    1. 2.0 stars I did NOT like this book The plot was derivative, the writing was passable AT BEST and the two teenage main characters annoyed me to the point of causing actual hair loss.However, the book avoided the 1 star noose based solely on some crafty ideas and oh so unused potential that I will explore once I briefly explain the plotwhich should not take long as we have all seen this tired old movie beforeIEF TIRED OLD PLOT SUMMARY Sophia and Josh two VERYannoying kids work at a book store for [...]

    2. Dear Josh,let me start out with you You could ve been a really great kid but apparently, the author just couldn t make up his mind about you One minute you re an ordinary kid who likes superheroes and doesn t do well in school and then you become this person who has a super computer and uber nerdtastic knowledge Whoa, big difference I feel sorry for you I really do I get jealousy I get envy What I don t get is how you and Sophie never fight Is it just that in those two days that I was extracted [...]

    3. Okay I liked this book a lot than most people who have written reviews I feel that it s because I didn t go into it with many preconceived notions I had hoped it would be related to Harry Potter, but when I realized it wasn t I moved on I also didn t read the book because I was a huge fan of the real Flamel If you read it for either of those reasons, you will most likely be disapointed.15 year old twins Sophie and Josh have gotten summer jobs in San Franciso Josh works at a bookstore, and Sophi [...]

    4. YA naslov iliti Young Adult, kako takve knjige u svetu izdava tva zovemo Kupio me je jo u rukopisu Alhemi ara je objavio Evro Giunti Po to ni ta nisu uradili s tim naslovom uprkos sjajnom prevodu vrsnog prevodioca , odustali su od autora drugi naslov uradila je Mladinska knjiga s istim prevodiocem Ali ni oni se, na alost, nisu previ e potrudili I tre i naslov nije objavljen u Srbiji Dok ga u Hrvatskoj na moj nagovor lepo gura Algoritam itaoci moraju da razumeju da se esto de ava, kada izdava ka [...]

    5. This book was awful So awful, it warrants me actually putting in a review.First of all, there isn t enough Nicholas Flamel There is far too much of the twins that kind of become Nic s apprentices, and attatches way too much teenage exposition to them And we don t need the two of them mentioning that their parents are archaeologists every other page We got it the first time Move on And even if their parents are archaeologists, they re not necessarily going to know as much about it as they seem to [...]

    6. I ll try to be fair here, this is a YA book and it comes in telling us it s going to play with historical and mythological figuresd play it does I found the book annoying and wonder at the damage we re doing to our youths and their knowledge of mythology, what we can learn from mythology, from the archetypal characters, thoughts, and ideas they contain Okay, part of rant over There are different types of YA books Some are yA while others are Ya This is in style and execution of a Ya book with [...]

    7. If you re a fan of Percy Jackson or maybe even The Raven Cycle because of the ley lines leygates , then definitely check this out This book manages to cram so many different world myths and legends into a modern fantasy story and at times it almost felt too ambitious But the story found its footing by the end and I think this series is going to be really fun It s a bit on the younger side of YA and felt like middle grade at times Kind of in the same group with Artemis Fowl and Percy Jackson The [...]

    8. Quick review on this one Oh how this book conflicted me so On the one hand, I really enjoyed the story and the characters but ultimately the shoe horning of SO MANY historical events and figures into the story just curbed my enjoyment of it I get what the author was trying to do Flamel was a real person who supposedly discovered the secret to immortality but the cramming in of all of the historical figures that he encountered along the way as well as the significant historical events just killed [...]

    9. I enjoyed The Alchemyst than I thought I would It didn t sweep me away with the must finish this book now feeling, but I also was never bored Fans of Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson books, and even The Da Vinci Code will find interesting connections and similarities here And yet Scott manages to bring something just a bit new to the table as well I was interested to learn that many of the main characters Nicholas Flamel, Perenelle Flamel, and Dr John Dee were actually rea [...]

    10. REMEMBER This is Fantasy Welcome.I experienced a world that was filled with ancient characters both good and evil , strange creatures, and wonderfully described scenes with TONS of detail.I met twins, a boy and girl, with pure auras who possess magical powers that once awakened will change the world A six hundred year old alchemyst who performs magic and the air around smelled like mint His wife possibly the same age who is magical in different ways and befriends ghosts A two thousand and a half [...]

