Quentin stated that she never hated the series until she began dating James. After the two parted ways, Quentin began to read the manuscript. A gust of wind blew one of the pages away, causing him to chase after it. The page brought him to an abandoned lot, where he discovered a hidden portal that brought him to Brakebills University , where Eliot Waugh was waiting for him. He passes an Entrance Exam, a collection of ingenious mathematical and otherwise mind-bending problems, then discovers his magical prowess when he manipulated a set of cards with his mind. He is later admitted to matriculate there along with the other studying magicians, remains at the school for the short time before the school year starts, spending his days with Eliot and Margo, the former of whom he met when he first arrived on campus.

Early in his time at Brakebills, Quentin sees Jane Chatwin in his dreams. Visits from her act as a catalyst to draw Quentin closer to his allies, especially Alice Quinn. After having nodded off while studying, Quentin wakes up from a dream of Jane with a symbol branded into his palm that he had seen Alice studying previously. It turns out the symbol is part of her research into contacting her mysteriously deceased brother, Charlie Quinn. Upon beginning the spell to summon Charlie's spirit, the symbol disappears. A voice in Penny 's head instructs him to help, leading him and Kady to assist in the spell, which at first appears to not have worked.

Their assumption that the spell did not work is proven wrong, however, when The Beast enters Brakebills in the middle of class, killing Van Der Weghe and maiming Dean Fogg. The Beast directly addresses Quentin by name and moves to kill him, but Quentin unpauses time by using an enchanted pocket watch that Dean Fogg offers him, and the rest of his classmates fight back against the Beast. Intelligent, driven, and melancholic.

But his low self-esteem and depression sometimes hold him back. Quentin is a friendly but shy and awkward individual; he is happy to talk but often stumbles on his own words in a conversation. He has been a fan of the Fillory and Further series since his childhood and yearns to fill his life with the same adventures found in the books. Quentin, before discovering Brakebills, was suffering from isolation anxiety, stating that the feeling of not belonging anywhere was overwhelming and that he was "the most useless person to ever live".
As pointed out by Dean Fogg, however, he was never truly depressed. In reality, Quentin was lonely, and angry at the world, but this soon faded as he adjusted to his new life. As he began his college career at Brakebills, he quickly made friends with Eliot Waugh, whom he met before his Exam, and Margo Hanson, upperclassmen and Physical Kids who held most of the authority in their Discipline House, the Cottage, after the mysterious disappearance of most of the Third-year class.
A neophyte to being a Magician, Quentin initially had very little understanding and control of his magical abilities. As such, he was easily impressed, along with the rest of his classmates, at the advanced capabilities of Alice Quinn, whom he came to admire and respect.
He worried about his time at Brakebills, his fear of flunking out pushing him to ask if Alice would mentor him due to her comprehension. After the attack by The Beast, Quentin grew increasingly paranoid, as he and Alice, along with Penny and Kady, two other students in their year, performed the ritual that allowed it to get through Brakebills' wards.

The most and the least powerful. It will stay with you forever. Zen and the Art of Happiness by Chris Prentiss. Jodie, thank you for sharing this wonderful list! Is there any way to post a link for printing it out as opposed to printing all the pages in this post?
Nice list. I was happy to see so many of the books I have loved and a good number more I would still like to read. An excellent list! And there are so many in there that are actually on my to-read list.

Thanks for the recommendations! Hi Jodi, I am looking forward to hearing more about your Vipassana meditation course experience. I have recently been looking into dates around my area. I am sure it was pushing the boundaries well beyond. Lots of good books, very comprehensive list. It is great how accessible this type of info is becoming. Awareness and presence are two of the most powerful tools to develop for personal transformation.
I love this list of books! We had never heard of a family taking a sabbatical to travel prior to reading this book 10 years ago. Now that we know where to look, it seems like there are thousands of families doing just that and in 18 months, we will join their ranks. Thanks for the book suggestions. I like how it starts off with a story about a motorcycle trip to convey its message, its approach sounds similar to what you were explaining in your recent Storytelling article.

Of the two, which would you read first? They are exact opposites. One is a more sterile book, meant to be instructive in a classic sense. The other is a story, meant to be instructive in a storytelling sense. Just read them both! Great list! I love that you made this list! Books have been huge in transforming my life.
They seem like books that would be up your alley from the looks of this list! This list is wonderful and it will be such a great help when looking for the next book to read. Thank you for sharing. The first kind of reader is completely unaffected. Interesting but too out there, they say.
The second kind — they are profoundly influenced, as in, pack their bags and leave whatever they are doing in life to live the way shown in the books. The count of second category of people runs into several thousands, if not millions, in Russia where these books have started a movement. The first book is called Anastasia and it came out in and the last one is called Anasta, it was released in If you admire Vipassana and liked Ishmael, I think you will like these books.
You have been warned. Great list Jodi! Frankl, incredible book! A book I could highly recommend which I did not found on the list it only recently got released is tribe by Sebastian Junger. It address a problem society has created for us, a problem many people struggle with, the one of belonging. Water for Elephants is just a wonderful book about the circus. I loved reading every word of it. Hello Jody! Glad to see that many of those are books I loved to. Keep up with the great job! Love this list — I am glad to see that I read some of them! Thank for your thoughts and post about Vipassana!
Hi, Loved this book list, thank you so much! I saved it to favorites so I can find it again when I need suggestions. Camus was a philosopher and the plague is seen as a metaphor for the problem of evil or for human suffering and he offers suggestions through some of the main characters as to how he things we should deal with it.
