One thought on “Magic Lessons

  1. Tam Tam

    I didn t like this book as much as the first which I thought was 4 stars I didn t even completely read this one I skimmed through the last few chapters just to find out what happened It was kind of a weird book Some parts I had to skip over just because I thought some of it was inappropriate and wasn t quite for me Okay, so this girl who s 15 has sex with this 18 year old which came to happen because she wanted to kiss this boy and she d never kissed anyone before and was somewhat afraid she was [...]

    I really think that reading Liar first spoiled me for Justine Larbalestier s earlier books They just don t have the same complexity I don t think it helps, reading the second book in a series, that I didn t really get into the first book, very much It s easy to read and pretty fun, but I didn t engage with the characters, and this second book felt even lighter on character development.The whole Reason and Danny thing while feeling quite realistic in one way, also seemed to be going way, way too [...]

    Reason Cansino has been magic her whole life, but she s only know magic was real for 8 days In that time she s moved into Sydney to live with her evil grandmother, her mother s been committed to a Loony Bin, and she s stepped through a door only to wind up on the other side of the world, in New York City.And if that s not bad enough, she gets taken in by stories, only to end up in the clutches of her evil Grandfather, who s worse than her Grandmother, who has to come through the door after her t [...]

    I was very disappointed in this second volume of Larbalestier s Magic trilogy It almost seemed to have been written by a different, and far less capable, author The action and dialogue were disjointed and the rules of the magical world incomprehensible Plus, the Aussie lingo seemed forced, even though Larbalestier is a native speaker if I read the word chunder one time, I was going to, well, chunder Surely the Australians have synonyms for vomiting I ll read the third book because I m incapable [...]

    Life is hard Especially when you are magic For Reason and her friends, there are only two options go mad from refusing to use their magic or die young using it.The answer, according to Reason s grandmother, is to use solely a tiny bit every week Magic Rationing.But then the door the magic one that leads straight from Sidney to New York begins to shake Because something is trying to make its way through Something with Reason s DNA and the ability to pierce through her skin And something that want [...]

    For my October book I read Magic Lessons by Justine Larbalestier After coming back form New York City and stepping through the door everyone thought their lives would be free of the horrible Jason Blake but, little did they know that was not the case After Reason, Tom, and Jay Tee s first magic lesson form Esmeralda they went to the kitchen to get a nice cold drink when suddenly, the door started moving and rattling like crazy They didn t know what it meant and soon enough Reason got sucked thro [...]

    This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing no rithmatic , movies, TV Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here.I rated this novel worthy NOTE UNHIDDEN SPOIULERS Read at your own risk Errata and clunkers p100 They didn t burn everything else, but Just left a pile of ashes I added some of the chicken bones But it hasn t been noisy or violent since then Now it just r [...]

    Yah, trilogy ini bukanlah seri penting ataupun prioritas Dan mengingat buku pertamanya yang gitu aja, tapi tetep rasanya pengin koleksi dan ngerampungin seri ini Yap, buku kedua jauh lebih lumayan dan enak aja dibaca Better story than the first one masih bikin penasaran untuk lanjutannya, jadi mari lanjut ke buku ketiga Betewe kover buku ketiga cantik

    Reviewed by Jocelyn Pearce for TeensReadTooMAGIC LESSONS is the second book in Justine Larbalestier s trilogy, and it s just as wonderful and gripping as MAGIC OR MADNESS In this book, there are just as many questions as in the first, as every answer Reason finds only leads to questions For everything that s resolved, there are five things that I was anxious to find out as I read on There is plenty of suspense in this book Reason, Tom, and Jay Tee have all stepped through Esmeralda s magic doo [...]

    This book is so good and well written but the ending has me so conflicted I don t know if I now love or hate the book or will even read the next one Ahhhhh So frustrating

    pada awalnya semua pasti menduga s pendobrak pintu new york sydney itu Jason Black atau kaki tangannya lah ternyata setelah Reason d tarik k new york dy bertemu kakek2 tua sangat tua, yang tersenyum dan sihirnya jauh lebih kuat dibandingkan kakek neneknya yg masih d curigai jahat waktu Reason mencoba melawan dengan mudah s kakek2 melambaikan tangannya pada Reason alias menepis sihirnya lalu si kakek nyuruh Reason pergi, beruntung ada ibu2 yang mencemaskan keadaan Reason di tengah musim salju kar [...]

