A Book Review on Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
Anyways it has 286 Pages and I am not exactly sure on how many Chapters though.
As you can see this book was written by Alice Hoffman. This is my First book review done by this Author.
I really wanted to read this book because I saw the Movie based on this book. It has Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock in it. The Movie is really good!
So I thought I would pick up the Book and see how it is with the Movie and if I would like it the same.
On My Kindle it took me about almost a Month to finish but thats because I have school and work. Anyways first I will go ahead and do my opinion about the book before I go into the Summary of what the book is actually about.
So When I first started to read the book I was really liking it. It first starts out just giving u info about the Sisters and How the Curse on them Begin. Throughout the Book it talks about how the Sisters hated each other and how guys threw themselves at them. I didn't really like the Language in there because they used a lot of the word F***. I just didn't like how they used that word in the book. The book though I did like how detailed it was about everything. I could tell though that the Movie didn't follow the book really well. Throughout this book I kinda went back and forth if I loved this Book or not. I was wishing they talked about Magic more.
Rate: 1-10 I am giving this book a 6
This book is about the Owens Girls who are Cursed when it comes to love. When they get too close to a Guy the Guy dies. They are stuck with this Curse until one of the Sisters can break the Curse. The two main Sisters they talk about in this book is Gillian and Sally. Gillian is more of a Wild Child who likes to Party, Sleep with guys, and Pretty much do what she wants to do. Gillian and Sally end up living with their Aunts because Their Mom and Dad died. Gillian decides she has had enough with living with the Aunts and decides to run off with a Guy.
