"Secret Of The Immortal Nicholas Flammel: The Alchemyst Book Review #8"

Author: Micheal Scott
Publisher: Random House
He holds the secret that can end the world.
The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life.
The records show that he died in 1418.
But his tomb is empty.
The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. But only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. The secret of eternal life is hidden within the book he protects—the Book of Abraham the Mage. It's the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. That's exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won't know what's happening until it's too late. And if the prophecy is right, Sophie and Josh Newman are the only ones with the power to save the world as we know it.
Sometimes legends are true.
And Sophie and Josh Newman are about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all time. (From the Back of the book)
I'm finally back from Japan and have finished this book. FINALLY,lol. I must say this was a interesting book and the conversations amazed me because for once they were conversations that a actual teen would say. Or if I was in this predicament, I would say. The visual and descriptions were beautifully written. In all this was well-written book. The characters felt real, and it keep the pages turning. At times I felt I needed to set this book down (meaning probably you won't read this in one sitting) because it felt like some of the same things happening over and over again. Secondly it was hard to believe that a boy could be that wimpy, I'm not trying to say that girls are because of course females are strong but I couldn't picture a guy that was scared of a bug. To Impossible, sorry guys. Sorry anyone who this this is a rude statement to think (that all guys are not scared of bugs). But seriously I have not met one guy who is afraid of bugs. I have met girls who aren't afraid of bugs, but not a guy who was. Anyways other then that I don't really have any problems with this other then it can become slow at times. I read the end of this in Japan XD on the flight. Anyways tomorrow I do the Wings review.
