Book Notes: The Magus
The Magus by John Fowles was my least favorite book on the Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list.
I could not stand The Magus! It may be the only book that I actually hate. Pompous nitwits running around a stupid island playing games with each other! And all the time spouting humanistic gobblygook about the death of God, or whatever they were prattling on about. It has a cult following, but I thought it was overwrought nonsense.
So no full-length review -- just my gut reaction.
