"Hexwood" is *less* confusing than "Fire and Hemlock"?!  Your brain must 
work in a *very* different way from mine!  I found "Hexwood" insanely 
confusing on first read, and only my trust in DWJ as a writer kept me going. 
And it's *still* confusing to me, though not as badly, and in different 
ways.  I really wouldn't put it on this kind of list.

I think my picks would be...

Fire and Hemlock
Deep Secret
Howl's Moving Castle
The Tough Guide to Fantasyland
Archer's Goon

Until the sky falls on our heads...
