Witch and Wizard by James Patterson

The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they'd never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world?

I’ve never been a big James Patterson fan, but I got this for Christmas so I thought I should read it.
I hate to admit it, but I actually kind of liked this book. It was addicting, when the other books I was reading at the time weren’t. The plot was snappy and the characters were the same. I didn’t like how distant everyone seemed. Normally when you read a book, you connect with it. You feel for the characters and you relate to them. This wasn’t the case in Witch and Wizard. The characters and what they did seemed really distant. I like connecting with the characters, and I wasn’t able to do it when reading this book.
James Patterson is a really popular author, if you like reading his books than I hope you read this one. But I don’t think he’s the author for me.

FTC- Gift.

I've seen a lot of James Patterson's books around, and if you asked me who he was I could name a few books he's written, but I've never actually read one of his.

I've heard his books are pretty good. But I guess I'm just more into YA. I read some Adult titles, but mostly it's Adult Paranormal Romance.

I'm glad you liked this book, but I'm sorry you couldn't connect with the characters. I like to be able to connect with them as well.

Great review. :)
