Customer reviews

Interesting read, but it comes across as something of a Harry Potter clone, and Grossman spends far more time describing various types of alcohol than he does on developing some kind of decent plot. The prose is wonderful, as would be expected from a literary critic, but without any real goal for the characters until well into the second half, it all comes across as a bit pointless. Imaginative, but not mind-blowing by any more
