30 Day Book Challenge: Day 2

Day 2- Least Favorite Book
Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

This was my least favorite for a few reasons.

1) The characters were all horrible people
2) The movie was better and more lighthearted. Though, to be fair, if I hadn't seen the movie first I might have liked it more. Not actually liked it, but maybe disliked it less.
3) Sally basically neglects her children while she wallows and then wonders why her kids are so awful.

And if you've ever seen the movie you see that Gary has a little more of a role. In this he just cries... a lot. And then leaves. The writing was good for what it was, but I loved the movie too much for me to like the book.
