Finally finish this 800 pages book after spending the past month reading it, absorbing the richly detail world setting, investing in the colorful cast of characters and stories-within-stories that’s full of mysteries and twist and turns. Now I feel a sense of lost and wish there’s a sequel!! >0The writing style is witty, fun and easy reading, and I can totally see why some critics called it a “Harry Potter for adult”. The book start out slow with seemingly episodic events, then they weaved together as the pace pick up. You can read the summery here.

I really like the idea of ‘magic’ in the book too. Some are very creative and imaginative! I think it can definitely becomes a great addictive serie (seems like there will be sequel!), afterall the ending is qutie a loose one, though it’s satisfying as well. And I think it definitely has the potentials to generate a fandom following. As expect to any hit best selling book, New Lines already snatch the film right to it. Let’s hope they’ll find the right talent people to work on it and hopefully cast the right actors/actress.
