“One of his strongest efforts. . . . We’re all a lot richer to have Richard Matheson among us.”
“A fascinating variation on the locked-room mystery. . . with more hairpin turns than a mountain road. Now You See It . . . is absorbing.” —The Washington Post Book World
“There are as many twists and turns as a medieval catacomb in one of the most fun novels of the year.”—Rocky Mountain News
“Matheson’s prose is extremely smooth and the pacing frantic, with some outrageous surprise coming at least once per chapter, every three or four pages. The plot takes so many 180-degree turns that it spins.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

While reading this book I kept waiting for the story to get interesting - it never did. The tricks were boring and redundant, the characters were one dimensional, and by the time there was a climax (if there was one), I didn't care.Was this review helpful?

The problem I had with this book was that the magic tricks were poorly written, nothing too shocking at all, and the ending was to say the least, just poor judgement. Yes, each chapter keeps you guessing, but if it's well crafted writing you want, on top of it, this book doesn't do it. I can't give away the ending, but I will say that the choice Matheson makes concerning the Cassandra character and her brother, was to shock the reader, bearing no real creed to the story line.Was this review helpful?
