Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer

Book Name: Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer

Author: Rick Riordan

Rating: 4.5/5

As an avid reader, after Harry potter most of you must have been in a quandary to choose between Percy Jackson, Magnus Chase and Heroes of Olympus. First, I finished Percy Jackson and now I started Magnus Chase. Here is the book review of the first book.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer is the book I liked. The story starts with Magnus being very hapless as he lost his mom: the person whom he loved the most. Magnus sleeps under bridges. The basic story is Magnus needs to stop Surt, who is about to cause doom everywhere. I am not going to tell you much about the rest of the story because hash tag no spoilers. This book is filled with full of adventures. One negative of this book is it is too long: 500 pages: OK for me but the font was also so small. I liked the way Magnus narrates his story. It is like we are in the book with Magnus. 

I would give this book 4.5 on 5 stars because I didn’t like the ending.

I wanted Surt to cause doom and the gods of Asgard fight it. My favorite character (you guessed it by now) is Magnus. He has all the qualities of a hero. 

I would end with a Rick Riordan quote “Go where your heart tells you to go otherwise it will be doom.”

Hobbies - Bird watching and Book reading

Did you know there are 129 million books in existence. Well, I am not a book worm and I don't like to always talk about books. However, reading has always been my stress buster. Due to my love of books, I started collecting feathers and bird watching. Wonder how??

Well, books and birds are not much related except for the B. But for me, bird watching started with book reading. Probably, the books I read were not that enchanting to catch my complete attention. Whenever I read a book in the morning, sitting in my balcony, I hear a lot of birds chirping. I may be a lubrocubicularist but when I see birds I leave the book. I am an ardent bird watcher now and a book reader too. I always wanted to go to Jurong Bird Park.Will go one day.

Once a bird saved my life —
When I was in 4th standard I accidentally put a metal plate in the microwave and at that time I was reading Harry Potter. One sparrow came into our house window and was not letting me read. Because it chripped a lot, I went to kitchen and thankfully noticed this metal plate inside microwave. I thanked the bird and mocked myself for being so irresponsible. Hey, not my fault. Please ask J.K.Rowling to change her content of the book. I was totally engrossed that I didnt realize what I was about to do.

Anyway talking about birds. I want to conclude by saying "the reason why birds fly and we don’t is: we don’t have faith in ourselves!!!
