    1. I won this in a First Reads Giveaway. I didn't like this book at all. Somehow despite it's drawbacks and flaws, I was hooked in from like page 10 to around 250. Then it quickly waned and it was a struggle to finish. I don't even know why I was hooked. It was mostly before the complete WTF started setting in but I had problems believing the story throughout. There's potential but ultimately I felt it failed. I'm definitely not pleased with it and am not going to continue the series. I might check [...]


    2. Won in a First Reads giveaway!Basic Plot: Jessie Ralle takes a senior trip to Las Vegas that introduces her to a new game, a new world, and a new life.I remember reading a few Christopher Pike novels back in his earlier career days. He was really popular in the early 90's for his YA horror. Judging by the excitement surrounding this book, he hasn't done anything like that for a while. Frankly, I think Pike needs to move on to adult books at this point. This book is labeled YA (In my opinion) bec [...]


    3. I'll be honest & admit I'm befuddled. As proof, I offer a brief text conversation with my friend Jessi (whose name just happens to be an alternate spelling of the Witch World heroine):ME: I have no idea how to write a coherent review of WWSSI: Then make an incoherent one!ME: See, this is why we're friends.So this girl named Jessie goes on a trip to Vegas. While on a Blackjack spree she meets a fellow named Russell who never seems to lose. She asks to learn his secret & he shows her how t [...]


    4. This brand new series from Christopher Pike will have you wanting for everyone to leave you alone just so you could finish with little to no interruption. The writing and the story is that addictive, fast paced and full of suspense. For a book of five hundred some odd pages, it could've easily been a one-sitting read. But life disrupted my reading mojo so many times that it took me a week to finish. Admittedly, this novel had its claws on me - imbedded so deeply that I'd forgotten a blog tour ob [...]


    5. What sums this book up perfectly: WTF?!My main question is this: Was this book written by a ghost writer? Sure, Christopher Pike is not the best writer, but even for him this is low quality; one of Pike's worst books ever. Support for a possible ghostwriter pages, 93-94:“'How’s your book?' he asked.'The mystery part is excellent but it feels like the author wrote it in a month. All the paragraphs are short and jumpy.''If it holds your interest, that’s all that matters.''I suppose.' I frown [...]



    6. Deja vu happens to us all, but never do we actually think it's because things have actually happened before. At least not for me. But in Jessie's world, that is exactly what it means. Jessie and her friends are graduating high school, and they decide to go crazy. Gambling, drinking, finding the right hook-up it's all on the itinerary. What Jessie doesn't bank on is meeting a dark stranger who will change her life forever. And it all starts with the game of twenty-two.This is a book that I will p [...]


    7. Gah, this book is terrible. Quite possibly the worst Pike book I've ever read, and I've read plenty of mediocre to bad books of his. I've already spent way too much time reading/thinking about this book which was shockingly written by someone who's written dozens of books and has shown in the past better than rudimentary understanding of what a novel is, so I'll just present my thoughts as I had them:Pre-reading notes: Christopher Pike is a writer who’s written quite a few books, and I’ve re [...]


    8. erm. excuse me as I go bang my head against my bedroom door. Quoted from the book itself,"This is a mind-fuck" (274)But it isn't either. It's just so damn confusing. Complicated is good, but when there are HUMONGOUS holes it just becomes confusing. And Jessica, Jessie whatever the fuck her name sometimes morphs into different characters. Its hard to describe, but it's like she's five different people, and not in the whole two worlds paralleling eachother kind of way. Like Pike forgot who he was [...]


    9. Who didn't grow up reading Christopher Pike and loving and cherishing all of his bizarre stories and just not being able to get enough of them?The fact is, I remember loving them and devouring every single one my library got in. I couldn't read them fast enough and the wait until a new one was out, was quite frankly, torture (you can see not a lot has changed for me in my adult years either when it comes to an author I love). Having found one story of his I have never read felt like a treat, eve [...]


    10. Witch World was a rollercoaster ride of a reading experience.Christopher Pike is my favorite writer and I’m always excited when he has a new book come out. But, reading the synopsis and then the early chapters for “Witch World” left me underwhelmed- add to that, the generic cover! One of the reasons I enjoyed his books growing up was that they seemed so much more mature than their intended audience despite the fact he was writing about ghosts, witches, and vampires. Of course, I was a kid [...]


    11. *CAUTION: read at your own risk, many spoilers, too many run-on-sentences to count, and lots of rambling/ranting/confusing stuff*This book is so messed up in so many ways that I don't know where to start. The first few chapters were boring. The next four or so chapters were confusing, but interesting, the entire last half of the book would be best described in three letters: WTF? So many things went wrong at the end, that I sounded like I was going to cry when I was describing it to my sister. * [...]


    12. Review originally posted on My Bookshelf is Ready.3.75 StarsI liked a lot of what this book had to offer, so I'll start with that.*For the most part, the teens talk like real people. I notice a lot of YA books have really stilted dialogue where the teens don't cuss - that isn't realistic. In this book, they did. Not only that, but the conversations felt organic (for the most part).*The explanation of witch powers being linked to specific genes reminded me of A Discovery of Witches.*Even though t [...]


    13. 2 StarsWITCH WORLD is a classic example of a book that was under-edited before publication.There were too many plot holes and infodumps for a great reading experience. Many confusing things went unexplained and piled on top of each other, and when we got explanation, it came in huge bursts. There would be 100 pages of confusion and what-the-hellery, and then a 25-page conversation between two people that explained a few things, when Jessie wasn't being difficult. But not everything was explained [...]


