Chapters 1 - 6, group re-read discussion (7th - 20th March)

Post by Dee on Mon Mar 21, 2016 9:47 am

Chapters covered in the past fortnight were:


  • Brooklyn
  • Brakebills
  • Elliot
  • Magic
  • Snow
  • The Missing Boy

Upcoming chapters:

  • The Physical Kids
  • The Beast
  • Lovelady



Hello everyone, how are you all getting on with the reading? Please take a few seconds to answer the poll about how many chapters you think you can comfortably manage in a week before you get stuck in to the discussion. Apologies again for missing the first week of book discussion, I hope you don't mind that I've amalgamated the first fortnight.

Given the chapters we've read this week, the following wiki pages could perhaps begin to be fleshed out:

Quentin
Julia
Brakebills
Dean Fogg
Elliot
Penny
James
Fillory
Christopher Plover

I have a lot of thoughts on the first few chapters, but most notably; Oh my gods and foxes! I'd forgotten quite how whiny Quentin was at the beginning of the first book. "Le roi s'amuse", honestly! You're a mopey 17 year old, you are not (yet) a king, get over yourself, Quentin Coldwater!


How have you all found it? I was surprised by how many details I'd missed on my first read-through, and how many things make sense in the context of the whole series that I was missing when I read it through the first time. I'm very, very much looking forward to hearing Julia's story again.

I'm going to be honest; I plowed ahead and finished the first book this weekend, so honestly I'm chomping at the bit. Going back and doing a slower read of some of the later brakebills stuff (especially Q's last year, and Brakebills South) is probably going to be useful though.
