Ugh This was two books in one The first book showed promise, but the second book devolved into a non plot and misogyny. Good spin on the fantasy story by bringing programming into it You ll especially like it if you like older computers.This book is actually two books The first one is a good story on it s own The main character doesn t really develop and learn much as a character, I guess his big moment of development is figuring out how to turn spells into a programming language.The second book has a little bit better character development, but not much to the story I didn t even think there were going to be Good spin on the fantasy story by bringing programming into it You ll especially like it if you like older computers.This book is actually two books The first one is a good story on it s own The main character doesn t really develop and learn much as a character, I guess his big moment of development is figuring out how to turn spells into a programming language.The second book has a little bit better character development, but not much to the story I didn t even think there were going to be resolutions at the end, but then there were in the last few pages Seemslike it s setting up for a bigger conflict in the next book, I don t even know if there arebooks though.So many mistakes spelling missing letters for example, grammar missing quotation marks, scenes sometimes just run into each other, at least once they said the wrong character was talking Lowered my rating by one star because of how bad it can be If you re the type that this really bothers you, you may not be able to read this book.Very similar to the book Off to be the Wizard, if you liked one you ll like the other They both bring modern computing into fantasy magic The difference being, in Wiz Biz there was magic that they made a programming language out of, but in Off to be the Wizard they used programming to create magic Maybe this wouldn t be a bad book for someone with a taste for fantasy who is just beginning to read chapter books. How a Master Programer became a Master Spell Writer.Walter Wiz Zumwalt is a bit out of sorts You see his day started off as normal where he went to his job fixing all the mistakes that the other programers made It was a bit of a slog but someone usually came up with a entertaining way to make a program crash and Wiz usually came up with a equally entertaining way to fix it This was also how Wiz got his nick name as it seemed sometimes he was working magic to get things working again Life w How a Master Programer became a Master Spell Writer.Walter Wiz Zumwalt is a bit out of sorts You

program crash and Wiz usually came up with a equally entertaining way to fix it This was also how Wiz got his nick name as it seemed sometimes he was working magic to get things working again Life was normal and Wiz was content with computers since it meant that he didn t have to deal with people Unfortunately for Wiz the Universe had other plans.One minute he is untangling a stubborn line of code and the next he is dodging fireballs, backing away from the still smoldering corpse of the wizard that summoned him and being dragged to safety by a woman that he feels strangely attracted to even though he has never met her before What Wiz will find out is that he is a variable in a war that has been going on between the forces of light and darkness for a very long time This world runs on magic and he has none Strangely enough though a magic spell looks a lot like a computer programThough the premise of this book isn t exactly original it still manages to tell a entertaining tale of a fish out of water or in this case a fish finding itself in water and not quite knowing what to do with it I liked this story as most of the characters actually seem like they could be real people They have their flaws and there failings but they try to work through them and don t instantly always do the right thing As Wiz struggles to find his place in his new world he eventually realizes that his actions have consequences and he has to take responsibility for those consequences, even if he isn t directly responsible for what is going on The book moves at a good clip and doesn t really have mood swings from comedy to dead serious like the wizard in yurt series or the rouge agent series All in all a good read if your looking for a fantasy fish out of water book that is a little different from the norm.ma.c A computer programmer ends up in a fantasy setting where magic behaves like a programmable computer It sounded really good to me, because I like both fantasy and programming, but it

hero or group of heroes going up against impossible odds, fighting for freedom, love, truth and puppies, but I ended up with a likeable hero who is forever trying to solve problems he caused himself, by his alien way of doing magic Maybe that s a realistic take on the life of a programmer, but if I wanted realism, I wouldn t be reading fantasy Denne boken, eller skal jeg si disse b kene, er utrolig morsomme Jeg er veldig glad i humoristisk fantasy og synes denne gj r seg godt i det selskapet Den er skrevet p et ganske lett engelsk, hvor jeg hopper litt over noen ord og uttrykk, men som var avslappende lese Den er spennende, med b de mange uventede og mange fine yeblikk innimellom Wiz klarer seg, selvf lgelig Men etterhvert m han forholde seg til andre trollmenn og deres politikk og

Compiled Both are set in a land of magic, an intrepid computer programmer was summoned there and quickly determines that he can write code for magic spells Things go awry and a Silicon Valley solution seems to be the only way out Geeky fun This is a fun amalgam of computer games, programming, and fantasy Not all of it makes sense, but that doesn t stop it from being entertaining I particularly enjoyed the computer in jokes Having worked in the field for over 30 years, I couldn t help but laugh at many of the comments, especially the ones at the beginning of each chapter Well done. {Book} ⚡
