The Magicians: Alice's Story Reviews

  • Elizabeth (Miss Eliza)

    With Alice's Story why I expected was something new, something different, in particular, what Alice experienced as a Niffin. Instead what I got was the entire first book of The Magicians trilogy told from Alice's POV. It was repetitive and lacked the power of the original book. What's ...

    In general, I liked this, but overall I don't understand who it is written for- other than super fans. This graphic novel sticks to the plot and characters in the book (The Magicians), so those who have only seen the TV show would most likely find parts of it confusing as the show devi...

    I've never been tempted to read Lev Grossman's The Magicians, but I may be now. *after reading reviews of The Magicians* Or maybe only if they make a graphic novel out of it. ...

    Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read early for an honest review. I've read The Magicians series (and liked them) and watched at least two seasons of the tv show (maybe three), so I'm very familiar with the series and was intrigued by the idea of this. I don't know what I ...

    I went to the trouble of doing a completely unnecessary reread of the Magician's before reading this. This was unnecessary as this was pretty much a straight retelling of the events of the first book from Alice's perspective. I probably would have enjoyed this more if I had NOT just do...

    For fans of Lev Grossman's The Magicians there a lot here. It tells the story of the first book from Alice's perspective. People not familiar with the novel, or at least the SyFy series based on Grossman's books won't get a lot out of this, but it's definitely a fun read for those who ...

    As a huge fan of Grossman?s original trilogy, this graphic novel has been at the top of my TBR since it was announced. Thank you so much to the publisher for granting my wish and sending me a copy of it. This book was so wonderful. Alice is such an endearing and beautiful characte...

    ?Alice?s Story? by Lilah Sturges, Lev Grossman, Pius Bak is ?The Magicians? told from Alice?s perspective thus showing us things that weren?t necessarily pointed out in the book originally. As a huge fan of the book and the TV series, this graphic novel was just what I...

    Alice's Story took me by surprise, really. The comic starts off slowly and it takes time to set the story on fire, but when it happens? It's pure blast! Alice Quinn can do magic and she wants to attend Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, where her brother used to study too before ...

    This is not quite an adaptation of Lev Grossman's The Magicians. It's the story of the novel, but told episodically and all from Alice's point of view. Watchers of the TV show will probably be confused by how different the characters look and how slightly their relationships vary (...

    I don?t have read the Magicians trilogy yet, but I?ve seen the TV shows and I like it a lot. This graphic novel takes back the story from the start but clearly focusing on Alice point of view. It sure has a lot of difference from the TV shows, not in term of major events, but more ...

    ?Josh, so disarmingly funny. Janet, wicked but always entertaining, and Eliot, larger than life.? This graphic novel started off fairly happy, but then things slowly got darker and depressing. That?s just how it always goes for this lot isn?t it? Still, I really liked Ali...

    Thank you to Netgalley and Boom! Studios for the review copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not change my opinion in any way. I read The Magicians well over 10 years ago and then reread it a few years ago. The first time I loved it. The second time I was more aware of w...

    4.5/5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed seeing through Alice's eyes for once. The artwork and storyboarding were beautiful. I really liked the drawing style of the artist. It?s great to be able to see all the characters appearances fully flushed out. Most of the characters weren?t what I e...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a free review copy of this book. Having never read the Magicians book series or knowing anything about it, I very much enjoyed this book! The story was really good as was the artwork. Not knowing anything about this series or the characters did not hinder ...

    This was a surprisingly great story. I've heard of the T.V. adaptions of The Magicians, but never watched the show. -- perhaps now I should start! This graphic novel got me hooked on all things magic. The world-building, the complex character development, and even the awesome spells we...

    I haven't read the series itself yet, but after reading the graphic novel, I'm excited to pick up the books. The beginning felt a bit disconnected between years and events and it felt like there were important parts missing from the story. The artwork is fitting for the genre, if y...

    [Disclosure: I received a free copy of this graphic novel from the publisher for purposes of a review.] I am a big fan of the television series on SyFy. This graphic novel is sort of the condensed version of Alice's story. The characters do not look like the TV characters. While the...

    I received an ARC copy of this graphic novel from BookCon. All thoughts are my own. I am honestly surprised at how much I enjoyed this! I purchased The Magicians trilogy a while back and it still sits on my shelf unread. I was wary of reading the graphic novel inspired by the books ...

    I really enjoyed reading this Magicians graphic novel. I haven't read the book series, but I have watched the television show. I wasn't a huge fan of Alice before reading this graphic novel. I really like how the reader learns more about her backstory and gets to see the events from he...

    One thing you learn about magic is that just when you think you know what it?s all about ? it finds a way to surprise you. I?m a tad obsessed with Lev Grossman?s The Magicians. The only problem is that the best intentions in the world have so far only extended far enough to b...

    Wow. I loved this story. It was everything I hoped for and more. To see the events from Alice's perspective was something new and unexpected, that I didn't know I desperately need in my life until I read through this graphic novel. Authors took everything that was amazing about...

    "Fucking Fillory, man! Walking trees!" "Now that's ent-ertainment!" Alice travels through the wilderness, knowing exactly where she wants to go but only able to guess how, making her way to Brakebills, a university for magicians. This graphic novel is the story The Magicians by ...

    Thanks to Archaia for the ARC at BEA 2019! I've never read or watched The Magicians, although a good friend of mine has been bugging me to for a while. I grabbed this because of him. I loved it. The artwork is amazing, the story it tells is incredibly well done and I'm now hooked on...
