Author: Mike Russell
I received the kindle version of this book.
‘Magic’ is written from the point of view of Charlie Watson, a young man who was brought up by a magician.
Charlie Watson believes in magic, and he wants everyone to know it too.
The story starts as, “Before the universe existed, there was a giant, black, upside-down top hat surrounded by empty, black nothingness.”
The book is purely based on magic, and the story revolves around Charlie and his life events. Through Charlie, the reader learns about how magic can create happiness. The story has ups and downs, and the meaning and existence of magic is proven, disproven, and altered.
Because the story has ups and downs, the meaning and importance of magic varies in the novel.
The main character, Charlie Watson, is innocent and naïve. His characterisation makes the novel even better to read.
It is well-written and as per the title, it is “MAGICAL”.
The last chapter left a smile on my face.
It is a happy read and will definitely uplift your mood. Moreover, the cover is so attractive to add in to your book collections.
What I learned: Appreciate small things in life.
Looking forward to read more books by the author.
My favourite lines from the book:
“Just because magic tricks are fake does not mean that magic does not exist.”
“The world without magic, in which you now believe yourself to live, is just as much a delusion as the world with magic, in which you used to believe yourself to live.”
I really love this and will recommend this book to everyone.
