Thank you kindly--I wish I had quit A Discovery of Witches long before I did. That yoga scene will haunt me for life!
Lori -- Thanks for the note. I don't know if you ended up getting The Magician King but I hated it. It's a toss up whether I disliked it more or less than the first one; some things were improved in this story (Quentin was only semi-maudlin rather than full-out bratty) but Grossman's treatment of the female characters was astoundingly awful. I just so hate that gritty must mean demeaning of women. I'm sure I'll read the third book because I'm curious about the arc but very frustrated that our hero gets everything for nothing. Grr.
Thanks for your comment/link regarding "The Treasure Is The Rose". Considering you're 34, you were probably reading it somewhat close to the time that I was. I'm almost 31. It's always nice to run into someone that remembers (in a sort of childhood haze) the same books that I remember. Also, interesting library.
