5.0 out of 5 stars FATTYPUFFS AND THINIFERS, 7 Nov 2004
An eternal classic by the classic French author, Andre Maurois, it is the story of two brothers who find an underground land one day, divided into two countries, one belonging to the Fattypuffs, who enjoy an hourly snack and an hourly nap, and the other to the Thinifers, who eat to live and work most of the time. The brothers, being one of each kind, are sent off to the different countries, and they have to live through the dreadful war, caused by each country's conviction that their way of life is best. After suffering, the question is resolved happily. The excellent illustrations add to the tale's wit and humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE INTERIOR LIFE, 7 Nov 2004
An original fantasy set in modern USA and in a medieval world of Light and Dark. An American housewife tunes into a world where the world of people are fighting and losing a battle against the Darkness, that is gradually over-running their world. She and they can share their thoughts and each of them assist the other in their own world. Funny, frightening, and unforgettable. Let's have more fantasies like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars CHANGEOVER, 7 Nov 2004
This review is from: Changeover (Paperback)
Diana Wynne Jones wrote this first novel some years ago, but her gifts of scintillating plots and vivid characterisation are already obvious. Set in a now vanished fantasyland of a British colony, it paints a remarkable vision of the locals and the British as they prepare to enter independence for the colonists. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A POINT OF HON OUR, 7 Nov 2004
One of the best books of the decade, appealing to both SF and fantasy fans.
Set in a near future USA where fossil fuels have run out and computers have become everyday, by plugging ineself in one can attain a virtual reality that is real. One girl makes a living by entering tournaments as a knight and gets mixed up in some near criminal activities. Luckily there is a young monk to come to her rescue. Beautifully pictured both in and out of the computer world, both plot and people are alive.