    11. I had high hopes when I picked up this book At the time, I was fresh off the Harry Potter series and had a bad case of Post Potter Depression The idea of learning about the intriguing and mythical Nicolas Flamel which I had heard of before HP instantly captivated me, and the book blurb only added fuel to the fire Sadly, about halfway through I had to shelf this one DNF I found the protagonists Sophie and Josh very flat and one dimensional They spent most of the time confused or panicky and quit [...]

    12. En cierto modo todos somos prisioneros prisioneros de las circunstancias y de los acontecimientos.Buen libro Aceptable inicio de saga Me gust mucho que el autor haya incluido tanta magia, mitolog a e Historia Los personajes no me despertaron ninguna simpat a, pero espero sentir algo por ellos a medida que vaya avanzando en la serie Como aspectos negativos tengo que decir que no me convenci c mo est escrito No me gusta la manera de narrar de Michael Scott Es demasiado repetitiva y alarga descripc [...]

    13. To be honest I would never have read this book had I not been given it for my birthday It was obviously one of those books that was cranked out immediately after the Harry Potter phenomenon and was unabashedly aimed toward that audience Now don t get me wrong, I adore Harry Potter and that s probably why this sort of book irritates me I ve picked it up in the bookstore before, interested by the title and catchy cover, but after flipping through it I always put it back It is very similar to Rick [...]

    14. I m getting better at my new don t read bad books plan Not that this one is bad, exactly, so much as it is a little bit irritating The two kids in the story are just too much They know everything, can do everything, they re just too perfect And really Mr Scott, did you have to attempt to borrow a story from every fantasy written in the last 2000 years and cram it into this one I mean, really But what clinched it for me was a main character named Scatty Every time I read that name, my mind substi [...]

    15. Dreadful.I appreciate because I can read through other negative reviews and feel justified in my hatred of a book.There is not much I can say that hasn t already been said.The book is about Nicholas Flamel the Alchemyst spelled with a y because his author father wanted him to be yoo nique and a bunch of whiny and conveniently forever questioning teenage twins who are on the run from the evil Dr John Dee called Dee, which makes him sound like a very silly villain his tagline should have been I m [...]

    16. The Alchemyst Michael Scott The author kept referring to the weather in San Francisco as hot and dry, which, sure, it can be, but mostly isn t That was strike one.Strike two was the idea that if A is true then everything ever must also be true Again, it could be, but it doesn t have to be.Strike three was putting the teens into Yggdrasil and having them be shocked, SHOCKED I say, that they can t get cell phone or internet service.Also, there s way too much about auras I hate auras 7 31 17 edited [...]

    17. Svidjaju mi se ideje, likovi su interesantni a prica je fina i ipak na karju knjiga me nije odusevila Nekako mi fali ono nesto, momenat koji bi me vezao za sve sto se desava Ovako na zalost bilo je zabavno za citanje ali nisam bio posebno zainteresovan dal ce nasi heroji da se izvuku ili ne.Plus samog Flamela ima previse malo u knjizi.Ali ima potencijal tako da ce mo nastaviti sa sledecom knjigom.

    18. 3.5 starsThe main problems of the series I read the first four books 1 The story takes place in a few days the first book 2 days, the second one 3 days If it continues like this, the world will be saved in what Two weeks The war lasts milleniums, there are centuries old people and even older creatures, yet two children ehm teenagers are going to end it in a matter of weeks 2 As I said, characters here are usually living on the earth for some time, some of them are even ten thousand years old and [...]

    19. A lot of people haven t heard of this series, and I don t know why, because these books are AWESOME We have adventure, we have wit, we have sass, and my absolute favourite myths and legends coming to life Topped off with the wonderful absence of teenage drama makes this a delightful read If you liked the excitement of Harry Potter, the modern mythological adaptations of Percy Jackson and a new take on some of the world s most mysterious legends then this is the book for you.

    20. I was first interested in this book for the same reason I m sure it made the New York Times bestseller liste it is about Nicholas Flamel, who is mentioned in the Harry Potter books, specifically in the first book about the Sorceror s Stone, as being a friend of Professor Dumbledore Flamel was a real historical figure though who lived in the 1300 s, was a scientist who practiced alchemy, and supposedly discovered the secret to eternal life related to the sorceror s stone as well as turning coal i [...]

