    One thought on “Witch”

    1. Such a long time ago I read this (I was 14 - my God, I feel old!). It stuck in my mind as one of the ones I loved the most. There was a compassionate feel about the story, which became apparent towards the end. I remember really liking the female lead and her green eyes, lol! I was a huge Christopher Pike fan. His other titles that stick in my mind are Remember Me (I think there are three books) and the one about the female Vampire - The Last Vampire, was it?I'm not sure how the books will read [...]

    2. I brought this book with me last week when I went away on Christmas vacation to a cabin in the middle of nowhere and I'm so glad I did. It's the only Pike book on my shelf I hadn't read yet - I don't even remember where I got it; I always try and pick his books up where I can find them - and it has rekindled my love for his storytelling. He is so talented at crafting suspenseful and unpredictable plots that get me turning pages faster than most authors can, YA fiction and Adult fiction alike. Hi [...]

    3. 'Witch' was a book I read in my teenage years, and held onto it because of the great involvement I used to have with Christopher Pike. I read this story again to see if I could get anything more out of it, before I give it away.I like Pike's writing techniques, in the way that he writes short-ish stories of around 200 pages, and within the page-constraints he develops an involving and believable story. The characterisation is cleverly squeezed into a few paragraphs, as well as using passages fro [...]

    4. I think it was a fortune cookie that once informed me, "Man often meets his destiny on the path he takes to avoid it." Omnious, yes. Perhaps I should have thrown out that leftover szechuan chicken. Anyway, Julia would have done well to heed the words of this wise and tasty (albeit mildly stale) dessert treat. Who's Julia? Our main character. She's a witchd a total Hufflepuff of a witch too. Not that this is a bad thing. Even though I am a Slytherin, I totally respect Hufflepuffs and their just-t [...]

    5. Julia is a girl gifted with a healing touch and the power to glimpse the future. One thing her mother told her never to do is look into a pond with the moonlight shining upon it. She's intrigued by this statement and gets trapped into seeing the future because of it. When she sees a vision of her best friend's boyfriend, Jim, shot and bleeding to death, she does her best to keep him out of danger. But then another friend is shot while witnessing a gas station holdup, and Julia and Jim set out to [...]

    6. When I was in middle school I thought this book was the best ever. Then I found the book again and read it before deciding if I was going to let my daughter read it. I did not like it as much. I guess my point of view of what makes a book good has changed over the years. It is not too bad. I do not think that the characters speak the way real life people would speak. The dialog was a little annoying because of that. I think it is good for the age group it was intended for.

    7. Such a sad story. It showed the relationship between the mother and daughter. Very strong story and I am not embarrassed to say that it made me cry in the end. A must read!

    8. Don't remember anything about this book. Just remember that I enjoyed it. I was probably in the 5th or 6th grade.I must find a copy so I'll know what I liked about this.

    9. Number 32. A book from my childhood. This was my favourite book growing up and it is still as good now as it was then!!! Love it!!

    10. A childhood reread.This one was very much a miss instead of a hit. I remember now that this was always the case but unfortunately I can't remember which ones I didn't like on the first reading, so I'm going to have to reread them all and find out the hard way.For Witch, although action-packed, was rather dull. I think, for me at least, this is down to the fact that the protagonist, Julia, is, quite frankly, a horrible person. I felt no empathy for any of the characters and a lot of it was rather [...]

    11. spoil spoil spoil spoil do not read if you have not read the book! My favorite part was when Julia was trying to save Scott's life and they both ended up floating above their bodies and conversing as souls (attached to their bodies by soul umbilical chords). After all the chaos and tension that had ensued (characters running around similar to slapstick comedy chase scenes except with fire and gore) it was a moment to breathe and take a step back. Also I was shocked when I found myself in the mid [...]

    12. I learned a teen named Julia is a witch. She has the ablity to heal poeple , look into water when the sun is shining and go to verious places , can also look into water when the moon is shining and can see the future. Her mom died 2 weeks before Amy left for Los Angeles and she's still moring from it. She has friends named Amy , her boyfriend Jim , and the boy Julia likes is Scott. Before Julia's mother died she gave her some much needed advice , not to look in the water when the moon light is s [...]

    13. Julia is a witch, with the ability to heal people and see the future. Her mother recently died and Julia misses her, she has friends but she is still lonely. One night, she has a vision of murder and she tries to prevent it. Jim is the potential victim, also her friend Amy's new boyfriend. He is gorgeous and kind, so Julia crushes on him. The beginning lead me to believe the story was heading in one direction, Julia preventing Jim from being killed, but veered off in to a totally different direc [...]

