'Book of Omens: The Magical True Adventures ...'
By: Jon Jacobs
(Hardcover / 162 Pages / Spiral Staircase Publishing / ISBN: 0972452958 / $19.95)

Description:As a boy growing up in England, Jon Jacobs had dreams of stardom. 'The Book Of Omens: The Magical True Adventures of a Self-Made Movie Star' chronicles his extraordinary adventures in the underbelly of Hollywood as he pursues his dream to star in his own movies.

Verdict: Not exactly sure quite what to expect from this book, the whol emovie angle was a little 'weird' at first but as I started to read further I found I could relate to everything in this book ... and even begin to see the parallels in my own life! Forget about 'Harry Potter,' real magic is right here in our daily lives and it doesn't take much training to start to see it, as this book gleefully makes us all aware from nearly page one. Also the DVD that came with the book is great fun ('Lucinda's Spell' - written and directed by Jon Jacobs himself) is about witches in New Orleans, and is even more of a fantasy than the book! But it was totally fresh and actually much better than 'The Craft' or 'Practical Magic'!
