Reviews & Summaries
I had a few minor bones to pick with the book, mostly concerning characters or devices that felt familiar from Howl's Moving Castle. On the whole, though, it reminded me yet again why DWJ is such a respected author: she just plain writes good books. No fuss, no pretensions, just masterful storytelling.
