Accompanied by his oldest friend, Julia, Quentin sets off-only to somehow wind up back in the real world and not in Fillory, as they'd hoped.
As the pair struggle to find their way back to their lost kingdom, Quentin is forced to rely on Julia's illicitly-learned sorcery as they face a sinister threat in a world very far from the beloved fantasy novels of their youth. Toon meer Toon minder Recensie s Lev Grossman's novel is full of magic Lewis' pat Christian allegory.
Fabulous fantasy spiked with bitter adult wisdom-not to be missed. And The Magician King isn't just Quentin's tale-he is accompanied by Julia, his childhood crush, who wasn't accepted into magic school and went mad as a consequence.
Now, broken and bitter, Julia's story puts the magic of The Magicians into a larger context, showing us that the orderly, neat magic of Brakebills College and its gentlemanly wizards are just one edge of a much larger, weirder tapestry that spirals off to the origin of the universe and the great powers that lurk there.
Flipping back and forth between Quentin and Julia's story, The Magician King is at once an existential exercise that angrily shakes escapism by its shoulders and demands that life have a purpose, and a story about extraordinary deeds, heroism, magic and love -- all the stuff that makes escapism go.
If you haven't read this series yet, I strongly urge you do so It is a clever and engaging deconstruction of portal fantasy of the Narnia ilk The characters remain interesting, sympathetic and nuanced. One of the lovely things about this series is watching Quentin evolve from depressed teen to clear-eyed man.
Battle scenes are laid out with vivid, near-storyboard detail. Grossman brings the story home on a very satisfying chord.
The chorus: We are all magicians. Life, like magic, gives back only as much as you put into it. It takes hard work, it hurts, and you have to be ready to fail.
But deep within us all lies the power to enchant the world. This third book, at turns a heist story, a meditation on the act of creation, and an apocalyptic disaster tale, continues the adventures of main character Quentin Coldwater. It mixes genre deconstruction with psychological realism, full of self-aware figures who are cognizant of all the tropes of fantasy fiction, while at the same time working to fulfill those tropes or push against them. Writing, like magic, is a craft, and Grossman performs it oh so well.
Endlessly fascinating. Fantasy fans will rejoice at its publication.
The final volume will please fans looking for action, emotion, and, ultimately, closure. Fans of the trilogy will be pleased. Lev Grossman proves again that the costs and consolations of creation—both of Fillory and of this conclusion to his trilogy—are mighty forces.
Literary perfection for those of us who grew up testing the structural integrity of the backs of wardrobes. Also, damn.It is a clever and engaging deconstruction of portal fantasy of the Narnia ilk Quentin Coldwater's life is changed forever by an apparently chance encounter: when he turns up for his entrance interview to Princeton University, he finds his interviewer dead — but a strange envelope bearing Quentin's name leads him down a very different path.
Quentin plunges deep into a secret world of obsession and privilege, a world of freedom and power; and for a while, it seems to answer all Quentin's desires. Grossman can.
And The Magician King isn't just Quentin's tale-he is accompanied by Julia, his childhood crush, who wasn't accepted into magic school and went mad as a consequence. It mixes genre deconstruction with psychological realism, full of self-aware figures who are cognizant of all the tropes of fantasy fiction, while at the same time working to fulfill those tropes or push against them. The humour is well-deployed and understated.
