The Woman In White and I are still on a break and I continue to see other books. I think she's okay with it.
I'd give Magician three stars out of five. I was hooked from the excellent beginning but then it seemed to drag in several places. I also found it derivative. It's highly probable that any school of magic would have a History of Magic class, and it even mentions Harry Potter. But the other part - the clever part - reminded me so much of Narnia I couldn't stand it.
Holy eBook, Batman - I just realized I read the wrong book. I was meant to read Magician by Raymond E Feist and I read The Magicians by Lev Grossman!!!
