Description

Hailed by the Washington Post Book World as a "modern classic", Robertson Davies' acclaimed Deptford Trilogy is a glittering, fantastical, cunningly contrived series of novels, around which a mysterious death is woven.

World of Wonders, the third book in the series after The Manticore, follows the story of Magnus Eisengrim - the most illustrious magician of his age - who is spirited away from his home by a member of a traveling sideshow, the Wanless World of Wonders. After honing his skills and becoming better known, Magnus unfurls his life's courageous and adventurous tale in this third and final volume of a spectacular, soaring work.

essential reading for humans.

Robertson Davies was a master of his craft, and his potraits of the masters in the Deptford Trilogy are outstanding.

Hard to follow

It is a story full of symbols and family tragedies, that, if you can follow it, leads to interesting epiphanies on heartache and love.

Great North American Novel

I'm convinced, after this trilogy, that everyone after Twain trying to write a wistful, picaresque Bildungsroman and call it the Great American Novel, has actually written the Great Canadian Novel.

Compelling story; excellent reader

I listened to Fifth Business, The Manticore & World of Wonders straight through--just had to find out more about the characters.👍👍

Disappointing Finish

I finally finished Robertson Davies' modern classic, the Deptford trilogy, and I'm sorry to report that the third entry, World of Wonders, provided a disappointing finish to what started so brilliantly with the first book, Fifth Business. I almost gave World of Wonders one star, and not two, but couldnt quite bring myself to do that because it was a creative story with interesting characters. However, I just found the last book's series of biographical monologues to be really tedious.
