The Magicians af Lev Grossman (2009)

  1. 201
    Den hemmelige historie af Donna Tartt (middled, kraaivrouw, Euryale)
    Euryale: No magic, but I thought the tone and setting were otherwise very similar.
  2. 225
    Narnia fortællingerne af C. S. Lewis (Jannes)
    Jannes: The Magicians wolud not exist if it wasn't for the Narnia books, and is really a kind of loving deconstruction of Lewis' work. What could be better than giving the books that inspired it a try?
  3. 131
    Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders af Neil Gaiman (catfantastic)
    catfantastic: Read the short story "The Problem of Susan" included in this collection.
  4. 157
    Harry Potter og dødsregalierne af J. K. Rowling (sonyagreen)
    sonyagreen: It's like HP goes to college, complete with drinking and sex.
  5. 158
    Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell af Susanna Clarke (Anonym bruger)
    Anonym bruger: Magic is real in a world we recognize--Napoleonic England and contemporary New York.
  6. 40
    The Library at Mount Char af Scott Hawkins (TFleet)
    TFleet: Both novels are centered in the modern real world, but with a set of young adults who have magical powers. The novels are different takes on the question, "What would the modern real world be like if there were magic?"
  7. 40
    Little, Big af John Crowley (rarm)
    rarm: Fairy tale worlds that reveal a hidden darkness.
  8. 40
    The Chronicles of Chrestomanci: Charmed Life / The Lives of Christopher Chant af Diana Wynne Jones (Anonym bruger)
  9. 41
    The Book of Lost Things af John Connolly (rnmcusic)
  10. 85
    Harry Potter: The Complete Collection (Books 1-7) af J. K. Rowling (elleeldritch)
    elleeldritch: An adult version of Harry Potter (and Narnia), albeit with a different (but still interesting) magic scheme.
  11. 20
    A College of Magics af Caroline Stevermer (beyondthefourthwall)
    beyondthefourthwall: Teenagers suddenly plunged into the magical-boarding-school experience and, once their training is behind them, having to figure out who is trustworthy, what they need to do with their lives, whether they are being summoned into leadership roles, and maybe - just maybe - where their reality is coming from in the first place.… (mere)

    Every Heart a Doorway af Seanan McGuire (Cecrow)
  13. 20
    Shadowland af Peter Straub (Scottneumann)

  16. 10
    The Voodoo Killings af Kristi Charish (charlie68)
  17. 10
    Vita Nostra af Sergey Dyachenko (KatyBee)
  18. 10
    The Silver Nutmeg: The Story of Anna Lavinia and Toby af Palmer Brown (tetrachromat)
    tetrachromat: Both describe the reflections of certain pools of water as windows onto other realities. The Silver Nutmeg, however, is much less dark and aimed at younger readers.
  19. 10
    Phantastes af George MacDonald (charlie68)
    charlie68: Similar themes.
  20. 21
    The Once and Future King af T. H. White (wandering_star)
    wandering_star: I thought of making this recommendation when reading the magical education section of The Magicians, which reminded me of the first book of The Once and Future King. But the wider idea - that magical powers can't stop us from making stupid human mistakes - is also relevant to both books.… (mere)

I actually really, really enjoyed this book. I was expecting it to be leaning around 3 stars, but it really blew me away. I feel like this book was about what happens after you achieve everything you want and when there is nothing else to strive to be, no better, no one to beat and how it would affect someone brought up in a competitive society. Of course hi book has all the magic schools and books coming to life and boss battles and such (that were epic by the way), but I still feel like at it's core this is a book about getting bored when there is nothing left to be challenging or nothing else worth doing and I felt real akin with it. The third part of this book was the best by far and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. ( )

Teenager discovers a world of mystery, intrigue, and... actually, he just discovers magic. It isn't particularly mysterious or intriguing and he certainly isn't going to save the world with it. In reality, its just like everything else: boring and pointless.

