    "GREAT LISTEN"

    The narration was superb. I found myself getting really caught up in the story visualizing and truly disliking some of the characters. This must be what it was like years ago to gather round the radio and listen to the weekly series. Another great listen from Patterson and Dembowski.

    "Less than what I anticipated."

    The first book was good. I thought this one would be as good but it was not.

    "Worth the listen"
    What did you love best about Witch & Wizard: The Fire?

    It was a very exciing, compelling story that moved quickly, was different than anything I have read before and highlights the value of a loving family and good friends.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Whit healed Wisty and realized he had the gift of healing, and they shared Christmas with Pearl Marie's family and remembered how much they still had.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third and final book in a trilogy that takes the classic struggle of good and evil to another level. Brother and sister team Wisteria and Whitford Allgood learn they are gifted in ways they never imagined. Wisty is a Witch and Whit is a Wizzard, and those closest to them are disapearing. They learn abruptly when The One Who is The One and his followers appear in their home one night (in the first book) to arrest them. They escape but their parents do not. Whit learns that his girlfriend, Celia, who had gone missing several months before, was taken to get to him and Wisty, and she was tortured and killed and now exists in the Shadow Lands. She makes occasional appearances to save the siblings from life and death situations because a prophecy identifies them as the only hope for defeating a The One, who is a Hitler-like dictator. The One is obsessed with capturing the Allgood children alive because he wants to posess their gifts. There are death squads throughout the land seeking to destroy creativity. Children seem to be the ones mainly targeted. Wisty and Whit join the resistance, a group of children who try to fight the suprnatural forces of evil. I won't tell you how good overcomes evil, because that is too much of a spoiler, but good does triumph. It is an amazing story and well told. Character development is excellent and the author mixes humor into the horror to keep it compelling. The narrators were well chosen to tell the story. Their voices are filled with passion, emotion and are very easy to listen to. I highly recommend this entire series.

    Story
    "Written by a 13 year old girl."
    What disappointed you about Witch & Wizard: The Fire?

    The story, plot, dialogue, and descriptions all seem to be written by a teenager. Slang like "rock out" and other teenage rebellion imagry distracted from the overall story. A couple of times during the story I had to stop becuase I was loosing interest in the dialogue.


    Any additional comments?

    I was excited to listen to Elijah Wood read James Patterson...very disapointing. The readers did OK with a sub par script.

    Story
    "Glad I read it, moving on."

    Grr! I should give this two stars! Patterson or publishers decided not to have text-to-speech enabled. I was too tired to try to just read it. So I downloaded the Audible version to assist me in reading the Kindle version. That made this a very expensive read. The narrators were good. The story was fun. I wish I could say I hated it. But I was glad to see this story ended. In fact, I think the story could have ended two or three chapters before it actually did. Let the imagination tie up the loose ends. Oh, well. Thousands of books to read. Happy to move on.

    Story
    "Continuing with the collection"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There is one thing I would change and that would be a brief history or summery of the prior books. This story jumps right in but it's not a stand alone story so if you didn't read last two books you would be lost.


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Patterson and Jill Dembowski ? Why or why not?

    The style of the authors is good, they keep the reader interested. This is geared toward young adults and as an adult I often follow authors of this genre so I'd be willing to try another book from them.


    Have you listened to any of Elijah Wood and Spencer Locke ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have only heard these actors in this book series.


    Could you see Witch & Wizard: The Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, a movie maybe but not a TV series. There isn't enough new material to fill the interest of the watcher.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book because I enjoyed the first two. But as usual in any series the story line starts to get old. The First book was definitely the best.

    "Good, not great"
    What made the experience of listening to Witch & Wizard: The Fire the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the continuation of the overall storyline.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The learning curve of the kids learning to control their powers. You didn't know where the next use of their power would take them.


    Which character ??? as performed by Elijah Wood and Spencer Locke ??? was your favorite?

    Both were good, I would not pick one over the other.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No!


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed with the writing. Patterson has books that are written a lot better.

    What would have made Witch & Wizard: The Fire better?

    I love the series but I don not think it should be advertised for young children to read. Like the ads i have seen on TV.


    Has Witch & Wizard: The Fire turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no
