Hi all, and welcome to Fiction Friday!
This week, I’m talking about a book called ‘The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel)’, written by Michael Scott.
This book is one I read for the first time years ago, but when I was perhaps a little too young to fully appreciate it, long enough ago, at least, that the storyline now is entirely new to me.
The story has a lot of basis in real mythology, so it’s not only entertaining, but is educational too! The author has obviously done a lot of research for the novel, and his commitment shines through, making the story an incredible one.
If you have any interest in legend and mythology, this book is definitely one I would recommend for you, and you’d probably also like it if you’re a fan of fantasy, namely the Harry Potter series, which itself uses a lot of real mythology, and historical references.
If you’ve read this book, if you’re planning to, or maybe even if this blogpost has made you think you will, be sure to tell me what your thoughts are!
