El Alquimista : Michael Scott :
Matt Yes and no. To start with, you have to know that Nicholas Flamel was a real person. Flamel was a book seller in 15th century France and it is legend …more Yes and no.
Flamel was a book seller in 15th century France and it is legend that he actually discovered the codex, a legendary book that contained the most coveted secrets of alchemy, one of them being how to create the philosephers stone, which is sometimes called the sorcerers stone and does NOT produce the elixir of life: I should also mention Perenelle was actually Flamels wife in real life too.
The Flamels in both the Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel series and Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone originally the philosopher’s stone are not the same person, which would connect the series.
El Alquimista: Los secretos del inmortal Nicolás Flamel
However, both Flamels are based off the same person who actually existed. Michael Scott, author of the book of which we speak, actually wrote a book analyzing the sorcerers stone. He then expanded on the concept of Nicholas Flamel actually living forever and wrote his own series.
Was looking at this book and read some not so interesting reviews. But then again there have been bad reviews and to me the product is amazing. For those who have read it, did you enjoy it or is not worth the time?
Rbooks Well i might be late lmao. I’m going to be honest tho everything …more Well i might be late lmao. I’m going to be honest tho everything was moving slow anyways I liked it and the plot twist at the end ahhh. See all 24 questions about El Alquimista…. Lists with This Book. This alquimisa is not yet featured on Listopia. 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. Josh works at a bookstore, Okay. Josh works at a bookstore, and Sophie works across the street. One day, a group of evil men come to attack Josh’s boss, and it ends up that they are headed by the evil John Dee, Elizabeth I’s spy, and that Josh’s boss is none other than the immortal Nicholas Flamel.
Before flattening the bookstore completely, John Dee and his henchmen steal a very old book, except for the last 2 pages, which Josh has a tight hold on.
It ends up that the book is the secret to Nicholas Flamel’s long LONG life, and that the last 2 pages are key, so now Josh’s life is eel danger, and Nicholas Flamel is aging before his eyes.
Josh, Sophie, and Flamel flee the city, with Dee in pursuit, but they soon learn that there is more to the 2 of them, Josh and Sophie, than they have ever realized, that they are special, and perhaps Flamel is not being completely honest about his reasons for wanting them to accompany him on his journey.
I felt a little confused why Nicholas Flamel couldn’t make another stone, or whatever, to extend his life without the book that Dee took. You would think that he would have the method down pat during the dlamel so years. The book does something different with magic that I’d never read before, which is link it to the 5 senses. According to the book, the reason famel the average person cannot do magic is because their senses are dulled, and when the magic starts happening, there are an amazing number of smells described.
I did think the book did something dangerous, because it tied itself way too much to the present: All of that is really going to date it in time. It did make good historical references, linking the story to events that happened in the past, like the potato famine, and the great fire in London. That somehow made the events in the story more believable and e. I also learned from the book, because the characters in it are ones I never have heard of before, like the Morrigan.
It was cool that he worked, somewhat, with characters who already exist. I bet it would be easier to make them all up, but it was cool to see how they would all interact if they were together. Like Into the Woods, which I just reviewed, I think this book would alquimiata a really excellent movie, and in fact, some of the scenes would play out better in a movie than they did in the book.
El Alquimista : Los Secretos del Inmortal Nicolas Flamel
I would definitely see it. There is a sequel, which is coming out soon, and I’m going to read it.
The ending leaves you with a cliffhanger, so I’m glad I didn’t read it when there was a long wait ’til the next book. View all 5 comments.

We have adventure, we have wit, we have sass, and my absolute favourite 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.

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, especially, how it fits many historical people, events and facts into it.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The plot was incredibly clever. 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. In this book the brother and sister go on an adventure with an immortal named nicholas flamel.
The sequal is The Magician i will be reading this book to. I really liked it. Begitulah tulisan kecil yang muncul dibawah empat bintang. And I really liked it. Atau bisa juga dibilang diskon 0. Ceritanya tentang proses penemuan tokoh yang membuat kisahnya lengkap Belakangan, makhluk jenis kelelawar jadi-jadian menghilang, kalah pamor dari makhluk berbentuk manusia utuh alias drakula sang count dan anak buahnya.
Lambat-laun orang-orang melekatkan nama vampir ke penghisap darah berujud manusia. Satu hal yang masih tetap sama, vampir digambarkan sebagai mahluk jahat yang harus dibasmi dan dimusuhi, bahkan dalm film komedi sekalipun. Sampai muncul Buffy TVS, dengan angel dan spike-nya, yang meskipun masih tetap menghisap darah namun punya itikad “baik” untuk berusaha menahan nafsu dan memilih “korban” dari orang-orang “jahat”.
Dan mulailah jenis2 “vampir” baik ini berkembang dengan pesat. Blade and sequelsUnderwold and sequelsdlsb, hingga yang relatif baru seperti TrueBlood, Twilight and sequelsVampire Academy. Meskipun diakui sendiri bahwa vampir yang menghisap darah juga ada, tapi tujuan menghisap darahnya beda dengan kisah2 vampir yang sudah ada selama ini. Kalaupun ada kisah yang mirip dengan vampir jenis baru ini, baru di buku serial ini terang-terangan disebut “vampir”. Jagoan cewe yang satu ini rasanya jauh2 lebih badass daripada rose View all 14 comments.
I love the authors style because his writing can be understood by a younger audience, however it isn’t a nusence to readers of a higher reading level. He does this by using loads of sensory detail, similes, metaphors and imagery. This book is one of my favorites and look forwards to reading the other books in the series. I don’t think this book is comparable to any of the others I have read because it has such a unique plot theme and style all of which are impossible without this talented author I love the authors style because his writing can be understood by a younger audience, however it isn’t a nusence to readers of a higher reading level.
I don’t think this book is comparable to any of the others I have read because it has such a unique plot theme and style all of which are impossible without this talented author. I cannot tell you how long I’ve waited to begin this series, but I think it is a common dilemma for readers when they get distracted by other books.
