The Magician King

The Magician King (The Magicians #2) - Lev Grossman

This was a brilliant sequel that was just as funny and clever as the first book. It was nice getting to see things from Julia's point of view, and comparing her character arc with Quentin's. In fact I ended up liking Julia more than Quentin, though I do still like Quentin.

I loved Julia's online family/support group, and how it "wasn't a meatspace thing." Julia "opened herself up to them in a way she never had to anyone...She poured out her broken heart to the Free Traders, and they took it and cleaned it up and fixed it up and gave it back to her fresh and bloody and pumping again." It's great to see the the value of long-distance relationships being taken seriously. I can relate to feeling like the only people who really know and accept you unconditionally are people you'll probably never meet in person and who live across the globe. There was a time when I was like Julia, carrying around my "pocket friends" and living in my own digital world with them all day every day. It was great to see that kind of situation represented in a narrative.
