Green Witch by Alice Hoffman

Title: Green Witch


Author: Alice Hoffman


Published: New York : Scholastic Press, 2010


Pages: 135


Series: Sequel to Green Angel


First Line: "What you dream, you can grow."


Summary: A year after her world was nearly destroyed, sixteen-year-old Green has become the one villagers turn to for aid, especially to record their stories, but Green will need the help of other women who, like herself, are believed to be witches if she is to find her best friend and her one true love. (Taken from book inside)


Review: It's been a few years since I've read Green Angel the book before this one and at first I thought I'd have some trouble with Green Witch but it wasn't like that at all.  I think that if you haven't read Green Angel then you'd be alright reading Green Witch but for the best effect you'd be better off reading Green Angel first.


As far as Green Witch went, I really enjoyed it.  It's written quite differently to the majority of other books I've read but that just makes it all the more interesting.


I loved Green's story and I loved hearing other stories of the other 'witches'.  The characters were all really interesting and I just really loved how different Green was to any other book characters.


I really love Alice Hoffman's writing style, which is probably why I've read a lot of her books.  She writes things in a really symbolic and expressive and incredibly descriptive way.  It's hard to explain, you just have to read it yourself.


I would say that Green Witch is a short, quick read that along with Green Angel makes a really good book.  If you haven't already read Green Angel and Green Witch, they're definitely worth a read as they are really different.

  2. I absolutely loved Green Angel and really liked Green Witch. Green Witch though felt like a slightly different book, maybe because it wasn't as abstract as Green Angel. I hope that makes sense. But I too love Alice Hoffman and her books and writing style.

  3. This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read and I read a lot. This book has so much emotion and meaning. The writer really knows how to make you feel the emotions that the character is feeling.
