I read it, and thought it was OK. Some nice ideas, some silly names. It
seems to stop in the middle- a very obvious first-of-a-trilogy. I'm not
going to buy it, but I'll get the next one out of the library.
I'm about half-way through it now, and I more or less concur that it's OK,
even more than OK< with some nifty ideas. I read it straight after _Merlin_,
and DWJ is always a hard act to follow.
