***I love the imagination, the nostalgia of childhood, the twisted plotting
and the humour. But, I have to say that DWJ's "Witch Week" made me laugh
out loud on the train, whereas Harry Potter has never made me do that.
My favorite is Simon Says - painfully funny!! Every time I read about his
look of cunning... I have to put the book down and laugh. It's hard to get
past that line.
I'm into hard sci-fi and 1950s-style
rocket-to-the-moon and time-travel sci-fi, but not RPG or Dungeons and
Dragons, as such. I'm quite new to fantasy literature, but I've always been
keen on children's books. I love the Narnia series, for example.
Basically, I like anything that has good characterisation, imaginative names
and surprises at every turn, but which remains somewhat grounded in
Oh, well then - I recommend everything! Boy, I wish I could get my hands
on Fire & Hemlock - lucky, lucky person.
