    Hi

    This series is amazing and lifechanging!! The book is so good. I picked it up in a thrift shop, ignored it for a year, and then read it. I can't put them down!! So good I cannot express how much they mean to me now. After the fourth book, I have decided I want to be a wizard!!!!!!!! Overall in the entire series the best characters are Dairine, Nita,.Kit,.and Ronan( not in that order) but eberyone else is brilliant too!!! Amazing!!!

    The Wizard series by Diane Duane

    From the first time I picked this up I found a series I really enjoyed. While definitely aimed at younger readers, older readers [I am 65] can find joy in this work as well. I have read the series several times. Unfortunately, I lost it in a move; but I will replace it so that I can read it again. There are many times when, to me, it is the only reading that really leads to enjoyment. I would recommend it to all ages.

    Great Fantasy Adventure!

    Don't pay any attention to the reviews claiming this book is a bore. It combines science with a very unique type of magic, which is based on the spoken word. The main characters, Nita and Kit, are very realistic, and their adventures are exciting. A good book somewhere between the worlds of Harry Potter and A Wrinkle in Time. The book is a little slow at times, and some science concepts may be difficult for younger readers, but overall, an awesome book!

    GREAT BOOK

    I loved this book. It sat on my bookshelf for a while, but I finally read it and forced myself not to quit. I felt that I could relate to the characters very well.

    Never got to finish

    I started this in middle school when i came across the first book that had just been recently published. Not to long into the first book i had fallen completely in love with it. I made it half way through the series before some uncontrollable events caused me to lose the books and i didnt get a chance to finish a series that i had been so captivated with. Im so glad that the series is available as e-books because now i can finished a series i started @ 13 or 14. So although its been ten years since i last read any of the books im so looking forward to starting again and finishing it! This series is a great one to read for all fantasy lovers. I like that it starts out slow because it gives you time to grow with the characters as their lives change from ordinary to extremely unordinary! If you ever wandered what it would be like to come across a book that could teach to become a wizard than you will throughly enjoy this series as much as i did when i first picked up the book. I know a lot of people complain about the slow pace of the book and i cam fully agree that it does start out slow but when i first read it i was deteemined not to quite and i was richly rewarded as i got towards the last pages of the book i found myself completely engrossed and wanting more! Just like becoming a wizard takes time so does the author and you will be glad for it because you wnt feel like you were rushed or confused as to how things work and such that other fantasy novels do. You will want to know what happens in the next step of being a wizard and what will the next adventure be like? This book is a great start to an even greater series so dont give up! XD

    So You Want to Be a Wizard?

    I recomend this book (along with the rest of the series) to people who like the witch and wizard stuff. This story is full of adventure and mystery. Nita and Kit learn how to become a good friend and deal with situations that are out of this world. They go on an adventure to save the world as we know it. They learn spells and how to depend on eachother throughout the book. (Just a warning the spells may not be what you expect.) Read it. Enjoy it. And share it. (Don't forget to read the rest of the series after you finish this one!)

    Great Book

    I have read this book in the past and loved to be able to reread it again, I had missed it a lot. It is one of Diane Duane's greatest series and look forward to even more of her books.

    This book is absoloutely amazing! Possibly a bit easy, (I am 11), though definitely enjoyable. I recommend the whole series! Again, absoloutely amazing. Diane Duane is a fantastic author. I also recommend Brian Jaques. He is a great author, around the same level.

    Found again

    I first read this book in 1999. By then it was 16 years old and I was 13. I just finished reading it again. It was just as captivating at the age of 26 as it was back then. As soon as I finished I handed it off to my niece. She hasn't pulled her nose out of it in two days. I wish I had know at 13 that there were more to the series but now I am off in search of them. I heartily suggest you do the same.

    Wizard falls short

    I found the whole series of "So you want to be a Wizard" a little boring.<BR/>The story line was good and the characters were developed but the stories all seemed to bog down in places. I bought the whole series and regret that I didn't read the first one before I did that. I strugled through five of the books but just cannot pick up the next one.

    Great Childhood Memory

    This was my favorite series growing up! I highly recommend for kids who love to read. The main character is easy to relate to and fullfills every kids imagination when reading.

    So You Want to Be a Wizard is a good young adult fantasy. It embraces a child's instant belief that if a book says you can be a wizard, then it's a real possibility. It's a fun romp through growing past personal fears to embrace bravery and help change the world, both in large and small ways.

    The writing style is easy to read, geared toward a younger audience, but it's smart and witty enough to engage readers of all age levels. The plot is smooth and well paced. An all around good read.
