Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Mann uses a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps--a community devoted exclusively to sickness--as a microcosm for Europe, which in the years before 1914 was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality. The Magic Mountain is a monumental work of erudition and irony, sexual tension and intellectual ferment, a book that pulses with life in the midst of death.

This book is a masterpiece. I thoroughly enjoyed every sentence in this book - reread some sections for the sheer splendor of the prose.
I will read it again, preferably in the late fall - on my deck, with the sun shining and the cold crisp air imparting it's healthful ways.
I gave my copy away upon reading it - It has to shared with those who love great literature.
