Witch and Wizard (Witch & Wizard #1)
EVERYTHING. CHANGES. NOW.
Imagine you wake up and the world around you-life as you know it-has changed in an instant. That's what has happened to Whit Allgood and his sister, Whisty. They went to sleep as normal teenagers, and woke up as wanted criminals. Accused of holding incredible powers they'd never dreamed possible. And now, just how different they are-special, even-i...more
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. I LOVE the Alex Cross series. I started getting a bit disenchanted after reading The Beach House, one of the first books he co-authored. The next book- I can't even recall the title because I didn't...more
The plot of this story had great potential, but the way it was executed made it hard for me to enjoy this book. I felt as though it was trying to be HP so much that it, quite frankly sucked...more
Yeah. When my sister read this book, she was like, 'I don't like it' and that just sort of discouraged me from reading this book any sooner. And I don't know what made me decide that it was about time to read it today, but oh boy! I do NOT regret that decision.
This was a really fun and exciting read.
So, basically. The title speaks for the whole book. Witch and Wizard.

I thoroughly enjoyed James Patterson's first few books of his Maximum Ride trilogy - his style of writing is one I don't admire, but the plot and characters made up for it. In this case, however, I feel like the weak writing, somewhat flat characters, and just plain weird plot mix together to form one giant mess of a book.
Where Patterson Made His Mistakes:
- He referenced Maximum Ride when one of his characters mentions the impossibility of kids with wings
- The tone of his writing...more
I hated practically everything about this novel. The characters were so off; Whit and Whisty were too close of names anyway, and it just became confusing. Switching between the two characters didn't have the desired effect I know Patterson had been going for. I found the two annoying.
Also, I felt it was too scatered. There wasn't enough information about what was happening at that moment, it changed too quickly.
The attempt at placin...more
The premise was good, the story itself okay. I mean, they spent like 150 pages just being taken to prison. And then like 100 attacking a prison. So there it seemed a bit slow. Nothing much really happened. I could probably summarize the book in a few sentences.
Also, I don't really like characters who "come back" when you never knew them in the firs...more
The problem I had was that almost every "bad guy" that they encounter screams at them. The judge screams at them, the jailkeeper screams at them. While I don't have a problem with a couple psychotic spittle flecking people screaming at the main characters, I just had a huge...more
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 it sadly the opposite.
I was very, very disappointed in J.P., especially since this is the first book I've read by him. Not a great first impression, sorry to say. I know he's got some other popu...more
I went into this book with no real expectations. I have only read one other James Patterson book, and I had not read any reviews. All I had to go by was the book’s summary (and cool big flaming “W” cover) and it really hooked me.
The New Order was nothing short of pure evil. It set the tone for how utterly depressing life was for the kids in the story. My gosh it would be awful if this were all true.
The main characters, brother and sister duo Whit and Wisty, got a real surprise when they...more

The book was extremely fast-paced with short chapters, unlike many of the bad fantasy novels I review. Four or five Kindle screens is long for a chapter in this book. You would expect to get whiplash from all the viewpoint changes between the leads, but another reviewer was right in descri...more
I've only read 1 or 2 James Patterson novels but a friend loaned me the book and I thought I would give it a try. I counseled the goodreads community and went in with low expectations given the online reviews.
Even low expectations were not enough... I had a number of issues with this book. First off the names of the main characters: Whit and Wisty - who would name their children names that seem so much alike. That was confusing from the ge...more
let me preface my review by saying this is not, in my opinion, a comparison to Harry Potter. It is certainly and adventu...more
-Action. The story just started right out with the action, and it didn’t take too long to catch us up to speed. There weren’t chapters of useless back story to get the ball rolling, and I like that in stories. I dislike reading about a day’s worth of mundane tasks over and over again. This was the only decent thing about the story though.
What I disliked:
-Writing style. James Patterson has a very simple writing style, and normally I like simple writing styles because it isn’t bogged...more
