Jul 28, Danielle Steele rated it it was amazing. Ommgggg So let me start by saying yes this was a lonnngg book to read but it was worth it and it helped my last few raining days bearable.
The roller coaster ride was thrilling! Just when you hated a character you get the other side and then you felt sorry for them. Jaw dropping moments left me putting the book down to gain my composure. Definitely a great read. May 05, Tonia rated it it was amazing. Really good This was a really good read!! A lot of things went on with the characters and a lot of secrets that came out.

Passage Trilogy Series
I can't believe how some of these women were acting! Bryce grew up quick, I'm proud of him! There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Rowling, and just about every other fantasist who ever was T. But with Grossman, the comparison is even more unavoidable than usual. The goal, it seems, is to be so derivative, so plagiaristic in its parts, that their sum somehow circles back in an Ouroboros of meta-magic and achieves a kind of renewed originality. You should read these books.

But are they significant? Do we want future generations to consider this series a masterpiece of ours?
The answer, at least to me, is no. Fantasy is ultimately about invention—pushing the imagination so far it threatens to snap. And those littler fissures, those breaks with reality, is where magic is born. Not enough of the Magicians trilogy lives and grows in those weird cracks; too little of it is truly inventive. In the end, it basically amounts to a redrawing of Narnia in crazy colors.
In that way, Magicians really is a perfect series for our time, since postmodernism is defined by that kind of pastiche and self-reflexivity. Lev Grossman himself is certainly capable of greatness. Most of the spells took multiple whales to cast, and were designed to bend and herd large clouds of krill, and occasionally to reinforce the integrity of large ice shelves.
But to earn a spot next to a Lewis or a Tolkien, you need to do that everywhere. But of course he is. You feel it in certain passages: a huge, whale-size ambition. And the trilogy, especially this final book, does occasionally reach it. Not exactly.
