My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another fabulous book written by John Fowles.
This is the story of Nicholas Urfe, an English teacher who accepted a job teaching in a private boy’s school in the Greek Island of Phraxos.
By exploring the island during his spare time, he discovers a remote villa owned by Conchis, the magician, the Magus of this story.
His life will change forever after their first meeting. The story has hints of surreal threads with a plenty of psychological game among the main characters.
One you start to read this book, you won’t be able to stop reading, believe me or not.
