Alright, before we get into reviewing THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL, I would like to thank whoever is reading this blog. 200 page views already????? :D Yay!! Okay so yeah, thanks guys.
And now we find ourselves at the review for THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL.
Here's what Soman Chainani gets for his debut:
***** FIVE STARS!!!!!
Alright, you guys know I rarely give out five stars. So you're probably thinking oh, this book must be really good. No kidding. It IS. I had heard about the SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL on the Amazon Book store, making 4 stars for an over all review. Pretty good for his first book right? So I decided to read it. Sophie and Agatha did not let me down.
The girls' stories are unpredictable. And if i read ahead, nothing made sense, forcing me to read it all the way through. Which is good, so you actually read the book. (And yes, it does make sense when you read all of it. Besides you won't want to skip a single page.) Maybe it does have a bit of a slow start. But by the time you get to chapter 2 (specifically page 31), you hands will never leave the grip of the book. An asteroid could have hit the Earth and you would not have noticed. That's how good it is.
Here's what one of the readers thought:
"Soman Chainani has written a beautiful and enthralling novel that will appeal to every age out there because it has a bit of everything, action, romance, the meaning of friendship and everything else in between. You will never read a book like this one, Soman Chainani has written a one of a kind novel that will amaze you. I just loved this book. Loved it. LOVED. IT. And can I just say, that ending made me cry." Says Louisse @ The Soul Sisters.
I couldn't agree more. No one will be able to recreate the greatness of Soman's work. He has a real, strong bond between Sophie and Agatha like no other. These two will do anything to get in the right place, and they work together till the end. The Tale of Sophie and Agatha may not be a classic fairy-tale, but it has deserved to be an equally wonderful work of art to the world. If you had to ask me what the best part of the book was, I'd have to say the whole book! This book has gotten to the best sellers list in a year, so I think just that speaks for itself. If you haven't read the book, you need to run to the nearest library or bookstore so you don't miss out on anything.
I'll have the summary and review of Book 2 within the next few weeks! Next week we'll take a blast to the past with The Friendship Doll!
