Book Review - The Magicians Trilogy by Lev Grossman
Fillory and Further
Every fan of Lev Grossman's The Magicians wishes they could get their hands on a copy of the Fillory and Further books, the fictional book series that Quentin loves. Unfortunately, The Fillory books aren't real, nor is their author, Christopher Plover. But don't worry! Even though the exact books don't exist, there are many amazing fantastic books like The Fillory Books out there, and they're sure to satisfy your craving. In the books the five Chatwin children discover a magical world within their aunt and uncle's house called Fillory. On this list, you'll find a mix of classics and contemporary fantasy novels.

I really did enjoy this book which, despite its nearly pages, kept me reading avidly. There are no paragons of virtue here, and they all have their weaknesses and foibles as well as strengths of character and magic abilities. I have mentioned the occurrence of the number five — five undergraduates, five years of study, five books of Fillory — and it turns up in other ways, such as the pentagram tattooed on the backs of Brakebills graduates. The ultimate test for me of any book is, would I read it again?

Quentin isn't so much an anti-hero as a non-hero. And I wanted the reader to feel that. I wanted the hero-ness, or at any rate protagonist-ness protagonicity?