    In this sequel to Magic or Madness, the story picks up shortly after the events of the last book Reason Jay Tee are to begin taking magic lessons from Esmeralda Things go badly awry however when someone or something starts trying to get through the door from Sydney to New York As action packed and character driven as the last book this was well written and paced I would have given the book a four except for the ending Full review rant is below due to spoilers.SPOILERSI really liked the book, rig [...]

    Having recently gobbled upMagic or Madness , I am now plotting how I can get the third book from this trilogy,Magic s Child , before I go mad which is to say, as soon as possible Magic Lessonshas the same roaring pace of Larbalestier s first book, but it further explores the troubling contradictions magic brings out in people Namely can you deal with other magic wielders honestly when you know that some day your magic will wear out, and your only hope for survival is taking theirs There s a hint [...]

    The first book was amazing I was so thrilled to finally get the next installment.but that thrill quickly wore off Some of the writing in this book was plain bad, like for example, when Tom was on the phone, there was a loud beeping noise He observed I wonder if monkeys were behind this, cause it sounded like a monkey s burp Passages like these served no purpose and were nonsensical filler Also, at the very beginning, they start a paragraph We met with the three old ladies at the meeting place Wh [...]

    I m enjoying this trilogy so far Certainly, Larbalestier has a way of stringing out the answers, and one of the reasons you keep turning the pages is to simply find out what s really happening I hope all the major loose ends are tied up by the end of the third book, and I look forward to seeing what happens to each of the characters by the end Everyone has something at stake, and that s the beauty of these people return return If you enjoyed the first volume, you ll definitely enjoy this This bo [...]

    The second installment in the Magic or Madness series is just as good as the first I can t wait to finish the series.Reason gets answers to her heritage but many of the answers lead to questions After just escaping New York, Reason is sucked back through the door but her new found friends are left behind She also discovers a mysterious force on the other side of the door which might answer her questions about a way to avoid death or magic at an early age She seeks out Danny, Jay T s brother an [...]

  19. Natlyn

    Not to my liking That said, I think it would work well for its intended audience The setting Australia and New York City and the magic are different enough to be intriguing and the pace and language are good But the characters spent too much time not knowing anything and doubting what and whom they thought they knew for me to really get into the story Part of this may be because Magic Lessons is the second book of a trilogy of which I did not read the first But based on this book, I m sure Reaso [...]

  20. Kat Alexander

    Wow There s so little that can be said about the book without spoilers Still, it was fantastic.Magic Lessons continues the story of Reason, Jay Tee and Tom, keeping the same fast pace as the last novel and further exploring the rules of magic The trio have only just begun to learn from Esmerelda when a strange phenomenon occurs with the door that none of them can explain Soon, they re questioning the fundamentals of magic they d just begun to except, namely the choice of magic weilders die youn [...]

    i read a very favourable review of this trilogy somewhere, but i didn t like it that much the story is split between sydney and new york city, which could have been interesting, but i found the gratuitous use of slang to distinguish the american and australian characters annoying, especially because the characters were all so dumb one of the australians had the excuse of living in small towns her whole life and never getting to know anyone but her mother, but are there really americans who would [...]

    The world building is unique those with magic must use a little bit once a week or go insane but if you use too much you die Talk about a catch 22 This one starts slowly but around page 60 takes off and keeps you turning pages Reason Cansino is a 15 year old girl living in Sydney Australia with a mad crush on an 18 year old boy living in New York City whom she met by going through her grandmothers back door This door is a magic doorway between NYC and Sydney When Reason is yanked through the doo [...]

    Sequel toMagic or Madness The one where Reason gets sucked through the magic door from Australia to New York by a mysterious old man who has insanely strong magic and never speaks Man, this was a mess Critical facts such as the old man s relationship to Reason and Esmerelda would be revealed by someone just knowing But other important things were beaten into the ground we d see something happen to Reason in New York, and then we d have an entire chapter of Reason recounting it for Tom back in Au [...]

    As this second book in the Magic trilogy begins, Reason, Jay Tee, and their friend Tom are on the Australia side of the magic door, having decided to trust Reason s grandmother Esmeralda and learn whatever she can teach them about magic But the evil Jason Blake, still on the NYC side, won t let them escape so easily When something evil seeps through the door and attacks Reason, they assume it s from him, but she instinctively knows it s something mysterious So, empowered with a new, weird magic [...]
