Review

Among Others is a wonder and a joy. (Jeff Vandermeer, New York Times)

If you love SF and fantasy, if reading it formed your teen years, if you do remember the magic you used to do, if you remember the absolute joy of first discovering those books, then read this. (Robin Hobb)

'Funny, acute, and impassioned . . . Walton's trying hard to do what I call moving the boundary: to alter, or make more permeable, the wall between the possible and the impossible. I think she almost succeeds.' (Ursula le Guin)

A hymnal for the clever and odd - an inspiration and a lifeline to anyone who has ever felt in the world, but not of it. (Cory Doctorow)

Among Others is about a young girl brought up in a magical family who is sent to a mundane, non-magical school; a captivatingly told mirror image of Harry Potter. (The Guardian)

A lovely story, unlike anything I've ever read before: funny, touching, and gently magical. (Patrick Rothfuss)

I don't believe I've seen, either in fiction or in memoir, as brilliant and tone-perfect an account of what discovering SF and fantasy can mean to its young readers... Remarkable. (Gary K. Wolfe Locus)

There are the books you want to give all your friends, and there are the books you wish you could go back and give your younger self. And then there's the rare book, like Jo Walton's Among Others, that's both. (io9.com)

Beautifully crafted... Among Others calls to those who desire a wild, magical world in place of the one they have but eventually learn that their own lives are the greatest story of all.

(Bloomsbury Review)

Compelling... Never deigning to transcend the genre to which it is clearly a love letter, this outstanding (and entirely teen-appropriate) tale draws its strength from a solid foundation of sense-of-wonder and what-if. (Publishers Weekly, starred review) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Book Description

Winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel. Winner of the 2011 Nebula Award for Best Novel. Startling, unusual, and yet irresistably readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
