The Magicians

If you combined Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia AND Neverwhere together you still wouldn't be able to properly explain this book. It's the most complex literary fantasy I've read since Lord of the Rings.

Take a super smart teenager, tell him he's a magician, send him to magic college, and then then have him and his magic buddies discover a magical object that will transport them to another world, a world they thought only existed in their favorite children's books, then maybe, just maybe, you will have a small idea of what in the hell this book is really about.

It's a great read (although I kept comparing it to Harry Potter) although a bit too long for me. It was a real battle of the wills to read this all in one sitting (took me around six hours to plow through it). Definitely, a must read for fantasy nuts.