    14. I have read Christopher Pike since I found thirst in 6th or 7th grade and I have LOVED him ever since, each one of his books has a little spark and a creative use of fantasy and a clever back story and its just so intelligently written like if you slapped christopher pike on any book name i would buy it without a second thought because he is really just that awesome but this bookI really liked that he was creating a series now that thirst is almost done (at least I think it is, I'm pretty sure i [...]


    15. I loved this book! I have never read any of Christopher pike, I wish I had sooner. I can't wait for the next one to come out in 2014. I just want to say thanks to Christopher, for writing this book!


    16. I just couldn't get into this book. I was really bored and nothing really struck me as interesting or different from any other YA book with witches.


    17. I have to start out by saying I have been a huge fan of Christopher Pike and his books for nineteen years. I started reading his books around the time I was 11 or 12, and if I'm remembering correctly, the first one I ever read was Whisper of Death. Unfortunately I don't remember that book very well, but reading it influenced me to purchase the first Pike book I would ever own (which is still either my #1 or #2 favorite, depending on the day you ask me), Remember Me.It's been espec [...]


    18. (Source: I borrowed a copy of this book.)Jessie and her friends (including her ex-boyfriend Jimmy) are heading off to Las Vegas for a weekend, but spending time with her ex-boyfriend is going to turn out to be the least of Jessie’s problems during this trip.Using a fake ID to get into a casino and play blackjack, Jessie and her best friend Alex sit down to play, when a high roller comes to the table. His name is Russell, and his winning streak is unbelievable. When Alex storms off in a huff, J [...]


    19. This one was a very peculiar book. I went into in expecting a story about magic and witches, but I would actually describe it as being more like science-fiction, with sci-fi magic.After graduating high school, Jessie Ralle goes on a trip to Las Vegas with some friends. The most important thing she has to worry about is being in the same car with her ex-boyfriend, Jimmy. Once in Las Vegas, she is seduced by the magical nightlife of drinking, gambling, and sex. At a casino, she meets a handsome ma [...]


    20. I think I would actually give this more of a 3.5. I had a hard time deciding on how I felt about this book. On one hand, I thought some of the parents were very well written, and I especially liked it as the ending was within reach. However, there were other parts of the book that I just didn't like, although I am not entirely sure why. I'm not a big Jimmy/James fan, even though I feel like I am supposed to be.Actually, I was a big fan of Russell/Russ, although it is probably best that I avoid t [...]


    21. DNFI tried I really did. I wanted to like this one but I just couldn't get into it. Not my cup of tea.BeforeMwahahaha this will be mine! As soon as it comes in the mail because I won it in a giveaway! Super excited for this one. I love Christopher Pike's books! Edit: Just got this in the mail and the first words out of my mouth were "It's mine! All mine!"


    22. Although I am a huge Christopher Pike fan, I am a little nervous after seeing a lot of negative reviews of this one. I'll have to see, hopefully it blows my mind like his other books have!


    23. I'll preface this review by saying that I've not previously read any Pike so I'll be making no comparisons to his other work.When presented the opportunity to listen to this novel, I jumped:) I'd been seeing the book around the blogosphere a bit and had heard great things about Pike. PlusWitches could I resist. I was not disappointed.Pike builds an incredibly interesting, albeit complicated, world that we ever so slowly gain more insight and more knowledge of as the book progresses. Although I m [...]


    24. I have been a fan of Christopher Pike for over 20 years, but this is the first book I've read from him since The Last Vampire. We broke up then because I felt that a majority of the time he got too out there for me, and there was no telling how intense, crazy or metaphysical the books would get once he had found his place in being an author and in the YA world. I was more interested in some of his more typical titles (Final Friends, Remember Me, Last Act etc) and I just kind of grew away from hi [...]


    25. I really wanted to like this book, but close to the end of the book I started to not enjoy the characters and the way it was heading. The idea of two realms simultaneously existing was interesting to me. Some of the explanations by Jessie's father were long, but necessary to understand the connections between Witch World and The Real World. However, when Jessie killed Kari I started to loose interest in the book. I felt Jessie's character completely changed suddenly and I didn't like it. The end [...]


    26. I didn't hate it but I seriously question a ghost writer in the background. I read a rough copy which was somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 pages, deliberating over witchy fight moves and all of Jessica's and Jessie's flighty thoughts. Character development was sparse. I never really liked any of the characters. The protagonist waxed on about the love between her and Jimmy but I found little evidence of love and/or commitment. In fact, the lack of character and relationship detail led me to f [...]


    27. Christopher Pike delivers once again! I loved it, and I am already dying for the next installment. Too many amazing quotes to include in this review, but here is an assortment:"It was unbearable, and yet I could bear it.""Once again, who was I to argue with a man who wanted to pay for my college education?""I had broken a promise to myself. That I would not sit down under any circumstances."


    28. The plot kept me reading but at times I felt it was very obvious that a male was writing this female character, which did pull me out of the story quite a few times. Overall intriguing premise and characters. 3.5 Stars


    29. Ah, Christopher Pike. Still crazy after all these yearsI've had this book lying around my apartment for a while, then I saw it had been re-released under the title "Red Queen" and there was a sequel, "Black Night." I remember not being too interested in reading this (strange, because I love Christopher Pike!) - first off, it's over 500 pages long, and the title just seemed dumb. The story starts off with recently graduated Jessie heading off to Vegas with all the other seniors, including her ex- [...]
