Physik



So... I just finished the last book by Angie Sage, Physik.






The best part is: I'm sorry it's over and I hope she writes more to this series containing Septimus Heap! (I enjoyed it that much)


The worst part is: In the beginning, she took me by surprise because I expected book three to tell me what happened to a major character, who was good.. gone bad. That didn't happen. (except in a blurb at the end of her books where she writes a few pages of: what happened to...)


All through the book I expected this character to show up so I would learn what happened to him but it was not to be... leaving me with the feeling that there should be another installment. I searched the web to see if indeed she was writing another Septimus Heap book, but I could find nothing.


I did enjoy book three as much as the others but it bothered me that I never really learned more about this one character: Simon Heap.


In book 3 she introduced some new characters and of course a set of new problems and it read very well. I don't want to give anything away but I would definitely recommend these books for young adults and for those of us just wanting something easy and enjoyable to read.


Reading level: Ages 9-12 (In my opinion: All Ages!)

Before I go I want to direct anyone who reads a lot to Sandra Ruttan: On Life and Other Inconveniences blog. She wrote a great post about reading: or the lack of. It's a good read, so hop over and check it o ut and leave a comment if it strikes a nerve.


Also,.. I finally finished writing my list of all the books I own! I've been wanting to list my books for a long time and I finally did it! (though it was a reminder of moving from CA and having to sell some that I would rather not have) It can be found here. I just ordered more books so those will be added soon!


I just thought I'd show you how exciting it is around here today.. meanwhile...have a nice day! ....'till next time.....
