Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen. That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right. Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here. It's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.… (lisätietoja)

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

Simon is heading back to Watford a magic school for his last year. He is the Chosen One, at least that's what The Mage says. And he will be the one to save them all from the Insidious Humdrum. A creature that is sucking away the magic. After a visit from Baz's mother. Simon and Baz put away their issues to form a truce and with the help of Simon's best friend Penny they try to find who killed Baz's mother.

LOVED IT! This was at the very least, Harry Potter inspired. The coincidences are just too great for anyone to tell me otherwise. The school map on the inside of the cover looks like Hogwarts but with purposeful differences. Soccer field instead of a Quidditch field. A mote instead of a lake. The Wavering Wood instead of the Forbidden Forest. Stuff like that. So yes at first I wasn't sure if I wanted to read what seemed like Harry Potter fan fiction. Glad I changed my mind.

After you get past some of the obvious similarities the book really does start to veer off in its own direction. And the ending was interesting but I kinda figured out who the 'bad guy' was about halfway through the book. The best part of the book was the romance. Simon and Baz are an awesome couple and it was so well done. Can't wait to read the next book in this series. ( )

teen/adult fiction (harry potter-inspired fanfic world adventure-romance; LGBTQ hero with east-indian sidekick). I wasn't able to read this all in one sitting, but I did read it with as few interruptions as possible. Another great story from Rainbow Rowell. ( )

It was very interesting. It felt like the ending of a story, not a beginning, but that might be because i haven’t fangirl yet which is where the characters and stories are first introduced. The ship is wonderful and I’m definitely going to recommend this book to everyone. Super excited for wayward son!! ( )

It's Harry Potter fanfiction without Harry Potter. I really did enjoy this book very much. Although on the surface, it seems the author really got this idea from writing Harry Potter fanfiction, this is actually a much cooler take off than you might think. Ms. Rowell originally wrote a book about a girl who was a fan-girl for the Simon Snow book/movie series (much like Harry Potter). However, when she finished the book, she decided to bring the fanfiction within the original story to life and "Carry On" was born.

This story starts off in Simon's last year at magic school after many years of fighting monsters and wannabe evil over-takers on behalf of the The Mage (head schoolmaster) along with his best friend, Penny, and his girlfriend, Agatha. As the "Chosen One" everyone expected that he would defeat the evil Insidious Humdrum and save the magical world. Additionally, the world of the British Magicians was greatly divided after The Mage's reform of the political system and his take over of only magician school. Unrest between magicians seems poised to boil over into a civil war, with Simon, again, being the weapon of The Mage.

It may sound familiar, however, putting aside the fanfictionish stuff, I enjoyed the story on its own merits, which it had many of. That and I adored Baz. This story has many viewpoints and sometimes it took me a couple sentences to keep up with who was telling the story, but it was interesting to know what everyone was thinking. A great escape into fantasy with a bit of a romantic twist. I've already read the sequel "Wayward Son" which was equally as fun (American Road-trip, Anyone?) and am totally looking forward the the third volume due out in a couple months.

**SPOILER** I was disappointed that Simon never found out who his parents were although we, as readers, were privy to the revelation. ( )

If you've read my book Fangirl, you know that Simon Snow began as a fictional character in that novel.
A fictional-fictional character. Kind of an amalgam and descendant of a hundred other fictional Chosen Ones.
In Fangirl, Simon is the hero of a series of children's adventure novels written by Gemma T. Leslie--and the subject of much fanfiction written by the main character, Cath.
When I finished that book, I was able to let go of Cath and her boyfriend, Levi, and their world. I felt like I was finished with their story....
But I couldn't let go of Simon.

-Rainbow Rowell*

Review to come, and to include a likely very boring explanation of why I even read this in the first place.

*Typing out that quote really brought out my editing demon. Ms. Rowell would benefit greatly from finding even meaner editing demons. Demons who would teach her that paragraphs can have more than two sentences, and should almost always have more than one sentence. Also that ellipses are not colons. It is really rare for me to get annoyed with the physical structure of writing; I am not a grammar police type reader (and I am well aware of my ability to find typos in my own reviews no matter how many times I re-read them before posting). But there it is, for whatever benefit it brings the world. ( )