    21. The Alchemyst is a teen tween book that manages to combine various world mythologies into one At the center of it is a mysterious Book of Abraham the Mage which has given immortal life to Nicholas Flamel and his wife But the book can also be used to bring about the return of the Dark Elves and the enslavement of the human kind.Fifteen year old twins, Sophie and Josh, are the only ones who can save or completely destroy the world as has been foretold.I like the story of this book and, especially, [...]

    22. Yet another book I loved as a kid and then stopped loving Maybe I should just forget about reviewing these Thousands of different world myths and world historical facts are integrated into one clever world There s some interesting worldbuilding surrounding auras, which, although slightly overcomplicated, is certainly interested As the series continues, however, it gets confusing than enjoyable.As a fantasy story, this does fall a bit on the cliche side There s the wise old mentor, who happens t [...]

    23. Ich w rde an dieser Stelle jetzt gern sagen, dass mir das Buch einwandfrei gefallen hat und ich total begeistert bin, denn das w re ich gern gewesen Vor allem, da es wirklich viel gegeben hat, das mich vom Hocker hauen konnte Besonders gut haben mir die vielen vielen Anspielungen auf die Mythologie gefallen Die Art wie die Welt beschrieben ist, wie die Magie funktionierte, dass es G tter in dem Sinne doch gibt All dies konnte mich voll und ganz berzeugen Besonders nat rlich in Verbindung mit den [...]

    24. This is a serviceable fantasy that I plodded through I liked the settings and descriptions Scathach s dojo, Hekate s tree, the mix of characters from mythology, all very cool But the story never grabbed me, I never had trouble putting the book down.I think it suffers from a lack of focus since we don t follow just one character, we don t get much character development, and so we don t care very much about what happens to them And I was disappointed that we didn t get to a natural break in the st [...]

    25. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.The 14th century alchemyst Nicholas Flamel has the secret codex containing the recipe for the elixir of life hanging around his neck For centuries, Dr John Dee has been hunting for him because he wants that book Dee has finally traced Flamel to his bookstore in 21st century California He busts in, gets all but the last two pages of the book, and kidnaps Flamel s wife Now the world is in danger because Dee plans to bring the dark Elder gods to power and the [...]

    26. Scott uses a gigantic canvas for this riveting fantasy The well worn theme of saving the world from the forces of evil gets a fresh look here as he incorporates ancient myth and legend and sets it firmly, pitch perfect, in present day California At the emotional center of the tale are contemporary 15 year old twins, Josh and Sophie, who, it turns out, are potentially powerful magicians They are spoken of in a prophecy appearing in the ancient Book of Abraham the Mage, all but two pages of which [...]

    27. This Book was AMAZING The plot was incredibly clever the author is a master of suspense This book is a Sci fi Action Adventure book With a hint of a mystery This book is about a boy and his sister working normal lives until their completly normal boss Nicholas Flamel is attacked by Gray men in black suits Their boss turn out to be a Magic ball of energy casting alchemyst and he is an immortal there are three main characters allthough i cannot remember their names, but these characters are all ro [...]

    28. Somewhere in the 3 3.5 rangeIf you re a fan of Percy Jackson, you ll probably enjoy this If you re on the younger end of the teenage spectrum, you ll probably enjoy this than I did Mythology and world history combine with some great action sequences in this book, and it s a fun ride The twins reminded me a bit of Carter and Sadie from Rick Riordan s Kane Chronicles Josh and Sophie, similarly, have their own individual parts to play in the grand scheme of saving the world, and Michael Scott did [...]

    29. It s somewhere around a 2 and 3 4 star book.Ever since I seen the cover of this book I wanted to read it I have always had an interest in alchemy, philosophy and mythology and stories with those elements I also adore the cover It is beautiful.But, reading the reviews I was some what put off Then I read it anyways I don t know why but just had too It s actually an okay book I enjoyed it than I thought I would It is an easy read with potential than it s actual realization The story line is okay, [...]

    30. Sadly I could not rate this book any higher as it really was just okay It is claimed to be Young Adult but to me it seemed to be for even younger readers As I was reading I kept thinking things like Enid Blyton with magic or even worse the Bobbsey Twins Suffice it to say I read it quickly and will not be continuing with the series.

    31. I was hooked from the very beginning The storytelling is so captivating and the descriptions put me right into the story I loved the magical aspects to this book The basic premise is that the Famels have been using the Book of the Codex to brew an immortality potion for centuries They are the protectors of this ancient and powerful book, but now it s been stole A pair of twins gets swept away in the chaos and later realize they are involved than they could have imagined This is a fun, gripping [...]

