I love all of Diana Wynne Jones's books and I can't wait to read this one. I love Howl's Moving Castle!


I was kind of disappointed because to me it was really more of an, "then, and then," book. I know the climax would be put at the Fete but to me the storyline wasn't defined enough.

I enjoyed hearing more about Aiden than Andrew. There seemed to be more things happening with his story and therefore it moved faster.

The character I enjoyed reading about the most was Groil. I think she did a great job describing him. He really sounded like a three-year-old.

I was not surprised with who Mr. Brown really was. They had already introduced Puck and some of the other character so it just seemed natural that Mr. Brown would be king because he was the most important. After finally getting a grasp about what type of magic was in this book I was dissapointed because she seemed to have borrowed it all from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

The balance between the different aspects of the book was well done. Though I don't like much romance in my books, I would have liked it to have gone a little deeper than Andrew giving us tidbits of foreshadowing, then the fight with Titania, and then "will you marry me."

I realize that my comment seems kind of negative. It's true that I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody but I hope it doesn't stop you from picking up the book if you were planning on reading it.


it's a ok book
