    Inhaltsangabe

    In a secret world of forbidden knowledge, power comes at a terrible price....

    Quentin Coldwater's life is changed forever by an apparently chance encounter: when he turns up for his entrance interview to Princeton, he finds his interviewer dead - but a strange envelope bearing Quentin's name leads him down a path very different from any he'd ever imagined.

    The envelope, and the mysterious manuscript it contains, leads to a secret world of obsession and privilege, a world of freedom and power; and, for a while, it's a world that seems to answer all Quentin's desires. But the idyll cannot last - and when it's finally shattered, Quentin is drawn into something darker and far more dangerous than anything he could ever have expected....

    Great story but uninspired narrator

    Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Magicians, Book 1 gefallen?

    I wanted to have the book as I recently became hooked to the SyFy Series... anyways, the story only loosely resembles that of the TV Series, and that means I get two stories set in a similar world, which I quiet enjoy. Both are equally gripping.

    Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Mark Bramhall versuchen?

    Rather not. The narrator reads passages that are filled with tension in a very sleepy, anticlimactic manner. I will probably buy and read the other books, as this lethargic tone is annoying.

    Easily most loathsome book I ever suffered through

    I don't know whether Grossman considers his deeply unlikable characters "realistic", but if he does he must be pitied for his own character as well as that of all of his friends (and enemies, and teachers, and casual acquaintance, and pretty much anybody he seems to know.) I've certainly never read any book about magic that was as un-magical as this one, nor any book about friends as unfriendly, nor many books with as little plot, or story, or indeed anything happening - let alone originality - as this. What an utter waste of time and money. The narrator was okay, I guess, but since the story is only (literally *only*) about ennui, the narrator was pretty much forced to sound bored throughout almost the entire reading.

    interesting

    Really dark story - not your average coming-of-age magic. But there are some non realistic twists which diminish the fun.

    Fast paced, surprisingly dirty

    The story is very fast paced, but protagonist is a dirty teenager and it shows

    Narnia + Harry Potter, for adults only

    Stumbled across the TV series on Prime, loved it immediately and downloaded the books right after I finished the first two seasons. Really enjoyed the story, in both formats!

    ok but not much more

    not nearly as good as other fantasy books.
    story is quite shallow and not very thrilling. quite a straight forward plot. not a lot of unforseen twists.

    but ok for just some hours distraction

    Nothing is happening

    Great voice but the story is rather anticlimactic. I got soo bored so many times despite the potential.
