Practical MagicAlice Hoffman's enchanting witch's brew of suspense romance and magic now a major motion picture from Warner BrosWhen the beautiful and precocious sisters Sally and Gillian Owens are orphaned at a young age they are taken to a small Massachusetts town to be raised by their eccentric aunts who happen to dwell in the darkest eeriest house in town As they becomeaware of their aunts' mysterious and sometimes frightening powers and as their own powers begin to surface the sisters grow determined to escape their strange upbringing by blending into normal societyBut both find that they cannot elude their magic filled past And when trouble strikes in the form of a menacing backyard ghost the sisters must not only reunite three generations of Owens women but embrace their magic as a gift and their key to a future of love and passionFunny haunting and shamelessly romantic Practical Magic is bewitching entertainment Alice Hoffman at her spectacular best I love the film of this and used to watch it loads when it first came out but hadn’t realised there was a book until I saw it on the sale Last weekend I was feeling a bit Halloweeny so decided how would be the perfect time to start readingFor lovers of the film it is obviously uite different and I can imagine if I’d read the book first I would probably have been annoyed about some of the cuts and changes they made but doing it this way round I can kind of understand some of them The book takes place over a longer timescale and in locations than the film so they obviously needed to condense things down and just covered the main plotI really enjoyed this Hoffman’s writing flows really well and holds your interest I was completely gripped My only complaint would be that she maybe tried to cram too many plot threads into the story and it meant some areas weren’t explored as thoroughly as I would have liked and the ending seemed a little inconclusive for meI love the Owens sisters; the different ways they deal with the difficult upbringing that they had were very realistic and in keeping with each of their characters Although it is a novel with witchcraft at its heart it wasn’t hugely dark or gothic but definitely helped with the Halloween feels so glad I read it at this time of yearI’d definitely be open to reading of Hoffman’s work