Lev Grossman takes the wizard's tale and injects a bit of real life banality. Highly recommended for those bored by the Harry Potter's of the world. ( )

Enjoyed reading it. When it comes to fantasy books there are usually too many characters and storylines to follow, e.g Malazan Book of the Fallen, and connect together but in case of this book the plot is pretty interesting and yet straightforward and simple. As Snape put it, "As there is little foolish wand-waving here..." but rather more or less a well thought and well written plot. ( )

Started out loving the book and couldn't wait to know what was going to happen next, then I started to find the protagonist wearisome. But I kept going.
When I got to Part II though my interest really started to wane.

I gave it 3 stars which seems a bit high, because I knew I had to find out where the book was going and would not be able to stop reading it. It just seemed like it had the potential to be a 5 star book and just couldn't get there.

Or quite possibly I think that it is a solid 2 star book but deserves a whole extra star for having the phrase "angry, bloodthirsty giraffes" in it. ( )

I first came across this in a list of "books for people who have finished Harry Potter" or something like that. There were three books: this, The Lost Estate (which I haven't read yet), and The Secret History by Donna Tartt, which became one of my all-time favorites. In a way, this book's inclusion on the list makes perfect sense, as it feels like the elevator pitch for this could have been "What if Richard from The Secret History went to Hogwarts instead of normal college?". Grossman pulls off an extraordinary feat here, both tenderly embracing and savagely dunking on CS Lewis and JK Rowling. The gradually-built-up magical world feels vibrant and lush, and all of the characters are sharply drawn. Really, really interested to see where this goes from here. ( )

”Magikerna” marknadsförs som ”Harry Potter för vuxna”, men i själva verket är det en ovanligt vacker sorgesång över hur det är att lämna barndomen. Det var faktiskt bättre förr, när man kunde uppslukas helt av leken.
tilføjet af Jannes | RedigerDagens nyheter, Lotta Olsson (Feb 4, 2013)
 
This isn't just an exercise in exploring what we love about fantasy and the lies we tell ourselves about it -- it's a shit-kicking, gripping, tightly plotted novel that makes you want to take the afternoon off work to finish it.
tilføjet af lampbane | RedigerBoing Boing, Cory Doctorow (Oct 20, 2009)
 
It’s the original magic — storytelling — that occasionally trips Grossman up. Though the plot turns new tricks by the chapter, the characters have a fixed, “Not Another Teen Movie” quality. There’s the punk, the aesthete, the party girl, the fat slacker, the soon-to-be-hot nerd, the shy, angry, yet inexplicably irresistible narrator. Believable characters form the foundation for flights of fantasy. Before Grossman can make us care about, say, the multiverse, we need to intuit more about Quentin’s interior universe.
 
Somewhat familiar, albeit entertaining... Grossman's writing is intelligent, but don't give this one to the kids—it's a dark tale that suggests our childhood fantasies are no fun after all.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerPeople, Sue Corbett (Aug 31, 2009)
 
Grossman has written both an adult coming-of-age tale—rife with vivid scenes of sex, drugs, and heartbreak—and a whimsical yarn about forest creatures. The subjects aren’t mutually exclusive, and yet when stirred together so haphazardly, the effect is jarring. More damaging still is the plot, which takes about 150 pages to gain any steam, surges dramatically in the book’s final third, and then peters out with a couple chapters left to go.

That guy was a mystery wrapped in an enigma and crudely stapled to a ticking fucking time bomb. He was either going to hit somebody or start a blog.
Space was full of angry little particles.
He had no interest in TV anymore - it looked like an electronic puppet show to him, an artificial version of an imitation world that meant nothing to him anyway. Real life - or was it a fantasy life? whichever one Brakebills was - that was what mattered, and that was happening somewhere else.
No one would come right out and say it, but the worldwide magical ecology was suffering from a serious imbalance: too many magicians, not enough monsters.
"Never cook with a wine you wouldn't drink," he said. "Though I guess that presupposes that there is a wine I wouldn't drink."
