The Magic of Longing
on Nov. 02, 2010
If you don't like magic I wouldn't recommend this book, as the whole world of magic takes a backseat to the actual story. However the presence is there strong enough that if your dead set against it that you probably wouldn't appreciate the story line until the very end.
However, if you can deal with "real-world" magic and are not overly fascinated with it, this book is definitely worthwhile. It's a story of well meant but misguided intentions and how these intentions throw the worlds of the other characters off. While I do believe that the reactions of some of the people did not match their developed characters, it was all worthwhile in the end.
I did enjoy reading this book.
