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.

A brilliant work of art , most great authors give us a magnificent display of their beliefs and philosophy but Mann shows us a brilliant debate between two conflicting schools of thought and like all great works, leaves us with more questions than answers .
