Sooooooo, last week I noticed that KChen had a novel (in his pile of novels) that I had heard about last year but never got around to reading . . .so I snatched it! He immediately noticed but let me take it home anyway! The Alchemyst by Michael Scott – holy moly! Remember a while ago when I wasn’t loving The Red Pyramid by R Riordan (who will be at the Princeton Market Fair Barnes & Noble this Tues @ 6 pm) – I realized that the reason I didn’t like it was b/c a lot of the story involved TELLING the reader about all of the ancient egyptian history. . .well, this novel also deals with ancient egyptian stuff, but incorporates the history into the storyline, so the reader is learning through the story, the action - not being TOLD, rather SHOWN. . .lovelovelove – will stay up to finish tonight – and I suggest the rest of you get your hands on a copy asap!
