Literary Friday: The Magicians

Literary Friday: The book that I have been reading this week is "The Magicians" by Lev Grossman. I chose this book because NPR touted it as Harry Potter for grown-ups. It could have been a wonderful fantasy, however the only thing that makes it grown-up are the intimate scenes and obscene language, which I don't think any deceit adult would use. I wish they would put a rating on books so I would know that it is something I don't want to read.
The author seem to take things from Harry Potter and Chronicles of Narnia and married them into his story. This is actually a series but I think I'm going to stop at book one.

Well thanks for the heads up about the language because I probably would have read it given the comparison to Narnia and Harry Potter. I don't know why writers do they use language like that in their everyday lives? Sorry I'm so late visiting.....the flu has really been horrible, and I've had it for two weeks.