    32. I LOVED this book, although I read the second book, the magician, first I work at a bookstore and we are allowed to loan hardcover books so long as we keep them in mint condition, to broaden our book knowledge We didn t have this copy in hardcover, but we had the sequel in hardcover, and i didn t want to buy it if i wasn t sure if i would like it Eventhough the second book picks up really fast, I was able to understand what was going on as the author subtly explains the plot continuation without [...]


    34. I have to admit, I was one of those people who saw this book and said Omg a Harry Potter spin off After discovering it was not I put off reading the series I recently watched the movie As above, so below which features Nicholas Flamel and I remembered this series A typical YA series, not to much new but I still enjoyed it and really liked the corporation of mythology into the world the author created I enjoyed the settings it got an extra star for Notre Dame and I am looking forward to the next [...]

    35. Twins Sophie and Josh Newman find themselves suddenly thrown from their ordinary lives and innocuous summer jobs into a world of magic and danger that they never knew existed right alongside or rather inside their own This was a book I picked up essentially because of the title and because it was about the mysterious Nicolas Flamel who I have met or at least heard of in other books Harry Potter among them While this is the kind of book I do enjoy with magical worlds as well as actual history mix [...]

    36. I like The Alchemyst.I googled Nicholas Flamel So true Because I am intrigued by fiction inspired by people that really existed in the past And alchemy is something I craved reading way back in high school.The Alchemyst was hard to get into Really hard The first half was boring It only got interesting when Hecate came in And that got the action ball rolling, so to speak.The adventure was there so were the villains Its hard to hate Dr Dee when you read his POV as well, correct And Perenelle Flame [...]

    37. I really liked it Begitulah tulisan kecil yang muncul dibawah empat bintang And I really liked it And 4.5 deh0.5 bonus buat penerjemahan yang bagus.Atau bisa juga dibilang diskon 0.5, karena bukan buatan bangsa indonesia grin.Eeeeeniweeeeibuku pertama dari serial Nicholas Flamel karya Michael Scott ini memang luar biasa Kemampuan pengarang menggabungkan beberapa sub genre fantasy ini istilah karangan saya aja, meneketehe EGP bener apa salah , yang terdeteksi sejauh ini ada magick alkemi sihir a [...]

    38. I just finished The Alchemyst Book one in Michael Scott s series The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel I can t wait for book two In all seriousness, the book is not that fantastic, the beginning reads like a movie, and there are too many specific references to current pop culture, for example, Green Day, blue tooth, iPod, etc, but I really enjoyed reading it I thought it brought up some interesting theories and mythology First off its fiction, but according to the plot, every myth is actua [...]

    39. Although this book was aimed at Young Adults, I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised There are twins who are staying with their Aunt whilst their parents are away They both get summer jobs, Sophie working in a coffee shop and Josh in a bookshop The bookshop is owned by Nick and Perry Fleming All goes fine until the bookshop gets attacked, and it is revealed that the Flemings are really the Flammels and for centuries they have been guarding a book The tale itself is very well crafted and [...]

    40. It s like the author tried to cram a dozen different mythologies together to make his own little story , with bland as fuck characters you don t give a shit about, and the most boring plotline you will read in a long time.It s classified as Young Adult but reads like a pretentious middle grade Don t even bother.

    41. Mein Sohn hat vor allem zu diesem Buch gegriffen, weil Nicholas Flamel ja in Harry Potter eine Rolle spielt und er irgendwie gedacht hatte, er k nnte so in die Zauberwelt zur ck.Hier wird allerdings ein ganz eigener Kosmos aufgebaut, mit Unsterblichen und deren Kampf um die Vorherrschaft in der Welt, in die die f nfzigj hrige Zwillinge Sophie und Scott hineingezogen werden.Die vielen Anspielungen auf Mythen und Legenden sind an meinem Neunj hrigen zwar vorbeigerauscht, weil er einfach noch nicht [...]

    42. I love the authors style because his writing can be understood by a younger audience, however it isn t a nusence to readers of a higher reading level He does this by using loads of sensory detail, similes, metaphors and imagery This book is one of my favorites and look forwards to reading the other books in the series I don t think this book is comparable to any of the others I have read because it has such a unique plot theme and style all of which are impossible without this talented author.I [...]
