The Magician King (The Magicians, #2)

I am enjoying this as much as "The Magicians" -wonderful leaps of the imagination, and well written. I don't know why these two books have such low ra...more

The Patience Stone

Life After Forty (Christine, #1)

I really couldn't quite see the point of this book. It went on and on, at the same banal and everyday level, until the very last line. It is not so mu...more
