    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBThe Magus is a stunner magnificent in ambition supple and gorgeous in execution It fits no neat category; it is at once a pyrotechnical extravaganza a wild hilarious charade a dynamo of suspense and horror a profoundly serious probing into the nature of moral consciousness a dizzying electrifying chase through the labyrinth of the soul an allegorical romance a sophisticated account of modern love a ghost story that will send shivers racing down the spine Lush compulsive richly inventive eerie provocative impossibly theatrical it is in spite of itself convincing Thus wrote Eliot Fremont Smith in his New York Times book review when this magnificent novel was first published back in 1966 For me this novel counts as one powerful literary experience not only did I read the book but I also listened to the outstanding audio version read by Ni

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBMy students like to use the made up word unputdownable I always laugh at this I can always put down a book I can even put down this one The problem is I can't seem to stop picking it up againWe are thrown whether we like it or not into the addled frantic mind of Nicholas Urfe a man in the middle of a suspenseful psychological experiment The only problem is without telling us Fowles turns it into a suspenseful philosophical experiment as well We are left never fully knowing what is to come next what is real and what is unreal And we become so attached so dependent upon Urfe his reactions to the moments his arrogant assumptions about what is true and what is false that we become as mentally addled as he is and as incapable of leaving the invented world of the magus behind as he isMy mother managed to put it down and leave it down I drove on like Urfe deeper and deeper into the tormented abyss that is compulsion and an inability to accept freed

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBthis book fucked me up i suppose it could be defined as a psychological thriller but its very jungian steeped in metaphor and symbolism and eroticisim and mythology and shakespeare its also an intense love story of sorts the main character is a completely fleshed out real flawed person who you relate to and fear for and empathize with the premise is that this british guy gets a teaching job on a small island in greece soon after WWII ends and becomes intwined in the livesmind games of this man and his crewjust when you meaning the protagonist think you know whats really going on with these people it all changes and youre left baffled and curious and invested than ever in addition to being all of those things its a really fa

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBHere on Goodreads rather than judging a book by its cover it is always handier to judge a book based on what your friends and people you are following had to say about it after it had passed under their beady eyes I have 91 friends here on Goodreads and follow 6 people and of the 12 friends and three people I'm following only one Kingfan30 wrote a review Even the louacious members of the group have chosen to remain silent Karen Mike and PetraX not a jot or a scribble yet I can see all the ratings but around the book itself there is a sphinx like silence It is fair to

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBOh boy Here's the thing If you read this novel as a citizen of 2010 a member of our hyper speed uber connected modern society that navel gazes in 140 word bytes with little interest in true introspection The Magus will seem almost comical in its psycho thrilling Jungian dribbling plot and Baroue meets mod writing style If you dear reader consi

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBWe gravitate to mysteries The great unknown calls usThe craving to risk death is our last great perversion We come from night we go into night Why live in night?Straight from the biblical times temptation is the main moving force that pushes humanity to seek knowledge And who cares if our knowledge is a set of misconceptions?Living is an eternal wanting in the coarsest grocer and in the sublimest mysticWe live and we learn but there always is something that is left outside our cognizance so there always is a desire to come to the edge of the world and to look down into the abyss

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBI had no idea what this book was about The prose style was nice but the plot was completely unfathomable I decided about a third of the way through the book that it was one of the worst things I had ever read But due to some strange self flagellatory compulsion I told myself there was no way I was going to let it beat me so I slogged through teeth clenched until the end I found out later that th

    MOBI John Fowles Ú The Magus PDF/EPUB ´ Ú magus mobile, The Magus ePUBSPOILERSWell everything one might say about this book could be taken as a spoiler including this very remarkThe book is a pretty good read or it would have been if it had weighed in at two hundred or so pages shorter And given that the book is entirely a gradual denouement one has to admire Fowles's skill in controlling it over such a long span like a musician making a hugely long crescendoBut I guess in the end I didn't much like the book In the 'trial' scene a report is read out about the narrator of which the narrator himself admits a large amount of validity And I can't help feeling that it indicts and is supposed to indict the author himself The book is narcissistic in the extreme A narcissistic young man much immature than he thinks he is becomes the object of a psychological experiment? or intervention? conducted by a group of enormously wealthy people who stage manage all sorts of weird situations on a beautiful Greek island They include a pair of beautif
