Engaging story, sometimes crippled by repetition

The series "The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" is probably the next Harry Potter. Taking historical characters, Michael Scott writes an interesting story of two twins, Josh and Sophie, who take different paths as predicted by Abraham the Mage, the writer of a codex that contains all the secrets of the world. If you expect historical accuracy, then this book might irritate you, especially Scott's knowledge of early human history (Sumerian and Greek history falls short. I also don't know what to think about the witch of Endor. Scott may use historical figures, but definitely not in character as discribed in early sources.) However, if you are ready for an interesting adventure with some New Age/ eastern religious concepts binding fun, adventure and expectation together, you might just like this series. One thing I find irritating of Scott's writing style is his repetition of certain ideas almost ad infinitum, as if someone is going to jump in at the last book and not listen or read the others, or as if you are putting the book aside to read for two or three years, just to pick is up and read it again. I am not sure if young people has such a short memory span, though I think that might be an insult. Yet, when you travel with Josh and Sophie up to this point where even their aunt doesn't seem to be who she was all along and time travel brings a new dimension to the story, you would be interested in how it is going to end. I recommend this book for its fun and adventure but not for its historicity and sometimes sloppish writing.

- Jacobus "When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else."

A good and bad report...

This series is interesting and fun. The writing skill of the author is unquestioned and the narrator was superb, but when does this saga end? I've invested in 5 books and there is no conclusion to the story in sight. It's time to stop milking this "cash cow" and move on. I'm finished! Enough, already!
