The Magicians by Lev Grossman

magiciansThis book scared the crap out of me- I have no idea what to think about it but I couldn’t stop reading it. Much like Kelly Link’s short stories. It’s a response to Harry Potter, Narnia, E. Nesbit fantasy- Brooklyn style- meaning, alcoholic, depressive and keeps talking about the green of the gowanus canal. Please read it so we can talk about it.

  1. I am enjoying this very much. Charming but not precious, clever without taking itself too seriously. Pokes fun at Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe without being dismissive. I am looking forward to my flight because of this book. Thank you!
