Oh man, I can't wait until more people have read it. I really want to talk to people about how it changes Quentin's character arc and aaaaaah, have to wait. ^_^

KBev I completely agree with you about the story lines. I haven't read The Magician King - just bought it this afternoon & can't wait to finish it! - but I figure it's the same as The Magician. I wish so much that he would have taken a little more time in Fillory and the battles and such. It would be two pages and then over. And I'd have to look back and read again what I missed! I.E. He killed a bumblebee - wait, there was a bumblebee? Haha. But, I still loved and it and like you wouldn't want him to tame his story in the slightest bit.

Molly G I discovered Doyle's "Praise" after reading (and reviewing) "Magician King" - and MK was my first thought in response to "In Praise"! If Grossman hadn't written MK first, I would have thought it was a deliberate response. (I do think he was addressing the same issues, without needing further prompting than their existence in the genre.) The thematic link is perfect. Thank you for writing about it so well!

Sarah Harian Finished today. While I loved Quentin's arc in this one, Julia's chapters were what really made this book. Her character was so beautifully detailed and tragic. And HOLY SHIT, the last 50 pages... I want to make a music box out of her and open it every time I need character inspiration.

Rachael Sherwood I would love to hear your thoughts on SPOILERS FOR THE WHOLE BOOK (view spoiler) Otherwise, I agree with you, I loved the book.
