The Friday 56: The Magicians

the-friday-56Hosted by Freda’s Voice, The Friday 56 follows these simple rules:

  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
  • Find any sentence (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
  • Post it.

At 56% in my eReader, from Lev Grossman’s The Magicians:

Viking, 2009, 402 pages (hardcover)

Quentin had expected to be knocked down and ravished by the sheer gritty reality of it all: going from the jeweled chrysalis of Brakebills to the big, messy, dirty city, where real people led real lives in the real world and did real work for real money.

Yes. Well. More about Quentin when it comes time for me to write a proper review on this one.
