I reviewed the final novel to Lev Grossman’s trilogy, The Magician’s Land, over at The Barnes and Noble Review. I loved it–it was a perfect departure from reality, which, I really needed at that point, and he does the difficult thing of finishing a trilogy well. Recommended also: reading this post from Grossman on what Fantasy novels are even for.
Recommended also also: Choire Sicha’s review over at Slate, which takes on some of the issues of the novels, and proposes a very smart, funny reading of the trilogy. A theory I will write more about soon.
