    1 thought on “Forbidden Magic

    1. Mi aspettavo di meglio.Mi aspettavo un libro profondo e complesso, e invece ho trovato un'avventuretta neanche troppo brillante. Ho faticato a mantenere l'attenzione concentrata sul racconto per praticamente tutta la durata del libro, e il prurito alle mani per la voglia di vedere come andava a finire non l'ho mai sentita. Ho anche trovato "non adatta" la traduzione di Voglino, è troppo forbita, troppo impegnataoppo. Ci sono parti carine, ma anche i personaggi sono un po' superficiali, stereoti [...]

    2. This is a slow read. The chapters are all 25 pages, give or take a page. That's a really long chapter, and when you know that's how long the next chapter is going to be, you wait until you have time to read the whole thing before opening the book up again. On top of that, Wells did this weird thing where he screwed up grammar in an effort to sound old-fashioned and fantastical, especially in the beginning of the book. In a list, he'd remove the "and" before the final item, whether it was a list [...]

    3. Forbidden Magic is a fast-paced fantasy tale with a lot of magic and sword fighting. The characters are well developed and the book reads well. It is a grim world on the brink of war, and a young man finally opens his eyes and sees the world as it really is. There is a map in the front of the book, something I always enjoy, and the main characters are always on the move. If you like the writings of the Terry Brooks and the Shannara series, or David Eddings and the Belgariad series, you will love [...]

    4. Weaknesses: One-dimensional, stereotypical characters, unrealistic story, primitive dialogs and language, little creativity (fantasy by the numbers).Strengths: Straight-forward fantasy with clear-cut villains and heros and lots of action, might be enjoyable for undiscerning (young) readers.

    5. I felt like this book was shallow in its plot, and the character development was not very well done. It just wasn't a very well written book. The adventures failed to keep my interest nearly as much as other fantasy books I've read.

    6. I liked it in high school. that is not necessarily an insult; I think the foreshadowing of plot twists and the interrogation of loyalty in an enjoyable setting were very useful in the development of my reading. they are no longer useful in the development of my reading.

    7. It's kind of a cliché-based all-too-typical fantasy novel. But if you don't crave anything too complicated and just want some light reading, I guess it's nice enough :)
