2023 Book Review: Someday, Sometime, a Genie Awaits

Someday, Sometime, a Genie Awaits by Andrei Saygo 

A Fantasy, Independently Published in 2022, 94 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • There are a few spots where we learn something off-hand about our main character’s past that feels jarring. I wanted to know about his past but I wanted more detail, I think. 
  • Too many unanswered questions. I like to be kept thinking but in this case I wanted more answers. Is there a sequel? I’d read the sequel! 
  • The jumps are shocking. They’re supposed to be, they are for the MC, but it makes the reader feel lost. 

What I Did Like:

  • The concept is fantastic. This was such a fun take on the genie stories! More modernized and adjusted to be nothing like the old “here’s the rules, make your wishes” style tale. 
  • Lions. I’m definitely the kind of person who would die treating a lion like a kitten so I loved seeing a lion character act like a kitty! 
  • Food descriptions made me hungry but I loved it!

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fans of genie tales who want a fast version with a fresh take.

My Rating: 3 Stars

  • Well done but I definitely wanted more!
