked, somewhat, with characters who already exist I bet it would be easier to make them all up, but it was cool to see how they would all interact if they were together.Like Into the Woods, which I just reviewed, I think this book would make a really excellent movie, and in fact, some of the scenes would play out better in a movie than they did in the book I would definitely see it There is a sequel, which is coming out soon, and I m going to read it The ending leaves you with a cliffhanger, so I m glad I didn t read it when there was a long wait til the next book

    This book was awful So awful, it warrants me actually putting in a review.First of all, there isn t enough Nicholas Flamel There is far too much of the twins that kind of become Nic s apprentices, and attatches way too much teenage exposition to them And we don t need the two of them mentioning that their parents are archaeologists every other page We got it the first time Move on And even if their parents are archaeologists, they re not necessarily going to know as much about it as they s This book was awful So awful, it warrants me actually putting in a review.First of all, there isn t enough Nicholas Flamel There is far too much of the twins that kind of become Nic s apprentices, and attatches way too much teenage exposition to them And we don t need the two of them mentioning that their parents are archaeologists every other page We got it the first time Move on And even if their parents are archaeologists, they re not necessarily going to know as much about it as they seem too When you re 15, you try to stay away from your parents as much as possible And there seriously didn t need to be as much name dropping around the character of Josh I swear to God, whenever the story was from his perspective, there was always a name dropped of a movie or a video game, and there was always mention of his laptop, his cell phone, and that he had been on the football team And the repetition of the name dropping, or them mentioning their parent s profession, was enough to make you put a gun barrel in your mouth It felt way too forced Too much like he was trying to be all, Look I m one of you He turned a potentially kick ass 2 1 2 thousand year old vampire into a lame teenager Not a cool one, something you might have imagined Bill and Charlie Weasly being No, she was lame and just happened to be able to kick ass cuz she was a vampire.And some of the other gods could ve been completely awesome like Morr gan but they came off kind of lame, without any real power, and seemingly easily manipulated.Scott really could ve done something awesome with this, if he had decided to do a kick ass Sword Sorcery story a la Highlander The Series Instead, it feltlike a teenager s attempt at High Fantasy cough Eldest Inheritance, Book 2 cough , and not a very good one at that And seriously, mentioning LotR at the beginning of your book, does not a High Fantasy make Nor does having something that s the equivalent of the Force, a good fantasy make

    Quick review on this one Oh how this book conflicted me so On the one hand, I really enjoyed the story and the characters but ultimately the shoe horning of SO MANY historical events and figures into the story just curbed my enjoyment of it I get what the author was trying to do Flamel was a real person who supposedly discovered the secret to immortality but the cramming in of all of the historical figures that he encountered along the way as well as the significant historical events just ki Quick review on this one Oh how this book conflicted me so On the one hand, I really enjoyed the story and the characters but ultimately the shoe horning of SO MANY historical events and figures into the story just curbed my enjoyment of it I get what the author was trying to do Flamel was a real person who supposedly discovered the secret to immortality but the cramming in of all of the historical figures that he encountered along the way as well as the significant historical events just killed it Could have been so much better but as it isjust average

    I enjoyed The Alchemystthan I thought I would It didn t sweep me away with the must finish this book now feeling, but I also was never bored Fans of Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson books, and even The Da Vinci Code will find interesting connections and similarities here And yet Scott manages to bring something just a bit new to the table as well I was interested to learn that many of the main characters Nicholas Flamel, Perenelle Flamel, and Dr John Dee were I enjoyed The Alchemystthan I thought I would It didn t sweep me away with the must finish this book now feeling, but I also was never bored Fans of Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson books, and even The Da Vinci Code will find interesting connections and similarities here And yet Scott manages to bring something just a bit new to the table as well I was interested to learn that many of the main characters Nicholas Flamel, Perenelle Flamel, and Dr John Dee were actually real people and much of what is told as their back story is actually known about them Other characters in the book come from mythology and folklore Only the twins, Josh and Sophie Newman, are the author s own creation I was also interested in the use of modern gadgets, especially in the beginning Mostly the modern gadgets such as an iPod, texting on a cell phone, and googling for information via a laptop are used to give background information to the reader while showing that these kids are modern teens although at one point even one of the Elders uses a cell phone As the story progresses, though, the gadgets are left behind.I wouldn t rank this as one of my all time favorite fantasy stories even if I m just limiting to books I ve read this year But I did enjoy it and will certainly read the sequels as I get a chance If we had half stars, I would give this 3.5
