Puck (midsummer night's dream) appears and causes trouble for the charmed ones!

I've watched charmed almost since it started, and I decided to try and read some books on the series. I wasn't disappointed it kept to the personalities of the characters we already know and gave a few laughs. I chose this book because the blurb caught my eye, and I was interested in what was going to happen all the way through.

An enjoyable book with many favourite characters, including new ones, Puck is a delight. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

As Puck would NOT have it 20 Jun 2006
By Karl G - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Paul Ruditis is known for his work in TV-based novels, his recent being Alias, as well as his great sense of humor when it comes to writing said books.

The Brewing Storm was wonderful, showing off his amazing writing chops, along with amazing jokes and one-liners that made the reader love what he was reading.

In As Puck Would Have It, Paul brings on the fun and laughter again, along with, of course the magic and action. Puck is a literary character from A Midsummer Night's Dream, and he has an affection for animals and clothing in exchange for cleaning services. When a demon threatens the lives of animals in the circus, Puck enlists the sisters to help him solve the mystery and vanquish the demon. But is he playing another game altogether here?

This book is light-hearted and very unique, with clichéd yet funny one-liners, along with very fast-paced and moving action. Paul Ruditis throws in many funny jokes in this one, and the best part is his constant reference to modern popular culture. Jokes are made about Charlie's Angels, as well as Dobby from Harry Potter, making this book young and spiffy.

The sisters do not lack 'screentime' in this book. Paul balances the banter between the Charmed Ones and Puck evenly, and he makes the action at the end very smooth and the description vivid. The best part, however, would have to be the unique twists at the end of the book, a few of them, in fact, which are sudden, surprising, and makes the reader go, "How could I not have seen that'?

A must-read, especially for the readers who like twists and their endings to be surprising!

A Puck Me Up 9 May 2006
By Joshua Koppel - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Robin Goodfellow, A.K.A. Puck, the trickster fairy from Shakespeare is real. He has an argument with a demon. He can delay the demon but not stop him for good. Then he has an idea as to who can. Suddenly the three charmed ones each have a strange experience with an eccentric person. As coincidences aren't real, the gals put their heads together and decide that Puck must be the one responsible. No sooner does this happen then Puck confronts them directly. He says he has heard of them but wishes to test them. But all he will say is that they should visit the circus where there is an innocent in danger.

The three manage to get to the circus and begin poking around. At first they are almost overwhelmed with the task but then they start to hear things. Some of the animals at the circus have died mysteriously. Now another one has been taken ill. Could the animal be the innocent that Puck was referring to? With no better leads the trio of witches pursue that idea. Eventually they figure out what is going on and what Puck's game is. Once that is done solving the problem is just a matter of routine for the charmed ones.

A rather interesting story. I liked the new angle the story took. But the handling of Puck was a little clumsy. They know he was referred to by Shakespeare so he must be several hundred years old (Shakespeare is older than that) and later say he is almost as old as time. But other than that it was well put together. One of the better Charmed books of the more recent releases. Check it out.
A Midsummer Day's Mystery 29 April 2006
By Elizabeth Scully - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Puck, a powerful, shapeshifting trickster portrayed in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, gives the sisters a challenge. They must find an endangered innocent in the middle of a crowded circus--before it's too late. The sisters have no choice but to play along. Yet how much can they trust him, knowing his fondness for tricks and his ability to appear to be anyone?

As Puck Would Have It reads like a mystery novel, as the sisters try to uncover information about the innocent and the danger s/he faces. We see Phoebe, pretending to be a reporter, learning to ask the right questions. We see all the sisters snooping around the Circus, trying to look for clues without calling attention to themselves. Even when the sisters solve the mystery, a final twist awaits readers.

Overall, As Puck Would Have It is a great read. Puck is a dynamic character and more memorable than most. The sisters' interactions with him are excellent, reminiscent of Captain Picard and the omnipotent Q in Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's a comfort to know that, with the series ending, good books like this one are out there.
Mischieviously Puck-ish! 8 Aug 2006
By Norliza Ismail - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first time I actually pick out a book that's based on a real TV Series, and much to my delight, it's pretty much a really good tied-in book! I would recommend any other Charmed fan to pick up this book to read.

In "As Puck Would Have It", the Charmed ones stumble upon an odd character which turned out to be the being named Puck which literally a charcater referance from the "A Midsummer Night's Dream". He's pretty much trouble for the Charmed ones, bearing a mysterious task for them, bringing them to the circus to search for the Innocent he wanted them to save. The problem was, Puck didn't tell them directly who they are trying to save. In trying to look for their Innocent, They've stumbled onto the mysterious deaths of two of the circus's star animals.

Reading this book is like watching the series itself in the tv in your head. Pretty much well written and the plots are well thought. It had pretty much pulled me into this book, turning page after page once I have had started.
fun read, but lacks the Charming "soap opera" of the series 26 May 2008
By Kelsey May Dangelo - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The Charmed Ones meet up with the mischievous spirit from mythology, Puck, who sends them to the circus to save an innocent: an elephant. The animals are being killed by a mysterious demon, but Phoebe, Piper, and Paige are more concerned with the mysterious and troublesome antics of Puck. The Charmed community has a treasure in the clever and talented Paul Ruditis who spins a well-written spin off with twists and turns while being faithful to the series. The only problem is the story itself is pretty boring, without the soap opera drama that balances the demon-of-the-week stuff of the series. Leo is completely absent, too. Only the truly, deeply faithful Charmed fans should go for this one. Grade: B-
