Perfect holiday reading for me is an intelligent, literary fantasy to transport me to another world, the way books by E. Nesbit and T. H. White did when I was a child, or as the Harry azithromycin generic india Potter saga did for my daughter. But the magic of J. K. Rowling’s books didn’t work for me. It wasn’t the plot I was too old for, but the approach and style, as I discovered when I read The Magicians by Lev Grossman. This is my ideal escapist fantasy read, a Harry Potter book for grown-ups.”
