Hey BookWorms, today I’ll be reviewing the captivating book series by Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil.
The School for Good and Evil is a tale about friendship, magic, trust, betrayal and so much more. It is a great read, and CERTAINLY a page turner, but I would say maybe 9-11+ age wise, because of some romance, violence, and death, but it is definitely a novel directed to a younger audience. My review is also based off of my personal experience with the book, someone very generously gifted it to me when I was 8, I got pretty far, but it never captured my interest in the same way that it does now when I am 10. It is also a complicated read, it has so many plot twists and the description is vibrant, so much so that you can picture clearly the setting as if you were really there; however it may be a little too complicated for younger readers, but, by all means, give it a try!
At first, The School for Good and Evil seems like a normal read about the princess and the witch, but then something goes horribly wrong…. or so you think. That is basically the summary of the whole book. Just when you think that everything is finally going great for Sophie and Agatha, their world is spun again, like some giant game of Spin-The-Wheel. In my opinion, that is what makes the book such a page turner, and it’s magically crafted so it all (kind of) makes sense in the end. (Well of course in the next book something always goes royally wrong, AGAIN)
Now, for my postly “How would I describe this book in 3-4 words?”
Spellbinding, Mysterious, Crafted beautifully
Thanks for reading,
