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 (Ursula K. 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)

Most fantasies evade opportunities to make the impossible plausible, to give magic accountability in a realistic setting and moral and emotional weight in a modern novel. Jo Walton accepts the double challenge and meets it with courage and skill . . . Among Others is a funny, thoughtful, acute and absorbing story all the way through, but in the magic parts it is more than that. (Ursula K. Le Guin Guardian)

Possibly earning itself the Book of the Year title is Jo Walton's thought provoking Among Others, which stays with you for a long time after reading. It is the story of a young girl from a magical family who is sent to a mundane boarding school and, through her discovery of classic SF novels, has her mind and world expanded. (Independent on Sunday)

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

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)

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)

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)

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.
