EBOOK ê the Witch and Two Girls from Jersey ç Lisa Papademetriou
When mortal enemies Veronica and Heather get hit by a bar code scanner while fighting over the last If you take fantasy books as serious business for example if you’ve ever yelled this at someone ” How dare you say Hobbits aren’t real?” then this book is not for you But if you can find humor in things you enjoy then I have a feeling you’ll like this book I didNow the characters At first I thought this book would be about Veronica since she’s the one who actually reads fantasy books and knows the layout of the world her and Heather are zapped into Don’t try to figure out the science behind a faulty barcode scanner becoming a means for teleportation into a book Just nod your head like this makes perfect sense especially if you’ve read The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde After introducing Veronica however the focus shifted to Heather the shallow popular girl that used to make fun of us in high school I know we didn’t go to the same high school but I’m 96% sure you were a fellow nerd like me during those teen years Heather’s not altogether bright but I grew to like her especially after she butts heads with a haughty elf Don’t worry he had it coming to himThere are definite references to The Lord of the Rings As I haven’t read many fantasy books that’s the one I noticed the most but there might be others At one point Dungeons and Dragons was mentioned and I sent a mental high five out into the collective nerd mind You should have felt it It happened about ten days ago Anyway every little reference or similarity made me smile Some made me laugh at the absurdness usually the ones that caught me by surpriseBut it wasn’t all fun all the timeFor being a parody there’s actually a plot and a sense of earnestness in the characters I honestly wasn’t expecting much but it was surprisingly good It was cute and sometimes funny in a ridiculous way If you’re looking for a light fantasy read this is itReviewed at WhatchYAreading on May 11 2011
