Short Attention Span Review

Lev Grossman’s The Magicians

Alternate titles include:

Why Hogwarts Needs an Ethics 101 Course

or

Magic is Real but Hunger and Disease are Still a Thing Because Wizards are Assholes

or

Harry Potter and the Great Gatsby

  Give it a read if you enjoy:

Complex magical systems
Unceasing disappointment in the world around you
Deeply satisfying knuckle cracking
Expressing your confusion and fury at the world via a sudden case of The Goth
Developing purposefully frustrating interpersonal relations
Pairing wine you’ll never drink with meals you’ll never eat
Geese
Your Dumbledore figure just not giving a single damn
Liking the world of Narnia ironically, but so ironically that you become sincere again
