It just seems that more was needed to make this book really stellar.

was ok for that time when books about witchcraft were not put into real detail as they are today. but a good book for reading on the train or subway.

The book definitely met all expectations!

This book is great and the movie is great also. It is most definitely part of my collection and is one of my favorites.
