Unfortunately, the books read like a cross between the Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter, but with the main character replaced by Holden Caulfield and written by your standard issue basement dweller. I was honestly surprised when I looked up Lev Grossman and learned he had any formal literature training at all, I was so sure this series had been written by a teenager based on their Tumblr fanfics. a b c Prudom, Laura (February 8, 2016).

As my daughter in law promised, in interest, Book 2 surpassed Book 1 and Book 3 surpassed Book 2. Quentin and his friends continue to go on their quests and weave their magic. I am glad to have read them, but I would not recommend them to my other age peers. As Coming-of-Age books go, these are a bit more pop and glitzy, but I have read better.a b c d e Herstik, Lauren (August 7, 2014). "Lev Grossman on The Magicians' Land". Nerdist.

Nearly every single one of the characters was hate-able and incorrigible, which is usually something I like — when it’s done well. But I honestly just think that Grossman really missed the mark. Characters need to have *some* redeemable qualities, even if they are tiny. This wasn’t the case. The only remotely likeable character was Eliot, and he was much better in the screen adaptation.

[23] Lev Grossman’s The Magicians trilogy is the source material for the TV show of the same name, which has been one of my favourite shows during the last five years. I’d never read the books before the it started, and since I loved the show and had heard from a couple of readers that the books were not as good, I resisted reading them until the show ended earlier this year. Now that I’ve finished the trilogy, I can happily say that I actually really liked it! Because of the way I came to this book, I’ll spend an unnecessarily large portion of this review describing how it diverges from a show that was adapted from it, but which will always be the “original” in my mind.
