5.0 out of 5 stars
My favorite book of all time, 27 Dec 2012
I first read this book when I was 11 or 12,I am now 18 and have read it many times. It is an amazing book with a vast amount of depth and both cleverly and beautifully written. If you enjoy light fantasy, and magic I would definitely recommend this book to you - what ever your age. (I have lent it to my Dad, one of his friends, my Brother and my Mum - all really enjoyed it!)
Diana Wynne Jones is apparently often viewed as a girly author, as a man I disagree. My other favourites amongst her works are: the Chrestomanci series (particularly: 'Charmed Life'; 'The Lives of Christopher Chant' and 'The Magicians of Caprona'); 'The Power of Three' and 'Eight days of Luke'.
