This was definitely not the book for me. I love magic and almost any book that has something to do with it, if it's a good story. And that's where the trouble comes in for me with this one: I could not like the story, I felt it wasn't very original and the main character is just not likeable. This is what would have happened if J.K. Rowling had made Harry an egotistical, whining, arrogant, lazy and never satisfied boy. The only character I liked was Alice. There was this other world, Fillory, which sounded completely like Narnia, including how they got there in the Magician's Nephew. The only reason I even convinced myself to finish this book is that I bought it.
