This book was very strange to read. I can’t tell if the author was trying to make fun of CS Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia (that would be sad) or making a tribute to them (that would be nice). It was extremely full of sad and hard things and drinking and drugs. It was not really uplifting at all. The basic premise is that some students are invited to a special university (hello Harry Potter) and learn lots more about their own world and other worlds. I didn’t enjoy it very much but was able to finish it. Won’t be buying any more of that author though.