    14. This is an amazing book. This book is about a girl that has a healing power like her mom. Julia’s mom dies and tells Julia to never look to look at water that had moonlight reflection. Julia can also see visions if she looks into water that has sunlight reflection. She sees a young mad that died in her arms. Later she meets a young boy named Jim. Jim is Amy’s new boyfriend. Julia falls for Jim but she knows she can’t have him. One of Julia best friends named Scott got shot right in front o [...]

    15. Almost everything I've written is contemporary, but has a slice of the psychic, magic, or otherwise supernatural to it. I remember quite clearly the first book that I read that did this, and reading it was a revelation.This book was pretty much the first book that did a present-day character with that something extra that I read. I loved it. I devoured it and re-read it and then hunted down everything and anything I could find that was remotely similar. It started me on a whole new genre - befor [...]

    16. Christopher Pike is an author I have a love/hate relationship with. Some of his stories I love and would read multiple times and then there are titles like "Witch". I liked the beginning and end of the book but the middle was ridiculous and stupid. I originally thought the story would revolve around Julia trying to save Jim's life but instead it takes a strange turn into gun fights and vigilantism. Julia made some stupid decisions and so did Jim. The only character I liked all the way through th [...]

    17. This book really got me turning the pages. I liked the premise that Julia was a witch who had certain healing powers. Although she comes across as a bit cold and aloof in the beginning, she is later shown to be a strong, sympathetic character. I liked her relationship with her mother and her friends, Amy, Scott and Randy. The main fault I found with this book was the relationship between Julia and Jim. Jim was Amy's boyfriend and he falls in love with Julia the moment he sees her. He struck me a [...]

    18. I was not a huge fan of this book. I started reading it trying to make my goal for the end of the year and just couldn't get into it. I eventually struggled my way through. Don't get me wrong it was interesting and I think lots of people could get into it. But it wasn't my cup of tea. I like Christopher Pike. And yes I know this is for younger people. But I rated 2 stars.

    19. i havent read this book in 8 years but i remember loving it. i remember crying my eyes out lol i still have the book i never could brinb myself to get rid of it. i should give it another read see if it still speaks to me the same. this is a good book i would recomend this fo any teen who likes the supernatural!!

    20. I love these teen scream novels. This was a really good story. It's about a girl who sees a vision of the future in which someone is killed. It's her attempt to stop the event, and deal with the aftermath. There are so many side twists to this story it was really fun to read. Ultimately it's a story about vengeance and sacrifice, and I really did like it.

    21. Bought a bunch of Pike books recently wanting to recapture my teenage years and discovered that I hadn't actually read this one before. Pike isn't afraid of making his protagonists deeply flawed, and rereading them now definitely is making me realize just how deeply. But even though I don't sympathize with them as much anymore, they're not any less compelling.

    22. I reread this as part of the preparation for the podcast Steph and I did for GA. This one did not hold up as well as I think some of the others do so many years later. I liked it, honestly I didn't really remember most of it, so it was like reading it for the first time. But, I didn't think the story was super strong.

    23. This is a very odd book? It's not what I think of when I think of witches, and seems unnecessarily gory and intense with an insanely downer ending. Plus the writing is pedestrian and the characters are sketches. But it's basically a YA book from before that was a genre, so I'm not really sure what I was expecting.

    24. I read this when I was 10 or 11. I absolutely loved it. The main character, Julia, was so magical to me, and the story always struck me emotionally no matter how many times I read it. I haven't picked it up in years, but I have very fond memories of it. The five-star rating reflects my young self. I almost don't want to read it in case it's lost its appeal.

    25. I've read this twice, I read it as a teenager and then again as an adult. It wasn't as good as I remember, but some of the description is brilliant and actually stuck with me between reads (mostly the image of the lake in the forest). Really quick read, and I thought it was one of Christopher Pike's better novels.

    26. I think this book is absolutely fabulous , I started reading this three years back and it's sort of become a tradition to read it every summer You can read this book over and over again and still have those gut wrenching feels . You never get tired of the plot . To be honest , once I start reading it again I forget what actually happens cause I get so into it :) This book does not disappoint .

    27. Christopher Pike was a really good at bringing the character's alive in this book. I really felt drawn to Julia's problems and was rooting for her. Although I wish she wouldn't have went after Jim and let Amy get the man. The ending was very sad and I wished it could've ended differently for all those involved.

    28. I devoured this book. It was a little more god-centric than I thought and would have liked it to be. Overall, it was an excellent thriller. It's one of those books that will keep you up all night just so you can see what happens next.

    29. I'm not completely convinced by this book Teenagers handling weapons that easily, murdering someone without emotion ? The whole plot felt a bit flat to me. The concept of the plot was great, it just could have used a bit more character and depth to it.
