5.0 out of 5 stars a wonderful read, 6 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Charmed Life (The Chrestomanci Series, Book 1) (Audio CD)
some books just have magic. I loved this one- far more exciting than Harry Potter which just seems repetitive! I love the insects that are made large and ooe through doorways gathering up their giant legs.

Cat and his sister Gwendoline are the main characters in this wonderful novel about Chrestomanci- ( a civil servant in magic)

Gwendoline is not what you would desire in a sister, but she gets sent elsewhere and a nice character from a different parallell world replaces her. Cat has nine lives - already his horrible sister has stolen some of them.A magical story from a great imagination, this is a must for children who love fantasy and magic.

As an adult, it appeals to me very much too. Read, enjoy and delight in a fantastic world of DWJ- a far more gifted writer of unique stories than the creator of Harry potter.

I suspect that the people who rave about J K Rowlings have never heard of DWJ and are unaware that she has been creating far superior works of fantasy which will live on long have the Harry Potter furore has died down completely.

absolutely agree- every book she wrote (sadly she died some time ago) is original and there is never a boring moment. JKR writes an Enid Blyton formula type story a year in a school term- every one has the same kind of baddie, the same kind of unsuspected goodie - absolutely dull compared to the books of Diana Wynne Jones, my favourite children's writer every time. How comes she never got millions of pounds for her wonderful books?? Try Fire and Hemlock and the wonderful moments of deja vu! This is possibly my favourite book of hers- she inspired me and my own writing.
