    Euryale: No magic, but I thought the tone and setting were otherwise very similar.

    The Chronicles of Narnia de 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?

    The Library at Mount Char de 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?"

    A College of Magics de 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.… (més)

    The Silver Nutmeg: The Story of Anna Lavinia and Toby de 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.

    The Once and Future King de 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.… (més)

It's Narnia... for grown ups. It's entertaining and amusing. There is a lot of strong language and quite a lot of sex and/or sex talk (although it's not graphic), so it's definitely not for kids. It's a pretty wild ride and I enjoyed it. ( )
  DragonsRReal | Aug 6, 2022 |
Unoriginal but a good, fun read. ( )
  MaryJeanPhillips | Jun 22, 2022 |
So conflicted. The writing is good but the protagonist is a whiny, self-involved shit, but he's a high school student so maybe that's fine. There's not a little unexamined sexism here, which I have precious little tolerance for right now. The quest stuff gets boring, until the end, when it gets really interesting. And I haaaaate stories that end with an artificial cliff hanger. It just makes me feel stubborn and want to refuse to be manipulated into reading the next book. ( )

A very enjoyable mix of St. Elmo's Fire Meets Harry Potter with a bit of Less Than Zero mixed in for good measure. I liked the writing style and the story. A good read. ( )
  Carmentalie | Jun 4, 2022 |
OK. Not enough action, too much depressing philosophizing which ends in hopelessness because he does not have Christ. Too much gratuitous sex. Obviously a prequel, a intro book, a set-up for the next. I won't recommend it if the next book doesn't improve. ( )

”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.
afegit per Jannes | editaDagens 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.
afegit per lampbane | editaBoing 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.
afegit per Shortride | editaPeople, 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."
