  1. i thought this book was a fun read, and the characters made me laugh from time to time. the basics of the plot has definitively been done before, in the sense that one sibling is in danger while another has to save him, all the while battling foes and a crazy mother. i liked the take on magic in the book, and Alan was my favorite character. i think that the characters were a bit flat and one dimensional, and the main Nick was not as complex as a 16 year old boy would be. all he thought about was being angry, he never expressed any other emotion. if the characters had been more rounded i think i would have liked the book better.
