I’m not done with this book yet, though I’m close. Initial thoughts:
- Read it. If you like fantasy at all – of the young adult non-epic variety – this is a book for you.
- I keep thinking “this is very much like Harry Potter” and then having to correct myself and switch that comparison around, given the date each work was written.
- There were a few pages I read last night that made me laugh out loud. Guffaw, really. It’s very rare that a book makes me burst out laughing. That alone is a good reason to read this book.
- I suspect having read this one I will now have to read all the rest of her Chrestomanci books.
Now a question – has anyone read R. Scott Bakker’s Prince of Nothing series?
