Publisher's Summary

Nicodemus is a young, gifted wizard with a problem. Magic in his world requires the caster to create spells by writing out the text...but he has always been dyslexic and thus has trouble casting even the simplest of spells. And his misspells could prove dangerous, even deadly, should he make a mistake in an important incantation. Yet he has always felt that he is destined to be something more than a failed wizard.

When a powerful, ancient evil begins a campaign of murder and disruption, Nicodemus starts to have disturbing dreams that lead him to believe that his misspelling could be the result of a curse. But before he can discover the truth about himself, he is attacked by an evil that has already claimed the lives of fellow wizards and has cast suspicion on his mentor. He must flee for his own life if he's to find the true villain. But more is at stake than his abilities. For the evil that has awakened is a power so dread and vast that if unleashed, it will destroy Nicodemus...and the world.

    "it was a good book"

    I really loved the world and the idea behind the magic. I however found parts of it very annoying. the book would often jump forward in certain areas leaving parts out entirely or it would go back and explain what happened a little bit further on. it made little hiccups in the story that was confusing and I had to rewind and make sure I hadn't just missed something. it really pulled you out of the story.

    Overall I will probably read more books of this series but I have no drive to look for them right away.

    "Spellwright is like Harry potter but less lame"

    it's a good book, I could have done without the dyslexic stuff in the beginning. Glad there wasn't a misspellings word count. Also, the fake Jamaican ascents were kinda annoying at times.

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    Story
    "Disablity"

    There is a little adventure story in here but a great deal of the book is really about disability and the impacts it has on people emotionally. I think that possibility one of the more frustrating part of Dyslexia is that you know your mind is broken and your stuck. You want to write people but the results are embarrassing; your know the answer but can't communicate it in the way people are interested in.

    I would say this book trying very hard to take the reader through in a magically word a great deal of the pain and frustration a reasonable successful person with dyslexia go through from about high school to mid university.

    Actually the magic pretty good too.
