Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
I remembered not liking this one very much, and…yeah. It’s eerie and unsettling and somehow bothers me in a way that no other Diana Wynne Jones story ever has. I’m struggling to put exactly what’s so bothersome into words, but it’s certainly there. [Sept. 2011]
