This is one of the best books I've ever read and the one I'm most fond of. It shows a fascinating world that surprises you every time something happenThis is one of the best books I've ever read and the one I'm most fond of. It shows a fascinating world that surprises you every time something happens. It is like a puzzle and the story is always one step ahead of you and you never get to guess what really happens in the book. It is erotic and fascinating, full of mythology and symbolism, it's a psychological novel with so many meanings that you find and learn a different thing everytime you read it.
The whole novel is a metaphor for life and the society nowdays and a real lesson for each of us. Fowles uses mythology in a symbolic way and you have to guess what it stands for, what kind of lesson 'the magus' teaches about.
If you take it lightly 'The Magus' is a nice fantasy book which gathers different mythological characters and puts a show for you to enjoy, but if you try to understand the depths of this story and what it truly means you'll find yourself looking through a mirror at todays society and even ourselves.
This book is a masterpiece and every one of us should read it at least once....more
