    Awesome book! It combines Rowling with Tolkien and Lewis to excellent effect, providing an original storyline and well-developed characters which are easy to relate to. I cannot reccomend this enough to those who are bored of classic heroes saving the day.

    Defiantly not for everyone.

    I read the first book(The Magicians) and found the first part interesting, the second half was one of the most frustrating reading experiences i have ever had.

    The only plot of the book is that “magicians can do anything, so they are bored”. There are a lot of references to other works, some are good, some interesting

    I liked the first book so much that, as soon as I finished reading it, I read it all over again. Then I read the other two, which in my opinion, are not quite as good, but still excellent. The Magicians is a coming-of-age-in-a-magical-fantasy-world novel for adults. It will make you think about your own youth and every fantasy escapist dream you ever had---then it will break your heart.

    I wouldn't call this story epic. It just doesn't feel like an epic fantasy.

    Other than that, I loved the first and the third of the books but hat to grit my teeth through the second one. The characters and the themes are very easy to relate to, it's almost like a mirror with a magnifying effect or more like the author gives a big middle finger to the reader, and knows he can get away with it because he's brilliant.

    Well, perhaps there was a little too much sass for my taste. There were some cringe-worthy dialogues.
    I'm rambling, so I'll stop.

    It took me some time to get into but I think that this series is fantastic. It left me feeling a bit sad when I finished it, that painful nostalgic feeling one gets when a book is finished and I need to return to my reality ... I see bits of Narnia, HP, and His Darkest Materials in this yet the author does manage to pull off something unique and not completely derivative. I recommend this to anyone!!!

    Good series overall, but certainly not a masterpiece. Some of the characters actions are incredibly frustrating at times, which is expected given that this is based on a coming of age and character development based plot. With that said, I still felt a lot of the characters were TOO one dimensional. Others had very little purpose.

    The plot was decent, but not particularly complex or even surprising. In the second book, it seems almost that one half of the plot had no real purpose.

    Another small annoyance is that the magic system never really shows off how awesome it can be. More than that, the system seems very inconsistent, with one moment a character using it to find ways to do ridiculous feats (such as space travel as a hypothetical example), but there are other times where they seem somewhat useless, and purposely avoid using their abilities.

    Hi everyone!

    Would love if you guys check out my new book "The Hive: The Matriarch Saved"

    Here's a short summary:
    When Earth is invaded, Evonne witnesses her family’s deaths and wakes up imprisoned in a room with other women of childbearing age. They undergo torturous experiments before being rescued by seemingly human alien warriors on a reconnaissance mission. Evonne’s ordeal has unleashed new abilities in her, powers she can’t fully understand or control.

    Would love to know your guys thoughts :)

    You can get a sneak peek of the first chapter on my website: http://jyobooks.com :)

    One of the worst books I have ever read. Lewd at points and completely un-creative. Definitely skip.
