I love this book so much. I crawled into it and lived in this world for three days last year when I had the flu. Then spent the next 7 obsessed with the idea of going to Narnia or Oz.

I guess I should give this one another try. I got the arc way before it came out and tried to read it and just couldnt get into it. I still have it so Ill have to try it again.

If you mean Harry Potter for adults as in highly inappropriate language with characters that are functioning alcoholics then I'm with you. Otherwise I wouldn't compare it to Harry Potter at all. But I love your work Lauren! -RM

I just finished the ARC of Grossman's follow-up, The Magician King. Not as good as the first, but definitely worth reading whenit comes out.

You have inspired me! I have been looking for something to read magic-wise and your messages sealed the deal. THANKS!

I'm a huge fan of your novels, and enjoyed The Magicians a great deal. There's another series, written in the 1980's (starting with
The Summer Tree
), that's very similar to The Magicians, but also does some wonderful things with Arthurian legend and some European mythologies. I finished reading the series this past month and it's honestly the best fantasy series I've come across. I think you'd enjoy its plot, for sure, but also the emotional depth of the writing. It's an amazing series, and I wish it got more attention. Best, William
