    3.75 stars I m a little embarrassed to admit it wasn t until I read my first Alice Hoffman novel last year The Museum of Extraordinary Things that I realized Practical Magic wasthan just a swoon worthy movie I d watched a dozen times over it s also a book With numerous viewings under my belt and the upcoming release of the prequel, The Rules of Magic, I figured now was as good of a time as any to dive in and give this a read I mean how could I not, the book is always better than the m 3.75 stars I m a little embarrassed to admit it wasn t until I read my fir...

    During the last few months of last year I had been eagerly awaiting Alice Hoffman s new book Rules of Magic I had read new books by some of my go to authors for magical realism, which had left a bitter taste in my mouth because these books were contemporary and devoid of magical occurrences Rules of Magic, while not necessarily magical realism, was simply magical As soon as I finished reading the tale of Frances and Jet Owens, I reserved the story where it all began, Practical Magic Much to During the last few months of last year I had been eagerly awaiting Alice Hoffman s new book Rules of Magic I had read new books by some of my go to authors for magical realism, which had left a bitter taste in my mouth because these books were contemporary and devoid of magical occurrences Rules of Magic, while not necessarily magical realism, was simply magical As soon as I finished reading the tale of Frances and Jet Owens, I reserved the story where it all began, Practical Magic Much to my dismay, many people had the same idea, and I had to wait another two months to read Hoffman s first installment of the Owens family Finally getting my hands on this magical family saga, I was as enthralled as I had been with the new prequel.Sally and Gillian Owens grew up in the rural M...

    The lesson Sally had learned so long ago in the kitchen to be careful what you wish for was so far and so faded it had turned to yellow dust But it was the sort of dust that can never be swept up, and instead waits in the corner and blows into the eyes of those you love when a draft moves through your house It s only recently that I left Hoffman s world inThe Rules of Magic,and so I returned to that world of the Owens family, to pick up where I d left off, with a return to the home of tThe lesson Sally had learned so long ago in the kitchen to be careful what you wish for was so far and so faded it had turned to yellow dust But it was the sort of dust that can never be swept up, and instead waits in the corner and blows into the eyes of those you love when a draft moves through your house It s only recently that I left Hoffman s world inThe Rules of Magic,and so I returned to that world of the Owens family, to pick up where I d left off, with a return to the home of the aunts in Massachusetts, inPractical MagicOf course, I ve seen the movie at least a dozen times over the years, which played somewhat of a factor It s hard to disassociate yourself from all the lines, the actors, the scenes you remember so well from the movie, and impossible to forget certain scenes So, I ll just say that I felt this was very different from the ...

    This is one of those rare examples of the movie being better than the book Yeah I somehow managed to get through it, but this book was like one never ending series of mood setting lists An example Sally thought long and hard each time she hung up the phone She thought about the girl in the drugstore and the sound of Antonia s footsteps on the stairs when she went to bed without a good night hug She thought about Michael s life and his death, and about every second they had spent together This is one of those rare examples of the movie being better than the book Yeah I somehow managed to get through it, but this book was like one never ending series of mood setting lists An example Sally thought long and hard each time she hung up the phone She thought about the girl in the drugstore and the sound of Antonia s footsteps on the stairs when she went to bed without a good night hug She thought about Michael s life and his death, and about every second they had spent together She considered each of his kisses and all the words he had ever said to her Everything was still gray the paintings Antonia brought home from school and slipped beneath her door, the flannel pajamas Kylie wore on chilly mornings, the ...

    Review written by my high school self I used to love the movie for this book, and I didn t even know until after I had seen it that it was originally in book form After finally getting a copy of the book and reading it, something magical happened I didn t know which one I liked better Usually, having to decide favorites between the book and the movie is very easy Except in the case of G...

    Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman is 2003 Penguin publication Originally published in 1995 When I heard Hoffman was releasing a prequel to Practical Magic, this past year, I knew I wanted to read it, but before I did, I needed to reacquaint myself with this book I read this book a long, long time ago, even before the movie was released But, the book was something entirely different from the movie, which is a very charming and delightful adaptation, in my op...

    My fear about this was I wouldn t get on with the magical realism element However that wasn t a problem The problem wasmy feeling that it lacked a raison d etre For a long time it felt like a story was continually being set up but never quite happening I ve never seen the film but have a hunch it might be better than the novel because there s a lot of padding in the book, lots of asides Essentially a light and fun read, intelligent chick lit every male character in this book is a lov My fear about this was I wouldn t get on with the magical realism element However that wasn t a problem The problem wasmy feeling that it lacked a raison d etre For a long time it felt like a story was continually being set up but never quite happening I ve never seen the film but have a hunch it might be better than the novel because there s ...

    I always like a bit of magic so I enjoyed this book very much, my only disappointment being that Sally and Gillian did not embrace their powers and use them At least the aunts knew how to mix up a really good potion and cast an appropriate spell when necessary.I enjoy the way Hoffman writes Her characters are well rounded and likable, and her descriptions of things like the rampant lilac and hordes of toads in the garden are gorgeous Altogether a very readable, entertaining piece of nonsense I always like a bit of magic so I enjoyed this book very much, my only dis...
