The Magicians - Lev Grossman, FantasyFans (huhtikuu 2019)

Kirja-arvosteluja

A lot of people seem to be comparing this to Harry Potter. These people completely missed the point. This book is a parody of the fantasy genre as a whole, and specifically the young adult section of it, bringing the gritty realism of modern life to a genre that tends to be much more light-hearted and happy ending oriented. The comparison with Harry Potter is obvious when the book starts off taking place in a magical school, but any fan of young adult fantasy will also see as much reference to Narnia and The Once and Future King, along with smaller allusions to other works of fantasy. Basically imagine a conglomeration of young adult fantasy where the protagonist is a disenfranchised youth (think Holden Caufield but slightly less annoying).… (lisätietoja)

Collegiate Harry Potter sans the enchantment and intrigue. I loved the premise, oft looked about for the plot, and detested the cold, embittered narrative.

Imho, this one is probably the best one of the trilogy. I kept waiting for Quentin to "find" hinself as a real magician and while he did well in the first two, he never seemed to quite live up to his capability. In this one he does and I thought it's about time. I realize that Grossman was evolving the character but it was not until this book that Quentin really comes into his own. There are lots of surprises here also, and I don't want to put in any spoilers, but Quentin returning to Brakebills, and the introduction a Chatwin descendant in the "real" world are among them. This one drags a bit in places but overall is a very satisfying conclusion to the series.… (lisätietoja)

While the writing was inconsistent, really liked the overall coming of age story! The 2nd half was definitely the best part.
