    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 [...]

    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 e [...]

    Okay. I liked this book a lot more 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, [...]

    YA naslov(iliti Young Adult, kako takve knjige u svetu izdavaštva zovemo) Kupio me je još u rukopisu Alhemičara je objavio Evro Giunti Pošto ništa 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, nažalost, nisu previše potrudili I treći naslov nije objavljen u Srbiji Dok ga u Hrvatskoj (na moj nagovor) lepo gura Algoritam Čitaoci moraju da razumeju da se često dešav [...]

    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 s [...]

    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 more yA while others are more Ya. This is in style and execution [...]

    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 more like middle grade at times. Kind of in the same group with Artemis Fowl and Pe [...]

    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 ki [...]

    I enjoyed The Alchemyst more 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 [...]

    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-an [...]

    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 more 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 [...]

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

    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 R [...]

    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, [...]

    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 [...]

    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/ [...]

    Let me remember how I felt about this book! It's a great idea for a teen modern fantasy series, and I can see it appealing to a lot of Percy Jackson fans. I liked the short chapter lengths and the writing style was easy to follow; information was given in a way that made it easy to take in and didn't disrupt the story even when it was set apart from the rest. There was some repetition of description but otherwise well written. I loved all the different mythology and how it had been put together [...]

    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.

    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 thousan [...]

    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.

    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 coa [...]

    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, especiall [...]

    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 more confusing than enjoyable.As a fantasy story, this does fall a bit on the cliche side. There's the wise old mentor, who [...]

    Ich würde an dieser Stelle jetzt gern sagen, dass mir das Buch einwandfrei gefallen hat und ich total begeistert bin, denn das wäre 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 "Götter" in dem Sinne doch gibt. All dies konnte mich voll und ganz überzeugen. Besonders natürlich in Verbi [...]

    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 [...]

    Αυτή είναι η δεύτερη φορά που διαβάζω τον Αλχημιστή, καθώς αποφάσισα να συνεχισω με τη σειρά και χρειαζόμουν μα επανάληψη, αλλά δυστυχώς ούτε αυτή τη φορά κατάφερε να με εντυπωσιάσει όπως και την πρώτη.Η Σόφι και ο Τζος Νιούμαν, δύο δίδυμα αδέρφια, αναγκάζονται να περάσουν τ [...]

    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 [...]

    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 whi [...]

    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 [...]
