This series really hold up to as many revisits as you care to make. I've been through it several times now and have always been amazed by it, finding new things in it each time through. Mark Bramhall's performance is masterful. I've no doubt I'll be making another visit to Fillory!
New favorite series! Love the narrator. So excited to start the next book but so sad it's the last. Wonderful story.
The lead male protagonist simply isn't compelling. On a fundamental level, I didn't care what happened to him. The lead and secondary female protagonists were much more interesting, but the book crosses into unnecessary territory with specific scenes.
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
It seems to me as if the characters keep running in circles. They go on grand adventures and still end up being the same miserable people they always were. This is really getting monotonous. Event if the narrator is good, I don't think he can save this book.
