Opinion

From Library Staff

Like "The Magicians" but funny, self aware, and with an unreliable narrator.

A great selection for Harry Potter fans who are ready for something more edgy and intimate. For the first half, I thought In Other Lands would be a good selection for tweens because it was clean - no foul language, etc - but in the second half, it deals a lot of with gender and sex and other mature topics. The audio version is great; the reader really nailed it I love the voices. Elliott is so snarky and sarcastic; I rooted for him despite - and maybe because of - all his character flaws. At first glance, you may think this is a mermaid fantasy - and there are mermaids - but there are also elves, dwarves, harpies, unicorns and all sorts of magic in the borderlands, where Elliott haplessly finds himself, both physically and metaphorically. He learns to love, to forgive and forget, and to accept himself and his unusual life. This is an amazing coming-of-age adventure story and I hope there's a sequel! (copied from my Goodreads post).
