The Holy Terror

A possible retreat from goodreads ... though I'm tempted to yell "get off my lawn" at this site's tumblresque-ness. Yes, that's totally a word.

Half Magic (Tales of Magic, #1) - Edward Eager It is difficult to put my finger on exactly what I didn't love about Half Magic, but I thought this review brought up some really good points. I thought this book was a bit racist and sexist, I couldn't remember which kid was which and the idea for the magic was ill-conceived; if you can just ask for twice of something, what is the reason for halving it? I just didn't see a point.I think this might be one of those stories we love as a child that ends up not working because we see things differently as adults or because the story's morals and ethics are dated. I will most likely not read another book by Eager.
