I just finished reading The Magicians by Lev Grossman for the second time.
The book is nothing like I remember it.
If you watched the television adaptation on SyFy, you probably have a clear picture of what Penny looks like and sounds like in your mind. Most likely, you have strong feelings about Q and Eliot -- #bestfictionalcharactercoupleever
When I revisited these characters in their home base (the book), I surprised at how much I had forgotten about their original depictions.
Penny, for example, has a mohawk and is a punk (fashion-wise). And, Q and Eliot (book version) do not get romantically entangled.
So, which is better? TV or book?
Honestly, in this case, I can't say one is better than the other. They are two very different pieces of entertainment and are equally good.
Have you read The Magicians? How was watch it? What did you think?
