It All Ends Tomorrow. Now what?

What will Harry Potter fans do now that, as the posters for the movie starkly proclaim, “It all ends July 15”?

NPR asked one of their interns, who was 7 when HP began, to recommend books for others who grew up with Harry and are now ready for some adult titles.

Her top pick is The Magicians by Lev Grossman (Viking, 2009), “a heartrending, cathartic examination of the nature of magic and our relationship to the stories we wanted to live in as kids — required reading for anyone trying to recover from a lifelong love affair with a fictional world.”

That struck a chord; the book rose to #144 on Amazon’s sales rankings from #1,320 the day before.

For those who have already read that book, a sequel arrives next month.
