Two words keep popping up in my mind constantly during this read: disdain and snarky. These describe Quentin perfectly and because of this, I seriously have a difficult time warming up to this series. Another two words, cold and bitch is how I feel about Julia. With no one to love, I'm left stranded between liking and disliking this book. There are some things that seem fun and interesting but the attitudes sort of get in my way. Although I guess I like it enough to give the nextA installment a go. Kudos to mr Grossman for the doctor who reference.

Cathryn Ferrara You know you have to read Magician's Land just to find out what will happen. I am glad you didn't hate this one. I hate Julia so I think that is a perfect description and I just always feel so sorry for Quentin as he never seems to get it (Julia certainly figured out how to win) and everyone else gets ahead of him but maybe he will finally grow up in the last book.
