4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle, magical and well worth the effort, 17 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Fire and Hemlock (Paperback)
Isn't life strange? Diana Wynne Jones has been writing excellent, subtle and thoughtful fantasy fiction for both a younger audience and adults for, well, a while, and yet and yet it is Harry Potter not Christopher Chant who has the merchandising deals.. now I have got that out of the way, I can say, this book is well worth the effort. It requires the reader to really engage with the book but the reward is to feel the depth and reality of the characters. It is the kind of book that does not quite leave you once you have read it - you go back and read it again and discover it is darker, deeper and more magical than you remembered. It is book about forgetting, about love and the power of myth. It is a book about a car, a horse, a girl and a quartet. It is about train journeys that end where they began and about the importance of believing in the person you love. I recommend it to you - only, be warned. I read one Diana Wynne Jones novel and ended up buying pretty much most of her work..
