For more than two hundred years, the Owens women had been blamed for everything that went wrong in their Massachusetts town. And Gillian and Sally endured that fate as well: As children, the sisters were forever outsiders, taunted, talked about, pointed at. Their elderly aunts almost seemed to encourage the whispers of witchery, with their musty house and their exotic concoctions and their crowd of black cats. But all Gillian and Sally wanted was to escape. One would do so by marrying, the other by running away. But the bonds they shared, even into adulthood, brought them back--almost as if by magic…

Alice Hoffman: Practical Magic

Majdnem egy hónapig olvastam ezt a regényt, de ez nem az ő hibája.
A filmet láttam sok évvel ezelőtt, mondjuk tetszett, aztán mikor szembejött a könyv, gondoltam, előbb-utóbb sort kerítek erre is.
Nem bántam meg. Tetszett, hogy a cselekmény néha fölgyorsult, néha meg csak szépen, csendben, lassan történtek a dolgok. De főleg a hangulat, a mese, amiben olyan jól esett elmerülni.
Köszi, @Izolda!

Alice Hoffman: Practical Magic

Ez egy nagyon jól megírt mese, szerelemről, vágyakról, sorsról, végzetes találkozásokról. A sok kis mellékszáltól lesz az egész szerethető. Mert szerethető és varázslatos, az biztos.
(És igen: vigyázz mit kívánsz, mert valóra válhat!)

UPDATE: megnéztem a filmet. És szomorú vagyok. Az alapsztoriból sok mindent meghagytak és persze sok mindent kigyomláltak (pl. annak a végét, hogy mi történt a lánnyal, aki nagyon akarta, hogy a férfi csak őt akarja), ez kb. rendben van. De beleraktak egy csomó béna, nagyonhálivúdi baromságot. Amik nélkül ugyanúgy működhetett volna, sőt, még akár jobban is! /legyint
Tanácsom: inkább a könyvet!

My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.

There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for sure certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.

She was awake all night because every time she closed her eyes she'd see Gary so clearly it was as if he were there beside her at the kitchen table, in the easy chair, in her bed. She has a tape that keeps playing inside her head, over and over, and she can't seem to stop it.

Now whenever he kissed her, she cried and and wished she had never fallen in love in the first place. It had made her too helpless, because that's what love did. There was no way around it and no way to fight it. Now if she lost, she lost everything.

It's amazing the places that love will carry you. It's astounding to discover just how far you're willing to go.

Trouble is just like love, after all; it comes in unannounced and takes over before you've had a chance to reconsider, or even to think.

Pride is a funny thing; it can make what is truly worthless appear to be a treasure.

Deception and dishonesty are alien to him; sooner or later he'll have to take a crash course in the ABCs of bullshit to ensure that he won't get eaten alive out in the world he's so anxious to get into.

[He] had always shared a house with his grandfather, except for his brief marriage and the first eight years with his parents, which he doesn't remember out of sheer willpower.
