The Magus

The Magus - John Fowles According to the author introduction, the book is one of his first and less favourite works. It is also derivative of a renowned French novel, although it basically reads like a young man's facile philosophizing most of the time. Fowles considers it unfortunate that this is also the favourite work of his readers. I'm giving it one star for creating a pedarast character who is at all sympathetic. Won't be finishing it.
