What is a bit tiring is that the characters are not developed in any meaningful way. They are cardboard cut-outs of comic book heroes.
The language is simple, without much poetry or wit. It’s like eating good fast food - you feel full bit youbwould not seek out the cook to give him a compliment on their cooking.
I was fascinated with fantasy fiction and Dungeons and Dragons in my youth, so I remember adding this to my "to read list" when i saw the thick spine on my school library bookshelf, all those years ago. Now, in my 30's, even more deeply-acquainted with sci-fi and fantasy genre's, I have finally made time to give this one a go. Glad I did!
Suited for teen and upwards: charming and mature enough to hold an adult reader's interest, and not too dark or bloody for younger readers.
I see that Feist has expanded his world of Midkemia into a of fantasy writing career which spans 9 sagas, potentially 30 years writing, written around many of the same regions and characters first invented in this book. Not sure I'll read all his books in my lifetime -- there are so many -- but Magician is, in my opinion, worthy of the praise and attention.
I am sorry for the people that do not read, they lead such boring lives.
Long live books!!!!!
