John Fowles expertly unfolds a tale that is lush with over-powering imagery in a spellbinding exploration of human complexities. By turns disturbing, thrilling and seductive, The Magus is a feast for the mind and the senses.

A deliciously toothsome celebration of wanton story-telling * Sunday Times *
A splendidly sustained piece of mystification * Financial Times *
One of those that's best read as a teenager, but once read you'll never forget it -- Katy Guest * Independent *
Suspend disbelief and enjoy a master storyteller -- Christie Hickman * Sunday Express *
