Publisher's Summary

The lost literary origin story of best-seller Lev Grossman - including a new foreword about how and why he wrote his first novel: "It is the intense, concentrated, boiled-down essence of the unhappiest years of my life".
Twentysomething Hollis Kessler languishes in a hopelessly magician-less world (with the exception of a fleet-footed nymph named Xanthe) not too far from where he graduated college. His friends do, too. They sleep late, read too much, drink too much, talk too much, and work and earn and do way too little. But Hollis does have an obsession: There's another world going on in his head, a world of excitement and danger and starships and romance, and it's telling him that it's time to stop dreaming and get serious.
This republication of Lev Grossman's debut novel, Warp, shows the roots of his Magicians hero Quentin Coldwater in a book that is for anyone (and everyone) who has ever felt adrift in their own life.

Don't waste your money!

What would have made Warp better?

Anything but the rambling nonsense it was.

Has Warp turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really

Any additional comments?

Huge Magicians fan and this was absolute garbage. Just a bunch of ramblings about a bunch of slackers. Only the second review I've ever given but had to warn folks.

Bad doesn't even begin to describe this book

powered through about 2 hours and really wish I hadn't. It was like watching grass grow, accept you would care more about the grass.
